  1. Marjorie, an 88 year old, pieced this quilt last year. She wanted me to quilt it with feathers. Since she didn't use cornerstones, it was hard for her to keep the blocks straight and in line. So Fine on top and Bottom Line in the bobbin. Hobb 80/20. scrap (4) by Libby G, on Flickr scrap by Libby G, on Flickr scrap (2) by Libby G, on Flickr scrap (5) by Libby G, on Flickr
  2. When you use magnifico do you thread it through all three holes. This thread is finicky for me. Sometimes works, sometimes doesn't. Really a PITA. Love your designs. You've really mastered Quilt Path.
  3. I use the little one and the castle all the time. Love the feel of them and the markings.
  4. I like the white between the blocks as it really sets off the pattern.
  5. So many of my friends are getting hit with this virus. I've just been staying home and quilting. Hope you feel better soon.
  6. A customer made this using her flannel scraps. So Fine on top, Bottom Line in the bobbin. 80/20 Hobbs. I used the Quiltazoid to make the spirals. I bought this when I first started quilting, and I try to use it every time I can. It's no longer being made, but I use it for circles and crosshatching.

  7. Love it! The swirls really look great on it.
  8. Glad to see your back, Patty Jo. I wish some of our other "older" friends would return too.
  9. The nice thing about APQS machines is that they last and last. You won't go wrong with an older machine.
  10. I love the star sashing. Even though I don't have IQ I can still use that design.
  11. Lisa, when I first started quilting, forum members were talking about the quiltazoid. Since I was new to quilting, I thought it would be a good tool. It will make circles from 1 inch to 12 inches with all the sizes in between. I have the crosshatch boards with it and the spirals. Today I'm going to load a patriotic quilt and see if I can use the stars from one of the boards. I'm trying to get my moneys worth! lol Carmen, this was a mystery quilt done at a guild four years ago. There are basically two blocks. The first block has FOUR four patches with background and fabric, ONE four patch with all fabric, and FOUR plain blocks. The other block is an Ohio Star. My friend said she'll get the pattern to me and I'll make sure you have the rest of the directions. She lives an hour away so it may be a few weeks, but hey, you can start on block one. 2 1/2 inch strips.
  12. Congratulations, Linda. I love the way you quilted the sashings. I always think I have to quilt all the way down and I love how you just stopped. Of course, the block work is beautiful. Love the different designs. Did they give you some kind of ribbon???
  13. Welcome! I too sold a handiquilter after six months so I could purchase the Millenium. Looking forward to seeing your work.
  14. Congratulations, Diane. I LOVE everything about this quilt. The colors, the pattern, and the quilting. Well-deserved.
  15. My friend, Susan, made this quilt with her leftover 30's fabric. She wanted feathers and I do love making them. Hobbs 80/20. So Fine on top and Bottom Line in the bobbin. 30's scrap by Libby G, on Flickr 30's scrap by Libby G, on Flickr 30's scrap by Libby G, on Flickr
