  2. Older Tin Lizzie NON-Computerized

    by , 04-18-2014 at 08:28 PM
    I purchased an older non-computerized Tin Lizzie at an Estate Sale with from it is beautiful and I am in love! Especially being a beginner. However my big down fall is it didn't come with a manual. I have searched high & low for one with no success. My last straw is to call Tin Lizzie BUT being a newbie I am scared to death to talk to them as to can I answer the questions that they need to know. Al I can find on the machine is Model# Cat#, I also know it's not computerized & has a phone ...

    .
    My Husband was in the military and he was deployed overseas in 2006. For his return from deployment I wanted to make him something crafty. I wanted it to be something I had not done before and something that would challenge me.

    My grandmother and great grandmother were both quilters. If a new baby was coming or born they got a quilt... Sweet 16 get a quilt, get married get another quilt. I got my 1st quilt from my great grandmother but dragged it around to its demise probably

I did 9 rows of 7 blocks, plus the extra half-block border that completes the points. Haven't decided on a quilting pattern yet, but I'm tossing around an idea. Thanks for looking!

  5. New to Quilting

    by , 04-15-2014 at 10:23 AM
    Hi! I am new to quilting. I have helped my grandma sew stamped embroidered blocks, but haven't really done anything else before. My grandmother has made the most beautiful quilts by hand (all of it by hand) and I am wanting to continue this tradition in my family. First project was a monkey quilt for my son... that I started two or three years ago. I know I know- I still haven't gotten all the blocks done... sheesh. I am getting back into it and hoping to finish this fall. Though, it has been ...

    You don't need to be old to remember that trick. I don't rip fabric but that is one way my mother taught me.

    If you don't like ripping, she also taught me to pull threads and then cut along the line it makes. Find a thread along the line you want to cut. At the edge of the fabric you pull it up with a straight pin and

  8. Advice on New Jersey Quilt Shops please?

    by , 04-12-2014 at 04:54 PM
    I will be traveling to southern New Jersey and then on to Lancaster County, PA in late June. If you live in or near these areas do you have a favorite quilt or fabric shop? I really need your advice as I have never been to either of these areas and have no idea where to start. Also, any must see places? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.....Judi from Denver.

  9. Quilt as you go

I want to try this but that makes me a little nervous, also it seems like the seams might be pretty bulky. I want to try quilt as you go but I don't want to hand stitch the back or add sashing so this seemed like a good alternative. Thanks!
