    Re: layer cake FMQ sampler quilt

    What a great idea! And I've got to say there is no better practice than just diving into a real quilt. I used to practice a lot on muslin squares (and still warm up on them) but there is just...

    Re: How Would You Quilt This Top?

    I might be the lone vote here but I think a simple grid design with a lightweight thread might be effective. The piecing is magnificent and that is what should shine.

    Re: Embroidery machine

    It is interesting you say this Terry, about not feeling as creative as when you FMQ. I don't have an embroidery machine and that is the main reason why. While I see beautiful things created with an...

    Re: Steam from Irons

    Funny. What you refer to as "steam into submission" I refer to as persuasive pressing.

    I do use steam but press rather than iron as Bubby mentions.

  20. Re: How do you presssesms openwithout burning your fingers?

    I am a big fan of the Strip sticks too. Clover also has a couple handy tools, the Iron Finger and a Precision Stiletto. They are both heat resistant and you can use them to seams open.

    I have always wanted to finish all my own quilts. There have been a handful I've sent out. Those were large quilts and/or for a special occasion and I wanted them to be nicer than I could do them. I...
