  1. Heh, I am finding a lot of other quilters that are saying this also. Thanks~!
  2. I have been quilting since 2008 and have always been afraid of making scrappy quilts. For me, they are to busy, too many fighting patterns, just too much chaos. I decided to tackle my fear of all this and make a small quilt from my scraps. I used an Arkansas Crossroads block and am really pleased with my "controlled" scrappy quilt. Details on my blog: http://bunkhousequilts.blogspot.com/2018/02/im-not-afraid-of-scrappy-quilts.html
  3. I have quilted several quilts for Roberta. She is an awesome lady, sews perfect seams, makes awesome quilt tops and is very deserving as the winner of this new machine. I used to live in Idaho and she went to school with my sister. I can certainly share with you that she will make good use of this machine! I am very happy for her.
  4. So perfect! I love the colors and the quilting is amazing!
  5. I did several Christmas stockings all at once. You can see I used different squares of batting....only because I had some scraps, otherwise, I would have put a whole length of batting.
  6. Thanks, I really had fun quilting this. I appreciate all your kind comments.
  7. I just took this little orphan block quilt off the frame and bound it. I was given several bags of stash and blocks from a lady that passed away several years ago. Her daughter is an acquaintance of mine and recently her husband was killed in an boating accident. I made this for her from the last of her Mom's orphan blocks. More of the story and photos on my blog. http://bunkhousequilts.blogspot.com/2017/07/clothesline-quilt-is-done.html
  8. I once quilted a denim top onto a backing of Cordura. Breezed right through with an 18 needle and Superior's So Fine #40 thread. http://bunkhousequilts.blogspot.com/search?q=tent
  9. I posted a tutorial a few years ago. I always stitch to the back first and then topstitch to the front....have done hundreds of quilts like this with my DSM. Its quick, neat and easy. I always use a 2.5 inch binding. http://bunkhousequilts.blogspot.com/2012/03/machine-binding-tutorial.html
  10. I use a 1/4 inch seam and press everything open-- really really well. I have never raised my hopping foot....for any kind of quilt. However, I have done a few customer quilts that I had to watch very carefully to make sure I avoided intersections. People often think that since it's a denim quilt, it doesn't matter how you piece it.
  11. When I make them they are usually 60 x 80...unless they are for a child. I made camping quilts for the grandkids and they were about 45 x 60. The tent quilt was 90 x 120 which was the largest denim quilt I have ever done.
