    Re: Disappearing 9 patch Fabric amounts

    Here is my suggestion: if you have any scrap fabric (even if all the same one), cut out nine 5” squares and make a sample block. First, this will tell you if this is a block you are comfortable...

    Is there a difference?

    I see the terms paper piecing, foundation paper piecing and foundation piecing. Are these all terms for the same thing as the terms seem to be used interchangeably or all they different techniques? ...

    Re: Make a "Bud Bouquet" Quilt with Jenny Doan

    Once I got past the fabric choice I really like this pattern. I tend to like bright colors so this one initially threw me off a bit. But it looks like a nice quick quilt. I found the way she cut...

    Re: Fabric with a School/Teacher print

    I just went into etsy.coM and eBay.com and typed "teacher fabric" and then "school fabric" and a ton of them popped up. Everything from panels to all kinds of fabrics. I often do that to stir my...

    Re: Challenge Quilt

    I would estimate most of the pieces in the skirt are about 6" X 6" - a few bigger and some smaller but it uses fairly large pieces of fabric.

    Re: Rag quilt

    I myself don't use batting but instead put flannel in the middle. Generally I use 100% cotton for front and back and flannel for the middle. I know some folks use flannel for both the middle and...

    Re: Make a "Milestones" Quilt with Jenny Doan

    Re: Jelly rolls

    another trick is to cut each jelly roll in half if your pattern will allow it. That way instead of sewing 40+ inches together you are sewing a shorter length - just doing it twice. Even if you...

    Try dryer sheets - fresh out of the package. Let the iron get almost totally cool and wipe the spot with a dryer sheet. I have found they take almost anything off a warm iron. Including the sticky...

    I have found every time I buy 108" backing it tends to be wonky. Much more so than normal width fabric. As I usually make sure I have plenty of extra length/width it is normally not an issue. I...
