    Re: Bias Question

    I'm sorry I don't have a name for the quilt. I was browsing online and found it on a website with bright colored quilts. I figured I'd just make half square triangle blocks that measure 9 inches...

    Does anyone have this pattern? I found it on pinterest, but Moda Bake Shop doesn't have it anymore. I can probably make it without a pattern, but it would be nice to know instead of guess...

    I'm thinking of buying a new machine with a stitch regulator. I've been quilting on my Brother, but my stitches are never even.

    You could place all the embroidered blocks in the center of the quilt, and then the pieced blocks around them. Or Pieced blocks in the center with embroidered blocks as the borders. You could also...

    Re: Thread Color

    Thank you! I was afraid the wrong thread colors would show up on the wrong sides, but if you can do it I'll keep trying until I get the tension right.

    Thread Color

    I'm making a gift quilt for my niece, and she chose the colors of the fabrics. She wanted a black background on top, but she wanted the back of the quilt to be white. If I quilt with grey thread it...

    Re: Tuffet Buttons

    I'd like a covered button, to match the fabric in the tuffet. When I looked for regular buttons though, I couldn't find any larger than 21/2 inches.

    Tuffet Buttons

    I made a tuffet and used the 2 1/2 inch button the pattern calls for. It didn't work. The inner circle of the strips of fabric is now stretching out from under the button! Any idea on why this is...

    I'm making a baby quilt for my niece who's expecting...and I'm wondering if raw edge applique will hold up to lots of washings? Would needle turn be better do you think?

    Tuffet Question

    I'm making a tuffet and would rather not buy a staple gun (since I probably won't ever use it again). Any idea if thumbtacks would hold instead of staples? Or does anyone have other ideas? Thanks!

    Choosing backing fabric

    I found a set of fabric that I just love, but Missouri Star doesn't sell the yardage, just the precuts. What do you all do for backing when you can't match it to the front of the quilt? I may be too...

    Has anyone ever used leftover layercake squares for binding? The pattern I'm making is going to have so many unused, I'd have enough for the binding. I'm just not sure if I want that many seams in...
  23. Re: Ideas for passing the time while driving long distances
