  1. Today
  2. Thanks Sharon but I want to use Red Snappers when I'm not using the Zippers, so need to construct an extension.
  3. Thanks, Robin, I will keep that in mind!!!
  4. I just pin to the zippers - works just fine for me.
  5. Hi I want to get some new 'extension' leaders to zip on and off my existing ones. I'm thinking I can make these but wondered what weight canvas I should buy. Also, I haven't found any canvas that is 12ft wide so is it OK to use the length or selvedge parallel to the rollers? Many thanks for any advice you can offer. Chris
  6. Thanks again everybody. Just a note, the quilt was actually 114 1/4 x 100 before quilting and after quilting it is 112 x 98 1/2. I figured it would shrink up a bit with the quilting. The "Ripples" panto was a medium to large density pattern. 100% cotton batting (preshrunk). Now that I have made it king sized the hard way, I know how I could have done it a lot easier, so Betsy if you need to make a king size and don't want to do it by adding borders, give me a holler.
  7. Beautiful quilt, gorgeous colors. This is perfect in your room.
  8. Pamela, Now that you have had you Millie for some time now, are you having fun! I have had mine 3 years and I fall Deeper in Love every day. Except the cleaning part - but it must be done to keep her singing and not grawling
  9. Robin, this is wonderful! I am going to make a king-sized bargello wedding quilt for our daughter and son-in-law, whenever they decide on colors. They have just moved into a new house, so maybe sooner, rather than later. They looked up bargello quilts on-line, and were surprised to see how many variations there are. (I have one hanging in our house, which was the only way they knew about them.) I will show them your quilt, and maybe the book will have just what they want. Thanks for sharing!!
  10. Beautiful!!
  11. Awesome! I've done one, a small one, and loved the process.
  12. Thanks so much. The quilt is 114 x 100. I wanted it big enough to drape on the sides and also to allow a little for shrinkage when it gets washed. I did preshrink my Hobbs cotton batting but did not preshrink the batiks so we'll see how that goes someday... And Cagey, something that goes with my green walls was just what I was going for. The wall color is called pale opal and I love it, but it Is not the easiest color to find coordinates for, even with all the fabric out there in the world. Isn't it amazing how many colors of a color there are?? I love the movement on this quilt pattern, too. I live by a huge lake and I was thinking of water with a little sand and grass when choosing my colors. My husband's response when he saw it on the bed the first time was "it's crooked." See what I deal with in my life everyday? Gotta love'em. Robin in MT
  13. Yes it is still available. We are about 8 hours from Memphis. Are you wanting to look at it first or would you be interested in meeting somewhere?
  14. It's beautiful, and I love your choice of pantos for this one.
  15. Beautiful. The colors are great. It is like wow and calm all at the same time.
  16. Beautiful. Love the colours.
  17. Robin; It looks gorgeous, and goes well with your green walls. Thank you for sharing. Cagey
  18. Wow! That is stunning! How many inches wide and long is it?
  19. Would love to.have your machine but I live in Memphis TN!
  20. Is this machine still available? Have no.idea how far you are bit I.am.in Memphis, TN.
  21. Wow! It is beautiful; alot of movement and gorgeous colors.
  22. Just off my quilt frame this week, "Surf Song" bargello. From the book Twist and Turn Bargello Quilts by Eileen Wright. Needed a king size quilt for my bed and instead of adding borders to make a king sized "Surf Song" I kept building the bargello to the edges. I quilted it with IQ and the panto Ripples by Lorien Quilting. I will make coordinating batik pillowcases and of course still need to bind the beast!! Robin in MT
  23. Yesterday
  24. You can also just zip tie them to the front axle if it's close enough. Zeke.
  25. Thank you, Lisa! The pictures help a lot!
  26. This may not help you if you are buying a Mille and own a Lenni. I have a Mille and my husband removed my thread cutter and my Hartley base still fits; however, he also created a small plastic insert to fill in the gap on top where the thread cutter cover mounted to the top; next to the throat plate. We left the housing in tact so the base would still fit. I don't have a picture of my base on the machine as I loaned it to a friend with a new Mille to play with; but I have attached a couple pics anyway. https://www.flickr.com/photos/callenderquilts/36303127980/in/dateposted-public/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/callenderquilts/36303118920/in/dateposted-public/
  27. Joanne If that machine has the needle positioner (single stitch) it would be a good candidate for an IQ installation. IQ runs in non regulated mode. That may open it up to some more potential buyers. Nigel
