The Big Move by [email protected]
I will not be posting for a while because I am moving within the city of Pocatello, Idaho, 1 of next month. Just didn't want you all to be concerned about what happened to me. Maybe we should all move every 5 years, just so we can get rid of all the junk we accumulate. Just call me...

Emerald Waves Quilt by [email protected]

Cannot get backing off Printed Treasures Paper by tnhelen
I have done some quilt labels on Printed Treasures transfer paper that was run through my inkjet printer. The problem is that the backing will not peel off! It's making quite the mess. Any secrets to getting it off easier? Thanks. Helen

Mega Quilter grinding noise by Debbie Dempsky
I've had my Mega Quilter for about 4 years. Some days I love it. Some days I wonder what it would look like if I threw it out the second floor of my house and had it land at the bottom of the pool. Last week it suddenly started to make a horrible grinding noise. I ran it long enough for my...

Quilted jacket by Brian[_3_]
Several years ago I made myself a quilted jacket (https://www.flickr.com/photos/brian0908/, album = quilted jacket). I took the pictures with my phone, so they are not "great." Even where I live, Tucson, AZ, it gets cold enough where I need to wear this relatively heavy jacket some of the...
