    Re: Looking at a new machine

    I don't know anything about these machines, I am a vintage machine girl myself. I do own one computerized machine - a Husqvarna that I have never sewn a single stitch on!

    What I have read, though,...

    Re: Wool Pressing Mat Brand

    That's what happened. I don't know whether we made the mistake or they did, but too late, now. Good to know that the other one works, though.

    Re: Wool Pressing Mat Brand

    That is where she ordered from too. I wondered if they sent the wrong one. I remember we looked at a tan one, but when it came it was a lighter color. Hhhmmm....

    Re: Wool Pressing Mat Brand

    I passed that tip on to my cousin, who ordered one. Boy was she unhappy when it melted to her iron..... it claimed to be 100% wool.

    I bought two from QIAD when they were on sale and am very happy...

    Re: Hello I am ThornCherish

    Welcome from Florida!

    I love vintage machines also :-) I have a treadle, but have not even tried to learn on it. I plan to figure it out when I retire next year.
  7. Re: Anyone use a Sizzix or other fabric die cutting machine?

    I "share" an accuquilt Studio with a friend - she bought the machine and I have purchased some dies - including a custom one for cutting multiple sizes of strips (based on Bonnie Hunter's scrap users...

    Re: Making cat quilt, looking for fabric

    Jenny uses two different backgrounds in her quilt. Maybe use Black/dark gray for the lighter fabrics and a medium gray for the darker fabrics, keeping in mind that the black backgrounds could end up...

    Prayers for you all. It is so hard seeing our babies getting older. Sounds like you are doing everything for her.

    Yes, she did. I have not done that, but Eleanor Burns has mentioned that she mixes flannel with cotton.

    Re: Tiny Squares

    I take the "triangles" that have been cut away from COC circles, pair them up, then stitch at a 45 degree angle across. They can then be trimmed down into a HST unit. You have a different angle, but...

    Re: Strings?!@

    If the pieces were so small, maybe you didn't need to pick them out? Tiny pieces of paper will disintegrate in the wash. The problem I see with using fabric as a foundation is that you can get...

    Great info - Thanks!

    I didn't know they did free shipping at $100. I wonder if I could find a $100 worth of fabric?????

    Sorry, not at all what I was saying. I am totally disgusted by throw away everything. We claim to be worried about the environment, but yet pitch tons and tons of plastic machines of every kind into...

  18. Re: Make a "Pumpkin Spice" Quilt with Jenny Doan

    One of my favorites of Jenny's recent tutorials! I love the JR choice too, but have one in much more muted colors that I think would work well too.

    And the list grows longer.....

    I've wondered about those and how long the "folding strip" will last? I can see they would be handy for travel.

    Re: Folded Corner Ruler

    So many of the "specialty rulers" really are just the basics, re-named and repackaged. I try not to buy any that I can use my basic rulers to do the same thing. I do have the small version of the...

    Re: Halloween Panel Quilt

    We would have never known! It does look pieced. Really cute. Do you remember the name or fabric line? My DD's birthday is Halloween and she would love it.

    Re: Need a sewing machine

    For piecing, a straight stitch only machine is the way to go. If you do garment sewing, you may want some more features. I love vintage machines and they are readily available for as little as $20....
