  1. Re: Pattern for lap quilts for individuals in wheelchairs

    I’ve made several wheelchair quilts and donated
    them to nursing homes. I just sat in a chair and
    measured the width of my lap. Then measured
    to the floor. I chose colorful fabrics and a

    Re: Triangles

    You never cut squares that would leave bias
    edges to work with. The best way to make your
    Triangles with no bias edges are-
    Cut your squares 1 inch bigger than your
    pattern calls for. Place two...

    I’m sure you can search the Internet for
    a pattern that will fit a 10 inch block.

    Re: Polyester fleece blanket batting?

    Polyester and cotton fabrics will shrink differently
    when washed. It’s usually not a good idea to
    mix polyester and cotton fabrics.
    When you say cotton sheeting do you mean you
    are going to cut...

    Re: Need a sewing machine

    I have Bernina computerized machines. I would never
    buy anything else. You get what you pay for.
    $200 machines are disposable machines.
    They will last a couple years. Then you are

    Re: Cutting my table for a drop in machine.

    Be sure to put your machine as far right as you can.
    You need the area to the left of your machine
    As an open area for your fabric as you piece
    your quilt.

    Re: Cutting my table for a drop in machine.

    It may help to go to a local store that sells your machine
    and look at the cutouts they have in their tables.
    You may be able to make a template with a
    large piece of paper.

    If you have a closet it will be a great place to put
    Wire baskets/ shelves for fabric storage.

    have too much ligh. I have a light at ever

    Re: Anyone else thought about this?

    I have two machines both computerized.
    I love the way they sew and I like the
    option to change the needle position.
    Both are Berninas. The embroidery machine
    I bought new. The one I piece on I...
  10. Re: Make a "Fancy Flight" Quilt with Jenny Doan

    She uses the flying geese pattern which
    has been around for years. The geese are
    always sewn with the vertical strips.
    A great way to use a favorite fabric
    for a cute border.

    Re: satin binding - make or pre-made?

    Satin doesn’t wear well. Baby quilts get washed a lot.
    Satin binding will have to be replaced before the
    quilt wears out. Works better with a fancy quilt
    that will not be used/washed a lot.

    Re: Quilting

    Personally I see no reason to ever use starch
    at any stage of the quilting process.
    Plus I would not want to add harmful
    chemicals to my fabric/quilt.

    Nice job! I too must have my fabric sorted and

    runners so they pull out for easy access.
    I sort my fabrics by color. When I need
    red fabric I can go to the...

    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.

    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.

    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.
