Twelve foot, actually, rather than ten!

in the yard.
The weather here hopping around from spring back to winter so I take
advantage
of the 'spring' days.
I don't have a 10 foot pole but I agree with the Bernina is vastly
superior to Janome.
That should bring Leslie out. LOL, ducking and running.

Let's see.
Bernina is vastly superior to Janome.
Anybody that machine quilts is not really quilting.
'Real' men do not quilt.
Nobody with a brain would use a steam iron when piecing.
Anybody who doesn't pre-wash is careless and stupid.
Putting in a new needle after only 6 months is wasteful.
The only people who use prints instead of solids are hiding missed
points.
Quilts should not be used/abused. They deserve 'put away and save'
status.
Hooo BOy! that was fun.
Anyone? Polly

When I grow up I want to be Polly.

Until then, I'm mostly limiting online time lately. Lots of things
going on that are (sorry about this) more interesting and urgent than
surfing. You see, if I just drop in here for a few minutes, I end up
sucked into the yawning maw of the Net for hours. I'm sort of an
addict, have no self-control, all that stuff.

Otherwise, I'm missing my friends at RCTQ and needing a good big dose
of quilt talk time. Maybe we should all square off around Polly's list
and start making people laugh.

For my part: Bernina? Janome? Well let me tell you, my Montgomery
Ward 7-Jewel ZigZag sewing machine (circa 1950ish), portable, weighing
in at 52 pounds, is the best. So there. hehehehehehehehehehehe

Love ya all,
Sunny

I thought of some more.
There are quilt police.
If you violate the rules, your quilt is no good.
All seams must always be pressed to the side and they have to be ".
'Art' quilts are superior to traditional ones even if they are downright
ugly.
Hiding your best scissors from the family is selfish.
Sleazy thin fabric from the $1 bin is good enough. Quilting is 'just' a
hobby.
You must be born with the quilting gene; study and practice will not
help.
Maybe everybody is in the drunk tank in New Orleans; this is
Mardi Gras weekend.
Polly ... with no plans to grow up.

I certainly have no skill at shaking the missing into a fight. You don't
suppose they're quilting, do you? Polly

How about:

Nobody should ever use anything other than 100% cotton in anything, including batting backing and thread.
Anything to protect the under finger is cheating.
(In addition the the above) A minced finger is a badge of pride
Bias binding is the only way to edge a quilt
Non-mitred corners are for amateurs
Metric measures are not pc
Every last pot-holder must be labeled with the DNA of the maker
Only needles made in England are good enough
Using a pattern (Or, God forbid!) a KIT is treachery to the brood

Well, I am checking in daily, not a lot to say.
However, my favorite machine did not die completely as I had thought.
VVVBG (A capacitor blew up in the transformer, which blew a fuse.
Easily replaceable parts, fortunately.)
It is home and ready to go. And it is a Viking. Neither a Janome nor a
Bernina.
I have been busy sewing, contemplating and trying to breathe.

Have fun,
Pati, in Phx

Nel, you are good! Really, really good. I particularly like the one about
using a kit. I used to wonder (quite uppity, too) why anyone would do that.
I finally realized that there are lots of good reasons and they are none of
my business. So there. Polly

Hehehehe...

I have Husqvarna Vikings, Berninas, Elnas, Frister & Rossmans, Singers,
a Toyota, a Brother, a Jones, and a Big Ole New Home... The New Home is
a mechanical wonder, heavy as a lead coffin, but sleek as butter. The
only modern Janome machines I have tried have been plasticky and flimsy
and/or have danced off the table into my lap. Not buying one of THOSE,
taverymuch!

I do love my older New Home, though not as much as the old Berninas,
Elnas, Singers, et al.

I sometimes wash my fabrics before sewing, and sometimes not. depends...

And I haven't posted much recently because I'm changing my way of
business and also trying to stock my Folksy and Etsy shops, with my
partner in sewing...


I have been busy sewing, contemplating and trying to breathe.


Breathing is good. Keep at it!

PS: for Polly: Growing up is for kids. I gave up years ago!

I can think of a million reasons for using a kit.

I can understand using a pattern for something wild and wooly, or
something pictorial when that is not in your skill set.

I don't get insisting on a bought pattern for dead common ancient
geometric patterns. You have a ruler, you know your multiplication
tables, you even have or can get a bit of graph paper. One of the old
aunties used to look askance at me for using that much. Her drafting
tools ran to a piece of lathe, a dinner plate, a teacup, and a stack of
old newspapers for drawing on. So I suppose I ought to be more
sympathetic to folk who insist on boughten patterns for everything all
the time, but it strikes me as dreadful wasteful.

Pet peeve alert! Those little templates on keychains that you use for
drawing out repeat patterns for the quilting. They are a great idea,
especially the curves, but I would love them better if they actually had
measurements on them so it was a bit less by guess and by golly when
using them. I have a set of the ones for feathers, but half the time I
still use a teacup because I _know_ how big that is without fussing.
