  1. I have the stripology ruler too and it has improved my cutting tremendously. I would recommend for all the reasons Baihly did.
  2. Batting tape

    I have used it on both sides and so have had it facing both the front and the back of the quilt and haven't noticed any difference at all. I use it quite often.
  3. Trimming Question

    This discussion has provided a lot of useful information. Thanks to everyone for sharing their experience.
  4. Christmas panel

    That turned out very pretty.
  5. variegated thread in bobbin

    Don't we all. Cagey, I think you are right about generalized statements. Too many of these "facts" come from one isolated incident. Testing it for yourself is always the best way to go.
  6. Wow, that woman was rude. Sorry about that. I had my fill working with rude people when I worked at the bank for years. I will probably never do quilting for people for that very reason.You just can't sort the good from the bad, they don't wear signs unfortunately.
  7. Magnifier warning

    I don't have a big magnifier but can see one in my future. I NEVER would have thought of this so really appreciate your warning. So glad you found it in time.
  8. Can Lucey handles this?

    It almost looks like the iron on vinyl to make raincoats etc. I am pretty sure it is not meant to be quilted. She may have to make a wall hanging out of this..... if it is not too heavy to hang. If she has some left, I would have her attach it to some t shirt scraps and then reheat it and see if it peels off. Even if there is a bit of residue, it would be better than having this heavy stuff on there. Then she can attach some lighter weight stabilizer, the right kind. It will be a lot of work to take apart and re-do. Guess it depends on how precious the shirts are too her.
  9. Customer Service

    So far the emails and phone calls is the only way they want to handle my thread breakage problem and I only bought it in March. I have done al the trouble shooting 2-4 times. Its not fixing anything. Nothing changes so I find myself not quilting. Very nice people, just not enough of them to go around I guess.
  10. Path of Irma and Jose

    That must be tough. Wish we could send groceries your way. I know a lot of crews are working around the clock on the power. Things are still pretty bad on the Texas coast too. Y'all hang in there.
  11. Path of Irma and Jose

    Wow, a real life COPS episode. I am glad no one got hurt by the guy with the gun. Glad you have your water and power back. Hope things return to normal for you soon.
  12. Is This "Normal" - Update

    All I can offer is empathy. I know how it feels to be worried about running short. I hope it works out for you.
  13. Day at the lake quilt

    That is awesome. Just love it. Thanks for sharing.
  14. Pink Halloween Quilt

    My daughter and I just adore this quilt. Everything, and I do mean everything, about it is just fantastic. We love Halloween and a Halloween quilt to support breast cancer awareness is just awesome. Just love it. P.S. I want a bat bra.
  15. what does member Reputation mean

    Had to give David and "atta boy" for the "atta boy" y'all.
  16. my first quilt on george

    What a great quilt. I haven't seen that pattern before. Love it. You chose some great colors.
  17. Scrappy nine patch

    Beautiful quilt. Distracted or not it came out a winner!
  18. Path of Irma and Jose

    Glad to hear of the ones who are safe. Hope others check in when they can. Fingers crossed for everyone.
  19. Irma and Millie

    Sure hope y'll came through ok and stay ok.
  20. Installation of Dee-Lites on Millie

    Congrats on your new Millie. I wish I would have had the room for a larger machine than Lenni but it just wasn't to be. Can't wait to see all your creations when you get her up and running!
  21. Path of Irma and Jose

    Thinking about the folks in the path of Irma. Hoping for the best, fearing the worst.
  22. In Harvey's path

    Yes, unfortunately they do have lots to worry about. I had just read Lynn1234's post and felt sad that folks felt left out. And I have read some accounts from Harvey where folks are feeling forgotten by the government. They aren't seeing much aid, water, food etc coming their way. There's just such widespread destruction. Must be hard to keep the faith that everything will work out. My heart goes out to them. And now another hurricane about to hit. So scary.
  23. Dog gone cute

    Really cute. I love the quilting you did on it. Congrats on the new baby.
  24. In Harvey's path

    Same thing is happening here. Most of the news is about Houston, but the other smaller towns, where it came ashore, are not talked about much. Everyone was equally affected so I wish the coverage was a bit more equal. I hate to think the other folks feel left out or forgotten on top of everything they endured.
  25. Picnic Quilt

    Beautiful quilt and quilting. I love the colors in it, but to picnic on?....nah. Just use it to nap after the picnic.
