Hi Quilters!

Today at the cabin : It's a beautiful day outside. Too cold really to be damp and everything is frosty. We got our snow, but not a lot (not enough?), so that means skiing! And there's ice on the lakes now so ice fishing and skating are on the agenda. Soon the outdoor bonfires will start. Fish all day and sit by the bonfire at night, all bundled up, frying fish and potatoes and drinking hot cocoa and "What is in that mug???" Lol.

And... best of all the sky is pink and you know what that means..... Bring It On!!

This week we are highlighting some of our more popular Christmas Season sales. If you missed out on it before, now's your chance to get it, hurry though, only one week for this mega sale!

February 2014 Quilting Cruise....

Quilters, add this to your Bucket List—a Quilting Cruise.

Many quilting teachers have gotten into the cruising mode to combine quilting classes with cruising. What could be better? Visit exotic ports, shopping for fabrics, travelling with other quilters, 3+ meals a day, someone to clean up your cabin while you relax and take quilting classes while at sea.

Has this ever happened to you? A late night phone call from a man with an Australian accent asking if you would like to cruise the Caribbean with him. This happened to me in 1989. Of course, I said “what did you say?”. Was this one of those phone calls I had been warned about? So, being curious, I said “tell me more”, thinking I should just hang up on this obscene phone call. He turned out to be a travel agent who wanted to put together a quilting cruise with me as the featured teacher. I had no idea how this worked, assuming it was legitimate. Never having been on a cruise, I called my friend, Jane, from Florida who had been on several cruises; she agreed to join me and also teach some on-board classes.

Since all of our work is done on a sewing machine, we would need sewing machines. How do we go about doing that? We got our first taste of dealing with customs, because sewing machines are made outside the US; and we were taking these machines out of the country and then bringing them back. Problem solved—the Viking sewing machine company, which was the major sponsor for my PBS-TV show, Strip Quilting, came to our rescue; they furnished the machines and also sent one of their educators on the cruise. Little by little, everything fell into place.

In 1990, our first quilting cruise left port with fourteen of us, including three teachers and husbands.

We have grown over the years until now we average about 85-120 quilters on each cruise, many of whom have returned several times. And the rest is history. I have become addicted to cruising as well as being already addicted to quilting. What a great life! And to think, I almost hung up on what I thought might be an obscene phone call, but instead was a life-changing event.

What cruise stories I could tell—about machines blowing up, losing machines in customs, “George” (who came along on our cruise in a box), about shopping in the water, buying molas in the San Blas Islands of Panama. Many of these stories have become part of my quilting lectures and are also included in my book, Everyone Can Quilt.

In February of 2013, we will return to the Western Caribbean for my 14th quilting cruise; this time on the Royal Caribbean Navigator of the Seas.

A big celebration is being planning with my 15th quilting cruise in February of 2014 with a combination 22-day land tour and quilting cruise to Australia and New Zealand.

Tips on How To Store Your Antique Quilts by Pamela Wiggins of the Antiques Board at About.com

  1. The best way to store a quilt is by spreading it on an unused bed and placing an everyday coverlet over it. Quilts can be layered on a bed. This storage method keeps quilts safe from dust and light, while reducing stress on the vintage fibers that can result from folding.
  2. If you do need to fold a quilt, spread it face down between two well-worn white cotton sheets and fold in a pleated accordian fashion. While storing flat is best, folding in this manner helps to reduce stress on old fabrics and reduce the likelihood of tearing.
  3. Limited space may dictate storing a quilt under a bed safely sealed in a Rubbermaid-type container. Just be sure to fold the quilt in the accordian manner recommended above and making sure it is completely void of moisture before placing it in the container.
  4. If you are going to store a quilt by hanging it on a wall, a good method is sewing a four inch wide tube or sleeve of fabric along the top back edge and stitching every inch or so through all layers of the quilt. You can then attach it to a wall or other display area easily with a sturdy rod.

Tips:

  1. Materials used in manufacturing plastic bags, cardboard boxes, and wooden trunks and chests can all react with quilting fabrics. These should be avoided when storing quilts. If reactions occur with plastic bags, cardboard or wood, they can cause quilts to become fragile, prone to tearing or even stain them.
  2. When using a Rubbermaid or similar container for storage, make sure the textile is completely dry to avoid mildew from moisture trapped in the container.
  3. If you're hanging the quilt on the wall for the summer season, be sure distribute the weight evenly over the entire width to avoid stressing the fabric. Don't plan to store a quilt on a wall for more than six months.
  4. No matter how or where you store your quilts, avoid sunlight. All light damage to textiles is irreversible.

Thanks, Pamela!

This is the Iron I Want....

I have used several different cordless irons over the years. My personal favorite is the Panasonic, although it does not have all the things I want in an iron. E-mail both Panasonic and Janome to tell them you want the iron Kaye Wood wants: Cordless, NO steam (the bottom completely flat with no holes), no auto shut-off, Teflon bottom, in a heat-proof fabric carrying case which opens into a pressing mat. This iron would be ready to take to class and could be packed up while still hot.


Show and Tell....

This husband and wife duo makes kites to fly in competitions. These are two of their designs, using Kaye's techniques and templates.

Tips From Kaye....

Seam Matching

Interlocking Seams are easy to match. The top seam allowance is toward the needle (away from you). The bottom seam allowance is toward you.

Your sewing machine will help you match interlocking seams. As you sew, finger pin (hold the matching seamlines together). The machine pushes the top seam into the center of the bottom seam and locks it into place.

Finger Pinning seams is an easy way to match your seams. Hold the two seamlines together with your fingers until the needle is close to the seam. Remove your fingers before sewing over the seam. Do NOT sew over your fingers, that would be painful.

Pinning seams works too! Put the pin into the seamline on the top fabric, through to the seamline on the bottom fabric. Bring the pin up through the bottom sealine to the top seamline. Do not sew over the pins. Instead remove each pin as the needle approaches it.

Have You Ever Heard....

"The tent in the middle of the star will quilt out"

No, It Won't!

"A star needs to have a button in the middle because the points don't quite match."

No, it doesn't!

"You have to take one or two stitches by hand to close up the hole in the center." Or, "You have to rip out one or two stitches in the center of the star so it will lay flat."

No you don't!

Stars become easier and the centers lay flat when the angles are accurate and the seams are anchored.

The Starmaker Master Templates ensure the accuracy, and my technique of anchoring eliminate the problems with the center of the star.

The Starmakers can be used to cut many different shapes.

How Can You Strip Cut Diamonds For Stars?

It is possible to cut patterns you already have with the Starmaker Master Templates.

Take a look at the diamond template given with any particular pattern you want to make. Lay one of the Starmakers on your template. Don't worry about the size. If the angle is the same as any one of the angles on the Starmakers, that angle can be used to strip cut the diamond.

You need to know two things:

  • The size of the template and
  • the angle of the diamond.

Size: The size of the diamond is determined by the width of the strip. To measure the size (height) of the diamond, imagine it lying on a strip and measure the height.

This is the strip width needed to cut this size diamond. The top and bottom edges of the trip become the top and bottom of the diamond.

Angle: The angle is cut with one of the Starmaker Master Templates.

2014 to Australia and New Zealand Quilting Cruise

Click HERE for Info


 

February 2014 Quilting Cruise....

Quilters, add this to your Bucket List—a Quilting Cruise.

Many quilting teachers have gotten into the cruising mode to combine quilting classes with cruising. What could be better? Visit exotic ports, shopping for fabrics, travelling with other quilters, 3+ meals a day, someone to clean up your cabin while you relax and take quilting classes while at sea.

Has this ever happened to you? A late night phone call from a man with an Australian accent asking if you would like to cruise the Caribbean with him. This happened to me in 1989. Of course, I said “what did you say?”. Was this one of those phone calls I had been warned about? So, being curious, I said “tell me more”, thinking I should just hang up on this obscene phone call. He turned out to be a travel agent who wanted to put together a quilting cruise with me as the featured teacher. I had no idea how this worked, assuming it was legitimate. Never having been on a cruise, I called my friend, Jane, from Florida who had been on several cruises; she agreed to join me and also teach some on-board classes.

Since all of our work is done on a sewing machine, we would need sewing machines. How do we go about doing that? We got our first taste of dealing with customs, because sewing machines are made outside the US; and we were taking these machines out of the country and then bringing them back. Problem solved—the Viking sewing machine company, which was the major sponsor for my PBS-TV show, Strip Quilting, came to our rescue; they furnished the machines and also sent one of their educators on the cruise. Little by little, everything fell into place.

In 1990, our first quilting cruise left port with fourteen of us, including three teachers and husbands.

We have grown over the years until now we average about 85-120 quilters on each cruise, many of whom have returned several times. And the rest is history. I have become addicted to cruising as well as being already addicted to quilting. What a great life! And to think, I almost hung up on what I thought might be an obscene phone call, but instead was a life-changing event.

What cruise stories I could tell—about machines blowing up, losing machines in customs, “George” (who came along on our cruise in a box), about shopping in the water, buying molas in the San Blas Islands of Panama. Many of these stories have become part of my quilting lectures and are also included in my book, Everyone Can Quilt.

In February of 2013, we will return to the Western Caribbean for my 14th quilting cruise; this time on the Royal Caribbean Navigator of the Seas.

A big celebration is being planning with my 15th quilting cruise in February of 2014 with a combination 22-day land tour and quilting cruise to Australia and New Zealand.

This is the Iron I Want....

I have used several different cordless irons over the years. My personal favorite is the Panasonic, although it does not have all the things I want in an iron. E-mail both Panasonic and Janome to tell them you want the iron Kaye Wood wants: Cordless, NO steam (the bottom completely flat with no holes), no auto shut-off, Teflon bottom, in a heat-proof fabric carrying case which opens into a pressing mat. This iron would be ready to take to class and could be packed up while still hot.


Show and Tell....

I am a fairly new quilter and this is the first finished quilt that I have made. I began it a quilt camp in February 2009 for my husband [So he would like me going again this year] and finished it on Christmas morning. I used the pattern Diamonds of Yellowstone and View and Do Diamond Shape.

Send is your creations. Include a picture or two and a short story about your quilt/tablerunner or wallhanging and we'll put it on our Show and Tell Page!

Calculating Yardage for a Quilt....

Calculating yardage for a quilt:

1. Decide on the pattern.

2. How many different fabrics will be used?

3. Will there be lots of seam allowances?

4. Does the cutting technique you use waste fabric?

3. How small will the pieces be?

As a general rule, I allow the following for a quilt top:

Twin size quilt 6 yds

Full size quilt 8 yds

Queen 10 yds

King 12 yds

If you plan to use 3 different fabrics equally, divide the yardage by 3 to get the yardage needed for each fabric.

If there is a main color used, I buy an extra yard of that fabric.

A good mix of color is 15% dark, 15% light , 10% accent and 60% medium shades.

Since I strip piece most of my quilts using my own techniques, there is very little, if no waste, I can usually get by with a little less fabric.

But I would prefer to have too much fabric. Once extra fabric goes into my stash, the projects I make from it are Free.
