  • Re: What is your favorite surface technique?

    My favorite technique is thread. I find the colors so varied and the thicknesses create different effects. I never feel one of my pieces has come alive until I have changed the textures with thread. Most often I build the piece and it seems flat, like painting a canvas. But then, I get out my palette...

  • night shift and quilting

    I'm working the nite shift at our local hospital . It doesn't stop me from thinking about quilting and usually shopping that is quilt related. I must admit I'm obsessed and this site gives me such great ideas. It also helps me realize that when we stray from traditional we are actually honoring...

  • Marking for Free Motion

    I normally just go for it with free motion, so I have no experience with marking. I have a quilt ready for quilting (lap quilt) and I think it needs a more structured quilting pattern. I have a pounce bag and have used it with stencils (ones used for painting) I'll be glad to get your advise. Thanks...

  • Re: What sewing machine do you use?

    I use a Juki TL98Q for free motion quilting. I LOVE it! A few weeks ago our house alarm system went crazy blasting fire, fire, fire. I ran around the house to see if it was a false alarm, threw Toby, our aussie, on the patio for safety, and then decided the first thing to save is the Juki! It does only...
