  3. First two lessons done

    by , 02-09-2014 at 03:24 AM
    The first two practical lessons from Quilter's Academy went pretty fast. First up was class 130, lesson five - making the center of Carrie's sampler quilt. I'm actually making two, one in red and one in green. The plan is to make a reversible quilt, green on one side and red on the other. It turned out pretty well for a first-ever project on the sewing machine.


    The green one looks better in real ...

This quilt makes me smile

  5. Sewing Machine needles breaking!

    by , 02-08-2014 at 12:13 PM
    My mom was cleaning out her sewing room and gave me her Handi Quiliter and Juki TL-98E sewing machine. I got my quilt all loaded, and have quilted about 1/4 of it when the needle broke. I proceeded to put in a new needle and 5 needles later, I cant for the life of me figure out why all of a sudden the needle keeps breaking. I have read, and re-read the manual to make sure I am putting the needle in correctly and have the machine threaded right.. Does anyone know if you have to use the Juki ...

  9. It's a washout"

Make sure to check your ink to be sure it says PIGMENT and not DYE. A quick tell is if your printer uses 1 black cartridge and 1 tri-color cartridge your printer does not support pigment cartridges.

  10. Chenille

    by , 02-06-2014 at 06:21 AM
    I'm thinking of adding some chenille to a quilt. I've never sewn with it before. Are there pros or cons with chenille? AND... where do I buy it?
