    Re: Question for longarmers

    Dont sew them, just pin some cloth to each side for your clamps. The pins will be out away from the sewing area, and the added fabric will keep your clamps safely away too!

    Getting the hang of ruler work

    Ruler work is a slow process, and hopefully I will get more speedy with practice. This took way too long.

    Re: Strings?!@

    Thank you everyone for the suggestions. I have gotten out my compass and am making these with my own pattern.

    Re: Strings?!@

    This would work if I had width of fabric for many pieces. Some may be 5 inches long by an inch.

    Re: Nylon Thread

    I have heard that nylon thread will stretch if it is in the bottom portion of the stitch and will cause problems. Make a small quilt sandwich and see if it can be successful.

    I used to be a non-starch fan. And realized as my iron aged, starch really helps puff the threads in the fabric and removes wrinkles. Saves me money on purchasing a new iron. So I start a project...

    Poll: What do you like best

    These blocks are turning out busy, but I like the scrappy vintage feel. Should they have scrappy sashing? Should I incorporate hsts in the sashing? No sashing? or something else?

    Re: Lightweight solution?

    Skip the batting all together, make it an old fashioned summer quilt with no batting at all. Or you can overlock all seams and just make her a top summer coverlet to put on the bed, with no weight.
