It does. Thank you. My mind is at ease from an experienced rag quilter. I didn't wash it because I don't want to chance the ink running. Even though it is fabric ink. I just put it in the dryer and will probably do it again when I get home.

Love what Prince Eric drew.
Love this, great idea!

Also, my memory is soo bad lately. I saw wonderful things as usual and never got the chance to comment on them. Everything I saw was great!
My phone only shows photos the first time I open the page. If I try to look again later the photos are gone. I can see them on the web, but am usually always on my phone. Its frustrating. I wonder if there is a seetting to change this. It would make quoting easier for me. I need to just comment when I first see something. I will try to keep up.

Oh this is so cute Jennie!!!

My mother's been using a Husqvarna Diamond, but finds it a challenge. You have to remember the exact button sequence to get to your embroidery designs and get them set up. And they aren't really labeled well.

Sooo, today she ordered a Babylock Elissimo. Which means I get the Diamond!! Major upgrade from the Plantinum (and I don't really have any problem remembering what buttons do what) Yay! Of course, I'll have most of my Disney embroidery done by the time I get it.
Congrats on getting a new to you machine! Please post a picture when you get it!

Great job on the quilt! By the way, congrats on over 1/2 way to your down payment goal!

That is so totally adorable!!! Did you have the characters sign the fabric or did you somehow transfer the signatures to the fabric squares? If you did transfer them, how did you do it?

They had to order it as they only had one and someone else had purchased it. I can't wait to get it and play. Luckily the ladies are great and lessons come with each machine you buy. We are keeping the other machine too, plus she has an old singer sewing machine. We are moving all out stuff to a bigger room in her house!
Sounds great! So jealous! How do you find sewing events to go to? I saw there was one in Cleveland back in March. Wish i had known about it then. I would be in heaven.
I know they have show specials so may I ask about approximately how much a 10 needle machine costs? I cannot find a price on the internet, just to get an idea if that is a "wishes bigger than budget" amount. I look on Craigslist all the time! If the question is intrusive, I apologize.

Love the autograph quilt! That is awesome!!

I'm looking to maybe get some animal print fabric & have her make the girls jumpers w/plain Mickey or Minnie head. Then do opposite for my son, plain jon-jon type thimg w/animal print Mickey head. What you think? Maybe giraffe or leopard print & orange?

Thank you all!! I cut out the squares before I left (went in August 2012), used an embroidery hoop to hold the fabric and had them sign the fabric pieces. Bought the batting only last weekend then Had extra fabric for the backing to match. Found the border at Walmart of all places. Lol.

Everyone here inspires me to sew. This is how I relax. I just love looking at everyone's pieces. One of these days I will get an embroidery machine.

The companies are pretty tight with the details on pricing which I found so frustrating. At the expo I went to last month they quoted me $10k for a six needle. I didn't inquire about the 10. They said it included a stand that is $1000 and software that I know I've been quoted $2500 for so who really knows how much just the machine is. They also said it included scissors which I sorta laughed at. I did end up getting a single needle larger hoop machine which they also threw in scissors. And I saved thousands of dollars! I haven't opened the box since I have a dozen pairs of scissors and didn't need 9 more.

Evidently my computer has gone back to not allowing me to quote...so we are working off my feeble memory here...


The only thing I can remember is the autograph quilt! Love it! My family is so tired of seeing autograph quilts they start rolling their eyes when I talk about it! LOL! I have never made a raggy quilt in my life...but the one that D~ made for her new nephew made me want to but with all that cutting... I know my arthritis would not be happy!

When I make my autograph quilts, I use regular cotton woven fabrics and fabric markers. I iron freezer paper to the backs of the squares, and carry a small clipboard for the characters to sign. I throw it all in a plastic baggie or two... One of my favorite embellishments is to add an applique to each square before I go of the character I want to sign each square...

So far I have only made 4...and have enough squares for another 3 or 4...

Genie, which was a barely used floor model, was under 10k. I also got it when Brother was running a sale so I got $2500 in rebate and the shop owner threw in quite a few other things.

I think that sounds like a lovely idea for AK outfits!

I agree that saving is hard work but totally worth it. We paid off our mortgage last year and Genie the embroidery machine was our celebration gift.
