Quilting on your sewing machine

Started this discussion. Last reply by Jennifer Schifano Thomas Apr 23, 2013. 22 Replies

Have you tried quilting on your regular sewing machine? How do you choose the batting weight? Since the harp is relatively small on a regular machine, it's pretty difficult to maneuver all that buik…Continue

Priscilla, your email asked me to contact you after seeing my profile. I'm not seeing your friend invite on here and mousing over your email address gives me a warning message.

Please re-invite and/or comment here w/your last name so I can verify and reply? Sorry to seem wary, but I've had some trouble with bad email links and just want to be sure you are legit before I respond. Thanks,

Home Again for a While, Hopefully

Whoa! It's been a busy summer so far! I've been gone more than I've been home, so now I'm playing catch up with everything. Have 1 quilt block to make for the last class I missed and 1 just finished for the class before that. It was Susanna and I had trouble with it for some reason. Had to redo the center. Still not terribly excited about it--it's not precise enough to suit me. May make another one later if I have enough fabric left after the rest of the blocks are finished. Will post photos…


Queen Top Finished!

I followed the tute and my mitered corners turned out awesome--they lay flat! The only thing my class teacher suggested is to press both seams to one side instead of pressing them open. She demonstrated why by pulling gently on the seam. When it is pressed open, it looks a bit gappy. When the seams are both pressed to the side, it doesn't do that. I'll lay this top aside now until the school year is over and my sister can help with the quilting. Once it's finished, I'll post a picture of it…


I'm Back Again

Haven't been on here much for a couple weeks. Been focused on trying to complete one of those scrap top projects that's grown! I'm not fond of oranges and browns, but my sister is. When she saw some of the crazy random 9 patch blocks I had made she thought she would like them made into a spread for their queen size bed. We finally got the blocks chosen and arranged after several attempts.

Had to be careful when adding the sashing and corner blocks as this was only my second attempt at…

we go past salem several times a year going to & from california visit family. son lives in beaverton. i think i have seen freeway sign for dallas now that you mention it. i have spent sooooo many long hours on I-5 from mexican border to canadian. i sorta get on it and go to sleep lollol...we are construction bums and found that there are a few highways with the snooze facter built in around the usa! :)) grammas attic is advertised in the free paper of crafts and events they give out around the northwest. covers idaho washington state and oregon. i have also visited and picked up her cards at shows in portland and been to her website, tho haven't bought. quilting with all the "rules" for you need this and you must have that and the only good fabric..yadayadayada...well...love viki, extremely talented. great color use...i respect her greatly, & her advice & comments. i prefer traditional fab and patterns to "modern" ...i love the clean lines of some modern like your stripe and scattered 9-patch..that is an amazing top. i get on a soap box occassionally ...hmmm ...lollollol maybe frequently. but i have always had a real serious problem with rules and right and wrong in what is intended to be creative hobby such as quilting. the only "rule" i see needed is good even seams. too frequently i see on the various forums on internet for quilters have comments fr stitchers complaining about seams coming undone in the wash. consistency and accuracy never hurt. there are a couple of quilters here that use freeform the way you have. hope you find their work. also.. i also love looking at quilts from last two centuries from european and american quilters that were blisfully unaware, it seems, of the "rules" for how to do, what to use & what to make...one of my favorite sites for cruising for ideas and inspiration -


you can refine by era..current, contemporary etc... always a fun place ro wander thru when one needs a break od an idea or just zoneing relaxation...

nice to meet you. maybe our paths will cross sometime when i am in portland or whereever.

Hi Teckla welcome to MQP!

There are so many ventures in this group that I thought I could help you find the Batik group swappers. It has been so successful that the 34+ members have any where from 244 strips swapped so far. Carla Walton and some of the other members have done some projects together in our discussion pages. If you are interested in following in a project with the gals or if you want to swap friend Carla Walton and Chef Lisa and join in on the Batik Strip swap and the new group of the Charm Squares http://myquiltplace.com/group/batik-strip-swap and http://myquiltplace.com/group/charm-square-swap.
