Julie, I'd like to do a quilt square this year (promise I won't wait until the last minute and let you down!!). I have 2 very good quilt stores within 20 minutes of my house and I'm already signed up for some classes in October at one of them. I also plan on buying a sewing machine and have looked at several lines. Does anyone here have a Bernina? Are they worth the cost!!???? Talk about sticker shock when I looked at sewing machines!!

Julie, do you mind resending the quilt tutorial (just part 1)- I have part 2 and the finished quilt square picture. My hard drive crashed a couple of months ago and some of my files were lost and that was one of them. Thanks!!

Sure---I'll send the tutorial.

Sewing machines? Oh good lord---I have been through months and months and months of searching for just the right sewing machine! The problem is way too many brands,alot made in China but advertised as made in Sweden,bells and whistles galore.
Bernina is a very very good quality machine,but the prices certainly reflect "caviar taste". I wanted a Bernina but the one I wanted cost between 10,000.00-12,000.00 and I wasn't interested in a lower end machine. It really varies on what you want to be able to do with it. If you just sew a little,I wouldn't think you would get your money out of it to be honest---although---if I had the money,I'd have one here!
I'm getting a BabyLock machine.A new brand for me(I've always had Singers,but current Singers are made cheaply and do not last) in my opinion.(I have had 3 in the last year)

If you start looking at machines---look at Bernina but make sure you are going to sew quite a bit to make it cost effective and remember that anything extra is a high premium price add on...even later

Look at Viking--but stay with the very high end models and make sure they are made in Sweden-not China. Reviews of the China made ones scared me off.

Then I'd look at Baby Lock,Pfaff,Janome,and Brother..

I wish you luck with picking out your new machine,and not as much analyzing as I do

The finished quilt this year,by way of voting on the front page(did you vote?) will be donated to HRI.

We have made 3 quilts so far---Quilt 1 was donated to HRI
Quilt 2 was donated to HRI
Quilt 3 was donated to Havanese Fancier's of Canada--Rescue

If we have enough blocks for 2 quilts we will donate that one as well (it'll have to be discussed as we aren't there yet) but I'd like to see it sold to off set the money Melissa pays out of pocket to run the forum.

Anyone wanting to see the little tutorial I put together a few years ago (it is mostly pictures) please pm me your email address.

It is in 2 parts and is a large file because it is mostly pictures.
It shows the fusible technique I taught to Girl Scouts.
Very easy.

Oh dear, I was going to pm this to Julie, but I can't figure out how to do an attachment with a private message, so I'll just put it out there...

Julie, I attempted a drawing of my idea. (It's a little tilted from my scanning.) I was trying to stay simple since this will be my first attempt at hand sewing. Any suggestions? (I'll pm you with my e-mail address to get the tutorial)

Hooo-Ray Jill!!!! You are going to be kicking all of our butts if you already are drawing ideas! Yikes! The pressure is on already!

The drawing it terrific! I'm so glad we're getting new quilters added every year!
