    Rodney do you do repairs on the vintage machines? I live in Tacoma WA and picked up a machine that needs to be semi cleaned up and make sure it's in great working order. If you don't can you recommend someone?

I may end up using one of those for the actual quilting. My 1948 Singer 66 will get the piecing work. It only does a straight stitch but it does it quite well.
    The quilt snatching sounds like something my mother might have done. Take it for the compliment it is.

    Thanks everyone. Keep in mind I started quilting (hand applique about 40 years ago). So I could do most any type of quilting by hand. When the hands went bad due to chemo I had to go entirely with machine work and ONLY my applique translated well. My 40 year old machine does only straight and zig zag (no hopping foot available) since it is an industrial type machine which I love and can service myself. I once timed an effort; three weeks to piece a simple background and two and a half hours for the applique. I envy those who do such beautiful quilting and piecing but will be content with my corner.
    Yesterday I PLAYED. Traced and started to fuse hockey players, baseball players, mouse, rabbit, Amish girls, eagle, flowers etc. All now sitting in baggies ready to cut and assemble. Darn owl looks mad enough to eat them all!

    Got lots of sign-ups. Will be going through and updating the list tomorrow. SO excited!!! I'm really excited to see all of the newbie quilters. ALL skill levels are welcome here. No one is perfect. I was intimidated last round when I participated. My partner made it easy with loving blue and white. I did a churn dash with all different centers. She made me a stunning fan quilt that my lil man (3 year old) keeps trying to steal because "it's pretty momma!!!" When I partner y'all up, there is a reason for who gets who. Y'all are making it easy this time. Just a couple more weeks and everyone can shop their stash or the stores and get started!!!

    I won't claim to be anywhere near an expert. I just started playing with these machines a few months ago. The old machines tend to be pretty sturdy and idiot proof. It's actually pretty hard to kill one. I'm happy to take a look and see what I can do for you. I'll send you a PM with my contact info.

    What the heck?! I just wander around a little bit and see that this wonderful exchange is happening again. Hmmm, can I get one done by August. I am on a pledge not to start anything new this year but to finish the kits and UFOs that I have already accumulated. Going to have to send in my info but first check out what I have to offer. I know I have this red/black dancing feet Robbing Peter to Pay Paul quilt that has been started, or is it one of those scrap bag quilts I started, or a Buggy Barn chick quilt I started, or a log cabin I started, or a hunter star in fairy frost, or a fall colored quilt with assorted blocks, or an anitque block quilt, or a plaid quilt, or, the list goes on. These ones stay in the size requirement.
    Thinking an applique quilt would be wonderful to have. Hint applique person who can do that part, but not the quilting which I can do quite well.

    YEA!!! Sign-ups are looking good!!! So...I need everyone to check their in/sent boxes and make sure you have room in them. If possible, please clean out some of your sent or received messages. The message system on here allows a total of 500 in/sent messages in your mailbox. When in doubt, look at the bottom of your in box screen and it will tell you how many messages you have out of your 500 limit.

    I've tried to send a couple of people pm's the last couple of days and they keep getting bounced back....
