    Re: It's Saturday! :)

    It is a rainy day in SW Pennsylvania so the fall festival has been put on hold for today, maybe we will go tomorrow. Instead we will visit the two local quilt shops and perhaps wander an antique mall...
  4. Re: Don't forget it's Breast Cancer Awareness month

    I had one last Friday and it didn't seem quite as uncomfortable as in the past. Maybe they have improved the methods.

    Thanks for this, I had not seen it. I bought her acrylic templates, I hope they are the correct size and shape. If they don't match the paper one I may get in touch with her and return for the...

    Re: Best Pattern for Silk Velvet?

    Beautiful fabrics, I think I would just cut it into random squares or rectangles and put it back together with black sashing sort of Mondrian like. I probably would back it with minkee and not use...

    Re: WiP Sept 27 - Oct 3, 2019

    Whew, I finally got this one pieced and sandwiched and trying to figure out how best to quilt it. I think I may just do it like the pattern in the book, gentle waves across the quilt using a walking...
  10. Re: Make a "Four Square" Quilt with Jenny Doan

    I would probably put a print/color square in the center but then I guess it would be a different quilt.:D

    Hers won't have as many dog ears but mine can be done for all the strips at once. It amounts to about the same thing.

    We didn't get to go to DS or hang DGS curtains yesterday as DGS was sick, running a temp and throwing up. So sorry that poor baby is sick and we didn't need to be exposed. It is not a rush so we can...

  19. Re: I Disliked Joining Strips - I Started Using QR's Mini-Triangle Ruler

    I meant the ends of the strips, not bias binding. When I cut the binding strips, I line all the strip ends up on the lines on my mat and cut them all in one fell swoop on a 45% angle, fast and easy.
  20. Re: I Disliked Joining Strips - I Started Using QR's Mini-Triangle Ruler

    I have always cut my strips on a 45% when I am have enough cut to size. I also press them in half before I join the lengths as it is so much easier to press a 40" strip than one that is 6 or 8 times...
