When time allows, yes, I am a "pathetic quilter"! Would love to quilt more so that I could complete a project worthy of showing to family and friends!!I posted this under Lady Preppers, although I do know that men can quilt just as well.
Just wondering if there are any other quilters here on the forum?
Hi Shenandoah!When time allows, yes, I am a "pathetic quilter"! Would love to quilt more so that I could complete a project worthy of showing to family and friends!!
Have you ever heard of Ricky Tims??? He is the quilting guru! He has a syndicated quilting show, even does quilting cruises! Look him up online...simply amazing!
Sounds like a perfect quilt to me!!!I do quilt, but I don't do the fancy ones. Mainly 9 patch and bandana quilts. I have a quilt top I found in one of my work baskets that I'd forgot I'd made a few years ago, so I need to get it backed. The last quilt I did was last month and the kidlet helped. It was for her birthday and she wanted to learn to quilt. She's now working on one for her friend.
aint there 40 year old sewing machines that work just fine when there's a good oprater beside it? LOL
Don't count out the older machines, really. It might be worth having it looked at (depending on it's condition, of course). I've found that they certainly don't make them like they used to and the older ones have the durability that you you just have a hard time finding today. I've found some older machines (fromt he '40's and 50's) at yard sales that were in great shape and were only $5-$10.Darn, there goes THAT excuse! How about that my sewing machine is 40 years old and barely works? And I really don't know how to use it. It was a hand-me-down. I'd have to invest in a better one and right now everything is slated for something or other!
