  • Re: Did you work on a quilt today #10

    First I measure across the quilt and cut my fabric to the exact measurement that I need. I don't cut a strip and then snip off the extras. I don't know if you cut your borders WOF or LOF but I usually cut my last border length of fabric so it doesn't stretch and get ruffly. If I can't cut lengthwise,because I don't have the fabric

  • Re: HELP needed for a FAST signature quilt pattern

    Here is the pattern I used. I can remember if I made the block 4 or 6 inches but the first one on this site is the one I made. Then I arranged them in the pattern you see in the quilt. Good luck, https://ivoryspring.wordpress.com/2010/06/16/personalization-ideas-for-signature-blocks/

    Hi Lmyer, I'd be glad to share the pattern but you'll have to give me a couple days to research it. The finished quilt is in my gallery. It's the yellow and blue signature quilt. I'll get back to you very soon. Hope you have lots of time to make the quilt. Mimi

  • Re: Vertical Fabric for the border.... A question

    Roxana, I usually miter my striped borders. Jinny Beyer has a great tutorial if you've never done it before. Which ever you decide will be fine but if you're not going to miter, I'd do the sides and then the top and bottom.

    Oops it was the 6600 that had the plates and the built in walking foot....sorry...I had a 6500, then a 6600, then a 7700. I get confused. I'll blame it on the fact that I have senior moments. lol Any of the above would be great machines to have.

    Lpve, love, loved mine and wish I had never traded up to the 7700. I guess the extra 2 inches of throat space was worth it for quilting but I can't say enough about the sturdiness of the 6500. The only problem was switching out the two feed dog plates, one for zigzag and one for straight stitching. I almost always used the straight stitch one to

    [quote user="Judy T-Bellingham"]I'm trying to decide which I like best.[/quote] I'm very taken with version 2 Judy just because of the balance of all the blocks although I do think red rather than the green would be more vibrant. Using more blocks seems like an exciting idea. I know what ever you decide it will be a true work of art

    Barbara, I like your step 4 and 5. Helps me visualize what mine will look like. I might redesign this step 5. I'm thinking of combining Mrs. Patmore with Daisy's blocks. I like the red focus squares in Mrs. Patmore and the larger HST's in Daisy's. What do you think everyone?

    I really like Daisy's blocks. Mrs. Patmore is just a little too plain for my tastes. Wonder what she is cooking up for me?...lol
