Well, today is Labor and I know many go to the Lake and cook out. I will spend my labor day sewing. Which for me is relaxation! I send hours and days sewing and find no problem with. My sewing area is a corner in my living room, I get to be with my family and sew at the same time. Today I will work on finishing the Reunion quilt and then I think I am going to learn to use my Babylock3-407 my cousin gave to me yesterday. Maybe make something new for my new grandbaby, Mary-Jayne!

Help Please! I would appreciate any tips and advice on using invisible thread to free motion fused applique leaf shapes to quilt border. Do it put the invisible thread into the bobbin also? Any advice on setting tension would be helpful too. Thanks in advance!
Has anyone quilted a piece using men's silk ties? I would like to 3 small wall hangings using my husband's ties. I'm thinking about paper piecing. Any suggestions for working with silk and pattern suggestions?
I'm toying with my Hexie quilt ideas while sewing them together. I'm thinking of enlarging the hexagons from 2.2 inches to 5 inches then cutting them in half so there will be a seam down the center of them. Maybe a 6 inches or larger - would look better? I may have to toy with the size. My idea is to give them a real hand worked look.
I love making hexies there is something zen about hand sewing them.
I would have never dreamed I would be hand quilting and enjoying
