    Need quilting ideas on arrowhead quilt

    Linda I've never had the opportunity to use the "onion & garlic".....would you recommend marking for continuity in spacing or would you just go for it? Great ideas and recommendations here...thanks. Michelle

    issue with minky backing

    I've had this happen just as you described. Nothing made it better. It was bad with a dark blue minky and I was using a light colored thread for the lighter top....had to switch to a dark blue thread to make it less obvious. Still love minky backs.

    gammill workstation and design center

    Hi Pam I sent you a U2U. I have a Design Center and Workstation for sale. It will only fit a Gammill Classic table. I've never had the time to learn how to use it....and I don't see that I will have the time in the near future. So if you are interested...I can send pictures via email. It takes me too long to figure out how to post pictures on this forum...lol. Thanks MIchelle

    Very nice Elita....do mind sharing how you did your starts/stops?? Did you knot & bury your tails or did you take tiny stitches??

    quilt flange

    I recently did custom on a quilt with flange and the top appeared flat. My quilting near the flange caused the flange to slightly "ruffle". Are there any tips to prevent this?? The last quilt I did with flange didn't have as much dense quilting and I assume that is why it stayed flat. SHouldn't we quilt near the seam to catch the seam allowance of the the flange...to keep it set in place?? Or is that what causes the "ruffling"?

    question about truesharp power sharpener

    For $59...it seems you could buy quite a few blades. A while back I was surprised to find so many rotary blades are for sale on Ebay...reasonably priced too. I bought them and I probably have a life time supply. Much cheapper than $59....does anyone know why or how they sell them so cheap on Ebay...they seem like new. Are they recycled with a "Truesharp"?? LOL
