  1. I looked at the new foot at a show this week. I think it would really help and I think I will order one.
  2. Then we all need a copy of the technique. Please post it here.
  3. At one time I saw a posting for removing these lines and I think it included soaking it in buttermilk. I can't remember what else but maybe someone else will remember the solution and post it.
  4. I won't hold my breath. I am probably the most unlucky person around.
  5. I use several of those plastic 3 drawer storage containers from Walmart. I store thread and fabric in them.
  6. I wish I had seen this earlier. I finished mine (started it 2 years ago) and couldn't decide how to quilt it. I finally just put a panto on it and got it finished. I made mine king size. Yours looks great.
  7. Kath, I don't sequence all of the quilt. I do one row at a time and clip off the edges as I go. I just keep moving down the rows one at a time. So when IQ asks choose the row you want to quilt, I pick the next row. I hope I am making sense to you. I know we all do things differently. You might have a different update loaded too. I went back to an older one because I was having some problems with an update so it could be different now. (I haven't done the latest one either).
  8. After you advance and find the point of the last row you quilted, you hit sew quilt. The row you just finished will be highlighted. You need to touch undo or it will go to the row you just finished. After you hit undo, select the next row and it will stitch out the row 4. At least I think this is what you are asking. You are selecting the rows one at a time, correct?
  9. If you have an embroidery machine, Hatched in Africa has some doll outfits that you can do in the hoop. I made the swim suit and have some other patterns to stitch out.
  10. Oh, I can relate. I have 6 from the same lady that are ALL like that. One has only 3 final borders. When I called her twice and tried to get her to fix it, she said it was her design and just quilt it as is. Really???????? Seams are from 1/8 inch to 3/4 inch.
  11. I am going with something swirly then. Thanks for the suggestions.
  12. Any quilting ideas for a homespun quilt made of primitive looking flannel?
  13. I am selling my 2007 milli to upgrade to the new machine. I bought this machine in Nov of 2007. It comes with a 14 foot table, edgerider wheels, turbo winder, and fabric advance. Price is $11,500 and I am located in Southern IL. SOLD
  14. I like the look of your site. The word "the" is spelled incorrectly in question 1 of the faq section if you want to correct it.
  15. Has anyone used this panto? I am looking for an digital iris panto that isn't too dense. I can't really tell about this one and when I click on the picture to enlarge it on her site it doesn't work. I am open to any ideas for others but I need to get started today.
  16. I have one that would make this look like a piece of cake. It has sashing of STRETCH fabric so you can imagine the problems. I am thinking I will call her and say I can't quilt this out. The blocks will stand an inch off the ironing board. It also has piecing open. How in the world do they do this?
  17. A friend of mine yelled at me recently for having a pin in my mouth (same kind yellow flower pin). I told her I do it all the time. Her husband had been helping her with a project at school (she is a retired teacher) one time and swallowed the pin. She spent the rest of the day at the hospital with him. Needless to say his help really didn't help. LOL So, I guess it could happen but I am still guiltly of doing it.
  18. Cute, cute, cute and the quilting looks great too.
  19. i wish I could have found a deal like this when I was looking for a machine.
  20. I sent you a private message on how I do it. I hope it helps.
  21. I have been keeping up with your journey throughout this trial. You have my deepest sympathy. I am so sorry for your loss and I hope God will see you through.
