    Re: Does it really take that long?

    My quickest quilts (granted, they are little baby quilts) I have made start to finish in less than a day. And earlier this year I made a large twin quilt top, an double Irish chain, so lots of little...

    Re: Spilled pins

    I made one pin cushion and I bought another on etsy. I like using the pin cushions better than my old method, which was the plastic box the pins came in.

    Re: Uneven quilt top

    Don't worry about it. Cut the batting and backing to fit the larger of each dimensions. You won't see it when the quilt is all done.

    Re: I want more Show and Tells!

    I find it much harder to post a photo on here than say on Facebook or Instagram. I am not very computer-literate so I don't know why it's harder. And I find the results less satisfying, the photos...

    Re: Here's a question...

    I've made a bunch of nine-patches. I sometimes set them straight, sometimes on point.

    I have noticed this stealing problem when visiting a friend in a nursing home. She got several new outfits for her birthday and all the stuff was stolen. We decided that we should've written her...

  15. Re: My quilt is too large. Asking for advice on cutting it down.

    I think your particular quilt lends itself well to being cut off. Go ahead and lose two rows. No problem!
  16. Re: Quilted about a third of the quilt, now I don't like the quilting!

    Do something different, maybe even two different things, so it's 1/3, 1/3, 1/3. Try to keep the density of the quilting consistent. It will all look fine after it goes through the washer and dryer.

    Re: least favorite task

    It's funny how some people's worst things are others' favorite things.

    I do not like the machine quilting, especially ones larger than a baby quilt. And I don't like the spray-basting the three...

    Re: memory quilt ideas

    I'm so sorry for your loss.

    I would think to just make a quilt that you love, love the fabric, love the pattern. You will know that that quilt is special and is dedicated to your son. It doesn't...

    Last week I took a quilt top, backing, and batting to my local long arm quilt lady. I gave her a Warm and Plush, which is a cotton batting that is twice as thick as normal. It looks and feels...

    Re: Giveaway Week 17 May 1st - 8th

    I worked on a Kansas Troubles quilt top for a year, then had a church group hand quilt it, then I bound it. It was about 2 years in all.
