Tin lizzie troubles

Good evening from the land of the eternal heat wave, the pacific northwest.
I am hoping that someone out there has a Tin Lizzie longarm machine. I would really like to exchange information about the machine. I've only had mine sence December and it seems like all I do is take it to the store to be sent back to the shop. I am having a very difficult time with mine and I'm trying to figure out if its me or the machine!!!!!
Drop me a line, I check the blog everyday.

circles circles circles

Earlier this month I posted about trying to make a circle larger than the plates I have on the shelf. The answer was the yard stick with a twist.

I am not real big on being in small rooms, and I've always used the dinning room table when making the quilt tops, he was warned about this when we were going out. Then there is… Continue

quilting troubles

Congrads on the new family members both baby and puppy.

Ok time for thinking caps my friends. I recently posted a note about not being able to quilt because of a shoulder injury. The darn thing is taking way too long to heal, it doesn't help that I am also impatient. So I have decided to design my own quilt. I have the basic plan on paper. I am trying to make a template to scale of what I want. My problem currently is trying to draw circles that are larger than eight inches. I have… Continue

test drive??

Hi to all. I just got on to see what everyone is doing and caught the pic of our little helpers. I couldn't help but laugh. Mine aren't the helpful kind (thank god). They wait for the finished project and then the test drive!!!! This is Ivy. I no sooner spread the quilt out to admire my handy work and there she was. The quilt is from one of the magazines I get and was made for my daughter. It is also the only one that I have been able to work on in… Continue
