    We were told we could use thread we had on hand (wrong) and that it was easier to learn free hand than to follow a pattern with the laser. (not for the uncreative

What I would really like is to have categories with photos of the quilts.

    So far I have subscribed to Quilter's World digital

  5. The start of my Vege garden

    by , 04-07-2013 at 06:46 PM
    It's been on my mind lately that I want to start a vegetable garden.
    I've been researching quite a bit but now it is time.

    I'm thinking this would get me out of the for walls of my house into a little bit of sun that we have been having in between the rain. I've had this dreaded flu for 3 weeks now and need to get up and going now that I am starting to feel better.

    It is making me feel a bit more positive and it will show that I am ready to face the world again ...
  6. What to do with an idea?

    by , 04-07-2013 at 05:18 PM
    I have an idea for a new unique use for a product. It could be very profitable to the manufacturer/seller. It would be a new way to market the product and use it. I don't know what to do with my idea. Do I contact the manufacturer or just tell everyone who might buy it and use it? Do you think they will pay me for the idea?
  7. A flowery Union Jack

    In my stash was the red and cream, both Liberty fabric scraps, and the navy, a 1980s Laura Ashley dress, I cant find a picture of the dress but I guess if you were around in the 80s youd remember those dresses, huge mutton leg sleeves, drop waist, voluminous skirts,(think a newly married Princess Diana). Needless to say.. There is enough left to make something else as well, and I already have an idea.

  9. Gold standard pc quilter adapater kit

    by , 04-06-2013 at 10:24 AM
    I recently purchased a New Joy Gold Standard Frame and a PC Quilter in hopes to be able to use them together. To my surprise, they cannot be used together unless I have this adapter in order to place the PC Quilter carriage on the New Joy Frame. The problem is New Joy does not make the Gold Standard Frame anymore and therefore doesn't make the adapter. I am hoping that someone out there is not using their frame and may have the adapter for sale. I have attached a photo of the kit to this post.If ...
