  4. Re: Problems getting my jelly roll rug to sew right, please advice if you can give some advice

    The pattern recommends and I used a size 90/14 jeans needle since it is going through such thickness. I also would not increase pressure foot but decrease the pressure so it would feed easier...
  5. Re: New 2 1/2" Hexi Template - maybe a methods improvement

    Re: Tablerunner size questions

    Since tables vary so much, I would just pick a pattern and not worry about the size so much. The Triangle Frenzy patterns are beautiful, easy to construct, and very dramatic looking (aka looks more...

    I would just store those little triangles uncut until I had a pattern or idea on how to use them. Then and only then would I cut them. And if you never got inspired or found a way to use them in a...

    Re: Polyester fleece blanket batting?

    I think it is a great idea for a first quilt to learn cutting and re-sewing. As for the fleece - I think all fleece is polyester and it does not shrink. It can be a challenge to work with as it is...
