This is the first quilt I pieced. I put it together beginning in 1979 but only got it quilted in 2013. It is king-size, and it was quilted with a pantograph of a sleeping cat by Penny Jurgens (Marshfield, MO).
Here are a couple of started projects I had put aside and ignored for months...finally finished them yesterday and today.
These ties are amazing! Made of silk, wool, acetate, cotton, polyester, even knits.. These might be useful for quilts, right? A friend makes quilts for the homeless, so I'll ask her if she wants them after they're washed.. The grubbiest ones will be tossed into File 13...
A few have famous names on them, but I don't expect they're worth anything now..
I am looking buy a long arm quilting machine....used...not sure how much I am looking to spend....any info anyone could provide would be wonderful...thank you...

We have a Tin Lizzie Ansley26. All of a sudden the top thread keeps breaking and shredding. We have changed the needed multiple times. Re-threaded the machine as well. Checked that the needle is in properly. Changed thread back to the thread that WAS working wonderfully - but not now. Any thoughts???
I bought a package of 2 1/2" stonehenge strips. I started working on a quilt and cutting what I needed, sewed it together and nothing was matching up the way it should be. I thought I was measuring wrong but when I started to measure the strips, some are 2 1/2" and some are 2 1/4". What would you do? Should I take this mess back to the store and get a refund? Not sure they will do that as I have cut a dozen of the strips already. So frustrating!!!*
Am now working on her quilt, got the top done, may take a break, we shall see. This is the last of the grandchildren, that range from 22 down to 10., and this one is for the ten year old. Will send another picture when it is finished as well. Her birthday is Christmas, but may send this early.

I put on the regular darning foot, fine. BSR on a light fabric ( same thread and set-up) fine. I am just wondering if anyone else has trouble with skipped stitches using the BSR on black?

black dominoes with beige dots and beige dominoes with black dots. It is solid dominoes. Each domino is about 2 ins. tall and 1 in. wide..One row will have 2 black and then a beige or 3 black and one beige.
Each domino is outlined in red If this is not understandable, When my DH comes in he will send a picture.
