    Wanting circle lord boards

    tyquilter I need your email address to send you pictures and information about all the boards I have for sale
  5. I have been working hard to make quilting and quilt related items a full time job. One of those projects was to publish my own patterns- something I had dreamed about doing for years and years. I have quilted wholecloth designs for clients before, and for promotional items for a few dye artists. Everybody raved about wanting to learn to do it, so I decided to create a line of patterns that would teach people. My Choose Your Own Adventure patterns let you create over 200 different quilts from a single paper pattern, by mixing and matching various design options. They also teach techniques for filling spaces, free motion quilting, and ruler work. Here is a picture of two quilts created from the first pattern. Cindy Rich, of Twisted Sister Quilting, also quilted one. I don't have a picture of hers to share, but she has it on Facebook. To learn more about it, go to my blog www.sweettsquilting.blogspot.com or the store pages.
  6. YES!! When I upgraded machines I got the Bliss track system. Amazing glide. Circles and diagonal lines are so easy now.
  7. Love, love, love it. Great cross hatching, and super cute quilt

    Ideas for quilting?

    You might have already had this quilted, but as a quilter I would use the design in the blue fabric to create an overall design, then do something semi custom in the diamond shapes. Probably feather in the outer border then ribbon candy or wishbones in the center of each diamond. Budget friendly, unique, and one of a kind.

    Adorable
  14. My Millie is doing something strange. I will be sewing along, doing great with no problems, then it will suddenly vroom and race the needle and break the thread. Then it works fine again for an hour or so. Any ideas?

  16. Clamshells or baptist fans would look wonderful on this unique quilt
  17. There are several classes being offered that are for free motion and ruler work on DSM. Also, there will be vendors of all kinds there. And, the show itself will be stunning. I always take close up photos of specific quilting designs I want to come home and try.
  18. Who is going this year? and what classes are you taking?
  19. Thank God that this was discovered and the surgery took care of it. I will prayer for continued health for you.
