    Re: Polyester fleece blanket batting?

    When I was a kid, we used sheets, blankets, old clothes, whatever was available. Back then the sheets were cotton.

    Re: satin binding - make or pre-made?

    Agree.

    But, I have never heard of a rag quilt having binding. Why not rag the edges? That's what I did for a rag quilt.

    Re: Quilting

    Re: White Fabric dilemma

    I was told a long time ago in a quilting/piecing class, that when you are piecing with white fabric and a dark color and the seams have to go towards the light fabric, that the dark fabric should be...

    I love looking at all the "art" photos that you post.

    I noticed that you ended each set today with "the end". I hope it's not the end. You get a lot of views on each one so a lot of people...

    Re: Pineapple quilt

    Do you have a longarm or planning on quilting on a domestic machine?

    Before I got my longarm, I quilted a queen size quilt on my machine that had a 7" throat space. I did a stitch in the ditch on...

    Re: Kids 👶

    That brings back sweet memories of my two boys! I can remember covering the floor with plastic or newspapers and placing the highchair in the middle then letting them feed themselves.

    Re: Monday Chalk Art/Sky Art/Flower Art 🖼

    Awesome!

    Wonder how old David Zinn is? To be able to draw like that on sidewalks, he would be spending a lot of time on his knees. I know my knees could not handle it!

    I would make a scrappy disappearing 9 patch. Pick a fabric that goes well with all the others and use it for the center square. Remember, the squares can be any size just as long as they are all...

    Re: Lightweight solution?

    I like the idea of no batting and serging the seams rather than just piecing that way it can withstand multiple washings.

    A while back I made a hexagon quilt and did not want to do any "Y" seams. So I stuck a triangle ruler on top of my hexagon and scooted it enough over to include a 1/4" seam allowance. I have the...
