Dreams Mini-Quilt from Becca's Crazy Projects

Several years ago I used an embroidered alphabet from Urban Threads Embroidery to create a min-quilt for a friend. We share a dark view of the world and joke that now that we are old ladies (neither claims to be a lady, to be sure) all our dreams are dead. I wanted to make sure she remembered me always so I made her a mini-quilt similar to what you see above.
She asked me to make another one for another friend of hers and I said yes. I used the alphabet to recreate the design because I didn't know ...

Charity Quilting from Becca's Crazy Projects

Blogger has made some changes to the blog drafting tool and I'm trying to give it a go before it becomes the standard. It appears the intent was to make the tool easier to use for those writing their posts on mobile devices. I draft my posts using my desktop computer. I can type faster, pull content faster, and generally get from idea to blog post faster on my desktop than I can with my mobile device. I've been blogging either with a desktop of laptop for almost seven years. Change is hard. I just wish the new ...

Dream Big from Becca's Crazy Projects

Part 2

Last week I shared the first part of my Dream Big panel. Above, the order I used for the thread changes. I love that I have so many colors of So Fine! from Superior Threads. Options are good.
As I worked each petal I would decide what to do with the next. I looked at panels quilted by other people and realized I really went middle-of-the-road with the quilting. So many others did some pretty intense quilting. My quilting is light in comparison to some. 
I worked on it for several hours but I had to quit for ...

Juki from Polka Dots and Butterflies

This is Juki TL-18QVP.  She is new and she is all mine. I have sewn on a Singer Patchwork for the last several years.  Joining the guild and taking my first workshops showed me I needed a better machine.  I searched for about 6 months, trying out machines, talking to people, researching.  I finally settled on what I wanted most in a new machine - a larger throat space and the ability to do free motion quilting (FMQ).  This machine does all that.  She sews like butter and my FMQ has improved tremendously.  I love her.

Here are some example of ...

Stays Square from machinequilter

Reason number 5: I love machine quilting frames because they keep your quilt nice and flat and square. I could have called this post beginning as you mean to go on. Basically, if you quilt it flat and square it stays flat and square. If you wrestle a quilt under the arm of the sewing machine, it bothers more than your neck and shoulder muscles. Yanking and pulling the quilt sandwich every which way under the arm of the machine can cause distortion.
