  1. I love string quilts, too. I gave my scrap box of strips to another quilter because it was driving me nuts! She has made quite a number of quilts. Very fun!
  2. I am sorry for the loss of your dear friend as well. Hugs and prayers for you and her family.
  3. Check out this video by Linda V Taylor https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=a-MdFDuTIws She shows quilting alot of fullness on an antique double wedding ring. Episode 39 quilting out fullness.
  4. What a wonderful space! I love it and congratulations on your Idaho move. Idaho is a wonderful state; Lord willing; I would like to retire there!
  5. Maribeth, Welcome. We have had the topic of which computer system is best on this forum a number of times. Try doing a search and I bet you come up with loads of information.
  6. Yes, Thinsulate is an insulation you could purchase for DIY or it is used in a lot of ready to wear and shoes/boots. You can purchase it online; just google it.
  7. Great Job!!! It's adorable and I love how you quilted it.
  8. I love the Micro Quilter thread by Superior for ditching; it is almost invisible and the basic colors are all you need. I have been told the Titanium needles can cause problems in the APQS machines because titanium is a harder metal than the parts in the bobbin area are made of. If you break a needle and a piece of it gets caught it can score the metal and then catch thread. I used the titanium needles for a while but then reverted back to the regular Gross Beckert needles. I bet if you do a search on this forum for the titanium needles you will find more information.
  9. It looks great. Try taking photos of your fabrics lined up and then change the photo to black and white. It will show you how fabrics will blend or contrast. An old tool called a Ruby Beholder works the same. Its a deep red piece of plastic to look through; they were used alot when the watercolor quilts books came out in the 90's.The pics also help find stray blocks that might be turned wrong or in the case of a sampler, too many like colors together.
  10. It is beautiful, great job piecing and quilting.
  11. I have an entire roll of QD Wool and haven't experienced this problem; I do wash my quilts in washer and toss them in the dryer, but do not dry them fully. I use a mixture of fabrics; but none of mine were totally of the darker, rich colors like yours. I am so sorry you experienced this; and I appreciate you sharing. I will certainly do some testing on my scraps of batting to avoid this on a quilt. I would think QD would put some sort of warning somewhere in all their information about battings.
