Thanks all Smiley

If anyone is interested, here is the original pattern for the stars.  I loved the way that they're not symmetrical. 

For the baby quilt, I just enlarged the size of the squares and reduced the overall  size of the quilt.

334  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / John Deere Baby Quilt and Star Baby Quilt (pics!) on: January 06, 2009 03:03:57 PM
I was browsing this forum and thought I would share a couple of quilts a friend and I did this year. 

The first is the star quilt.  This was our first attempt at a real quilt for both of us.  We even had to research the binding before we did it.  The pattern was supposed to be paper piece but pfffftttt  we just pieced it Cheesy  Turned out great. 





The second quilt we did started a fabric hunt for a quilt for a male coworker.  He's a huge John Deere fan.  I called my friend from the states to ask "Do you think his wife has a sense of humour??  Cuz I"m looking at John Deere fabric!"

I thought it was going to be a tacky joke kind of quilt but it turned out quite nice! EVerything was John Deere even the backing.

Well, that was after we unstitched the table cloth from it.  :/  As we were machine quilting, it was getting tough and suddenly the machine stopped.  We thought it was just thick where the seam was.  Then we looked under the quilt to find taht the flannel pulled up the linen tablecloth and we had sewn a good 6 inches onto the quilt  Embarrassed  We laughed so hard.  And he has a great story to tell about his quilt.

Thank you so much for figuring this out!!  Every scene in the movie with the mittens, I could only stare at the mittens.

I've enlisted my mom to make them for me Cheesy  She hasn't seen the pattern yet but I'm sure she can do it.

I'm trying to find the wool but its listed as discontinued.  i can find it in black but not charcoal or grey.  Do you know of a site somewhere that has some?  Or a suitable alternative???

Thanks Smiley

Thank you for this pattern!!   I was with kids I volunteer with on Christmas and brought pink denim to make somehitng with the girl.  Didn't know what to make then this pattern came to mind.  it was so simple, I had it memorized.  It was the first one I made.  She loved it.  it was simple and unlined but she still loved it.

Sorry for being a bit clueless, but where does the name come from - Frenchie bag?

Janey

I have no idea.  I even tried looking it up!  Different bags seem to be called Frenchie.

wOot!  Always reluctant to start, I found it pretty easy.  Except the final stitch along the outside along the top and main panel.  Its messy.  I redid it twice now and have  a little bunch on the outside i need to fix.

Anyway, here it is!  I used an old pair of worn out jeans for the denim on the top.








Sorry for the links, apparently I haven't posted 10 times.

Dont' even stitch with it necessarily.. Just turn the nob back and forth a few time in case something is stuck.   But sounds like you need a tune up

The only other thing I can think of is to cycle the stitches - through the different lengths and types to make sure nothing is stuck.

Otherwise, sounds like it will need a pro-tuneup.
