Happy Dance! by Diana Curtis
Please join me in a happy dance for a finished Meghan's Garden quilt. Who would have thought that for a few years before I joined RCTQ I thought I would never make, let alone finish a quilt again! I found practical tips, and encouragement here, and more ... The picture is in the unfiled photos...

another question by Dr. Quilter

machine quilting curves by Dr. Quilter
question for you experience machine quilters. I bought a new sewing machine, because the tension of my 1968's SINGER was beyond regulation. Got a sewing machine table, but I was still having trouble, so Fer cut the legs so it would be exactly at the same level as the old one. I am still having...

SM throat question by Dr. Quilter
The throat of my new SM (if that is how you call the place through where the feed dogs come up) is quite wide. The foot it came with is wide enough to cover them, but also too wide to sew a 1/4" seam. If I put my narrower feet in to piece with a quilter's seam, will the fabric get eaten? It...

What is going on with Micros**t? by Piglet
It doesn't come from Microsoft; it's a virus sent by folks who, to say the least, don't wish the folks in Redmond well. If Microsoft could, by edict, end viruses, I'm sure they'd be happy to do so. --pig On 10/23/03 11:10 PM, opined:

Rag Quilts with Binding by JoyceG in WA
I've recently been working on some rag quilts, mainly because it's something I can finish in a reasonable amount of time. I've noticed some rag quilts in the LQSs that have traditional binding, and others that have the snipped and frayed edges. I was wondering if using binding on the edges is...

My Happy Dance by Sindir
Well, my first ever quilt is done!!! My binding looks pretty good in the front, but if you turn it over it's pretty uneven. The stitching leaves something to be desired. I machine stitched the front half and then turned it and finished it by hand. I'm sure I'll get better at that as I...
