  1. Very nice! And what a thoughtful gift. I'm sure she'll treasure it.
  2. Problems with top thread pulling to back.

    I'm hoping that's the problem :). I know I don't. I've never spent so much time stopping and starting on my quilting. Very frustrating.
  3. Problems with top thread pulling to back.

    Yes, I did the WD40 and then oiled it. Made no difference. I can't see any burrs, but maybe I need to pull the hook assembly and feel for one. Thanks for the ideas.
  4. I have been quilting with my milli for 8 years and just recently started having a problem with the machine pulling the top thread to the back, and getting caught up in the hook and bobbin area. I would have to cut the thread and then pick out the thread that was in the hook assembly. I thought it must be a timing issue, so I redid the timing. It got worse! Now the top thread goes to the back, and makes a big knotted mess, and then continues on as if nothing happened. Then occasionally, there will be a big loopy stitch. It doesn't actually skip a stitch, just leaves a loop, then continues on with normal stitches for a while. When I pulled the last quilt off the frame, it had these "knots" about every foot or so of quilting. When I cut the knots out, it takes some of the stitches out. I would post photos, but the lady really wants her quilt so I already trimmed all the mess. (I should mention I was using King Tut thread. Normally, I use Glide) Any ideas?
  5. Posting Photos

    I just logged on tonight for the first time, and love the new format. But, is there no favorites anymore? What happens if I click on the save button of one of your photos? And I guess what we had in favorites from the other format is gone? Thanks,
  6. Another Meandering Feathers

    Well, I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but I can't get to the tutorial. It will only let me see the first page. any ideas? Your feathers are beautiful, and I sure would like to learn how to do them.
  7. Elmer & Cheri - Still Praying

    Know you and Elmer are still in our thoughts and prayers. Hope the mouth sores get better quickly. They can be so painful.
  8. NQR - Heidi, how is your mom doing?

    Hey Heidi, I haven't been on the forum much lately, with work and quilting, but I try to read it as often as I can. I just wanted to let you know I feel for you! My DH had open heart surgery 2 years ago. It's a slow healing time. They feel pretty good one day, then crappy the next. I don't know about the shortness of breath, but when they release her for cardiac rehab, make sure she completes the program. It made a world of difference for my DH!! Good luck to you.
  9. Calling all APQS Bloggers...Again!

    Great idea! Leslie Cutright www.quiltedcharm.blogspot.com
  10. Calling all APQS bloggers...

    What a great idea. I too have been lazy on the blogging thing lately, but intend to get back to it. Looks like you put the proverbial boot to us:P:P
  11. I went to Jenny's web site from your blog, and bought the ruler about a month ago. I used it to make her urban deco block, and loved it! I am at work, so I can't post it, but if you want to see it, I have it posted on my blog. She has so many different ways to use it, it's amazing.
  12. Uncle Sam

    I love it! The flags look great.
  13. Scrappy Triple Irish Chain

    I love it! Your feathered circles look great!
  14. Linda, I love this quilt! As always your quilting makes it better than it was. She'll have to love it! I too love the way wool makes the quilting look so much prettier. I am having a hard time talking my customers into using it. But, I'm giving a talk to the local guild here, and batting is my topic! I'm taking samples of all the bats I carry, so they will be able to see for themselves the difference it can make.
  15. Finally finished.............

    Really very pretty! I love 30's fabrics used in traditional quilt patterns. Your handwork even makes it better! Great job.
