    You may already have the machine, but if you haven't, the harp size is only 7.4" long -- basically a standard sized machine. The bed size is 11.4" but that includes the area to the left of the needle. I'm sure this will be a great machine for general sewing, but it will be difficult to quilt anything larger than a lap sized quilt on

    Judy -- I like your version better than the original. I've been wanting to learn needle turned applique, so maybe this will be a good project to do that on. Off to download the pattern (to add to my 300+ other patterns I've downloaded. <sigh>

  • Re: 9 tops finished

    Geoh -- good for you in seeing a diminishing stash. I just finished two more tops, so have made (or finished) 13 so far this year. All from stash except for two yards I needed to buy for one of them. We haven't heard from QCARachel for quite some time so wonder if she's still around. I hope so as she seemed to want to be involved in the board

  • Re: 9 tops finished

    Thanks, Judy. I think they are two different groups. I joined "the great stash down" where those who complete the most UFOs or use the most yardage (or both?) win a prize. I don't expect to win a prize, but thought it would be fun to compete with others. But the guidelines are a bit fuzzy. However, since the retreat put me in a "finish"

    [quote user="Debbie"] Bridget-Carol, what's the pattern called of last one? I like that - wouldn't mind making one myself [/quote] It is "Tiddlywinks"--one of my favourite "quick" patterns. I like it because it uses 4-1/2" and 2-1/2" scraps. When I work on a quilt, I cut the odds and ends into 4-1/2 and

  • 9 tops finished

    I finished 9 tops in the last two weeks. 4 were from UFOs and 5 were from stash fabric. The pics of 8 of them are in the Branson Retreat page in "off topic". http://www.quiltersclubofamerica.com/forums/p/49719/723727.aspx#723727 I'm confused as to how we report our progress. Is there a thread where we can do this? I notice the progress

    I've been home since last Sunday night, but kind of out of sorts due to picking up a cold and having a toothache. Yuk! It was a wonderful time, and many thanks to Beth for keeping this board updated. I ended up with 8 completed tops and a 9th almost done. Most of them were UFOs, so although it was a lot, none of them took much work. Now to get these

    I ended up staying an extra night due to Oklahoma being pretty much shut down. Wish I could get to Texas without going through OK! Nana, Diana, Liz, Gretchen, Leah, Gail and a couple of others are also here, but I haven't seen them except for Diana at breakfast. It snowed all day, but hopefully I can get out tomorrow. So since I was stuck in the
