    Re: Don't know what this is called

    It is sometimes hard to translate American humor to British humor and vice versa.
    This is a joke.

    Re: Storage Inspiration

    It looks like a old fashioned [like 15 years ago] TV armoire. I have seen several nice ones at the thrift store, a talented carpenter and lot of shelves could be added plus a pull out table. They do...

    Re: Don't know what this is called

    Mine has never done that particular thing but he knows when there is something new in the sewing room and immediately lays on it to nap.

    I also did another...

    Re: Baby clothes input please!

    My DIL used the changing/play mats more than anything else. I made several and they were in use for about 4 years while the two kids were in diapers. They saw more use than any clothes could be.
    If...
  9. Re: Make a "Mountain Lily" Quilt with Jenny Doan

    I like that quilt but as usual my mind was thinking about how to change it a little. :icon_rolleyes:
    I would like the top of each block quarter squares be sky colored, lol. Either the green is a bit...

    Re: Juki 2200QVP problems

    I have had one about a year and the only two problems I have had are pretty simple. It doesn't like to sew northwest and will often break thread or make a knot. It also started having a blackish oily...
  12. Re: Newbie needs advice on choosing backing

    I usually choose a backing that has a pattern so my many mistakes don't show. I don't think dark or light makes as much difference as having a pattern does.
    I just made a quilt using flannel as the...

    Re: Are there border width rules?

    My idea about borders is there can't be enough, lol. Actually I either go with what a pattern says if using one or by how big I want the quilt or by how much border fabric I have.

    Re: fmq on Frolic

    Here it is partly quilted. As you might be able to see I didn't do the hst borders just used some of the fabric to finish it off. I felt like it was busy enough without adding the hst around. I also...

    Re: Need batting information please.

    The 80/20 is my preference but I have no tried wool yet. I found cotton to be too flat and poly tends to mat if ironed and I iron my bindings.

    Re: fmq on Frolic

    I haven't made a picture yet but I will when I finish.
    I went and stared at it for a while and started doing swirls which is looking ok. I did the back in flannel and it is heavy to move around. I...

    Re: Half-square triangle fun

    I have been using some of the cake mix papers for hst and they work pretty well, squared up as you trim the paper. I have a roll of hst paper that I have never used that will make bigger ones that I...

    Re: WIP- February 7-13, 2020

    It might be best to sandwich the quilt then cut off the excess back.
  20. Re: Help please. machine binding on front wrinkles

    Are you using bias binding or is it straight across the width of fabric? Bias is much more likely to pucker/wrinkle. A walking foot should help as others have mentioned.

    I managed to get my Frolic mystery quilt sandwiched yesterday. I made it a little smaller than the pattern and didn't do the hst borders, it is pretty busy so I just did a small stop border and a 3"...

    Re: Half-square triangle fun

    Some of my stash is a mystery, sometimes I think it reproduces in the closet. Usually it is in lengths that are not quite enough for my project.:icon_heh:

    Re: Flannel quilt

    Are you going to FMQ it or use a walking foot? Usually one gauges the size of the needle by the type of thread but when FMQ you might need a larger one. I would probably try a little sample using a...
  25. Re: Ruler Foot trouble, tension problems? Need help :(

    Does it work OK with your regular hopping foot? I think I would try and see if you can fmq normally then change to the ruler foot and see if it works right.
