Hi Quilters!

Today at the Cabin : Outside, it is gorgeous, although humid. The grass is growing almost fast enough to see it, and the lilacs are the star of the show. Rhubarb is up in the garden and one more day until the baby chicks are due to make their appearance. Inside, we are wet! Last week I woke to find the sump pump in the warehouse had quit working and an inch of rain water was soaking into everything that was on the ground. So far we've found no damage to products as everything is up on shelves, but the carpets are wet, the boxes are wet and everything is just damp. Yuck!


This week all of our June themed patterns, Father's Day patterns and Judy Niemeyer patterns are on sale. Judy features the best in foundation paper piecing patterns, and she includes the paper needed with the pattern!

Q: How do I do reverse bobbin work? Do I need a special bobbin case for it?

K: Reverse bobbin work involves sewing with thread or fiber too large to go through the needles eye. You can do bobbin work with decorative serger thread, narrow silk ribbon, or other fibers. You simply hand-wind your fiber on the bobbin, and lay it in the bobbin case without inserting it into the bobbin tension slot. Bring the fiber up through the needle hole with the needle thread. A decorative stitch will be sewn on the "other" side of the fabric. For best results you'll want to enlarge the stitch to the widest and longest setting available. A zigzag, or even a straight stitch can produce beautiful results. With Janome machines, no special bobbin case is necessary. Simply avoid the tension clip, bring the thread up through the needle hole, and you're ready for this decorative technique.

Q: Will you explain again the difference between an e-book and regular book?

K: Your regular book will of course come to you through the mail. When you order an e-book, we send a link to your e-mail. After you receive it, you click and download the book to your computer. Print it out and you are ready to go! The best thing about this method is you do it at your convenience, it's faster and cheaper because you save on shipping charges. Here is a link that will take you to a listing of all of our "e" products.

Q and A With Kaye....

Q: How do you put a hanging sleeve or just simply hang a circle quilt?

K: You would make a half circle sleeve and sew it across the middle. Put a dowel in the sleeve that goes across the middle of the quilt. This will keep it stable and help keep it's form. Then bend a wire coat hanger and put it in the half circle.

Q: How do I accurately measure the finished top size, when setting up the back? I would like to do some creative applique on the back, but don't know how to position it.

K: Cut the backing 4-6" larger than the top. Fold in the fourths to find the center. That should help you position the applique.

How To Store Quilts....

1. Quilts should be aired or vacuumed before storing. Use a low suction hand vac with a nylon screen to protect it from harmful pull. When airing, be sure the quilt is laying flat, protected from soil, and not in direct sunlight.

2. The ideal storage is a flat surface, properly lined with acid free material, large enough to have its own space.

3. When folding, use crumpled acid-free tissue in the folds for support. Refold the quilt every 3-6 months to minimize permanent fold lines. Rolling quilts is an option, but it does place stress on the entire quilt.

4. If the storage unit is made of wood or cardboard, it should be lined with several layers of washed, 100% cotton fabric. This is necessary to protect the fabric from chemicals in the wood or paper. Cotton liner should be washed semi-annually.

5. Covers of pre washed 100% cotton sheeting, muslin, pillow cases, or acid-free tissue paper are strongly recommended. These materials allow air to pass through and keep light and dust out. Plastic is not advised.

6. Keep the storage area clean and insect free. The herb Artemisia is a natural pesticide. Hang in the storage area or in a small bag. Do not let the bag touch the quilts!

Y-Seams....

They're not that hard and Kaye shows you how in our YouTube Channel

HERE

Here's a free tip sheet on Kaye's easy way to do Y-Seams!


Q and A With Kaye....

Q: Our church group had a hand pieced quilt top, machine quilted. The quilt top is about 2" squares and some of the fabric is not the best. We are now having trouble with wavy bindings. Any hints on how to fix this problem?

K: Cut the bindings on the straight of grain and sew with the binding on top. Make sure the binding is full as it is wrapped around. That should help with the problem.

Q: I am trying to find a way to print a drawing onto black fabric so I can stitch the drawing. Do you know of a method where I can actually draw, or print the design/picture on black fabric in white ink?

K: There are many quilting transfer pencils and chalks offered by Clover or Sulky to draw on fabrics. They come in white, silver and many other pastel colors. Most will brush or wash off. You should be able to pick one up at any quilt or craft store.

Q: Some of the fabric I have purchased for scrap quilts seems nice until it is laundered. Afterwards, it becomes real thin and flimsy. Should this be used in a quilt or would it be advisable to just count it as a learning experience. Would it help if I used a very thin stabilizer or interfacing? Any other ideas would be appreciated.

K: If this is meant to be a good quilt, I would chalk it up to experience. It will have no lasting power to it and when you wash it, there's a good chance it will become even more thin and flimsy. Plus, a thinner fabric like that does not hold stitches as well. If you are determined to use it, you could try spraying it with Magic Sizing. You can find it in the laundry aisle and will help your fabric have a little more "body" to it.

Black Rock Ferry Quilt Pattern - Brand New!

Some quilts feel like a journey. As far back as 1796, an old ferry was passage for many settlers who journeyed from the U.S. into Canada at Niagara Falls, Ontario to their new homes. Although many a spectacular tale was likely told as they reflected on their journey across the water, for them, the voyage was all about the destination. Do we sometimes get so caught up in getting to the other side that we fail to revel in the wonders of each day along the way? Enjoy the elements of this quilt as it comes together, allowing the movement of the ferry paddles to propel you forward, whatever your journey.

Show and Tell....

My grandson wanted a wallhanging for a computer teacher he had that year. The kids were always going back and forth about PC verses Mac. At the awards night he surprised her with this wallhanging/lap quilt. He had 12 pages of blog on PC verses Mac and he got it down to 9 pages. They are interesting to read. We just tied the quilt because I was running out of time. He seems to wait till last minute for something. I enjoyed doing this.
