    Disappearing Stitches

    It's the nature of the beast, SewingDiva. Puffy batting will hide stitches. Plush fabrics like flannels will hide stitches. Using a thin thread like 50 wt will hide stitches. If you want the stitching to show on flannel, use a heavier weight and a contrasting color---and lengthen your stitch length a bit. Don't mess with the tension. Good luck!

    Quilts for my Sisters

    I finished two quilts at the end of May so I could take them to 2 of my sisters in central Canada while visiting this summer on our cross country trip to visit Newfoundland for the first time. What a great trip we had! The pattern is Angela Walter’s “Coral”, available free on her website. Both quilts are the same, except the first one I used a slightly contrasting thread (to the background) because I thought it blended a bit better with the print segments and the second quilt I used a matching thread. In the end, I thought the second one came out better as I had figured out the quilting execution by the time I got there! I’ve only attached the front and back pictures of one quilt here.

    Disappearing Stitches

    Thank you for your comments. The more I use the machine the more relaxed I get. This was a pantograph called West Wind from My Creative Stitches. Your comments help build my confidence. I appreciate that.

    Jack's Story Town

    My customer makes these quilts for her grandchildren. You may remember LUKE , ETHANBURG and MAGGIE TOWN. Jack loves books so she's cut out characters from material. So Fine on top, Bottom Line in the bobbin. Hobbs 80/20.

    Memory Lane

    Memory Lane is a pattern by Deborah Borsos and Leslee Price. It was pieced for a grandaughter. She had 60 yoyos so she wanted a light custom. I did "funky hearts" because perfect ones were too difficult. So Fine on top and Bottom Line in the bobbin. Hobbs 80/20.

    Weekend with my daugh

    My daughter and I had a great time this weekend finishing up a quilt she started 7 years ago. This was one of her first quilt tops she made. She is planning on giving it to a friend who will be starting dialysis in the next couple of weeks. I completed all the feathers earlier in the week and she did the rest of the quilting. She has only done a couple of quilts before on my Freddie. She did an awesome job! If you notice one corner... I forgot to do a feather... noticed this as we were taking pictures of the quilt. I said I would reload it and add it but she insisted we consider it a ‘design feature’. She will add her quilt label to this area so it worked out just fine

    A Lion-size Dream

    Posting here for those not part of the facebook group. Not a really great picture - but it's finally done and gifted to my son for his move-in at school next month.Applique center pattern "Majesty" by Gina Reddin Designs, borders are created with 'curved braid' by Victoria Findlay Wolfe. Quilted on my Lenni with SoFine and Aurifil threads, Quilters Dream Wool Batting. All hand-guided - freehand faux McTavishing and some rulers. I've been pantograph quilting for almost 5 years and only started FMQ this year.This project stretched me in a LOT of ways - especially as it was for my youngest child as he leaves (1,000+miles) for college!

    Disappearing Stitches

    No it wasn't pre -washed. It wasn't very well constructed with seams not matching and a pieced backing resulting in a lot of fullness next to the seam. But it turned out great! At least I think it did. As it sewed it really drew in the fullness from the topper and backing. Once it is washed it will take up the small amount of fullness left in between some of the rows of stitching. Tell me what you think. Please be honest. It doesn't help me if you're not. I'm a big girl and prefer honesty to just making me feel good. I want to improve this craft and can't do that if people aren't honest with me. Thank you for your help.

    I am looking for a new home for my 2017 Innova 22" with Lightning Stitch. It's on a 12' Pro-Frame with canvas leaders. I just purchased this machine brand new in June, and have only done 9 quilts on it, so the stitch count is very, very low. It's an absolutely fantastic machine- my dream machine!- and if life circumstances had not taken an unexpected turn, I would not be getting rid of it. As mentioned, it has Lightning Stitch, the upgraded Spectre LED light, and horizontal and vertical channel lock. It includes: - Bobbin winder - M size bobbins - Towa tension gauge - Machine Oil - Manual - Red Snappers - Extended base for ruler work Additionally, because I am closing down my business, I am including: - Two bolts of Quilter's Dream batting (White Cotton Select and Dream Poly blend) - Tons of cones of threads - Needles - Scissors - Ruler for ruler work - Etc. I'm asking $15,000 OBO, and I'm in Springfield, Ohio. Purchaser is responsible for pick-up, and we'd be happy to help you load everything. If you're interested or have any questions, shoot me an email at: thequiltingchamp@gmail.com.

    I had seen this book awhile ago and just thought oh... but then I happened to catch Natalia Bonner on a Sewing with Nancy show and they had this quilt on the show. I loved it. Year and 1/2 later ) maybe 2) I finally completed it. I quilted same as she had done. Always been afraid of woodgrain, but no longer. Put a bluish batik on the back. Pretty stinking happy. PS going to bind in same yellow.

    2014 Lucey with 12 ft Blissed Table

    Hi. Can you please give a reason why on this ad you say that you're not particularly interested in longarm quilting and would prefer to do woodworking, as well, you are moving south (paraphrasing) while on an Innova 22 ad on this forum you say that you want to sell your Lucey so you can buy an Innova 22. These comments contradict each other. Are you unhappy with the performance of the Lucey? Why do you want an Innova 22 when you say you don't really like longarm quilting?

    What is taxable??

    Laws vary from state to state, so Janette gives great advice. I charge state sales tax for everything, including labor.
