New Home My Excel 15S lost manual by Kelley Greene
Hi folks, after 25 years the manual disappeared this week and we cannot find it anywhere. I about tore the place apart last night. It apparently sprouted legs and ran off. Looking online I found places that advertised the manual but when you get to the site they don't have it. This is so...

"sea silk", aka byssus from Sardinia by Jack Campin[_2_]
I doubt this stuff is ever going to feature in a quilt, but it's the most remarkable story about a textile craft I've read in a long time: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-33691781 I like the way it is not a commodity. A lot us treat our quilts the...

Those Flying Geese by [email protected]
Hello All, I did some testing on making flying geese. I first used 3 7/8th and found the line did not match on the geese wing piece's so you do have to use 2 1/2, 3 1/2 and etc. I also tried different background fabrics and found that Kona fabric was the best and you can buy it at JoAnn's...

Anniversary by Nann[_2_]
Twenty years ago yesterday -- August 2, 1995: my first post to RCTQ. I lived in Fargo then. The public television station offered inexpensive internet (email) access -- two hours a day. The service included a range of UseNet Newsgroups, among them RCTQ. I was a novice at both quilting and the...

Bear Mountain Quilt by [email protected]
Am I the only one that has these bad days where everything you do is wrong? I got my two different blocks done and the blocks that I did the applique on gave me the beginning of my problems. The applique made them shrink so when I put the two blocks together I am short by say 2/8 inch. Have you...

NuStyle quilting machine by [email protected]
My wife has a chance to buy a used Nustyle model 228 quilting machine, about 10 years old. The price is good, but I'm wondering if anyone has any good, or bad opinions on it. She is a home user, and is doing this for a hobby. We do not need a production machine. Thank you. Ed

Ohio Star and Snails Trail Done by [email protected]
The Ohio Star quilt turned out really good and fast since it had 15 inch blocks. Then I started Snails Trail or a version of it. It has been called Galaxy and Andromedia too so don't really know the original version. It is a very colorful quilt, just lots of bright colors. Wish I could take a...

The Ohio Star Quilt by [email protected]
I finished my Paisley Churn Dash quilt and had a problem when putting it together. The blue I had made the Churn Dash blocks did not go at all with the Paisley material so I remade those blocks using gold mottled and green. So then brought more material for the blue Churn Dash blocks, so got it...

Quick and Easy? by pat on the green
This is the first 'thread' I have started since the changeover. I am envisaging a scenario (the exact circumstances don't matter at all), when I would dearly love to make small bed quilts for two girls (7 and 4) and a cot quilt for the new baby brother. However, if I do embark on this project, I...

"Okay, so I'm going to throw something out there and see what happens. When I posted Tigg's HUG request to the original NG, it was like going home and visiting with old friends again. I've gone back to the original NG and I'm doing both now. Come home folks, come home. I hate reading through...
