  • I won at the Quilt Show!!

    This is a quilt with 25 blocks of wild flowers and they were all machine appliqued + lots of free motion quilting. The border was changed to just include 4 smaller flowers and then I added the prairie points. This quilt was entered in the annual Quilt show here in the Country Roads RV Resort in Yuma, Arizona. The competition was stiff and I was so pleased

  • Re: Quilting a small piece.

    Hi Gini: Yes, that is what I am doing - quilting a piece larger than required and then with with left overs I usually make lots of little "change purses" to put inside the larger bag. This bag is called the "Sunday Sachel" and is totally unique. If you are interested I can send you the name of lady who designed it. I ordered it off

  • Re: Quilting a small piece.

    Thank you ladies for your suggestions and I never even thought of using the spray glue. It's only some material that I am quilting to use to make a bag so there isn't any stitch in the ditch type quilting. Next time I make this bag I am going to buy some pre-quilted material! I'll post the picture when I get it made. Thanks again.

  • Quilting a small piece.

    Hello everyone: My question is this: I am quilting a smaller piece (approximately 40 x 40) and the bottom material seems to be shifting on me. I'm only going to do a1.5" quilting for a bag that I will be making. Any suggestions as to how to do it so both side don't buckle on me.

  • Re: What are you up to today! #2

    Well here it is my birthday today (where did the time go?) so I am doing absolutely nothing today! Well, I lied. I am getting ready to go on a bus trip from Yuma, Arizona to the Roads to California Quilt show tomorrow! I can hardly wait so I thought that I would save up all of my energy today for the fun time tomorrow roaming the isles of ideas, patterns

  • Re: My Sewing Room

    Neat, neat, neat - what else can I say!!! I guess my problem is that since we are Snowbirds so when we leave for the sunny south (here in Arizona) I can only pack so much material in the car - or any other goodie that I may have purchased. When I am here in AZ, we live in a park model so our space is really small so I purchased some of the plastic shelves

  • Re: Needle Tension while Stippling

    Thank you Stephanie. I am off to massage therapy this morning and when I get back I will try again and will definately check out Superior Threads videos. You're right in that my bottom material does look like eyelashes sometimes and it seems it's only when I am doing a curve. I'll do the videos first and then some more practice. I will let

  • Needle Tension while Stippling

    Okay all you professional "stipplers out there - I need your help & tips. I just can't seem to get my tensions right all of a sudden when I try to do my stippling. I have tried doing all of the things that are recommended by my sewing machine (Elna Quilter's Dream) and it seems that the upper tension is always very tight or vice versa
