Hey Y'all,Who prefers free motion quilting vs. in the ditch on your HSM? I prefer in the ditch just because it is easier to handle the massive quilt. I have done free motion on one quilt and it was a…Continue

What machine do you use for home quilting?

I have a Janome 1600P which came with a New Joy frame.  It's fantastic for free motion quilting. However, I notice that when I do an upward stitch, the stitches skip, although the speed has been set…Continue

Very pretty, Janet! I have been concentrating on older projects, too.

Heal up quickly, Sherri!

About 6 yrs ago I took a class with Donna Lynn Thomas.  As I am prone to do, I left all of the supplies in a box along with the pattern & 1 completed block.  A few weeks ago I was reorganizing a shelving unit & found this box so I decided to make 3 more blocks and make a small wallhanging.  Didn't take but just a few days.  For the past couple of years I have been trying my best to finish older projects and plan on continuing to do that this year.

Janet, your table topper is beautiful. I have to get busy quilting and sewing again.

Sherri, I am so sorry to about your fall. I hope you heal quickly. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Thanks Barbara. I resisted getting an embroidery machine when they first came out because the designs were very expensive.  Then I bought my 1st one about 15 yrs ago & fell in love with doing it.  Now I'm on my 2nd machine.

lovely little quilt, Janet.  Makes me wish my sad hands would do pretty embroidery in a hoop again, or that I could afford a fancier machine than my trusty old Bernina 1130.  Was a pretty fancy machine in the days when sewing machines first were computerized at least a little and before I was so injured I had to take disability retirement.

Oh, Sherry! So sad for your injury.  I sure hope you heal fast and well.  Patience thru the waiting as healing does seem to take forever when one is in midst of it.  Daydream well of all you will do when you are able again

Thanks Debbi.

Oh no Sherri.  I hope you heal quickly with a minimum of pain.
