    Fortunately, I have a supply of Insulbright from another project that I've been using, so my hands are safe!

    OMG... I have all these little 12 inch squares that I'm practicing on. We are moving across the countty this year and now ...forget the bubble wrap...quilted squares between the dishes.
    Thank you.

    Lmao. Well you just use a whole cloth and it will look like an atomic bomb went off.

    You could do suares this way, sew together the squares after quilting and have a scrappy quilt. Easy process for small scraps.

    My daughter got a new machine and has been doing that to practice too. Me...I just trudge along and start a project believing that it will be okey. I practice as I go.

    started a topic An AHA moment

    An AHA moment

    I hate wasting fabric and I have a gzillion scraps. I'm taking a FMQ class at my LQS and had been making practice quilt sandwiches - wasting fabric AND batting because what on earth do I do with all those sandwiches? Well, I had an AHA moment when I decided to use scraps to make scrappy potholders and practice my FMQ. Really, nobody sees them but me! I now have a LOT of potholders! No waste and I actually end up with something useful.
Working...
