1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Got a new machine!!! on: January 28, 2008 01:13:53 PM
I decided it was time for me to upgrade to a hardcore sewing machine. I went with the Viking Sapphire 870. This is a beautiful machine and so far works awesome. I haven't done any quilting with it yet, I don't have my walking foot - but I have been doing some piecing. I plan on getting an extension table and a lot more accessories.

 The sensor system takes some getting used to, especially when you are changing fabrics or projects quickly. But here are some pics I took:

I posted this in the doll/plaything forum too - but it is also a quilt:

I made this wallhanging for my friend SewPixie (aka Becca). I wanted to test using photo fabric paper.

5  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Husqvarna Viking Sapphire 870 on: January 04, 2008 02:34:24 PM
I would like to know if anyone is currently using this machine for quilting. I am heavily considering it but there are not too many reviews on it right now. If people have any pros/cons that would be awesome. Thanks!
6  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / My quilt for my grandmother on: December 20, 2007 06:16:33 PM
My grandmother quilts and I just started quilting. She will never have a quilt professionally done because of the price, well I had this one done - just for her.

7  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Quilt Labels??? on: December 20, 2007 10:33:08 AM
I bought a yard of fabric quilt labels to use on my quilts. But I don't know the best method to writing on them and attaching them to my quilt. I think I remember the lady saying something about using freezer paper. Does anyone have any input on how I should make these labels???
8  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Quilt as you go Wallhangings on: December 17, 2007 07:05:26 AM
These are two wallhanging/table runners that I made for Christmas gifts. I used 5 fat quarters for both of them, then I purchased the backing fabric, and a fat quarter for each to be the focal point fabric.

They were really easy to make, each one took me probably one evening. Since you quilt as you go it makes it simple:

9  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Help with doll clothes! on: December 14, 2007 07:53:12 AM
I have recently adopted a Blythe doll, and I am using the Skipper patterns to make her clothes. I am having the hardest times with sleeves. I want to make her a coat, but I can't seem to get the sleeves onto the body of the coat. I tried hand-stitching them on - but it looks HORRIBLE. Does anyone have any suggestions?

10  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Sewing on Paper on: May 08, 2005 03:48:58 AM
I've seen many projects where they sew on paper - however I'm having some difficulties with this. I'm trying to sew on cardstock, and my machine doesn't really want to pick it up (it's a pretty old machine). Does anyone have any tips? Would I be better off getting a small cheap sewing machine for the task?
