  1. It's a lovely quilt, and even nicer because of the meaning and love built into it. Great job!
  2. nanbrug: when I have a quilt with short backing, I just baste 4-inch wide strips of muslin to the backing and snap it into the snappers. It only takes a couple minutes to sew the muslin onto the backing
  3. I use Dawn dishwashing liquid (original blue) to get oil and grease out of any fabric.
  4. I bought mine at a road show after trying all the features and deciding what I wanted. I saved something like $4000 because I bought at the road show.
  5. The word that comes to mind is "darling." I don't use that word. But this quilt is darling!!
  6. look below--there's a 2015 Millie for sale for an unbelievably good price!
  7. I went to the International Quilt Show (Quilts Inc) in Rosemont Illinois this year. I hadn't been in years. I was so very happy with the show this year, though. It's always got a good variety of traditional quilts, and art quilts--hand quilting to long arm quilting. And there were plenty of vendors (though no APQS this year). This year the main display was filled with art quilts of every description. Loved it!!! And the SAQA folks had a tremendous show as part of this too. All in all, I was impressed. I took one class, the cost of which included my admission for the day. One day was enough, but only because I was so inspired I wanted to get home and create!
  8. Before I even ordered my Millie, I bought a set of Red Snappers. They are still sitting in the bag, leaning up against the corner of the room. I need to hire someone to "install" them for me, and maybe I'd use them. I don't mind pinning, but then I've only been doing this for six months. I might get sick of pins eventually.
