  1. Re: Another shipping story, another customer disappointed, another customer who loves MSQC

    July 12 was when I heard that MSQC was in negotiations for new mail service to Canada. They hoped it would be "soon". Unfortunately not soon enough for my latest order, placed July 23- a half price...
  2. Re: Another shipping story, another customer disappointed, another customer who loves MSQC

    I heard from the MSQC feedback folk today...Sounds like we have been heard and heeded! They are going to get a different service for international customers. Hooray for them!!!
  3. Re: Another shipping story, another customer disappointed, another customer who loves MSQC

    Update: My parcel arrived just minutes ago. So it took a whole month from leaving MSQC. And, oddly, there was a Canada Post tracking number on it but FedEX doesn't let you know that. I am glad to get...
  4. Re: Another shipping story, another customer disappointed, another customer who loves MSQC

    Most of us who are complaining are NOT having a problem with MSQC's speed in gathering the different parts of the order and readying them for pickup by the shipper. In my case, I ordered a ruler that...
  5. Re: Another shipping story, another customer disappointed, another customer who loves MSQC

    Yes, the FedEx service to Canada is abysmal! My latest order was placed on June 11 and shipped on the 13th (kudos to MSQC for the quick shipping). It is now 15 business days since then (nearly 4 real...

    Re: Not impressed with FedexMalView

    Yes! This new FedEXMailVu to Canada is the pits. My first order shipped that way took ages to come and had no tracking available once it arrived (by snail) in Canada. A recent order was shipped the...

    Re: You are going to think I am crazy!

    Could it have been the Sweet Treats tutorial, which used the 10" papers called Moda cake mix recipes?

    Re: Free Motion Quilting

    I have a Pfaff Performance 5.2 and am also new to Free Motion Quilting. My machine does not allow you to have the feed dogs up when you select the free motion option (I know Leah Day recommends...
  9. Re: Help! I strongly dislike the current quilt I'm working on...

    I love the bright colours on the dark background! I agree with quiltsrfun...float the blocks, no cornerstones. Also with others who would use a simple border...probably more of the background fabric....
  10. Re: Machine quilting a Dandy Stars Table Topper?

    Re: West Coast Storm

    The wind is beginning to pick up here in Victoria. They expect the peak wind to be around 8 tonight. So far it is not anything really abnormal for us, but we are prepared.

    Re: Design Wall

    What a great idea! I am fortunate in having a lot of wall space and a lot of height in my basement My design wall is 2 4x8 sheets of 3/8" foam board. We covered each sheet with flannel (the 108" wide...
  13. Re: Machine quilting a Dandy Stars Table Topper?

    I also had an idea to do arcs around the star points. It comes out as a kind of flower. That would be a bit spirally.
  14. Re: Machine quilting a Dandy Stars Table Topper?

    I actually tried to sketch some kind of echo on the pattern but can't figure out what and where to echo. I am pretty much a beginner at the quilting part...I used to just tie my quilts.
  15. Re: A question for any gardening experts out there

    You are in Quebec? I think I would wait until the Spring. Here in Victoria, I would put them out now but back there it could get too cold much sooner. The little plants probably have softer stems...
  16. Machine quilting a Dandy Stars Table Topper?

    Help! Usually, a quilt top speaks to me, telling me how to quilt it. But the Dandy Stars Table Topper I just finished has so far been silent. I would love some ideas...I am ok doing walking foot...

    Hi from Victoria BC from a fellow quilter and tennis player! I'm pretty new here too but have found some helpful tips looking through past posts. I just looked up that quilt you are making online...
  18. Re: Dandy Stars Pattern - Has Anyone Made This?

    I am in process of making the Dandy Stars Quilt now. My half square triangles are 5" and I am using the leftover HST's to make a little table mat. I am just making a 4x4 blocks so I can use it for...

    What does FBY Waiting Mean?

    Hi...I ordered some fabric recently. Three of the 4 items very quickly went from cutting to cut to paid in the order details. However one stalled in cutting for several days and now says FBY-Waiting....
