Hi Quilters!

Today at the Cabin : Rain threatening outside. The sky is an overcast gray, there is a slight breeze and yes, I can smell the rain. New chicks have arrived on the farm, we have Rhode Island Reds (for eggs), Turkeys and Ducks, and Cornish Rocks (for meat).

I think baby chicks are my favorite. Exploring with my grandson in the barn the other day and we discovered a 2nd batch of kittens; just minutes old. Seriously, they were still being born. Normally we'd pick them up and cuddle and hold, but it's too early. We'll leave mama alone for a bit.

It's Very Purse-O-Nal Pattern - Brand New!

"It's Very Purse-O-Nal" is an attractive tote that is excellent as an everyday carry-all or as a convenient travel bag. The exterior has two roomy patched pockets and a handy (and easy to apply) zipper pocket on back that's just perfect for your cell phone or glasses. There's lots of room and pockets inside and, thanks to the side ties, you can adjust the top opening from wide to narrow to accommodate your purse-o-nal needs. (13" W x 9.5" H x 5" D)

For Janome 12000 Owners....

I asked Janome why does it take so many steps to locate the 1/4" seam on the Janome 12000?

Basically it is because the 12K is considered a full purpose TOL machine that is built for tailoring, home dec, crafting, embroidering, as well as quilting. So center needle position is considered the most common position.

Since the feed dogs are so much wider now, which makes for great control, the needle needs to be significantly moved to the right in order to use the "O" quarter inch foot. And once again since "piecing" is only one function of the machine, the quarter inch stitch was put into the quilting category as well as in the patchwork section of sewing applications.

And Janome has solved my problem -

If you want to always have the needle ready to go for the quarter inch seam, without having to go through the extra screens, simply follow these steps to create your Favorite Stitch.

1. Set function > Ordinary Sewing > page 6> turn on Favorite Stitch > OK

Now the machine will retain any changes made to the Utility stitches.

2. Select Utility stitch 1 or 4. (I like to use stitch 4 so that I still have straight stitch center needle position)

3. Touch Adjust and move the needle position to 8.3 > OK

Now the default of that stitch is changed to this new setting.

Now whenever you select that stitch it is ready to use for the quarter inch foot.

Quilt Hanging Sleeve by Machine....

1. After the quilt is quilted, this hanging sleeve is put on the back of a quilt entirely by machine.
2. The sleeve should be wide enough so the fold will extend from the top of the quilt to about 1/8" below a border seam on the front of the quilt.
3. Cut a strip this width. Cut the length of the strip approximately 6" less than the width of the quilt.
4. Fold under the short edges 1/4", press and stitch.
5. Fold and press the strip in half lengthwise, wrong sides together.
6. Pin the raw edges of the folded sleeve even with the top edge of the back of the quilt.
7. Stitch the sleeve to the quilt using 1/8" seam. The binding will cover this stitching.
8. Pin the folded edge of the sleeve about 1/8" below a seam on the front of the quilt.
9. Stitch in the ditch from the front of the quilt through the seamline, catching the folded edge on the back.
10. Finish the quilt by adding the binding. Perfect mitered corners are easy following my techniques.

Show and Tell....

Made this quilt for my grandson; he graduated this year.

Finished it right on time, the centre is from a kit, I had to make it bigger as he got a bigger bed.

Only second big quilt I have ever made, I will say it is Kaye Wood that has inspired me,

and I found out if I follow pattern directions it is quite easy. Thank you Kaye
