  1. Re: Sending Out a Quilt Top to be Finished or DIY?

    I started off hand-tying quilts, then graduated to FMQ when Angela Walters did her first FMQ-along. Now, I'm renting time on a longarm at a local quilt shop and looking at getting my own longarm...

  3. Re: Uber or other transportation from Cameron to KC airport

    I have ridden with Rhetta before and would recommend her.
  4. Re: Can I make Jenny's Windmill block with fat quarters?

    Do be aware that the pattern is slightly off for that particular block. They taught the pattern at the retreat one year, and gave out the corrections. Unfortunately, I do not remember what those...

    Re: Question for longarmers

    That seems like a reasonable solution to me. I would sew the extra strips in the same direction as your main backing seam. Make sure you have enough of your backing to not require side-seams. ...

    Re: What is taboo

    Metallics are fine to use. I will caution that metallic ink wears off the fabric over time, so if you plan to make something that will be washed often, you may not want to use a lot of metallic...
  7. Re: Missouri* tote pattern - sturdy and simple for Sashiko

    ShabbyFabrics has a nice 3 (or was it 4?) FQ tote bag tutorial. I've made it several times and it goes together rather quickly.

  8. Re: Need help - how to fix warped cutting mat? (and a warning!)

    My mom warped her cutting mat by using an iron on top of it (with a pressing mat)... she wound up just having to buy a new cutting mat.
  9. Re: Shipping a quilt internationally question

    That is good to know. Unfortuantely, I don't know of any adult-sized quilt that you can make for under $45 worth of fabric! Even clearance fabric is more expensive than that! Still, my friend...
  10. Re: Handi-Quilter Long Arm Retreat in the Summer?

    You could also contact Cindy at MSQC since she runs the retreats.
  11. Shipping a quilt internationally question

    I am debating making and sending a quilt as a gift to a friend in Canada. Unfortunately, she is having serious financial difficulties, and if I send her anything that gets custom fees added to it,...

    Re: Pinked Edges.....Grrrr

    Edges are pinked to reduce unraveling. Certain fabrics are more prone than others, but cotton does still unravel. I have some 1.5" strips that were not pinked, and they unravel something awful.

    Re: Rise in cotton batting prices

    Most local quilt stores near me charge around $12-14 (or $13-15 for digital) for a yard of fabric. Online shops tend to be about $11-12 a yard for cotton prints. Don't get me wrong, I love it when...

    Re: Lightweight solution?

    Hum... a flannel backing and no batting might be a good way to go. Might make the quilt extra soft, too. I'll have to mull that one over. Thanks for all your suggestions!

    Lightweight solution?

    I have a bit of a conundrum that I hope you guys can help with.

    I have a great aunt who is a polio survivor and as such she doesn't have much strength in her limbs. My mom and I made her a quilt...
  19. Re: Beta testers needed for new MSQC Shipping program

    I would actually be tempted by the $50 in town credit. My mom and I do a retreat yearly. Is that actually part of the beta test now or just a hypothetical?
  20. Re: Anyone use something besides batting to quilt with?

    Can you quilt without batting? My mom and I made a quilt for my great aunt but the cotton batting we used made it too heavy for her to manipulate. My mom thinks we can 'quilt' a new quilt (using...

    Re: - Written patterns or not

    I like cutting out all the pieces because then I can chain piece. I have learned to make a test block or 3 before I do all the cutting; though.
