Hi Quilters!

Today at the Cabin : Well, it's still cold, but a lot of the snow is gone. The chickens have been let out of the coop and are happily scratching at the frozen ground. Where last week was snow, now there's quite a bit of dirt showing. Lots of piles of leaves for them to scratch around in and they are happy, happy, happy. The eggs these gals lay are so good (and healthy and nutritious too), way better than the store bought variety!

This week we are featuring a lot of our patterns by Far Flung Quilts. Also, a new designer in our shop, Aunties Two is on sale.

Also we've got quite a few "HURT" items that are in serious need of a good home. These are items that are fine, but the packaging is misprinted, ripped or torn.

Lots of cool new stuff Check It Out Pages too!

Q: I am working on a project using a reverse applique technique.

When the appliques are complete, I am finding it difficult to get all the paper off the back. Is there a real long term problem with allowing the paper to stay in there? Obviously it will not show once the batting and backing are attached to my block.

K: I'm sure it wouldn't be a problem to leave the paper on. There are quite a few older quilts that I know of that still have paper in them. But if you are sewing the paper on, you might try using freezer paper and ironing it on instead.

Charity Quilts....

I belong to a newly formed quilt guild and we have taken on the project of making quilts for chemo patients at a local cancer center I am in the search for orphan blocks that we could turn into beautiful quilts for these chemo patients they see about 1000 patients a year and we took 40 quilts the first round in December and they are all gone and we are trying to get quilts to them about every other month but we need other peoples help with this the response that we have gotten from the nurses doctors and patients are just overwhelming any help would be appreciated. If you send me your email i will put you in a group to see the pictures as the quilts are finished and see what a difference this has made in someone's life;

Thanks Linda

Q: I used a washable marker and when I put my quilt in the washer, it still had marks on it....

Is it too late to try to do anything besides sew some decorative stitches on it, or should I start a new block that took hours to embroider. Hope you can help.

K: I have heard but never tried myself, that hairspray is wonderful for getting ink out. You spray it on, then rinse in cold water. Repeat as necessary. People have assured me this is a fool proof method.

Quilt Preservation....

Q: I am the fourth generation to inherit all the beautiful very fragile quilt squares in my family. They are crazy quilt fashion, backed by muslin but are too fragile to even think of putting together. Someone once told me you can make a fabric book of each one by a process museums use but I don't know where to look for the information. Some of these date back to the 1800's with satin squares depicting the event and date. Hopefully I can preserve them for the next generation but am now in my seventies and decided I had better get with the program and find out how to do it. Would appreciate any help you may be able to provide!

Please let us know how you would answer this question!

Email me at terrye@kayewood.com

Here are some of the answers:

Jacquelyn would use a plastic report cover.

Connie would frame them for all to enjoy.

Anyone else? What would you do?

Have a great week, everyone!
