    Have batting to put behind that faux black velvet border.
    Backing to do (have to hide some uneven seems that I didn't intend)
    Finish quilting.
    Green binding.

    Now here is my problem. I didn't take notes on batting I was using. I only have enough to do the 2 sides. So I went and got some 80/20 and pray it's close. So I have 2 options here.
    1). Use the new batting of 80/20 for all 4 sides

I was told that even the quilt police at quilt shows are accepting machine binding now, especially those with the flange.
    Here's a short tute on making binding with a flange:

  4. Grandma's Wheeler & Wilson No. 9 Treadle Sewing Machine - Bobbin!

    by , 07-27-2017 at 11:38 AM
    My hubby and I just drove to Topeka, Kansas to pick up my grandmothers treadle from my sister, who had been kind enough to bring it that far from Long Beach, CA. It is a coffin top, with a beautiful oak treadle cabinet, and I have spent the entire day researching its manufacture date, instruction manual, etc. I have just taken a peek at the bobbin, after watching several YouTube videos on threading the machine, but I am totally puzzled! I have never seen a sewing machine with an unremovable "cage" ...

    Hello! I have inherited this machine and am interested in knowing how old it is. Under the name S.Davis it says London. Instruction book also lists High st, Borough. S.E. as an address.
    The serial number is 114383. Cannot find date on anything. Beautiful wood case (with key) and some parts. Original manual as well.
    I do not sew so if anyone is interested, it is available.

  7. Adding loops to top of quilt

    by , 07-25-2017 at 06:47 AM
    I have finished a wedding signature quilt. Now the bride wants me to add loops to the top for hanging. I've done that with a sleeve but not sure how to add loops so they look nice.
    Any suggestions? Thanks.

  8. I ruined my king size scrap quilt.

Because of the intricate pattern, I was going thru 1 marker per block, and at $6.00 per pen x 25 it was getting pricey. So what did dumb Jane do? She tested frixion pens on samples that disappeared easily.

    by , 07-18-2017 at 01:55 AM
    Being new to this blog, I would like to add my experience in NOT being able to see the underside of a quilt on a longarm.
    There was one request on here as to what kind of camera to use.

    What I found, that I just mounted last night, is called an Endoscope. The one I purchased from Amazon, has an Android connector and the camera has LED's, and a 15 foot cable. Then you download the free Endoscope APP and you are ready to go,
    Simply route the cable up to the top of the longarm, ...
