    I use quilt block embroideries on my sandwiched quilts all the time. As was mentioned above, I also get mine from Embroidery Library. It's one of my favourite ways to quilt my quilts.

    You don't...

    I purchased a bag of plastic clamps from Home Depot (10 assorted size clamps for about $10 CDN). I clamp the backing to my table wrong side up, spray, add the batting spray again and then add the...
  11. Re: My little furbaby, Maggie, lost her battle with cancer today.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. Unfortunately, I know just how you're feeling. We had to do the same thing on Monday afternoon. I can't remember the last time I've felt this sad.
  12. Re: Cotton or cotton/poly blend for placemats?

  13. Re: How many of you have dreamed of wanting a Kitchen Aid Mixer?

    I've had my Kitchen Aid mixer for many years now. Sometimes I use it a lot and sometimes it sits for a long time before I use it again.

    I keep it on my counter not just because it's heavy, but...

    Re: Appreciate M* care with packing!

    I don't work for any postal service but I'm going to stick my neck out with a guess as to why it was left beneath a bush. Chances are it may have to do with the number of thefts of packages being...

    Thank you, Carlie Wolf. It took me a while but it was a fun make.

    Re: T-shirt quilt questions

    I had the same project earlier this for my son and daughter-in-law. I took most of the fabrics from the jackets and incorporated them into different basic blocks. A few I highlighted as a block on...

  20. Re: What do you take to Quilt Retreats/Classes? How do you pack it all in?

    I have a Pfaff Passport 3.0. It's a perfect little machine for travel. The power cord and foot pedal fit into the top of the carrying case, and the extension table has it's own case which attaches to...
  21. Re: What do you dislike about your sewing machine?

    Re: Binding Class

    Sounds like an awesome class! Now I don't feel like I'm doing it wrong when I cut my binding at 2".
    I've been doing that lately with smaller items but now I feel confidant in trying the 2" binding...
