  1. Almost Done with Another

    by , 02-26-2014 at 07:39 PM
    Another grandson and his quilt just about done. Will probably finish it by Friday and attach picts. Then I need to start working on ideas for VBS and maybe make the neighbor a quilt. My last quilt will be for my Christmas granddaughter that is the youngest of my four, so will have to come up with something special for her birthday and Christmas present. It took me so long to get into the mood to sew this winter and my machine has been acting up too. Oh well, next blog will have picture.

  2. My first mid- arm Machine

    by , 02-26-2014 at 12:02 PM
    Hi everyone, I am new to the blog thing, in fact this is the first thing I have ever posted. I bought a used Grace Machine Quilter with a Juki TL 98 machine. Included was a black box called Quilter's Cruise Control but it does not have any connections. I think it needs the optical encoder hardware and probably the stylus but does anyone know what else I am missing and where to find the parts? There was also a speed control box with a thread cutter button and a large foot pedal that also has a thread ...

    If you use the designs shown here, enlarge to a 9.5" unfinished block and trace the star as needed

    I have traded up from Viking Opal 670 to Sapphire 960Q. Do any Sapphire owners have quilting, decorative, embroidery-like creations that you would like to share pictures of? I would love to see them and I think other Viking owners would be inspired!! Thanks,

  5. suggestions of Phoenix quilt shops?

    by , 02-25-2014 at 09:01 PM
    The DH and I leave Sat for a week in Phoenix and we can't wait--besides the chance to leave winter behind for a week of 70's temperatures, my FIL died last week and we've been very busy with funeral, etc--not to mention being in that numb, mourning phase despite his 92 year long life being so blessed in so many ways. And we were all blessed by his life.

    The PDF has a 5 pointed star, shaded light and dark points in 3 different styles. Hope you enjoy them.

  8. Square in a square

It's very easy to manipulate your quilt sandwich to make these gentle curves, and because you're using a straight stitch you don't have to worry about the usual issues of stitch length and tension that you would with FMQ. I drew up a set of diagrams for you:

  9. Question about Warm & Natural... I need some great advice!!!

    So, does W&N usually give that crinkly/used look after washings??
    What batting do you use in wallhangings?
    Thank you for your ideas.

    I am looking for an old Glennen Omni Stitch machine. I have one and just about wore it out. sure could use another one. If anyone has any idea where I might find one would be greatly appreciated. I realize they are very old and chances of getting one are slim. I just thought I would give it a try. thanks for listening. Carol
