  1. I just used push pins to hang a white king size flannel sheet to the wall....works beautifully....
  2. Sylvia - Prachtig!!! (I am Dutch too....my parents grew up in Holland and my brothers and sisters born there....I visit every once in awhile.....last time was in 2005....family in Vianen mostly) Good for you for being so daring with your new machine. You did a beautiful job! Keep showing us pictures. Annette
  3. I also posted this on Chit Chat and got some nice responses. See the quilts that Sue made (pictures). Just gorgeous.
  4. Kathleen - this is a good idea.....thank you! Annette
  5. Sue- what do you mean by the diagonal line method? I would probably use thangles or the paper triangles. I like your idea and the fabrics we are using are Kaffe Fasset....what a coincidence. I think 1/2 square triangles can look sort of like "flags"....which seems sort of beachy to me....I am really stretching here;)
  6. Hi all. I have just been commissioned to make 4 twin size quilts for a beach house. They will go on bunk beds in a girls bedroom and will be heavily used. They are to be pink and green primarily and the quilting panto that is to be used is a allover shells/waves/beachy pattern (can't think of name off the top of my head). The fabrics will be muted/faded. I am stumped as to a quilt pattern (or two) to use. I want to make them simple so the quiltING shows up. Anybody have any suggestions? Thanks so much!

Half square triangles (is that too boring) a lasagna quilt??? Thanks for any help!!
  8. Patty- Exactly right.....sewing room already is down there but separate from kids area....its about 14 x 9 ft........I don't think its big enough, is it?
  9. Hi Everyone. I am new to this. Think I am going to buy a Millenium very soon!! I don't seem to be able to figure out what the absolute minimum size room I need is? I want to put it in my sewing room but am afraid its too small. what do you all recommend? I have a very large finished basement with lots of windows which would be great but have to move the kids TV area. thanks for any advice you can give me
