  1. Hundreds of old neckties... Are they any good for small quilts? for men?

    by , 03-16-2014 at 06:39 PM
    These ties are amazing! Made of silk, wool, acetate, cotton, polyester, even knits.. These might be useful for quilts, right? A friend makes quilts for the homeless, so I'll ask her if she wants them after they're washed.. The grubbiest ones will be tossed into File 13...

    A few have famous names on them, but I don't expect they're worth anything now..

    Suggestions?

  4. Top thread keeps breaking

    by , 03-16-2014 at 10:51 AM
    We have a Tin Lizzie Ansley26. All of a sudden the top thread keeps breaking and shredding. We have changed the needed multiple times. Re-threaded the machine as well. Checked that the needle is in properly. Changed thread back to the thread that WAS working wonderfully - but not now. Any thoughts???
  5. Strips

    by , 03-16-2014 at 06:26 AM (Strips)
    I bought a package of 2 1/2" stonehenge strips. I started working on a quilt and cutting what I needed, sewed it together and nothing was matching up the way it should be. I thought I was measuring wrong but when I started to measure the strips, some are 2 1/2" and some are 2 1/4". What would you do? Should I take this mess back to the store and get a refund? Not sure they will do that as I have cut a dozen of the strips already. So frustrating!!!*

  7. BerninaSR and black fabric

    Each domino is outlined in red If this is not understandable, When my DH comes in he will send a picture.

  9. My current project

    by , 03-11-2014 at 10:37 PM
    I am working on a quilt with 52 blocks, each with 4 half-square triangles and 4 hourglass blocks plus a plain square in the middle. All the hourglass blocks have four colors laid out the same in each block so I can't do the shortcut method but have to sew all the triangles separately. That's a lot of triangles!

    I usually do a lot of chain-piecing but even that is taking a long time, so I'm doing some chain-piecing and then taking a break to make a few blocks. It's going to be wonderful ...

I used black Hobbs 80/20 batting, red thread to outline the poppies, black thread on the black fabric, green thread on the green fabric. On the face of the quilt the poppies
