    Re: Prewashing Pre-cuts

    Your batting will control shrinkage. This may shock some, but I NEVER prewash fabric before using it. I prefer the stiffer feel of the unwashed fabric. I could accomplish the same thing with washing...

    Re: Selling your house question

    Zillow estimates are never right! A realtor should run comps, don't believe the zestimate. Also, Zillow sells your info, so if you create an account, everyone and their brother now has your info. Get...

    Re: Trade tarrifs and quilting

    IF it means more jobs and more being made here (big if), then the short-term inconvenience of higher prices will be worth it. Change is always uncomfortable. But the only way people here will be able...

    Re: Tuesday Trivia: Arizona

    Yes, Palo verde is the state tree. Palo means stick and verde is Spanish for green. They are named that because the bark is green. It helps with chlorophyll production as the leaves are tiny.

    Re: Two hand quilting questions

    I find that the batting makes a big difference. I used warm &natural once to hand quilt and it was really hard, never again! Now I use Pellon 90/10 or Quilter's Dream. On the queen size I am making...

    Re: Tuesday Trivia: Arizona

    I have lived here for 23 years. Have seen 7 rattlers in the wild. You won't see them in densely populated areas, only outside the cities. Just have to be careful when out. I would make 1 correction...

    Re: THESE DO NOT WORK

    Amazon is very good about refunding for items that are not as expected or defective. Leave a review on the seller as well, no excuse for lack of communication and you will help save others from the...

    Re: This Is Gross...BEWARE...

    They are busy eating rodents, so they are actually good guys! Rattlers on the other hand....the only good rattler is a dead one! I have seen my fair share here. Don't get me started on scorpions...

    Re: Sewing furniture

    My husband painted an old drafting table he purchased from his work years ago when they bought new office furniture. (Best $5 he spent!) He painted it to cover the ugly color and is adding a power...

    Re: Disturbing

    There is a morally slippery slope in this country. Now the f word is commonplace. Makes me ill, but things won't be getting better anytime soon. Some things are just flat out inappropriate, but...

  15. Re: Aurafil thread and M* thread. Anyone used both of these?

    I like Aurifil, but I recently tried Presencia 60wt for piecing. Really like it and the seams lay flatter. Can fit a lot more on the bobbin, too, which is nice as my Pfaff bobbins seem to run out...

    Re: Fat quarters. What are they good for?

    Fat quarters are the only pre-cut I buy because of the versatility. I make a lot of scrappy/50+ fabric quilts and rarely buy more than a half yard so that I can have variety. I also never pay full...

    I think those designers are popular enough some company will take them on. That said, I can't afford to pay LQS prices for fabric, so I shop a local discount store with brand name fabrics for...

    Re: Hand Quilting

    I hand quilt without a hoop all the time. I hate pins and prefer to thread/board baste a la Sharon Schamber's method. But pin basting will work.

    Re: Scrappy Flying Geese from Charm Swap

    Thanks everyone. Flying geese actually aren't hard if you have a good trimming tool! They are one of my favorite units to make and have many more in my future!!
  24. Re: Jenny's Courtship quilt and flying geese

    I make my flying geese 4 at a time with Deb Tucker Wing Clipper tool. Very fast and accurate. Just finished a quilt with 320 geese using this tool.

    Re: Scrappy Flying Geese from Charm Swap

    Pcbatiks, I like the Aurifil thread. Learned not to cut it too long as the end starts to fray after stitching awhile. I also use perle cotton frequently, size 8 or 12. Want to try dying crochet...
