    Seriously Disappointed in Order Handling

    Back on December 11th I placed an order for a Christmas themed jelly roll. I saw it available on a competitor's site but I like to give my business to MSQ and earn free points. I even visited their...

    Re: Has anyone tried Big Stitch Quilting?

    Big stitch quilting has been on my radar for a couple of months now. Thinking I need to give it a try on a top I just finished. I really like the look of it. Seems like it would be a great project...

    Re: How does one politely back out of a class?

    Most LQS around here don't allow refunds on patterns or books. It is usually posted in the store near where those items are sold. I understand it but don't like it.

    Am I the only one that is...

    Re: Pre-wound bobbin source

    I second this suggestion. I use a Babylock Melody and cannot use pre-wound bobbins. The bobbins for my Melody are taller than pre-wound bobbins are. Be sure to check with your manufacture and know...

    Okay, this Big Stitch Quilting looks VERY interesting to me! I like the big graphic impression it produces and since little teeny tiny stitches are not my thing this is right up my alley. Will...

    Re: Fiskars circle cutter

    I use the Olfa circle cutter. Saw a demo of it at a quilt show. That helped a lot getting a decent shape and cut.
  9. Re: Has anyone ever used a color for your quilt top design? Especially on white?

    I agree with Easyquilts. I know when I take my tops to the longarmer she pulls out different spools and unwinds a long piece of thread then lays it over the quilt to see if I like how it looks. Of...

    Kayla thank you for posting about this. I was not aware of this before. I love houses and this is really cute. I will have to play catch up but I'm going to give it a whirl. :)

    Use them on the back. Incorporate it around the quilt label.

    It took one time of doing that and I started using a spreadsheet to keep track of my projects and purchases.

    Re: Sticker Shock today!

    Three years ago I had been eyeing a Babylock machine at my local dealer for $1,700. It was just a pipe dream as it was never going to happen but I saw it every time I went in the shop and admired it...

    Re: Orange Peel - bit off more than I can chew?

    Craftysweetpeas I could HUG YOU! That is the fix for the issues I was having. I cut out all the peels, stitched the interfacing on, no problem, appliqued the peel to each individual charm block and...

    Re: Orange Peel - bit off more than I can chew?

    I will finish this. It may take me a long time but I've already invested in the fabric (4 patterned and 4 solid charm packs) so it will get done. Slow and steady wins the race. I try to learn from...

    Orange Peel - bit off more than I can chew?

    I came to the conclusion last night that the orange peel quilt I was so looking forward to making is not going to be fun at all. It took me 30 minutes to complete one four piece block. That doesn't...

    Thank you so much for your help! Since it is a jelly roll top I don't have any other fabric from the top that can be added to the back. The drawing from Karen is exactly what I was looking for. ...

    Re: Help With Backing

    I am sending it to a longarmer to be quilted. I see what you mean about cutting it in half but that doesn't leave 4" on either side, which is what I have read most longarmers want due to shrinkage. ...
