Quilting Question of the Week....

Q: When I try to do perfect miter binding, it looks great on the top side but when I turn over the edge to whip stitch the back, I can't seem to get the corner to miter. What do you suggest?

K: Be sure to whip stitch one side all the way to the corner, then fold the other side down. It should miter perfectly.

Q: When you are tying a quilt and it's time to put the binding on, do you stitch all four sides of the quilt and then put the binding on?

K: I tie my quilts by machine by zig zagging over the yarn and then tying. I then overcast all 4 sides with a long zig zag stitch before adding the binding.


Tips and Humor From Kaye....

What part of quilt making do you like?

Since this is supposed to be fun, you don't have to do it all. Each part of the quilt making takes different skills and thought processes, and you may want to partner with someone to work on a quilt.

I enjoy the planning and piecing of the quilt top, so that is what I do. I send all of my quilts out to be machine quilted by someone who likes to do the quilting.

Designing a quilt can be done in a variety of ways. I start with a particular technique, such as cutting diamonds. Some of you let the fabric direct you; some make a pattern that is already planned.

Starting a project takes a lot of thought; pattern and fabric choices, etc. When I'm in the starting mode, I start several projects.

Continuing a project takes attention to accuracy.

Finishing a project is like heaven to some of you; it's a sad ending to others.

These were my first 2 quilts. We were having a Sept 11th service at our church and the quilts hadn't been quilted yet but were placed on the Alter. Those 2 quilts were sent to a evaq hosp in Iraq over 6 years ago. I have this photo hanging in my sewing room to remind me of my Mission that God has shown me and to remind myself of my part in helping to cover our warriors in the military. I wonder about the 2 people who got those quilts....I wonder if I have helped them in anyway....Sheryl

Quilting Question of the Week....

Q: I have to travel on a long trip and wonder what is the best way to pack my fabric and quilts to keep them safe?

K: The best rule of thumb is to let the fabric breathe. Don't pack tightly in plastic bags and such. If the fabric needs to be protected, put it inside pillowcases.

Q: How do you trim a baby quilt with satin?
K: If you use a wide satin ribbon, fold the ribbon in half, lengthwise, wrong sides together and press. Encase the edge of the quilt inside the folded satin and topstitch.

Tips and Humor From Kaye....

How Many UFOs Do You Have?

Some of you have a lot of UFOs (Un-Finished Objects); some have none; most of you have a few. Your personality type has a big influence on the way you approach your quilts.

If you have to finish one project before starting another, you have my sympathy. I like change, so I like to have several projects in the works; that way, I can work on whichever one talks to me that day.

I often hear "I will be so glad when this quilt is finished; then I never want to see it again."

News Alert!

Quilting is supposed to be fun and a stress reliever. My philosophical thought for the day: Some quilts do not deserve to be finished!

This is my "New Wave" quilt. Ever buy a bunch of fat quarters you love, but they're too pretty to cut up? This is a fun way to showcase them without cutting them up too small. I enjoyed sewing this quilt, and then it was fun practicing a different free motion or machine stitch in each row.....Sheila

"Circles of Black, Circles of White 3" - the third in a series of art quilts embellished with buttons and beads.

Beaded Quilts

Jeanette Shanigan, a designer-artist, teacher and author of numerous beading books, lost her mother in 1985 after a long battle with breast cancer. Since then, Jeanette has been donating her efforts to raising money and awareness for researching a cure. Jeanette founded the Bead-It-Forward Beaded Quilts Project in 2006. With the contribution of 31 beadwork artists, Jeanette created a quilt from one-inch butterfly-themed beaded squares and donated it to the Bead Artists Against Breast Cancer (BAABC) auction, held during the Bead Social at the Bead and Button Show in June. In that first year, the beaded quilt brought in over $1,000. Check it out HERE

And see our Beaded Quilts Board on Pinterest - Add Yours!

Send me your beaded quilt pictures and we'll put them on our Show and Tell Pages and our Pinterest Boards!

Hi Quilters!

(Well, ok, yesterday it snowed, but today the sun is shining! Gotta stay positive, right?)

Quilting Question of the Week....

Q: How do you make chenille?
K: You can do this in five easy steps.
1) Stack 6 pieces of fabric right sides up with the largest piece on the bottom.
2) Pin the fabric pieces together. With a ruler and a washable fabric marker, draw a diagonal line in the center from corner to corner. Continue drawing diagonal lines 3/4" of an inch apart until you have marked the entire square.
3) With a sewing machine, stitch along all of the marked diagonal lines.
4) Using scissors, cut the center of each row. (Do NOT cut the bottom piece)
5) Once all of the rows have been cut, machine wash and dry the fabric piece.


Tips and Humor From Kaye....

What Fabrics Do I Buy To Feed My Stash?
  • Color families (fabric with shades and tints of the same color), for example all the blues would be in one color family.
  • Colors that like each otherAccent colors (they make you say "wow"!)

When planning my quilts, this formula sometimes helps:

  • 70% medium shades
  • 20% to 25% dark or light shades
  • 5% - 10% accent colors

Hi Quilters!

The grass is getting greener, and while there's still a skim of ice on the pond most mornings, spring is definitely on it's way in. Whew! What a crazy winter. And now, just in time for Spring, and just as the last of the snows are finally receding, what do we bring you? More snow!

Sorry, I just had to. I was wandering around the internet yesterday and bumped into the super cool pictures of Snow Quilts. You can see them all on our blog, along with the story HERE. As always, you can click on the pictures in the blog to biggify them!

Or you can browse the newsletter and find them sprinkled throughout. Enjoy them, I was just amazed. And I decided that even if they weren't real (looks real to me) they were still amazing......

Question of the Week....

What is the difference between an "E" book or "E" pattern and the regular version, and why aren't all patterns available in "E"?

The "E" stands for "electronic". So any EPatterns or Ebooks are ordered just as you would order a regular book or pattern but it is sent to you through your email address. You get either a link to download your ebook or epattern or you'll get the actual item attached to an email. Then, on your end you print it out, or store it on your computer. The best thing about these is the Instant Gratification feature, you get it NOW, and, there's no shipping charges!

We can only "E" Kaye's books and patterns, the other patterns and books we carry are not ours, so we don't have the rights to "E" them, sorry.


Tips and Humor From Kaye....

The Fabric Police

There is a law that you cannot leave a state without buying fabric.Soon after I menytioned this in a seminar, I got a phone call from a man who said, "My wife was at your seminar and I understand there is a fabric law."

"Every quilter knows about this law," I said.

"Well, I'm a state trooper, and no one at the post knew about this law, but when we checked with our quilting wives, they all knew"
