I finally finished my RT top tonight! I did the best I could with the photos, as I have nowhere to lay out such a large quilt.

I square up units (HSTs, etc.) in groups of 10 or 20 as I press them. If I'm constructing blocks in assembly line fashion, I square up when all the blocks are put together. If I'm making unique...

I still have my original cover. I just cover the cover with large pieces of flannel, which I wash when they get dirty. They aren't fitted, but they stay in place. If I'm pressing a long piece of...

I buy everything on line, so cannot evaluate beforehand. But I've never had a problem with the quality of fabric.

I've started on my smaller geese in lighter pinks -- much happier with them. I finally decided on a border plan I liked, but unfortunately, because of the fabric wasted in the first batch of geese, I...

Your problems sound very much like what I faced with my old machine (a Singer from the 80s). When I got a new machine, things were so much easier, and I couldn't believe how many tops I'd managed to...

Here is my RT center. I think I'll have to call it 'Rhododendrons in an Ice Storm' because of the icy look the pale gray B blocks give it. I had intended all of my butterflies to be flying east...
