  2. Oh my gosh Heidi!!! HOW DO YOU GET ANYTHING DONE??? The twins are adorable and I can see that "who me?? I didn't do it " look on Landon's face Irresistible just isn't strong enough !! I wish I could hug then right through my screen!! So many YEARS OF HAPPINESS TO COME! ...... I don't need to tell you to ENJOY Now, back to quilting. Since I am new to longarm, and just did my quilt with QD wool,, I too am going to switch to that full time. Thanks for your info. Happy Quilting,
  3. Penny.. Wow, the Piecing / COLOR CHOICES and the Quilting are OUTSTANDING! BOTH of you deserve all the AWARDS! Thank you for posting
  4. Heidi, Absolutely Adorable.. I would hug and kiss them too May I ask , did you use all flannels? I'm new, but have use the Quilters Dream Wool, and I LOVE IT! Thanks for sharing, and I am so happy both twins are doing great! Happy creating!
  5. Thanks Ann and Kathy, That is what I figured I was going to have to do Thanks for the response and I love both projects, there are so many ideas popping thru my brain!! I already had placemats in mind.. oh boy, now I can add big Christmas stockings for the Grandkids!! I want to do so much and seems all the other projects in life (especially summer time) get to take precedence over sewing! I really can't wait to try this.. at least I will be able to play with my new Lucey with smaller projects, just so that I can "play" and not have to wait until I finish a whole big quilt. Happy Quilting and Thank you
  6. Jeanne just posted a Beautiful picture of her Granddaughters with their completed Pillows.. I would love to do small items on my new Lucey as they did... How do I load small items like Pillows, table runners etc on my Lucey frame? I only need a small piece of backing fabric, so this really has me stumped! Thanks for the insight. Happy Quilting
  7. Jeanne, What "Wonderful Memories" PRICELESS!! Thank you for sharing
  8. Connie, Can you please post what you actually ended up using and how you did it? I am so glad that you were able to get the ink out especially on cream color. I was very fortunate a while back too. The Hairspray trick worked for me, so I know the relief your feeling Thank you for the post, everyone is so much help on this site
  9. Hum... Very interesting... Mary Beth, will you please go a step or two further and tell me which Battings you do not want in your house?? I certainly do not want to buy a big roll of something and then find out it isn't a preferred batting. I am new to all of this and have used the Quilters Dream and love it.. I would rather pay more and be happy than buy a roll of grief for less Thank you for your information Have a Wonderful Day!
  10. Congrats... that is the WORST part KNOWING it is so close YET SO FAR AWAY!! I would want to be in the truck and on my way too.. but I must say.. those rail beams are "really heavy"!! let the Delivery guys get them in the house!! I sure wish I had your 28 years of experience.. YOU ARE GOING TO BE AMAZED AT THE FREE GLIDING MOTION OF APQS MACHINES!! please post some of your quilting.. I can't wait to see it When Millie shows up.. make sure to take some time to breathe I am so Happy for you!
  11. Carol, Love the idea and the panto is perfect ! Did you order a custom size? Your stitching looks to be around 2 inches apart I love open quilting designs Thanks for posting, another idea learned !!!!
  12. Madelyn, Beautiful Quilt.. your Granddaughter will cherish it forever Great job
  13. Thanks you guys for this post, I thought my needle in APQS Lucey was suppose to be straight, so I am really anxious to hear more about this 5:30 or 6:30 position of the needle hole. Hope everyone has a Stress Free Day
  14. Absolutely Beautiful Vicki, I am also new to Long Arm and the site, so Thank you Mary Ann for bringing this up again.. There are so many beautiful quilts !! Thanks everyone for sharing your talents.. Piecing and Quilting!!
  15. Heidi, Breath Taking.. Everyone said it all!! Great job!!
  16. I am totally amazed at how you all know "what to quilt".. I will never live long enough to figure out How you know!! Keep up the beautiful work., I love to browse and Wonder
  17. Kathy, Absolutely breathtaking!! I can't imagine ever being able to accomplish such creative work!! Well done for sure! How many years have you been Long arm quilting?
  18. Sewingpup, Oh.. how ironic.. You really hit me with "Grandma's Homemade Bread" How I miss that too! Today would be her 132nd Birthday.. One thing she was definitely right about... You have to be able to "feel it' I still make some of the old fashioned "Kolachy's" and IF you can't feel it.. you can't make them! With today's processed flours.. you will NEVER make Grandma's Bread ever sad
  19. Hello, Is there some kind of a "rule of thumb" about how big your Quilting design should be.. in comparison to the size of your block? On E2E or free motion? I have this D9 top done and was thinking of just a big open flower like you see in that brown background fabric.. but, how big should I design it? I don't like close stitching, I like more of a comforter look, so I try to keep my stitching lines at least 1.5 to 2 inches apart. All suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you
  20. https://quiltsocial.com/2-ways-to-machine-stitch-a-binding-on-a-quilt/ I found this blog this morning and thought I would pass along the link seems like we are all after that perfect SEWN ON BINDING In the comments section, another lady has gone to the 3/8ths inch seam to sew on the binding first, that is what I like best too. Rosemary
  21. Deb, You can do it.. I need to go back and do it the way Connie does, I used to do it that way, and sewing to the back and bringing it around to the front definitely allows you to see that you are overlapping your seam on the back.. your still SID on the back, but overlapping on the front. It does take practice, the biggest problem is what width to cut your strips. I have a problem with that because i'm always adding more thickness with as much batting as I can so my quilts are puffier. Good luck Betsy, Frankenmuth might be a great place, maybe we can introduce Connie to Bronners too That would be a good 1.5 to 2 hrs travel for me. We certainly have to figure out a plan to get together, and checking out Frankenmuth's quilt shop would be an added bonus Rosemary
  22. Carol, when you use the Serpentine stitch for this application, do you set you machine up for a narrow , long, wave look? and do you sew both on and off the edge? I think I tried this before and my edge seemed to have some "what I thought to be" open edges.. Maybe I was set up too wide and too long of a stitch length. Thanks, Rosemary
