    Re: Cutting mat stench

    You may have to just buy a mat and leave it out in the garage or outside for a few weeks. I find lots of new products have chemical smells at first, but it dissipates in time.

    Re: When is a quilt just too ugly to continue?

    I like it, and I don't even like orange very much. Why not do something else for the new baby, then you might feel better about this one, and be able to finish it and donate it. Sometimes we make...

    Re: Can you help ID this pattern, please?

    I agree about the iron cross look, and once you see it, you can't unsee it. I wonder how it would look if the center square of each cross were left white, rather than yellow? I can't quite visualize...

    Re: BINDING

    Apparently there are more folks than I thought who machine sew their binding, front and back. Yay! I'm not the only one.
    I had to give up hand sewing. I, too, find it works better if the binding...

    Re: Need help cutting yardage please

    I just want to remind everyone that when you buy precuts, they are rarely cut on the straight of the grain. Sometimes they are really wonky. So if it is OK to use these in a pieced top, in which you...
  11. Re: hello, newbie, looking for quilting machine purchase help

    Hi, and Welcome! Even if you find a good machine with a larger throat, you may find that there is not much room to the left of the needle. When you are doing the quilting itself, you will be happier...

    Re: Monday Trivia: Oregon

    I love Oregon. It has so many natural attractions and such a varied assortment. I would love to live there, near my brother, but I bet they are turning people away at the gate. (come to visit, but...

    Re: On-line fabric ordering?

    I think for your special project coming up you should treat yourself to a trip to M* and pick out the fabric in person.

    If you look at the daily deals that M* runs, you can see all the colors in the precut, and further down the page, some suggestions for solids that go with the deal. I sometimes just buy one or two...

    Re: Light weight mesh-style quilting gloves?

    I'm wondering if some rubber finger cots, or the things people wear on their thumbs to flip through pages fast, or even just the cut off fingers and thumbs of some rubber gloves would work. I use...

    Re: It isn't square

    I have that precut too. I think it is Charlotte. It is pretty busy, but at least the colors and patterns are coordinated. When you use your new precut, if you are still put off by its busy-ness, you...

    Re: Freemotion quilting or stitch in the ditch

    Or you could do a pattern of straight lines both across and up and down, making a cross hatch. It would reinforce the repetitive pattern of the squares. I think.

    Re: Make a "Rick Rack" Quilt with Jenny Doan

    I would have liked her to lay out the blocks in a few different ways, to show us the various ways it could look. I apparently can't make that switch in my brain. After all, I'm from Missouri. You...

    Caroljean, I am coming into this conversation a little bit late, but I wanted to suggest that you buy yourself some 501 spray before you do your next sandwich. It is a temporary basting spray that...

    I guess I thought all machines had a wheel on the right side that could be turned to get the needle to stop anywhere in the rotation.

    So, if you do this, would you sew the blocks together so that the flannel side has the rag effect, or the cotton side?

    I had a fabric that featured different kinds of teapots and cups. I was able to fancy cut them all to one size, and alternate with 4-patches in complimentary colors. Really simple, but a good way to...
