  2. Pleasant Mountain Quilt Frame rails

    by , 07-31-2012 at 08:19 AM
    I hope someone out there can assist me. I have a Pleasant Mountain Quilt Frame that I have had for at least 20 years. It's Golden Oak, king size rails. I am trying to find lap or crib size rails for it, with zero success. I have looked online and can find the links all day long, but I think the links are old. I even found PMQF on Facebook, but no one answers there either. So I am left with trying to find someone who has those and wants to sell them, or if anyone on this board finds any, please ...
  3. Best invisible thread??

I use a cone holder to let the thread relax a bit before it gets to the machine. And I use a metalic needle with a large eye. Any help would be really appreciated.

So I decided to call my version Don't touch the Daisies. You can find the pattern at . It was such a fun and quick pattern to put together. Her instructions were very well written. You know how sometimes you get a pattern or a quilt book you have to go on

  5. Smocking

    by , 07-31-2012 at 12:01 AM
    I took a six hour class with Rami Kim at the Augusta Quilt Show recently and am now finishing off the bag pattern we started. One small section calls for an 18" x 24" piece to be hand smocked on a 1/2 inch grid and, wouldn't you know, there doesn't seem to be a heat transfer pattern available in that size - they all appear to be rectangular designs, suitable for vertical pleating, which isn't what I need.
    Rami was charming and showed us several fabric folding techniques but said, ...

  7. Plans for today

    by , 07-30-2012 at 02:32 AM
    It's still early morning here.
    Furbaby woke me. His bark was demanding and when I let him out, he puked. UGH!
    Well, he had enough sense to go outdoors before doing it.

    Poor baby...will have to watch him for signs of sickness although he ate a lot yesterday and probably upset his tummy.

    I plan to work on my Sampler today...not sure if I'll get a lot done. Need to do some weeding...why do weeds grow so much faster than my planted flowers!?
    I also need to ...

    How do you like it? Would you recommend it?

    If you didn't like it, don't recommend it, what do you recommend?

    I need thread for my machine - don't want to get a business license so I can go to EE Schenk (in Portland, Oregon) and don't want to really pay an arm and a leg for thread.
