  1. Re: Make a "Wandering Star" Quilt with Jenny Doan

    Solid stars with a mix of low-volume prints for the rest of the block would look neat.
  2. Re: How to Make a Quilt Sandwich Using Pool Noodles

    Thank you for sharing this video! Another quilter uses a similar method, but with PVC pipe.

    I was all stoked to try this out until I realized it wouldn't work with the glue baste method...at least...

    Re: Butterfly Haven

    I like your quilt more than the one in the pattern photo. Your bolder color choices make the beautiful combination of jacob's ladder and snowball blocks really stand out. Thanks for sharing!

    Re: Oil for Juki 2010q

    The 2010 will leak excess oil, too. If you use more than a drop per hole every 8hrs of use, oil will start to ooze out of the buttons and the seams of the aluminum case.

    Re: Oil for Juki 2010q

    I use regular sewing machine oil for my Juki 2010q, but I use a needle-tip applicator like this one since it's less messy than the original bottle.

    Re: A few customized quilt labels

    Brother has a new label maker that will print on ribbon. Neat!

    I found some Etsy options that start out pretty cheap, ~$4 to $5:...

    Re: A few customized quilt labels

    What about iron-on letters or fabric paint with or without a stencil? Maybe seal any fabric paint or ink with something like Scotch Guard?

    Mystery Solid Fat Quarters

    On the last free shipping day, I ordered 15 of the mystery solid fat quarters. I received a wonderful assortment, all neatly folded. I'm super happy with what MSQC sent. This has to be one of the...

    Re: WiP Sept 6 - 12, 2019

    I've got all the blocks made for my Halloween 4 Patch Frenzy quilt. Next, I need to prewash some flannel and sew it into a new design wall. It'll hang from binder clips on hooks above my closet...

    Re: MSQC Thread in Juki 2010Q

    I wonder if a needle with a larger eye (like Topstitch) would help with the shredding. If M*'s cotton thread is 3 ply, then it could be rounder and more "fluffy" than Aurifil 50wt.

    Re: MSQC Thread in Juki 2010Q

    I have the same machine. I haven't used MSQC's cotton thread with it yet, but when I FMQed with Superior So Fine, I had to thread the machine in the alternative way described in the manual for...

    Re: Layer cakes

    Maybe doing a snip and tear down the middle of the fabric (lengthwise) would make it easier to fold and cut on the grain. Tearing fabric helps you get an on-grain edge, but you have to press it...

    Re: WIP - August 23-29, 2019

    I had to put away all my sewing equipment at the beginning of July to make room to throw out my old mattress and move in the new one. I brought back my cutting table first and had the idea to cut...

    Re: Cute free pattern

    Saved a copy. This would be great for one of my layer cakes I don't know what to do with. I wonder if I could enlarge the pattern to use all 42 squares? Each printed layer cake square makes two...
  17. Re: New Video About The Beginnings of MSQC

    A very well done and touching video. I didn't know the family went through such rough times in the beginning. I love their attitude about making the best of what you have and trying something even if...
  18. Re: Using a Roadmap for Easy Quilting

    You can get pencils just like that without paying for the quilter's markup or postage from Australia. They're no-cut tailor's pencils. You can find them at Alibaba, Amazon, and even Joann.

    I'd...
  19. Re: Fast and Easy Beginner Quilt - Quilt-in-a-day Stash Buster Quilt #2 - Free Pattern

    That turned out super cute. I love how she integrated lessons from her other videos on color theory and scrap management. I'm tempted to time myself making a simple quilt, too, but I know I'd take at...

    Re: What a daily deal!!!

    I just couldn't resist! With my QC and despite shipping, it worked out to half price per spool.
  21. Re: Beta testers needed for new MSQC Shipping program

    There's nothing wrong with wanting to promote the Hamilton stores or the quilting services.

    Faster, discounted shipping is a great way to get online shoppers to choose MSQC over the competition....
  22. Re: Beta testers needed for new MSQC Shipping program

    I think most customers would never end up using the in-town credit. I love the idea of access to the digital Block library, though.

    Edit: What about Super Bonus Quilter's Cash? That could be...
  23. Re: Beta testers needed for new MSQC Shipping program

    A machine quilting credit would encourage me to try the machine quilting service. I do my own quilting, but it would be nice to have one done for me.

    Free and/or fast shipping is fine and well,...
  24. Re: Beta testers needed for new MSQC Shipping program

    Two day shipping sounds the most attractive. The fee breaks down to a little over $12 a month. If you compare it to the $7 expedited shipping option (not 2 day, but at least same week delivery), then...
  25. Re: Programs for those in need... not me. well, maybe not.

    I personally believe healthcare is a human right. I feel it is heartless to make your fellow man go without life sustaining medicine or surgery. To me, it is an odd notion that a person has to "earn"...
