    Nice finds!
  2. 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 (...
  5. 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.
  11. 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.

    Re: Puppy question

    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...

    Re: Being Volunteered!

    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...

    Re: Kitchen done

    Your window coverings are really gorgeous- you did a wonderful job on them and all the rest looks great too. Very inspiring.
  17. Re: Let's talk about the elephant in the room. Your stash.

    My stash is my happy place, where I can shop and plan whenever I please. I refuse to feel any guilt over it, and yes, I still buy fabric occasionally when I see something I love, or find I need a...
  18. Re: I'm sitting here laughing myself silly!

    I have a pretty substantial stash, much of it bought during the years I lived in remote locations, thus no fabric stores handy. I do my best to sew from it, but often find myself needing a different...

  23. Re: Do you have to ask if you accept checks now?

    We have a 13 year old grandson that lives with us. The banks have made it almost impossible for him to cash a check. He does yard work and chores for people and they often pay him with a check. The...

    Re: Got prize ribbons?

    That is the neatest ribbon quilt I have ever seen. My kids were in 4-H so we used to have lots of those around. Most were in a storage building that a tree fell on so were destroyed.
