    What's not to love?  It's beautiful.  Helen is a stinker!

    jgardog reacted to srichardson in Question about blocking   
    I spread clean towels on my living room floor.  I wash the quilt and then spread it on the towels, measure and reshape and if needed I stick strong pins down through the quilt and into the carpet to hold it in shape.  I have heard of others using a design wall to mount the quilt and rather than wash it just spritz it with water while it is mounted on the wall.   I am not sure how successful that would be with a large quilt as I would think that it may sag.  Do you have garage space where you could cover the floor in plastic and do it that way?  It will be interesting to hear creative ideas from other members.

    jgardog got a reaction from K. Szymaszek in Question about saddle stool   
    I also use my stool for serging with my Babylock Ovation.  I can raise it higher so I am more above the work surface which makes it really nice to see what i am doing.

    jgardog got a reaction from whitepinesquilter in quilting inherited tops?   
    I'm doing a suit sampler from the late 1800s right now.  It's been stored in a trunk for decades.  My Mom was so happy when we got our Freedom that she gave it to me just to see it finished and on display.  Very few of the family have ever seen it or even know it exists.  I just picked a Victorian style backing in black and charcoal and am going to do a modified Fleur-de-lis pattern that would look period correct. Can't wait to finish it.

    jgardog got a reaction from QuiltGuy in New Quilter...With a twist?   
    You're not the only man. Some of us just aren't that visible.  My partner and I just started 2guyzquilting.  We currently have a 2012 Freedom with Bliss, Quilt Glide and an Intelliquilter setup.  It's a lot of fun.  We started by purchasing old or damaged quilt tops at local auctions and then experimented. Superior Threads is hard to beat as that is what the factory uses to set the tensions.  Mark is great to work with.  We purchased ours from him.  There is also a guy by the name of Jim Erickson who was real helpful when we bought our Quiltazoid setup. Welcome. Jim & John

    jgardog reacted to LibbyG in What are your favorite stencils   
    I like the feather stencils because it helps me keep them even.  Heidi got me interested in using the stencils.
    I just bought a butterfly one for a kids quilt.
