  2. Tree skirt part 2

    by , 01-16-2014 at 01:36 PM
    I've added the sashing. There actually is a split in the center so the (fake) tree trunk can go thru. I also realized I could use it on one of my tables, just put something over the split...

Size:  137.9 KBSorry that I can't seem to get the "up close" picture posted--I've switched to an inherited laptop with Vista and can see why it was replaced so quickly--trying to avoid having to buy a new laptop since my other one is ANCIENT, but this one's too frustrating.

  6. Victory on the Long Arm!

    by , 01-14-2014 at 05:32 PM
    I had a charity quilt for one of the guilds I belong to and was dreading the quilting. It was just not square. A fellow LA quilter told me it would be ok--only off a little when we did the "fold into quarters" test. So got it on the frame and found that all 3 of the borders where "off"--little pulls/tucks where they attached to each other even before I did anything! and the blocks were all wonky,too. Lots of potential for puckers and one even had about a 2" place that ...

  9. Craftsy Classes

    by , 01-14-2014 at 05:20 AM
    I have lost all but three Craftsy classes as of yesterday in my account. Have any of you had this trouble? I recently purchased three classes and enrolled in several free ones. I probably had 9-12 classes in my account and all three of the ones I bought are gone plus others. I emailed them but haven't heard back. Any suggestions?
  10. Advice needed!

    by , 01-12-2014 at 02:44 PM
    I have taken on a project of making "memory quilts" from my husband's grandparents clothes. Since I have to make seven, I'm going to do lap quilts. I was able to get some sweatshirts, jeans, and two or three t-shirts. I have a few questions... Hopefully you can help!!! 1- Do I need "heavy duty" needles for the denim? (Levi's) ...
