  3. So beautiful!! Great quilting choices really bring this quilt to life! Nice job. Lucky couple that will receive this beauty for their wedding present!
  4. So beautiful! I love all the different quilting you did in each block. You brought that beautiful quilt to life! It's no surprise that she won 1st place with it. Great job!
  5. Congratulations on your new Lucey! Lots of fun ahead As far as your stitch regulator is concerned, one thing to check is what is your stitch length dial set at for number of stitches per inch. If it is set too low (below 10), that will make the SR run very sluggishly. I run mine somewhere between 10 - 12, depending on what design and finished look I am going for. Another thing to look at is if you are getting good contact with the little black wheel of both of the SR's. If the contact isn't quite enough, the wheel won't turn fast enough. Look at your manual for your machine to see what I'm trying to explain. If neither of these suggestions are what is causing your issue, then definitely give Dawn a call. Good luck and welcome to the APQS family!
  6. Congratulations Heidi! You are so deserving of this exciting honor. I'm so happy for you!
  7. Beautiful quilt and quilting! And what a great feeling of accomplishment! Now, on to the next one............and we are all looking forward to seeing more pictures!
  8. That quilt is so ugly that I had to wear a blindfold when I quilted it.
  9. Breathtakingly GORGEOUS!!!! Can't wait to hear the results. Keep us posted as soon as you hear anything!
  10. Rita, I am so sorry to hear that you are having so much pain. I don't have any suggestions for doctors but I will gladly keep you in my prayers.
  11. Heidi, it is breathtakingly gorgeous! Your design is so lovely and of course your quilting is over-the-top beautiful! Good luck at the show. You will knock their socks off!
  12. Love it!! You nailed it with your design choices. No one will ever know that you are a "traditional" gal by looking at this quilt. Your quilts are always beautiful!
  13. I agree with all the above comments. My only additional thought is to consider the size of your room where your machine will be. If you have enough room for a Millie, then go for it. It you will be really cramped with the Millie, but will have a more comfortable working space with the Lenni, then go for the Lenni. I absolutely love my Lenni I don't have room for a Millie but have not regretted it for a moment since I bought my Lenni new in 2009.
  14. Robin, I know just what you mean about neat embroidery cd's! I am about 1/2 done with the embroidery on Deck the Halls by Claudia's Creations. I need to get back on that one............in my spare time! I will be watching for your pictures when you get yours quilted!
  15. Another gorgeous creation from the very talented team of Roger and Ardelle!!! I always look forward to any pictures that you post. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful inspiration with all of us!
  16. Cute quilt! Your quilting is perfect for it and really brings it to life. Good job!!
  17. That turned out wonderful!! No wonder your husband is so excited. I agree with all the above comments, great idea on the design of the quilt instead of just t-shirt blocks and sashing. The flames are the perfect quilting on it. I love it!
  18. Connie, the name of the quilt pattern is Sew Vintage by Lunch Box Quilts. There is also a pattern included with this one for a smaller version of a wall hanging. I had to do the full sized version because I just love the vintage sewing machine.
