Use some funky fabric and make a bunch for all the girls you know; quick and stylish too, the perfect gift for anyone.

Size: 8" x 9".

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.
