    Thea, I'm so happy that your little guy is doing well! I didn't see your posts about Tito until just now. I hope everything continues to go OK during his recovery.

  • Re: How did you get introduced into machine embroidery?

    Gosh, I don't know if I remember back that far! I had a Brother embroidery machine for a very long time. It didn't have a way to hook up to a USB and required the memory cards that were very expensive. A little less than a year ago upgraded to a Janome 12000. I use that machine for general sewing and for embroidery. I'm still learning the

  • Re: Picture Piecing

    Thanks for the input, everyone. The technique looks great in the videos that I watched on You Tube but it seems to be a lot of work. I may try one of her small kits sometime. Right now, I think I prefer to tear away all those tiny pieces of paper that get stuck in the stitches. That seems to be a lot less work than picture piecing!

  • Picture Piecing

    I came across a technique by Cynthia England called "picture piecing" and wonder if anyone has tried it. It's similar to foundation paper piecing but you don't have to tear away all the papers when you're done. I'm thinking of trying out one of her patterns. Has anyone tried it and what are your thoughts about it? Her web site

  • Re: Quilting machines

    Pat, if there is a quilt show nearby, that's the best place to find out about any type of machine. Take lots of time to talk to each of the vendors and try out the machines. Longarms are great! When I bought my Gammill, my intention was to just find a machine with computer assisted quilting. I was immediately sold with the first demo of the Gammill

  • Re: Pictures of quilts

    Pat, I think it's pretty hard to show the quilting in a photo of an entire bed size quilt unless a heavy contrasting thread was used. I like to use a thread that blends in with the fabrics and mostly use a #50 So Fine. I always just take a closeup of the quilting.

    Pat, what size of machine are you thinking of- domestic or longarm? If you are thinking about a longarm, I can tell you all the wonderful things about a Gammill!

  • Re: Quiltmaker Bitty Blocks

    Jan, great work on all of your blocks! Kris, I haven't been doing any bitty blocks either. I keep forgetting about them! It's hard for me to work on things for myself. I have so many other things to get done. Right now I have a quilt on the longarm for DD2, i've promised to do two memory quilts for someone, plus I need to make a quilt for

  • Re: Error message

    Back on March 23rd I sent a PM to Rachel saying that I hadn't seen her on this site other than her name with the free pattern postings and asked if she was OK. Here's her reply: "Everything is A-OK! Just very busy with the "other" aspects of work. But not to fear, I am still here at QCA!" But that was three weeks ago. It
