ready to assemble! by Mary
The quilting is finished on my latest quilt, and I am ready to begin assembling it! This is going to be a BIG quilt -- 9 feet by 9 feet -- and has 81 blocks, each with 72 pieces of fabric, all pieced and quilted by hand (stitch-in-the-ditch). No piece in a block is larger than 2" or smaller than...

Kenmore Needles by Bobbie Sews More
A friend asked about needles for her older 1960's Kenmore sewing machine that she got after her sister had passed over. It has been awhile since I had a Kenmore and used the cams. Which needles do you use for the embroidery stitches? Thank you! Barbara in FL

Mom's health by Susan Laity Price
We made the decision this week to put Mom on hospice care. We don't know if she will be with us for weeks or months. She has lived a full 96 years and I am very thankful to have had her in my life all this time. She remains at my home. I will have help with her care at least part of each day. Two...

Dazor lights/magnifiers by Steph
Hello, I read consistently but don't post a lot, dropping in to say hi and ask a question! My Mom is thinking of getting a lighted magnifier. She saw someone using one a quilting show and it looks like it would really help her as she's learning free motion quilting. It's not an...

The thing I hate the most about quilting is ....... by Sunny[_2_]
ripping out zig-zag or blanket stitches made by my sewing machine in the course of applique. Now, what's your favorite task to hate? Sunny Yes, miles and miles of it.

A very special gadget by Polly Esther[_5_]
I don't think our Gadget Queen has seen this one and it is pretty close to 'on topic'. Babies need lots of receiving blankets and the ones with a crocheted or blanket-stitched edge are so special. There's a rotary blade that makes holes along the edge of a square of nice flannel that are...

Free quilting programs to watch online by Leslie & The Furbabies in MO.
Now that yard work and leaf clean-up is pretty much over for most of us it's time to get inspired to quilt away the winter blues. I've been researching free quilting programs to watch online and found a new resource at www.quilterstv.com. They are just getting started and I have great hopes for...

Howdy! Wasn't that a hoot? And "where are they, now?" It was a good project (doubled), w/ good intentions, and, finally, good results. Cheers! R/Sandy

Large unquilted areas by shorti
I am presently designing a quilt and have a problem, and since my mother has passed away recently, I need to ask someone else for help. The quilt will have two areas that would look best if they had no visible quilting. I know that large areas without quilting will have tearing and bunching of the...

Home from US and Houston... by Bronnie[_2_]
As you may have read in Sandy's report on Houston, she and I met up for a quick lunch. Unfortunately I was really sick for the most of the days in Houston with a flu type bug DH and I picked up in New Orleans the previous week. All those festival crowds. That city really rocks at Halloween g. ...

backing fabric? by Janner
OK, probably a daft question, but what is the difference between "normal" quilting fabric and backing fabric? I know that the width is larger, so why can't it be used on the top? Janner France

batting suggestions? by Leslie & The Furbabies in MO.
When I made my mom's chemo quilt I wanted super soft, so I used Minkee for the backing. That stuff is amazing... glorious! It's fairly heavy/thick, so maybe flannel would be good used as a batting layer just to stabilize the quilt a bit??? Who are the parents of this mystery baby? Can we...

that message board by Ms P[_2_]
I'm sure some of you know which one I'm talking about. I'm beginning to feel like I'm being followed around by the mods and picked at. Today I got an "infraction" for my signature lines. I had a post removed because I called a quilt somebody asked me to repair a "cheap Chinese import." (I'll...

Ping Steven: bad weather by Polly Esther[_5_]
We get anxious about hurricanes around here - and our weather guys are upset about Alaska having a 'snow' (?) hurricane with winds up to 100 mph. Please let us know that you are not in harm's way and have prepared for loss of power and are staying safe. Polly
