  • Re: Are you ready for MQ7

    Spudgrandma, thanks for letting me know about your experience. I don't have the money to invest in a new mat so I'll take your advice. To save money I've been using dull rotary cutting blades which is causing bursitis in my neck and shoulders (too much pressure needed to cut through even two layers. I believe new blades will help more than

    I just bought an Olfa rotary cutter. I noticed it says I should only use an Olfa cutting mat. I already have two fiskars mat and an X-acto cutting mat. Have any of you had experience with this? What do you think?

    Thanks everyone. I did quilt it on a home sewing machine (one block at a time) using free motion, stitch in ditch, outline, and some decorative stitches. Leah Day shows the quilt as you go technique on her blog, but Craftsy offers a class Quilting Big Projects on a Small Machine by Ann Petersen. She covers lots of ways to quilt a big quilt on a standard

    I made a smaller quilt. It measure 44 X 56. I used Ann Petersen's method for machine quilting each block before joining them. It worked great. I am making placemats from the remaining 8 blocks. I'll post them when I'm finished. This class has been fun. I've learned to make several new blocks such as drunkard's path, hexagons, and

    [quote user="Kris"] Beautiful block. I enjoy paper piecing as well. Have you joined the paper piecing group? We're working on compass blocks and Harry Potter Project of Doom. [/quote] Kris, No, but Thanks for the suggestion.

    Thanks everyone for your encouragement and kind words. I'm plugging along. Just finished the Friendship Circle Block for October. Although I'm prone to mistakes, I enjoy paper piecing. I have made a 45 X 60 blanket using this method. It is super ugly, but I love it anyway. It is "dog" themed. This is the first block in the craftsy

    Here's another picture of it. [quote user="JAP"] Here's the second block for September (Cleopatra's Puzzle). This one drove me nuts. It skewed to one side and would not square. I made it twice and still I'm not very happy with it. I watched the tutorial at the Missouri star Quilt Company (Drunkard's Path: the easy way)
