    Re: Thursday with Friday on the way

    We are moving. Health issues have pushed us to move closer to our son. So since we need to downsize, I have been working in the sewing room first. I had no idea there was so much stuff in the closet....

    Re: Planning ahead?

    We went on long RV trips and I usually had a quilt in mind so packed a sweater box with the colors I needed. If it was a scrap quilt I packed by strip size. I used a lot of Bonnie Hunters patterns. ...

    Re: Is it Spring yet?

    Retirement was hard at first. DH missed having people to talk to as well as the work itself. Now he is involved in all sorts of hobbies as well as senior golf. I managed that first year by getting a...

    I have been sewing for 70 years. The tutorials and cutting tools available now are amazing. I feel like all I do is copy but using my own ideas for color and combining patterns make each quilt...

    At Quiltville.com Bonnie suggests using the card key from a motel and double sticky removable tape to make your 1/4" seam mark. She says to sew two 2.5" blocks together, press and measure. It should...

    Re: Pellon fusible fleece

    I just bought pellon fusible fleece to make a pouch to hold a kindle. I think it is more for crafty things rather then a quilt.

    Re: Giveaway Week 26 Jul 17th - 24th

    My grown DGS called and asked if I had an embroidery machine. He wanted to make a pillow for a gift for his friend. I explained where to find designs on the Internet. He called again and asked to...
  16. Re: Understanding seam allowance-from a mechanical engineering perspective (new guy)

    My DH is an engineer also. My hands are damaged by RA and often he cuts fabric for me. I had to smile all through this thread. His issue is the movement of fabric as opposed to wood and metal.

    Re: A Kindle Cover

    That looks great. We need one of those. My DH was carrying his in his pocket and it caused enough damage that he had to buy a new one. You did a good job.

    My daughter in law washed and dried one of my first quilts so much that the hand quilted borders began to break. It definitely weakened the thread. I don't wash mine real often but she was doing it...
