  1. Thank you Jim. I have some 80/20 I could double up on. Is that comparable to one layer of high loft?
  2. Thank you Lisa. That's a helpful video.
  3. Hi, I have a customer quilt made of wool, wool blend, corduroy, and gabardine suits or skirts. The customers grandmother made it 40 years ago. I'm going to quilt it from the front so that I can work out the fullness. Is it best to quilt closer, or to quilt farther apart, when working out the fullness? I've done quilts with some fullness, but never as much as this one has. I plan on just stippling it. Most of the work is in prepping it. It was a mess. I plan on using wool batting and a cotton back. **Side note: I washed this 4 times, using color catchers every time. The water rinsed clear. Nonetheless, one of the reds still bled onto a gabardine fabric next to it. I managed to get most of it out. Thanks! Allison

    Charges hand stitch no binding

    I'd charge .30 per linear inch. Hand sewing is time consuming, but looks so nice when completed.
  6. Hi When facing the front of my machine (the panto side is the back) the motor is on the right hand side. I learned to quilt starting at the motor end, so when I'm on the back of the machine doing pantos the motor is on my left and I go from left to right. When I'm on the front of my machine the motor is on my right, so I should then go from right to left. My brain doesn't want to work that way. It wants to work from left to right. Can the motor be placed on either side, or can I work from left to right when I'm on the front?

    We moved our store and thus my studio!

    Love the pressing table. My wheels are spinning now!

    Studio Renovations Complete

    You've got a serious thread collection. I don't know that I'll ever be as organized at that! Thanks for sharing pictures. It's quite a transformation.

    My studio is getting a facelift

    I love before and after pictures, as well as peeking into people's spaces. Can't wait to see it completed!

    Quilting Shed Inspiration

    Sounds like you've got your priorities straight. I'd love to go to Idaho. I have family that transplanted there 30 years ago. They love it. You have a nice, warm, and inviting studio to quilt. I could use a move just to force me to go through all of my stuff.
  13. Hi Everyone! I like this forum for searching for useful information. I find that I have to sort through too much on FB. For me, FB is for looking at pictures and giving people props for work they do. I haven't been active on these forums much. Mostly because I've had a life change that lasted many years. Now that I'm trying to get back to the living I hope to read more and share more. I have noticed that the forums aren't as busy as they used to be. I hope that changes as people tire of FB. I'm not on FB nearly as much as I used to be, however, I'm trying to start a business and it does seem that it's important to keep up with social media in doing so. I do love seeing pictures, so am leaving one here for the next reader. This is my mammoth (donkey) named Boone, modeling a colorful Disney character quilt that I made to go in a Disney themed room.

    Can someone help me remove a post?

    Hi Cathy, It gives me the option to edit it, but not remove it. I tried deleting all fields, but it just returned back to my original post when I tried to exit out of it. Thank you for taking the time to respond. Allison
