    Re: Sewing room??

    Lucky you. I like having a tall cutting station in my room. I bought a buffet on clearance and it's the perfect height. It has the advantage of storage underneath - drawers, two cupboards and book...

    Re: Nylon Thread

    I realize you were talking about pre-wound bobbins. I was using the term "invisible" because the nylon thread was often referred to as that. It usually comes in either clear or grey. The grey is...

    Re: Nylon Thread

    I have used "invisible" thread but the nylon thread of early days was terrible. As mentioned above like fishing line. I hadn't heard of this being used as a bobbin thread, only top thread. And I have...

    Re: Mid Arm thoughts

    I have an APQS George and love it. It is a sit down machine with the same orientation as a DM. It has a whopping 22" throat! I had done quite a bit of FMQ on my domestic but wanted something larger....

    Re: Midnight quilt show

    I so agree with this! I loved Craftsy. Even to access my old classes from Craftsy is a pain now on Bluprint. I am not impressed.

    Re: satin binding - make or pre-made?

    I don't remember the premade I used being very wide. It wasn't double fold, just flat. I folded it in half and machine stitched.

    Re: satin binding - make or pre-made?

    I have used the Wrights premade for a couple baby quilts. It was surprisingly soft and washes up nicely.
  9. Re: BEGINNER QUILTING - SHOULD YOU PREWASH YOUR FABRIC? Part 1 - SHRINKAGE...THE WHEN AND WHY

    That was an interesting video. I always pre-wash (except pre-cuts) and I will continue to do so. For me it is all about how the fabric feels while I am working on it. I like the feel of fabric when...

    Re: Templates

    I have only experimented a bit but I have found Amy Johnson's videos very helpful.
  15. Re: Has anyone encountered your partner not being okay with gifts?

    First off never take a partner to a quilt store with you :) Seriously my husband has always been very supportive of my quilting. In the early years however he was a little odd about gifting. I...

    Re: Finishing Raw Edges

    I prewash everything (except pre-cuts, which I seldom use). I just like the feel of the fabric better after it has been washed. I don't worry about finishing the edges. I'm in the same camp as...

    Re: Quilting with flannel

    I think the most important thing is prewashing. Also when I work with flannel I tend to make simple blocks with large pieces. I save the more intricate piecing for plain cotton quilting fabric.
  24. Re: When is a quilt just too ugly to continue?

    I personally really like it. In the past I've had quilts I wasn't crazy about but then after quilting I loved them. Quilting just adds so much. On the other hand I have a quilt I'm working on with...

    Bowl Cozies

    Just a question for makers of bowl cozies. Most of the tutorials I've seen call for two layers of batting. The one I was gifted only has one layer and seems to work fine. I made a couple with two...
