  1. Re: A wealth of good ideas and information!

    I played around with the app and came up with a few designs. Pretty handy for those of us who don't want to spend $ on EQ8.

    Seems to work fine in Chrome but didn't work in IE for me.
  2. Re: All you Pierce Cty, Washington quilters-

    My favorite shop in the Tacoma area is Shibori Dragon. I used to go there whenever I flew out to visit my folks (before they moved). I don't think I've even heard of Fabric Train :/

    Re: MSQ Sale Prices

    Interestingly enough, some stores have tried to go back to this model and it doesn't work. Specifically, JC Penney tried this, and it cost them a lot of business.

  7. Re: How do you keep ruler/template from moving when cutting with rotary cutter?

    One other important part of the technique - keep part of your hand on the ruler and part on the table (opposite side from the edge you're cutting, of course)... that helps keep the template/ruler...

    Kona jelly rolls (deal with coupons)

    Guess what I found at JoAnns today? They've started carrying a small number of Kona cotton half jelly rolls. While their shelf price isn't that great, by the time you stack a 20% off purchases...

    Re: Quilt Cruise or Quilt Trip

    I enjoy the MSQC quilting retreats - they are a lot of fun and excellent value. (Plus you get all kinds of special goodies.) I've been to two of them so far, and am planning to go back again this...

    Re: Braided Twist table runner

    I bet you could do something similar with triangles instead of half-circles...

    I think what bothers me about this template is that the only project is a table runner of customizable length. It's...

    Re: Braided Twist table runner

    I think the hardest part to reverse-engineer would be the end pieces to make the 'braided' look. The rest of it is half-circles and while you'd need -A- template, you wouldn't need their template...

    Re: Design challenge

    I agree with Karen. Some form of paper piecing (either EPP or maybe foundation paper piecing) is appropriate. You're not going to be able to do those angles well with traditional piecing methods.

    Too pretty to use

    So I've been quilting for a few years now, and I've gotten this response several times... most recently, I made some potholders for a friend who just moved, to replace the ones she has which are very...

    Re: Storm at sea

    On the one I made a few years ago, I used a template for the diamonds in a rectangle. You can also use a template for the square in a square sub-blocks.

    To applique before or after?

    I have a quilt top that I will be adding a large focal applique to and then stitching down using raw edge applique straight stitching. It's intended as a wall quilt, so I'm not worried about fraying...

    Re: Murder Mystery 2018 quilt top

    There was a chapter of a murder mystery with each block (and the blocks were clues themselves)... if you completed the block on time, you got an additional clue to whodunit. At the end of the 12...

    It was a block of the month, so a year. ;) But some of those intensive flower blocks took 10+ hours to make.

    Re: Table runner, cups, and bags

    Yup. The downside is you have to finish your project a full month before you want the item to be useable - it takes that long to cure!

    Murder Mystery 2018 quilt top

    So I participated in last year's Murder Mystery quilt, and here is the assembled quilt top. Waaay too many tiny pieces for my tastes, on some of those flowers.

    Table runner, cups, and bags

    Here are some projects I made as Christmas gifts last year. I made a bunch of hanging bags - I enlarged the pattern after the first one. I also made a pinwheel tablerunner out of some Kaffe charm...
