    I can thankfully say there was no blood on the fabric! I would have really been cursing if there was!

    Olympic sewing moment

    For the first time ever, I sewed through my fingernail and ripped a quarter of it up from the nail bed. Though terribly painful and quite an ugly injury, I didnít cry or scream or curse, and my first...

    Re: Fat quarters. What are they good for?

    Great suggestions! I sometimes get one dimensional with my quilting. I know there are so many ways to cut fabric, and make it work in many patterns. Jenny has spoiled me with these tutorials and the...

    Re: Easy/fast quilt pattern

    Everyone is suggesting such nice patterns that would take me a month, because I get distracted. I was over here like, “Sew ten inch precuts together.”

    Re: how amny blocks make a king size quilt

    Iím currently...

    Re: Do you report your untaxed internet purchases?

    It's called a consumer use tax and it's supposed to be on the honor system, if a company, such as Amazon, isn't in the know on your state tax laws. My fiscally irresponsible state started...

    Re: Ever have premonitions?

    Only store what you will use. Don't buy 6 cases of corn if you don't usually eat corn. I wasted about 80 cans of food doing that once. Never again. And for the love of God, don't run out and buy...

    Re: wash pre cuts?

    I've tried washing 10" precuts, for an experiment. I don't recommend it, mainly because it's a pain and not worth your time. This is coming from a gal that is emphatic about washing yardage on the...
  15. Wavy borders...first time for everything, I guess.

    Having made about a dozen quilts, my last one had wavy borders. It's a first for me. I measured and took the averages, pinned well, squared it up, and did everything right. The quilt top looked...

  21. Does M* put Christmas fabrics on sale, post-Christmas?

    Well, my question is in the title. I was curious if M* deeply discounts holiday fabrics, like big box stores do with holiday decorations, after Christmas. I'm guessing no, but I thought I might ask.
