    Re: Missouri Star Cotton Thread

    If the way you have been filling your bobbins, and sewing, for that matter, is working well for you, then I would just continue. If it's a new and expensive machine, surely the engineers who designed...

    Re: Onward-Restart after Mom's passing

    I think it will get easier to remember her and work on her projects as time goes by. Hopefully you and your wife had a good relationship with her so most of the memories are tinged with happiness and...

    I wonder if the bee sting had an effect on his ankle that was only triggered by the vaccine. Maybe the histamine levels stayed high in the sting site, but were manageable until the shot lowered his...

    Re: Missouri Star Cotton Thread

    Many years ago my father in law made a thread spindle for cones. (He tailored clothing and was an avid sewing machine guy) He used a 4" heavy cast metal disc with a hole in the center. He used a 5"...

    Re: Help!! Machine Won't FMQ Backwards!?!

    Could the weight of the quilt be pulling the needle to one side or front or back? Try a small practice piece and see if it is better. Maybe a larger (thicker) needle would help.
    Good luck; this is...

    Re: Jelly roll for binding?

    I like to use the left over jelly rolls and pieces for binding. If the pieces are less than about 15 inches, I don't try to use them, because there are just too many seams to contend with. I do sew...

    Re: Cutting mat stench

    You may have to just buy a mat and leave it out in the garage or outside for a few weeks. I find lots of new products have chemical smells at first, but it dissipates in time.

    Re: When is a quilt just too ugly to continue?

    I like it, and I don't even like orange very much. Why not do something else for the new baby, then you might feel better about this one, and be able to finish it and donate it. Sometimes we make...

    Re: Can you help ID this pattern, please?

    I agree about the iron cross look, and once you see it, you can't unsee it. I wonder how it would look if the center square of each cross were left white, rather than yellow? I can't quite visualize...

    Re: BINDING

    Apparently there are more folks than I thought who machine sew their binding, front and back. Yay! I'm not the only one.
    I had to give up hand sewing. I, too, find it works better if the binding...

    Re: Need help cutting yardage please

    I just want to remind everyone that when you buy precuts, they are rarely cut on the straight of the grain. Sometimes they are really wonky. So if it is OK to use these in a pieced top, in which you...
  17. Re: hello, newbie, looking for quilting machine purchase help

    Hi, and Welcome! Even if you find a good machine with a larger throat, you may find that there is not much room to the left of the needle. When you are doing the quilting itself, you will be happier...

    Re: On-line fabric ordering?

    I think for your special project coming up you should treat yourself to a trip to M* and pick out the fabric in person.

    If you look at the daily deals that M* runs, you can see all the colors in the precut, and further down the page, some suggestions for solids that go with the deal. I sometimes just buy one or two...

    I'm wondering if some rubber finger cots, or the things people wear on their thumbs to flip through pages fast, or even just the cut off fingers and thumbs of some rubber gloves would work. I use...

    I have that precut too. I think it is Charlotte. It is pretty busy, but at least the colors and patterns are coordinated. When you use your new precut, if you are still put off by its busy-ness, you...

    Re: Freemotion quilting or stitch in the ditch

    Or you could do a pattern of straight lines both across and up and down, making a cross hatch. It would reinforce the repetitive pattern of the squares. I think.
