    Re: White Fabric dilemma

    I have used white on white for several quilts
    I liked the texture it gives white fabric.
    I did buy yardage to get a good selection.
    When I want a solid white for piecing I use Kona Snow.
    When I...

    Re: Quick and easy layer cake pattern

    I think something that would go with your
    rainbow batik would be bright solids. A star quilt would
    work using your rainbow for the points
    and solid red and blue for the-center block.
    Great...

    Re: All Stars quilt but in charm square size

    Using 1 1/2 strips will be 1 inch after seams. Very small.
    I imagine that’s why 2 1/2 inch strips are usually used.
    Be sure to keep everything in proportion.
    Small star points/ small centers....

    Re: A better look

    I think a bright green solid would be a better border choice.
    As well as the binding. Your brown choice would dull your
    yellow sunflower.

    Re: Cutting mat stench

    It is the plastic outgassing formaldyde.

    I would not call this a stench but
    a chemical smell.

    Re: bubble

    I imagine it is from using heat on it when you
    where pressing. The cutting mats are a hard
    plastic for using rotary cutters.
    Ironing boards should be used for heat.

    Re: Big Wonky Stars Question

    When I make a Wonky star block I cut on the straight of
    grain because I cut strips first. Wonky means the star
    points are different lengths.
    Wonky is not the way the fabric is cut.

    Beautiful quilts. Such an eye for color and the
    placement of the color.

    I can see this as a great children’s quilt.

    using children’s prints and assorted solids
    to make colorful pinwheels.
