1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Husqvarna Designer 1 (with floppy drive) on: January 18, 2014 04:42:51 PM
Hello ladies and gents,

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.

Thanks in advance!

That's adorable! The more people post things from that book, the more I feel the need to buy it. I love the material you used btw.

Like nearly everyone says, it happens when you stop trying. So as hard as it is to just sit and relax, sometimes that's your best bet. I wish you the best of luck though!

And that bag is amazing!

Could this be do without a lining or would it somehow mess with the pattern?

It's beautiful by the way and you did a wonderful job!

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!

Thanks for the wonderful comments all!

These are wonderful, and really impressive.

Those are freaking adorable! Do the crayons fall out of the totes that have them on the outside or are they fitted enough that they stay?

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: https://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.

C&C welcome.

It was only something silly like 520 squares, so it really wasn't that bad. Plus I did it in layers, so I think cutting was the most time consuming. After that, it's smooth sailing.

Thanks for the nice comments (on both the quilt and Ginger)!
