Patchwork & Quilting ... Welcome to the Darkside / Feets!
« on: September 03, 2020, 19:30:02 PM »
Sorry to be a pain, ladies. Are any of these a quarter inch foot or a piecing foot or any of the feets you told me to get for quilting?

I touched on this in the Today thread but I don't want to risk another digital leg-slapping so I'll ask about it here.

Has anyone used these:

Jaybird Sidekick Quilting Ruler

Or perhaps indeed any of this style of ruler. I get the feeling they're all made with a specific block pattern or element shape in mind with the idea that using a particular ruler creates elements that go together to form one complete block?

Have I got that right? Your advice would be most welcome and gratefully received.


Today... One thread per day / Tuesday 1st September

Good morning,

Just got up for work and had to stick the heating on. Better!

Tuesday and this week's work is done. YouTube and junk food today at work I think. Red sky on the horizon, could be wet weather ahead methinks.

Have a lovely day wherever you are and whatever you're doing today.

Hi, I'm new... / Hello from Glasgow
« on: July 27, 2020, 15:00:48 PM »
Hello there, from a very rainy Glasgow.

My name is William. I've been into sewing on and off since I took it up as a hobby in my 20's. I do furniture restoration as well.

I got a call from my sister a while ago saying that, due to ill health, she was having to give up her little sewing business. It was nothing major; just a little side interest making things she could sell at car boot sales and craft fairs. She asked me if I wanted my machine back and it was only then I remembered I had given her mine ages ago. So, being a big brother, I did what big brothers do and took my machine back and made off with about ten grands worth of fabric for absolutely nothing. I feel a bit guilty because some of it goes for £30 per metre.

Anyway; I'm more into decorative stuff and upholstery rather than clothes and I admit I'm a bit of a lurker so I'll no doubt benefit way more from your posts than you will from mine. If this introduction goes for much it should demonstrate what I mean.

Thanks a lot,
