Are there any quilters in this forum living in Bowie? Looking for someone to sew and quilt with.
I am still in the process of moving but there is finally a light at the end of the tunnel! I went from a 2800 sq ft house to a 1600 sq ft. Downsizing is not fun at all but being realistic. Most of our kids are college bound next year. We won't need that much room anymore and will be less to maintain as we age. When looking for a new home, I kept in mind the need for room for my Z44 frame if it was to ever be expanded to Cali King size. I have also been thinking of storage issues. Maybe a cube

My gateway to triangles. I love the twist and chevron patterns!

hi guys, I'm new to the site.
The last time I used my Singer 413 it was working beautifully. Then stopped - No light, nothing
Can anyone give advice?
I used to have a magazine sometime in the 2000's that contained a pattern that used Lakehouse Hydrangea and Raspberry Fabric. I think it used only 2 or 3 fabrics. Does anyone remember the name of the pattern or have this pattern.
Can anybody suggest a way to remove " steam a seam" that has been ironed onto the right side of fabric instead of the wrong. What a wally!
Googled and the only suggestion is rubbing alcohol. I am sure this isn't the first time it has been done!
Thanks for your help
This is my first quilt that I have designed myself for my little boy.

It was a lot of fun looking for the clothes and working with them. They all went straight into the washing machine and were washed and then machine dried using the hottest, longest cycles available. Some of the fabrics didn't felt, so were left out.
The leaves were traced from ones I collected
