    We got a brief warming spell and the daffodils are all blooming here. Almost a month early. Quilt wise I just finished the quilting on the Jewel Box. I need to do the finishing work of making and...

    Looking for M* wolf kit

    Late last fall M* had as one of their weekly specials a wolf quilt kit. It had a digital wolf panel (I think it was two wolves) surrounded by beautiful quarter square log cabin blocks made with...

    Re: In the ditch 9 patch, sortta

    Your quilt, your rules. Here are some options rather than SITD all four sides of the 2.5" squares

    Check the spacing specified on your batting. I am sure it is more than 2.5" inches. So leave the...

    Re: In the ditch 9 patch, sortta

    Did your sewing machine come with an edge joining foot? It may be called an overcast foot but it has a ridge running right down the middle. It will look something like this

    Re: WiP Feb 8 - 14, 2019

    Thanks for thinking of me. The Crystals kit is definitely me. Sadly I did order this pre cut kit from Hoffman several years ago. The kit is laser cut and it is cut incorrectly. It literally cuts the...

    I am just over half way through the quilting on the MJ Kinsman Birthstone series quilt. I am doing very simple stitch in the ditch quilting along the gem facet lines, so the gem will show and not the...

    Re: Need Advice...

    I think the answer depends on how much wear and tear you expect the quilt to receive. Is the quilt going to be washed weekly, monthly, or once a year? Once a year, tie a hands width apart. Once a...
  11. Re: How do you keep ruler/template from moving when cutting with rotary cutter?

    Here is a picture showing how translucent the 3M non slip bath tape is when applied to a ruler. I placed the ruler over a magazine so you can see how much of the print is obscured. I also put a...
  12. Re: How do you keep ruler/template from moving when cutting with rotary cutter?

    I use a clear (translucent) non slip bath tape. I purchased the 1" x 60' (yes feet not inches) roll for $16 at Koffler. Works much better than Invisigrip, sand paper dots, or any other quilting non...

    Re: Questions about thread weight and type

    One word of advice if using 40 wt polyester for FMQ is new to you. The 40 wt really doesn't stay knotted like the 50 wt does. So pick and practice what knotting technique you are going to use on a...

    Re: Questions about thread weight and type

    Yes you can mix thread types and thread weights. So you can use a 40 wt poly on top and a 50 wt cotton in the bobbin.

    For most machines (check your manual) the thickest weight thread you can use...

    Re: Two sided dilemma

    Is there any chance that the inner black border on the front side is overlapping the pieced border on the back side? If so you could walking foot quilt around that border joining the two sides. Then...

    Re: WiP Feb 1 - 7, 2019

    On Wednesday I took a thread painting class at my local quilt shop. I learned a lot, but the most important thing I learned is that I do not enjoy thread painting. This is a very valuable thing to...

    Re: Applique

    Absolutely yes, sewing and turning inside outside will work for the base sole of the flip flop. It is a nice smooth easy shape to turn inside out.

    Can't wait to see your pictures of such a fun...

    The only thing you have to fear is fear itself. It is just thread and fabric. There is no possible way to ruin it. It will be charmingly and uniquely you.

    Re: Tessalla quilted

    It is certainly easier to do consistent FMQ designs if they are based on the space between your two hands. With practice you can grow beyond this limitation. On the four petal flowers in the large...

    This is the Tessalla pattern by Needle In A Hayes Stack. I used the Gelto Ombre jelly roll by Maywood Studio. All the beautiful color shading comes from the ombre shading in the jellyroll. I choose...

    I grieve with you for the loss of a beloved companion. I pray that John has help to get through this difficult time. Depression is a physical condition, not a mental choice.
