This quilt makes me smile
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

I hope this is the right place to show it. Thank you very much for your warm welcome aboard.
This was my first attemp to make a quilt 30 years ago when I was in college. The proyect was bigger but it went UFO several month later ..... (too much study and... partys I think ).
Two years ago I rescued it from my mom's attic, I re-learned to crochet

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.
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?

Any thoughts? The blue reminds me of the sea and I think of some kind of winding path too.
Amy's Quilt At long last I have finished Amy's quilt. It was started a few years ago at a workshop taken at Quorn Country Crafts.The pattern is called Around the World, Amy went to the shop a few days before the workshop and chose the fabrics, however when I came to start the main fabric that she had chosen wouldn't work in the quilt as the pattern would have been lost when cut into small rectangles. I therefore used this for the binding and to make a large cushion cover to go with
Fellow quilters, I am new at quilting. I have sewn forever, but I just bought my first Bernina and am ready for some serious quilting experiences! Also, I am expecting my first granddaughter, so fabric has taken a front row in my upcoming MeeMaw life! My dilemma is this: I have found a particular yellow fabric in a fat-quarter at JoAnns. But the 2 stores in my town are no longer carrying this fabric. I understand that this fabric is made specifically for Joanns and all of the yellows are coded
