  1. It's ok with me if I get sprinkled with gold quilting dust while I sleep and wake up being able to quilt like you. LOL Joan

  2. My batting of choice is Hobbs Heirloom 80/20. It is soft, pliable, easily laundered and just right for our climate. I would use it for daytime cover-ups and bed quilts. I have used the bamboo, it also seems very nice and a good weight, but I do not sell it and don't know how it holds up to laundering. I carry a lot of choices, for customers with varying tastes, and who will be sending their work back to the Mainland. I do not carry Warm & Natural, because I personally consider it to be totally unsuitable for our climate. I do carry Quilters Dream Puff (100% poly), because it is on

  3. Very good advice Sue. But if you DO decide to venture into digitizing your own designs, you absolutely can't go wrong with Art and Stitch. The training and support are second to none! Check out the training videos on the website. That will give you a glimpse into what the software can do. There is also a very comprehensive manual which takes you step by step through all the functions, and as other quilters discover new ways to use the software, addendums are added to the manual. Also, webinars which you can attend online.

  4. So, it's nearing the end of the day, you are getting tired, but are SO close to finishing this quilt that has been on your machine for way too long. "Come on baby. Just a little bit more."

One thing leads to another, and then you've done something really stupid, like trying to stitch with the needle threaded, but no bobbin thread. Then it gets ugly. I get that mess cleaned up, and my first thought is "Well heck. Got that taken care of, let's finish this after all!" Even though you've been telling yourself and your machi

  5. I was very happy with the results of using this variegated Rainbows thread for the quilting on this customer quilt. The baby quilt was a last minute quick project for a baby shower. My daughter also did a really good job on her project. She didn't even want help pressing it. It did take her all night to hand stitch the binding down. I told her that some of my customers pay me to do that for them, but she wanted to make it all herself, except for the quilting part that is. https://www.flickr.com/photos/foreverdesigning/14823593438 https://www.flickr.com/photos/foreverdesigni
