    Re: Happy quilting mistakes

    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...

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

    This is exactly what my Mom used to tell us :) BTW there were no problems.
  25. 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.
