    Re: Opinions please?

    The floral border does need a dark grey binding. What I would do is look in my stash for a solid grey fabric, or buy about a half-yard of solid grey fabric, and use it as a regular binding, not cut...

    Re: Just a few days away from the Craft Fair

    I hope someone will answer these questions about pricing baby quilts at craft fairs. I've tried to sell "toddler size" quilts (larger than baby size) at four craft sales so far, but haven't sold a...

    Re: Nylon Thread

    This thread is pre-wound on bobbins. It is not invisible. I unwound a piece of it and it is grey when placed on a white surface. I don't think it would become invisible when sewn, unless it was sewn...

    Re: Nylon Thread

    Oldmanquilts, Thank you for the link to a very informative article. I read on it that one of the sizes of nylon thread is Size 33. The box of bobbins does say 33 in large numbers, so that is probably...

    Nylon Thread

    I have acquired a box of pre-wound bobbins that are filled with nylon thread. Have any of you used nylon thread to quilt with? If you have, how did you like it? Does anyone recommend using it? All...

    I wonder why it wasn't called just a 15" square ruler?

    Re: Boarders

    Claudiaj, did this answer help you understand the problem? If not, please say so, and maybe someone else can answer it differently. Maybe it would help if we say, "When you measure 4" from the top,...

    Re: Boarders

    Claudiaj, When you measure 4” from the top and bottom, you are not measuring the length. You are measuring the width. That would be for your top and bottom borders. To measure for the length,...

    Re: Venting, do you think I was out of line

    jjkaiser, if Megan's only reason for not having the shower at her house is her dog, why don't you ask her if she can take the dog to a kennel during the time of the shower, or have someone else keep...
  12. Re: Another shipping story, another customer disappointed, another customer who loves MSQC

    NativeTexan, the way to view something better without it going into your cart, is to hover and then click on the text below the item. Don't let your cursor be over the item itself, because it will...

    Re: jelly roll race size

    Deegles, you can get the same final measurement, 40 x 80, a lot easier by not sewing them as a “jelly roll race” that would require sewing them end-to-end and then doing a lot of cutting. Instead,...
  15. Re: Yet another Flower Power stash buster, done and dusted!

    I don't think this quilt is ugly! I've seen a lot of quilts on this site that are gaudier that this. I bought the same fabric (minus the green border) at Big Lots a few years ago, made a child's...

    Additional info: The "Diamond Fence Rail" quilt has diamonds but not the horizontal sashes that I mentioned. There's a "Diamond Dash" quilt that has diamonds and horizontal sashes. Both patterns...

    Re: Pattern for Floral jelly rolls

    I would make a Fence Rail. It's a pattern that's been around for a long time, but I couldn't find a tutorial on MSQC for it. I did find a tutorial for a Diamond Fence Rail. If you omit the diamonds...

    Laurie B, when you selected FEDEx Express shipping for $7, didn't that mean in addition to the regular $5 charge for shipping? So the total charge for shipping was $12?

    Re: Iron recommendation

    I’ve had a Rowenta for 10 or 15 years or longer. I really like it because it’s the only iron I’ve ever had that did not leak, and I’ve had many brands over the years. It’s the model that stores the...
