I belong to a few lists dedicated to machine quilting. Some are mostly for longarmers but they let us short-armers hang around. 🙂 Some are for mid-armers and short-armers. They are all great places to learn about machine quilting. A lot of what they talk about on the longarm lists is helpful to me.
A while back, someone was asking about how to compensate for uneven areas in quilts. Some quilters talked about putting different weight items on parts of the quilt to compensate for sagging in other areas….you know…level out the quilt. Sounds like a smart idea to me, but I’m not sure this is what they meant:
She’s a really pretty cat but is also pretty persnickity. For example: she won’t let you pick her up and hold her if you’re sitting on the sofa or in a regular chair nor can you hold her and walk around with her. She will scratch you to ribbons.
However, she begs to be held like a baby whenever I’m sitting at the computer or sewing machine and will go to sleep in my arms while I try to type or sew. She belongs to Chris but she follows me around like a puppy….all over the house and outside. Wherever I am, you will find Buttons in close proximity.
A few minutes after I moved her from the quilt, I heard stuff hitting the floor. Buttons was in the stack raking all the stuff out on the floor.
Don says cats are tiny little women in miniature fur coats. 😉
