TTMT #2 | I’m Back|12/26/17

Hey – I did it! I recorded my video on time… but the editing and posting were a bit delayed! I do apologize that its 15 minutes [even after cutting a lot of it out] At any rate – it is completed, so that’s always a plus! Grab a snack and sit back, and please feel free to comment constructive tips to help me make my videos better!

Thanks & Happy New Year!!!

  1. Hey welcome back Anita! You have had a lot going on, I loved seeing what you have been working on. I think out of all those quilts my favorites are the Prince quilt and the one with what looked like a dancer. I can’t say enough good things about old metal machines. I have to tell you, keep an eye on craigs list and at goodwill for a Singer 301A for under $100. Straight stitch only machine and I did my first FMQ on that machine, it’s got over 7″ between the needle and the body of the machine, so more room! It’s all metal and easy to maintain, and you can still get parts for it if they break. Also did a lot of quilting on a Kenmore 158.19131 super high shank machine. I had to buy an adapter for the darning/embroidery foot to do FMQ, but it also has nearly 7.5″ to the right of the needle. And it’s very heavy so it doesn’t move around when you are quilting. With the Kenmores what you want to look for is open the top and look for plastic parts. The less plastic, the better it will be and the easier to fix and maintain yourself. Also the nice thing is often they come in a cabinet, so after you get your van you can bring it home in a cabinet and have a lovely large surface to quilt on.

    Good to hear and see you again and Happy New Year to you and your family!

    1. Thank you! The wall hanging is actually a paper piece pattern that I made from a photo of my daughter in a yoga pose. It was her gift last Christmas. I appreciate the info on the machines. I am on a serious search. Happy New Year


  2. Welcome back Queen Anita! I remember your first video; it was not long after I first became a part of the TTMT family. I’m glad you are here.

    We have a lot in common. I’m expecting my first grandchild in a few weeks (a boy) and his first quilt is a PoD. I totally agree with your philosophy that grandparents are there to spoil their grandchildren. My heart goes out to you on the loss of your granddaughter. Totally heartbreaking.

    Your quilts are beautiful! I’m looking forward to seeing more of what you do!

    A very happy and meaningful Kwanzaa to you and yours!

  3. Welcome back, beautiful lady!

    Your gallery wall is gorgeous! 💜

    I’ve enjoyed seeing your gorgeous gallery wall and, even better, that sweet grandson of yours. I love seeing all his photos with his gorgeous momma on your social media. ❤️

    It has been a joy to watch your quilting evolution. We’re not even going to talk about the feels I have when I see your Prince quilt. My grandmother did the wrap around binding, but I’ve had no experience with it myself.

    FMQ! I have a Juki TL1020Q and I looove it. I saved up for it and it was worth it. It’s what I’ve quilted all my quilts on for the last few years. Brother also makes a really good straight stitch machine. I hope you find the right one for you!

    Your. House. Is. Gorgeous. Thank you for the back story on being Queen!

    1. I’m blushing! Thank you for the compliments on the gallery wall. You will be pleased that I show it in a bit more detail on this week’s ttmt that I just posted. I’m a bit smitten with that baby! lol I’m glad his mom changed her mind about sharing his pictures on social media!

      It still doesn’t feel like it’s just under 2 years that I’ve been quilting. Things have evolved quickly! The wrap around binding was different, but not at all complicated. I’m sure I will use that technique again.

      Thank you for the machine info – I hope to purchase one as a gift to myself for my quiltiversary in a few months.

      We’ve been in the Castle for almost 23 years – time passes so fast!
