  1. Re: Can't You See the BUTTERFLY BLOOMS IN THIS QUILT??

    Barbara, that’s good to know. It shouldn’t be that hard, but I did find it odd that Donna, when making the block, kept saying “we sew this piece to this piece, but first we have to sew these two...
  2. Re: I am wondering what I should know when checking out old sewing Machines to purchase???

    That’s a Singer 66, decals commonly called a “red eye” by collectors. It is a fairly common machine, although a beautiful one, and parts are available, uses the common 15x1needle and a class 66...

    Re: Featherweight question

    Maybe a 99, a smaller “3/4” size machine? Easy to convert to electric if it is.
  4. Re: Have you ever had this problem with Amazon?

    The only time I had an Amazon order go astray, their tracking caught it and they notified me. Sent a replacement quickly. As for delivery times, we are in a rural area, so are usually a day or two...
  5. Re: Make a "Bud Bouquet" Quilt with Jenny Doan

    It’s a cute quilt pattern, and the fabric is striking- but I can’t for the life of me see how she came to pair them together.

    Re: Secret Santa 2020 January Theme

    I found a really cute pattern called “Hide and Seek” - would that do?
  7. Re: tangled bobbin thread at start of seam

    Unfortunately they’re right - the thread cutter cuts the thread too short and it tangles at the start. I have a Janome too, and have the same issue. Disappointing, because I love the theory. I have...

    Re: darts on the microwave bowl cozy

    Try pinching it at the darts with your fingers or pin it, until it looks like you want it to, and see how much more you’ve taken it in. This should allow you to adjust your dart measurements for...

    Re: Heads up In Jan 2020

    Sounds like fun! Off to join the Shop your stash group. I had missed that one, but I definitely try to sew from my stash when possible.

    Nice finds!
  12. Re: T-Shirt Quilts - Why don't you like making them?

    I’ve made several- mostly as a way to save old shirts that kids want to keep and I don’t want to store any more. They are not hard to make ( do use the interfacing on the back to keep the stretch...

    Re: Paypal

    I haven’t had that problem, but I did find it strange that, when I purchased from M* the other day, it seems to have my Paypal info saved. Usually when I buy something from a website using PayPal, it...

    Re: Fudge it

    It’s fabric - the same “give “ that sometimes gives us headaches can work for us as well. I never figured out why seamstresses know about “ease” but quilters never heard of it. There are exceptions (...
  15. Re: I may be in over my head on this next one......

    Ok, in defense of old ladies and quilts everywhere, here is a picture of a quilt my MIL made for us many years ago. Double knits, single knits, corduroy, velvet, you name it, she used what she had...

    Re: Tension troubles... I think.

    Definitely sounds like you are not releasing your top tension, which is released when raising the presser foot. I can see where you might forget when free motion quilting. Personally I usually have...

    Re: Large Print Quilts

    I just bought a book off eBay called “Just Can’t Cut It” by Pamela Mostek that has some great ideas for large print fabric quilts. My favorite is one called “Ribbons and Rows” that separates strips...

    Re: Which Bobbins for Janome 8050

    I don’t have an 8050, but I’ve seen with a Janome for several years. I found its worth it to find the “J” bobbins for it. They are pretty easy to find.
  21. Re: Fabric suggestions for United States quilt

    I can send Idaho potatoes and forest fabric for Oregon or Washington if you can use them. Also think I still have one of cowboys and beef cattle that looks like Oregon desert. I once did an Idaho...

    Re: Here's why we are smiling

    He is actually a dun - buckskin with a line down his back, black mane and tail. No name yet - he will name himself as we get to know him. We will have two more sometime in the next month.

    There is no way I would deal with the person you talked with - for that kind of money they should at least be polite and helpful!

    I have always enjoyed the puppy stage, it is a lot of work. You...

    You have received really good advice here, and yes, when it is spoiling the fun of belonging to the group, it is time to stand up for yourself.

    Two thoughts: first, that you must be incredibly...
