  1. You absolutely deserve to keep that ribbon!
  2. Maybe your needle got slightly bent in the first obstruction incident, and hit the needle plate instead of the hole when you restarted. As annoying as glasses can be (can they never stay clean????), they do have some benefits. Glad you and your Millie have all parts in working order.
  3. Too cute! Really like your design choices. Awesome job.
  4. Beautiful! Love the quilting. That must have been a lot of starts and stops.
  5. Great job! Glad to see that I'm not the only one who uses green painters tape in ways it was not originally intended.
  6. I'm very sorry for your loss. Beautiful quilts and congrats on the new Millie.

    Is it a new machine? Have you hit a ruler or broken a needle? Your machine may need to be timed.

    Awesome! Thank you for sharing your process. Definitely fit for a princess.
  9. Batting

    Quilter's Dream wool is my favourite batting. Great quilting definition, soft, washable, and breathable.
  10. pool noodles for quilts

    You could cover the pool noodle with a sleeve of fabric - old sheets for example - before rolling your quilt around it.

    Love what you've done so far. It will definitely be a keepsake.
  12. Awesome job. The cross-hatching really enhances the cross-stitched blocks.
  13. I have only every used poly/wool combination, when double batting. The wool does seem to "suck up" a bit more during the quilting, but not to the extent that you have experienced. It could be that the cotton fiber in your bottom batt is causing the wool to draw in more than normal.
  14. Ghost the diamond shape in the black rectangles. In each resulting chevron row you could do leaf meander or molar feathers. The top and bottom setting triangles could be an arc with whatever you used in the chevrons repeated. I think you will have to quilt something in the white, even if it's just a couple of spaced lines.
