  1. Teaching Beginner quilting

    by , 07-28-2013 at 08:43 AM
    Hi, several folks have asked me to teach a beginner quilt class (machine piecing and quilting). I would love to have some suggestions as to how to plan about four sessions for beginners.

  2. Labels for quilts

    by , 07-28-2013 at 05:35 AM
    I am relatively new to quilting. Have been making gifts the past year and have yet to name and label the quilt. Where can I learn to make the labels? I've seen some very interesting ones but haven't a clue how to do this.

  5. Diamond border help

    by , 07-26-2013 at 01:30 PM
    I want to create a 3.5 inch "finished" using strip piecing to make diamond blocks. See attachment. My question is what size do I cut the dark center strip and what size do I cut the 2 light strips so I come up with a 3.5 inch block strip to use in a border instead of the size made using the instructions i found online. You can send private msg if you wold like.

We have ladies who do red work by hand, and embroider quilt blocks! It is going stong here in MO! :lol: :lol: :lol:

  7. Help please - Tumbling Blocks pattern (very confused!)

You don't have that seam when you use the traditional method with Y seams. I don't know what I hate more -- the extra seam, or making Y seams!!!

  8. Turtles everywhere!

Anyhow, I'm glad its done and I can move onto something new!
    Debbie, this is for you. Love this

  9. My Longarm is skipping stitches

My husband looked at the cabling while I was quilting and watching the cords and moving them around and we got them placed to where it wouldn't do it. But every new time I go to use the machine, it does the same thing.
