  1. now that is the bees knees right there! wonderful.
  2. I had to move my clamp and to do so had to take the head off the table and turn it over. that's the only way to get to those screws......
  3. Well.... that depends. Does she want you to trim it? I had someone do one for me when I was between machines and I wish I had told her not to trim. She cut it too close for my liking. I return the quilt to the customer untrimmed all around. It's their fabric and batting......
  4. Awesome! I've done one, a small one, and loved the process.
  5. I just watched some videos on this with hankies. They make lovely pillows. Beautiful job!
  6. We wondered about my range of motion too but I couldn't move my neck before so this has got to be better! I am officially part cyborg.
  7. I won't be on my Millie for the next 9mnths at least. I had most of my neck fused. won't be doing much of anything for a while. Not allowed to pick up more than a coffee cup. I had the surgery on 1 June and have been on the recliner ever since. Have been wearing a neck brace from the beginning, 24/7. It's killing me having to do nothing! The healing is going well. Keep those quilt pictures coming, it's my only fix!
  8. It's called Time Warp. I made it bigger by adding 2 more yellows so I also needed more background fabric.
  9. Thanx so much. Learning curve....had a freak out after the first row because I was too fast on the buttons and didn't mark center. Now to work on the details of quilt path and take some risks.
  10. I've made this but added 2 more colors, which is 4 more rows all around....so it's big! I'm looking for suggestions for finding a 1 piece large backing. I'm having a problem finding something over 108"....I need at least 112" I think. aaaaannnnnddddd, quilting ideas are always welcome! mine is black and gray(backgrnd). I'm mulling with the black quilted separately from the gray, and the gray background creating something else behind the black. should be easy as it's 4 of the same quadrants. stock pic attached. each strip is 3". I have no problem doing freehand/rulers. I think I prefer it because it seems faster to me, I am so impatient for that end result. I have quilt path, just haven't cracked it, really.
  11. okay! pulled my head out and found the button! doh!
  12. Opened the back, no such button. not sure if I can reset the carriage at this point.....
  13. I'm fairly certain I know where this is on my millie. but there is nothing inside the hole to reset, no button, I meet with no resistance......is it possible it's shifted somehow? should I remove the cover and take a look?
  14. From my friends mom. She likes doing embroidery but not so much putting quilts together. Her friends put it together for her. Love the scrappy look. Clear thread in the blocks and variegated elsewhere. Posting from my phone so they're probably sideways.
  15. Well....I had to take off the back cover. Remove a small computer board on the lower part to expose what looks like a fly wheel. A round ring with a magnet...had to realign the magnet at the 3 o'clock mark...the ring was completely loose which explained the needle not knowing where up and down was. Chalk that up to it just loosening over time. Sorry, I can't post the document now as I don't have it on my phone.
  16. Posting from my phone so the pics will probably be turned. Took me a few days to decide on the border. Didn't want any more curves after all those feathers. SID around the stars and half squares.
  17. Wanted to let ya'll know...this was an adjustment to the mag collar. Piece of cake!
