  1. tin lizzie and templates

    by , 04-06-2013 at 06:35 AM
    Well I finally bought a LA. Tin lizzie 18. I need suggestions on templates to purchase that are most used. also any advice on quilting. I have been watching Linda Taylor with the quilting school and they are most interesting abd great, but as a newbie, i would appreciate info. I prefer custom rather than edge to edge. Do you break down your quilt in sections and do you stabilize each section or the outside only. thanks for any input.

    It would make things lots simpler if I could just stick with one category, but the wide assortment keeps me smiling and happy!

  3. Goth, Emo,Mosher, what's the difference

    by , 04-05-2013 at 10:56 AM
    Do you know the difference between a Goth, Emo and a Mosher? No, neither do I, but they all wear gloomy clothes and dye their hair black, choose black over any other colour, and don’t laugh much (well that’s just a personal observation, it’s like a season ticket to depression).

Size:  422.8 KBHere's a quilt inspired by Ricky Timms and his work based on the Fibonacci sequence; not mine I’m afraid, made by my Mother at the same time as my first and to the same instructions, I think we may have been lent a book or attended a workshop together.


    When I have a few hours to spare…. Some time in the next 5 years! I think I have the right two fabrics to make another one of these.

  6. Which Cuttimg Machine

    by , 04-05-2013 at 07:42 AM
    I'm new to quilting and would like to know if anyone has used an eCraft Cutter or a Silhouette Cameo? I would like to know the best machine to buy. I looked at the reviews and for the price the eCraft did the best but so many of you use the Accuquilt Go, I'm just not sure.

    You need background fabric, coordinating fabric, freezer paper, glue (washable, I use both glue stick and Elmer's School Glue), paper scissors and fabric scissors, pencil, ruler, and something to mark a circle.

    Step 1: Prepare freezer paper square. Draw the circle in the center. Make sure

  10. Singer Quantem Futura

    by , 04-03-2013 at 08:37 AM
    I have a Singer Quantum Futura CE200. I have lost the original CD. I called Singer and they want $100.00 for a new installation CD. I do have the program on my old computer but I want to use it on my laptop. Does anyone know how to help? I am currently looking for a position however, until that time comes I will not pay the money Singer is requesting. Any ideas?
