    Re: WIP - 5/24/16 - Last week in May

    I've made many quilts with pieces 1" or smaller. As long as your 1/4" seam is scant and consistent, there should be no problem. Ironing the seams toward the gray strips will make the gray strips...

    Re: I am kind of hyperquilting myself

    Entering my sewing room often distorts my perception of time, and I've learned that about an hour and a half will pass in the time I think I've been in there for 30 minutes. Because of this, I set a...

    Sylvia -, I can't wait to see the pictures of the Cats and Snails.

    gshannon - That turned out wonderfully! It goes beyond simply being a quilted wall hanging. It is truly a piece of art. Please...

    Re: WIP - 5/17/16 - I think I can!

    I started a dahlia quilt, and am finishing the remaining blocks of the scrappy quilt as a leader-ender project. This is the center.

    This is an older, prewashed fat quarter. It looks like breezy sky, but it has small spider webs scattered about. It would be easy to cut a piece the size you need without including any of the...

    Re: curious...

    I agree, there are many ways to skin a cat. The best way is the one that gives you results that please you. When I use pieces that are 3" or larger, I often use the methods that don't require tools....

    Re: Is this too busy?

    Often when we've worked so intimately with a quilt, cutting the pieces and sewing them all together, it becomes difficult to see the quilt as others see it, especially when the blocks are large. We...

    Re: Completed flimsy - Growing Up Odd Quilt

    Beautiful work! Scrappy quilts are my favorites, and I know all the work that goes into them before you begin to sew. That is part of what makes them so special. When I go to quilt shows, my eyes are...

    Re: WIP - 5/10/16 - What happened to Spring?

    You have chosen your colors for the Lotus blocks well. The pale orange as the light contrast makes the blues and greens look even cooler.

    It's rainy and cool today, but at least it is not...

    Re: Stippy Quilt Using Jelly Roll Question

    I am sure that I've seen a jelly roll race quilt with a central panel cut and flipped. The outcome will not be a color gradient like the picture in the original post, but it will be a pleasant...

    I'm making progress on my scrap quilt getting near the halfway mark with the number of blocks that I have to make. The more I make, the faster the process seems to go. I have an idea for a...

    Re: WIP - 5/10/16 - What happened to Spring?

    I paid $2 for a bag of scraps sold during a fundraiser at my local quilt guild meeting. I've had an idea brewing for about two weeks, and I knew just what I wanted to do with these scraps. I've been...

    Ott lights are not supposed to distort the color of fabrics. LEDs and other bulbs that do not distort color are often labeled as natural daylight bulbs. They are really bright if you put them in...

    Re: WIP - 5/10/16 - What happened to Spring?

    What a glorious day! It actually felt like spring here, so I did not take the warm sunshine for granted. I started a new scrap project a couple of days ago, and after reworking a couple of pieces, I...

    I once read that the best cutting height for most people is at the waist. I find that I like to have it a little lower, about at my hips. When I cut sitting down, I use a tall stool so that the table...

    Re: Scraps

    I use everything down to 1/2", so I don't have much to throw out. I once gave my throwaways to a quilter who was making pincushions, but she is not doing that anymore. I don't want to use these tiny...

  23. Re: Setting my stitching and pressing question

    I use the wooden block (called a tailor's clapper) as well. I sew with small pieces, so my blocks have many seams, and the wooden block really makes those seams flat. I used to press my blocks with...
