Tin Lizzie 18 by Trixie
Does anyone have experience (good or bad) with a Tin Lizzie 18? I have a Handi-Quilter frame with a Juki 98 and am considering trading up. Any reviews will be greatly appreciated. Trixie

More about the wonderclips by Brian Christiansen
I finished the pants, sort of. I decided to go with the elastic in the pants, but I cannot actually do that until I buy the elastic, but I did sew the crotch seam and make a casing for the elastic. I looked at the seams, and what I originally did was the suggestion made that I make it into a...

Hot Pads by [email protected]
Hello All, Well after making 2 more butterfly quilt tops, each being smaller than the previous one because I made a mistake while cutting them out. Instead of cutting out 5 1/2 inch squares, I instead cut some 5 inch squares and it was only after I had cut 15 sets of these discovered my...

The quilt I am repairing by Brian Christiansen
I have talked several times about a quilt I am repairing, and just thought I would say some stuff about the progress of it. It is kinda going slowly, but that is because I sew on a replacement square, then let it sit for a while (sometimes a few days, sometimes as much as a few weeks), but I...

Different Butterfly Quilt by [email protected]
This quilt is not the batik material that I used before. This time I just used 2-5 1/2 inch print squares for front wings, then another 2-5 1/2 inch solid/or mini print squares of contrasting material for back wings and then drew a line crosswise on each 2 1/2 inch white Kona material squares(need...

Butterfly Batik Quilt by [email protected]
Hello Barbara, Thank you for your comments about making quilts. Is this the only quilt or fabric newsgroup that you know of?? It just seem like some have left our newsgroup. Just hope Brian never leaves because I depend on his help so much. Sandy$

Kindred Pinwheel by [email protected]
Have a couple of comments to make about this quilt. They should of spent more time developing the pattern as there is too much waste of background material. The way the pinwheels are made, when you sew them together as blocks, some of your points are actually sewn off when you connect the blocks....

This is what I am working on right now. To make one block You start out with 4-5 inch prints, 8-2 1/2 inch white squares and 4-2 1/2 inch squares of yellow or color of your choice for the centers. Take a pencil/ruler and draw a line diagonally on all the 2 1/2 inch squares. Now take a 5 inch...

More wonder clips and more random stuff by Brian Christiansen
I ordered the wonder clips, and Amazon's estimate is that it will arrive between the 19th and the 29th, but other orders from Amazon have gotten to me faster than their estimate. I think my first project when I get them will be to finish the pants I talked about. The inseams are made with...

Wonder Clips and other random stuff by Brian Christiansen
Sometime in the past, I suppose, I started making a pair of gi pants for a martial arts class I was in at the time, which I did not finish (the pants, not the martial arts class). A few days ago, I found the pieces of it, 2 legs that had the inseam sewn on each leg, but the legs had not yet...
