  1. I am making a tshirt quilt for a friend's daughter. The quilt will need to be washed in a front loader washing machine. Has anyone washed a quilt using Pellon Legacy Natural Blend 80/20 batting? Is there another batting you would recommend? I will be quilting it on my DSM. She would like the quilt to be very soft so I plan to quilt no closer together that 3 inches. I really appreciate your input.


  2. I have sewn many clothes for my granddaughters' AG dolls with the McCalls M6137, M5554, M6370. Also with Butterick 3875 and see&sew B5414. I use newborn onsies to make tshirts by cutting right above the leg opening and serging a new hem. Then I can embroider matching tshirts using a smaller design on the onsie. Also you can google how to make headbands. You are going to have so much fun.

  3. Asking $200. Purchased the Viking Scandinavia 200 in 2006 for $600. Since then, I have purchased a Bernina. The machine is in excellent condition. I don't think that it even has 80 hours worth of sewing time on it. Also has the quilting walking foot with it. Here is a link for further info on the machine:


    If interested, send me a U2U message. Thanks.

  4. My daughter got married last Saturday. I made her a DWR quilt top from fabric she and her husband collected over the past year during travels. He is from Germany. At showers and at the wedding, guests signed the backing fabric with the Micron 01 Pigma Archival Pen which I purchased at JoAnn's. Now I am wondering how to quilt the back. Use invisible thread in the bobbin? Don't want the thread to cover the signatures and the messages.

  5. Have you ever quilted a quilt on a long arm that had a double knit backing? Friend has finished a quilt for an older friend that is going into a nursing home. The quilt means a lot to the lady going into the nursing home. It is supposed to be a wall hanging so I assume the quilt is not very large.
