Debbi---Where did you get the pattern for the Bow Tuck Bags? They're adorable and you did such a good job on yours. Love your fabrics. All of your projects are just great---such talent. Thanks,

Nancy

Debbi, hi. Thanks for the info. It sounds like a really good class. I hope to have my sewing room set back up soon and I can't wait to get started on a new project. Please keep me posted as you do any embroidery quilting.

Hi. Thanks for the okay on "friend." After I asked the question, wasn't to certain about it being so new to the site, etc. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. My dealer isn't what you call really really supportive and I wish I had purchased a Bernina -- but, I do love mine and will just have to live with the dealer -- all they want to do is sell -- which I understand in some ways, but I have purchased 3 machines from them and at my age, this is probably my last and I don't want to be written off. :-)

You are sew busy -- and the Kaleidoscope quilt sounds exciting. I did all the handwork on my wall hanging Sunday watching the Detroit Lion/Chicago Bears game. Not a football nut, but my nephew has worked for the Lions (IT Technology Engineer) for several years and I support them. Which they need all they can get. LOL

Went to a Floriani stabilizer seminar yesterday and learned so much from the Floriana rep. Explained a lot of whys on some of my embroidery. If you go to the www.rnkdistributing.com site and click on the Floriani page and then find the workbook tab, splains it all as Lucy used to say. I had just done a "practice" place mat that had embroidered panels and while the pattern was small, it was dense and puckered some around the edges -- now I know why and what will correct it.

Next seminar is Sue Hausmann on 11/14 -- and all day and she will do demos and we don't have sew -- just listen and learn. My dealer had one instructor that was so good, but drat -- she retired, so don't do many emb classes outside our Emb Club.

Well, time to head to the sewing room -- have to do a little rearranging as my husband wants to wash the windows and I have to clear them for him.

good to hear from you --

Good morning Debbi. Enjoyed your note and thank you for the nice compliments. What brand of embroidery machine do you have? I have a Viking Designer SE/LE. When I started using mine, I did get a few classes, but found that I could do more on my own and with my books. Classes with a lady here in SB that previously owned a Husqvarna dealership and expertise on their embroidery machines has given me confidence and "no fear" in using it. She summers in Truckee and is due back this month and offering new classes. She sent me a website yesterday that offers free EClasses in embroidery. www.embroidery.com/EClasses. I finished a wall hanging kit yesterday -- the binding fabric they included was short about 5 inches, so had to rip out and search my stash for comparable material -- and it's ready to finish the hand stitching. Because the wall hanging is long and narrow, I did an echo around the design. My first time and it wasn't bad. I still don't "free motion" except in practice. Have to bite the bullet and get out there. Keep in touch and I look forward to your posting of your latest projects. I'll be posting mine as soon as it's finished. May I add you as a friend?

Debbi, I just viewed your photos -- lovely. You do beautiful work. I like the log cabin and your husband did a wonderful job picking colors.

Debbi, where in Tucson do your parents live? I am in a community called SaddleBrooke right at the base of the Catalinas north of Tucson. We love it out here. I bought my embroidery machine in 2007 -- but I have been quilting since about 2001 or 2002 -- not as much then as I am doing it now. I still have so much to learn, but really enjoy the process. My sister is still working (there's 17 years between us) but she sure can turn it all out. She lives in NC near Asheville. We're planning for me to go with her to the Pigeon Forge quilt show next March. I went to the Tucson Quilt Craft & Sewing Festival yesterday. Lots of interesting vendors. Gorgeous fabrics and some really pretty patterns. Yesterday was the first day and it people were snapping up some really good items. I like this site and happy that I found it -- lovely group.

Hi Debbi. Thank you for the "welcome to the group." I am in Tucson. I am a relative new comer to quilting and embroidery. Enjoying the process so much. Retired. My picture is a "sewing sisters doll" made by my baby sister, who is also a quilter. She made two dolls that are supposed to be the two of us. I treasure them very much. When I can, I'll post on the site. She's responsible for my entry into this world. Now, I am going to browse your photos --

Thanks for the kind comments! My house is pretty safe but the schools were closed today because some of the roads were flooded. My daughter was happy!

Sandy, I know the feeling. However, my husband bought me a pair of electric scissors for Christmas two years ago. They have been a life saver! There is only one problem - they don't work on a double sided rag quilt! The fabric doesn't lay "in one direction" far enough to let the scissors do the cutting. The purple/blue rag quilt (Out of This World) took me forever to snip, because I had to use regular scissors! Along with a beautiful double-sided rag quilt, I had a very sore right hand.

What beauatiful rag quilts. My hand is sore thinking of all the cutting. I made a raggy jacket and a small Xmas tree quilt. Hand was sore from cutting, maybe its just my old hands!

Absolutely love your quilts! Where in Glendale? I lived on 49th Ave. for a while. Loved it then and miss it now.

Thanks for the nice comments. Being retired certainly helps me have the time to get things done!!! However, I do find myself putting off until tomorrow things I'm not real excited about doing.

Hi Debbi - Annandale is about 40 miles west of Mpls and about 10 miles west of Buffalo. I actually bought the 'monkey' quilt kit at Patchwork Alley in Buffalo. The kit was for turtles (I think) so I downloaded monkey patterns from emblibrary.com to make it for theme of my niece's nursery. I love kits for the purpose of 'quick' quilts as I seem to come up with last minute gifts all the time! I use my Bernina mainly for embroidery and use a featherweight for piecing - love the nice even stitches of my featherweight.

Thanks for the comments on the Minke baby quilt. I did use stabilizer and a walking foot but it still drove me crazy. Well if enough time goes by maybe I'll forget about the minke trouble and use it again. Your quilts are beautiful. Did you enjoy making the quilts from the denim material? That is one of the next projects I am going to tackle. Do you have any pointers? Have a great day and Happy Quilting. Gina
