I just inherited a Husqvarna Designer 1 with the floppy drive from my Nana. I grabbed what I could out of the sewing room, but I'm sure I'm missing things for my machine.
I have/grabbed hoops, the embroidery arm, a usb plug in floppy drive for my computer, the power cord, foot pedal, material, interfacing, water soluble backing, sulky thread, regular thread, and whatever feet and needles I could find. I also grabbed every single floppy from that room for fear I'd be missing something.
What I couldn't find was software for my computer (I need Windows 98, right?) or a hard case (I think the soft case I found was actually for the overlocker, whoops).
What I guess I am asking is what am I missing for my machine? Did software come with it and where can I find it? I was told it's not registered and am not sure if that makes a difference.
Sorry I am so clueless. I vaguely know how to use the machine as we made my first quilt on it, but that was years ago before she was sick.
I know I'm late replying but I thought I'd reply anyways. I just made one last night with a 4 way stretch jersey. It does roll, but it doesn't look bad. I'm making another with what was labelled "100% mixed fibers" but stretches. I'm assuming it was some sort of knit jersey type. It's not as shiny, but it seems to be working out well.
Just make sure your material stretches. I attempted this with non-stretch quite a while back and it did not work at all.
I think cutting the pieces is generally the most time consuming for any quilt. I started cutting out pieces for a double wedding ring quilt about a month ago, and I got fed up and just put it aside. Good luck with your quilt!
I usually don't wonder outside of the quilting or the clothing sections here on Craftster but during my horrible week I clicked the main image and was just looking for something to distract me. I came across an amazing wall art post and fell in love. See post here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=336331.0
I love the cool gray walls, the simplicity of it, and the pop of the single red heart. Sadly my room is a disgusting gold colour (thanks to my older brother having the room first), and I just do not have the patience to align everything like that. This is what I did come up with instead, and I must say I LOVE it.
A close up of the LOVE:
And a close up of the hearts themselves:
I don't know how many hearts are up there but I would say probably somewhere around 70ish give or take. I just started at the bottom and worked my way up. The bottom hearts are white, next up is a shimmering cream, then light pink, and a darker pink. The LOVE is the darkest pink so it's easily seen, and although doesn't look centered, it is centered with my fish tank below it.
