  • Re: Home Quilting Machines

    I'm with Penny: If you're going to quilt with your machine, look at the throat size! I have a Bernina 440QE that I love, but the throat size isn't as big as the throat on my Singer 201-2 (year 1940, straight stitch only). Machine preference is so personal, but some things, like arm size, height, etc. are major considerations.

  • Re: Making a cover for my sewing machine

    That machine cover is gorgeous! I made a cover for mine because things fall down from above on it (studio ceiling open to second floor and the cat pukes sometimes). Mine is such a plain jane compared to yours! LOL Well, at least I don't have to worry about cat barf any more... :-)

    You know, Eleanor Burns has an easy applique method of doing a Double Wedding Ring quilt. I believe it was in her "Egg Money Quilts" book, but she may have a separate pattern available as well. She cuts all the pieces from strips using a template, sews them together to make an oversized curved piece, then sews lightweight nonwoven fusible

    Hi, Michelle- I did a little research to find some "official" information about this. Here is what the copyright.gov says: http://www.copyright.gov/circs/circ31.pdf What Is Protected by Copyright Copyright protection extends to a description, explanation, or illustration of an idea or system, assuming that the requirements of copyright law

  • Re: Pattern copyright

    That's a myth, Gini. It doesn't matter whether you know the pattern was copyrighted or not. You bought the pattern. You can't copy the pattern and sell it, but you can certainly make a quilt. Same with licensed fabric. It doesn't matter what the selvage says. You can make and sell whatever you want, as long as you make it clear that

    Yes, she can. The pattern is what is copyrighted. That is the design and the instructions. Anything made using those instructions does not fall under the copyright issued to the quilt pattern. The pattern is what the copyright holder is selling, NOT what has been made from it. I have found a really good page about copyright and quilting that explains

    Hi, Michelle- Quilt patterns are strange beasts when it comes to copyright. If it's a traditional pattern, then what is copyrighted is the instructions.

  • Zachary's quilt - 2

    This quilt is for my stepson, who will be heading off to college in a couple of years. The design is my own, made from my longest-standing UFO. All of the gold and brown fabrics are hand-dyed by yours truly. This is a closeup of the quilting.
