  1. Here is a customer quilt I finished last week. It was really fun! Her Aqua fabric is Fairy Frost by Michael Miller and it is Aqua and pale purple.

  2. Update: After receiving my email, he sent a message back and asked if I could fix it. I explained that it would be $15/hour to take it apart, square it up, and add new borders. I estimated about $100 worth of work, but explained that I will keep meticulous records. He wants me to repair it for him. He also ordered four yards of 120" backing that is being delivered to my house. It is really a pretty quilt. I will post pictures when it is finished (which might be a month or so)

  3. Okay, please do not judge me I have no idea where all this stuff came from. The brown chair goes upstairs. I have been working a little every evening to get this is shape. I am ready to torch the rest of it.

    Marking quilts

    I mainly only use chalk for marking my quilts. If I use colored chalk I use a light color, like blue, green or yellow. So far I have not had any problems. As far as removing the chalk from the quilt, my little red compressor does a sweet job (of course at a lower psi).

  5. For years I've puzzled over sewing machine needles and the vast range of nomenclature to identify them. It started more than ten years ago, with my wife's Babylock serger, and has been a puzzle for me ever since. Little by little I'm beginning to unravel this mystery. Heidi's post of a week or so about Schmetz needles got me going again. I have used Groz-Beckert 134 MR GEBEDUR FFG/SES needles almost exclusively, with an occasional Singer 1955 MR needle thrown in. They've served me well, but I'm always interested in trying new things with the hope I might find something that I like bett

    Pineapple Surprise

    I made a pineapple block without paper piecing or a foundation. I just sewed strips around the center and trimmed across the corners. It did not get all wonky or anything. But I need ideas on a quilting design, please !

  7. You all know that I have really been working hard to build my customer base, including taking some less that perfect tops and doing the best I can with them. A new customer contacted me and wanted quilting done. Nothing fancy- just a groovy board. I was all set to start on it, but I ran into several problems. The top was terribly out of square and had a parachute in the middle. The backing was 4 inches too narrow. There is simply nothing I can do with it. Here is the letter I sent by email today. Dear , I find that I will be unable to quilt your top at this time. As a longarm quilt

  9. Get it with the coupon. I saved 50% so I think it was around $40! I love that it is on wheels and I can move it easily. Fits right under the machine too.

  10. I have been wanting to make this quilt and this one is beautiful. The feathers you did are wonderful. Great job. My husband and I have been on vacation for three weeks and we have one more week before we head home and I can not wait to get back home so I can quilt. Love seeing other quilters work on this forum.

    Marking quilts

    I use the blue washout marker all the time, you just have to wash it, not just dab it. You have to soak it in plain water to get all the ink out effectively.

  12. Ugh! I can't like any posts anymore, because I have "liked" too many. I wish someone could loan me some like Someone posted this on a Facebook page. I thought I would make a great place to attach my ironing board and good storage. You would just leave those pegs out of the top. I have a wide board that fits over my ironing board, and it makes it top heavy. I thought this would be a good option.

  14. I agree with Vickie. I use my Circle Lord stylus with all my boards. I have a few boards I will be selling, if you might be interested in them.

  17. I am about the same height and I agree nothing works that would work for normal people. My mom which is just over 5' says that everything in my studio is giant size.

    George is looking naked as a jaybird. Hope he finds a new home as VA looks a tad nippy this weekend. Cagey
