    Re: Update On Dottie

    Prayers for you all. It is so hard seeing our babies getting older. Sounds like you are doing everything for her.

    Re: different fabrics on quilt top

    Yes, she did. I have not done that, but Eleanor Burns has mentioned that she mixes flannel with cotton.

    Re: Tiny Squares

    I take the "triangles" that have been cut away from COC circles, pair them up, then stitch at a 45 degree angle across. They can then be trimmed down into a HST unit. You have a different angle, but...

    Re: Strings?!@

    If the pieces were so small, maybe you didn't need to pick them out? Tiny pieces of paper will disintegrate in the wash. The problem I see with using fabric as a foundation is that you can get...

    Great info - Thanks!

    I didn't know they did free shipping at $100. I wonder if I could find a $100 worth of fabric?????

    Re: Machine lifespan

    Sorry, not at all what I was saying. I am totally disgusted by throw away everything. We claim to be worried about the environment, but yet pitch tons and tons of plastic machines of every kind into...

    I agree that Eleanor's method would be much easier, but was happy to see how Donna does it. Different strokes for different folks....

  10. Re: Make a "Pumpkin Spice" Quilt with Jenny Doan

    One of my favorites of Jenny's recent tutorials! I love the JR choice too, but have one in much more muted colors that I think would work well too.

    And the list grows longer.....

    Re: Folded Corner Ruler

    I've wondered about those and how long the "folding strip" will last? I can see they would be handy for travel.

    Re: Folded Corner Ruler

    So many of the "specialty rulers" really are just the basics, re-named and repackaged. I try not to buy any that I can use my basic rulers to do the same thing. I do have the small version of the...

    Re: Halloween Panel Quilt

    We would have never known! It does look pieced. Really cute. Do you remember the name or fabric line? My DD's birthday is Halloween and she would love it.

    Re: Need a sewing machine

    For piecing, a straight stitch only machine is the way to go. If you do garment sewing, you may want some more features. I love vintage machines and they are readily available for as little as $20....

  22. Re: Jordan Fabrics tour of their company & store

    It does look like a fun place to visit! I hope on my next trip to SFO to visit my sister to take a road trip up there - it is about a 5 hour drive so may involve an overnight stay.

    Re: Anyone else thought about this?

    Not necessarily. Many, maybe most, vintage machines were left behind by people who have passed away. As far as more "options" - for basic piecing, which the OP was considering a second machine for,...

    Re: Anyone else thought about this?

    That's why I use vintage machines. I have a computerized machine but never use it. If it was to crash, it would be in the garbage, they are too expensive to repair. Sadly, no matter how much you pay...
  25. Re: Make a "Fancy Flight" Quilt with Jenny Doan

    Definitely works!

    Pretty quilt....Like the way she alternated the light and dark backgrounds in the columns. Since it was an uneven number of columns, you wouldn't have equal numbers of lights and...
