11  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Brick pattern memory quilt on: July 23, 2009 07:21:00 PM
I know this was posted a few weeks ago, but I just wanted to say that this quilt is lovely, seems like it could be a wonderful way to, in some small way, comfort your family.  What was their response? The solid colored bars remind me of the awards bars on soliders'/Marines' uniforms.

Really nicely designed!

I like the quilting too! Can I ask why you decided to do wavy lines instead of stitching along the piecing or another design?  And did you mark the lines first?

Just asking I've been trying different quilting styles and am trying to understand how they work with the quilt piecing and if it works better to mark or not mark, etc and was hoping to draw on your wisdom and that of the collective Craftster.  Wink

Ditto on the OMG. She, ok, and the dress too, is adorable.  Wink

Aha, that makes sense!  Thank you to you both!
15  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Darning foot question on: March 07, 2009 01:02:30 PM
Pardon what may be a silly question, but:

Can anyone help me understand why it's suggested to use a darning foot to do free motion quilting?

How is using a darning foot from using a regular or open-toe foot with your feed dogs down?  Or from just sewing without a presser foot at all (but with the presser foot lever down)?

Just to add to the Walking Foot love:  I had hesitated about buying one b/c I thought installing it might be too complicated and make me want to forget about the whole quilting thing.  But it wasn't!  I got a walking foot online for my super basic, low budget sewing machine and I just screwed it on and slipped the forked part over the other screw thingy that sticks out and off I went.  So for any beginners like me hesitating about investing in one, don't!  Smiley

Love them both--so vibrant.  And cats are always so...helpful....with sewing projects.

I've used this Laura Gunn tutorial for "slipcovers" to make some old milk crates semi-appropriate for living room use.  Pretty quick/easy.

Adorable!  Now all you need is a sailor dress for yourself!  Perhaps something even more, ahem, alluring?  Wink
