A Quilting Resource

Quilters Helping Quilters: That’s What This Group is About

We know QCA offers excellent Resources already, but we want to keep resources from getting buried within threads where none of us can find them again. One such resource is Top Websites for Quilters on QCA.

What we desire for this group is to be able to share and refer each other to as many written tutorials and “how-to” videos as we can within specific topics for beginning quilters to advanced. Please join the group and use it as we “grow” our own “Quilting Handbook” for reference when we get into a spot or simply want to learn a new technique.

Once a thread has been exhausted, we'll transfer the information to a PAGE in the group for ready access.

There are two threads now in the group called "General Information" and "Binding a Quilt". 

Join the group and let me know what you think! It will only work if we use it to help each other learn more.

This is going to be a much needed, very helpful  group. Almost every topic I gave seen, in discussions someone has posted a helpful site. Now they can post in that group and it won't be buried.

Roxana,  I am getting ready to make a quilt for a school teacher & I want to copy the students handprint & applique it onto a block.  I haven't worked w/ freezer paper before & someone said to trace the kids handprint on that then you can transfer it to the fabric.  Can I do that & how do I go about it?  Does the freezer paper stick to the fabric & I need help please.

 

Thanks, Sheila Taylor

Roxana, thanks for setting this up.

Thanks, Judy. It will only work if everyone participates with their resources. We just wanted to be able to readily find the resources instead of having to search the Web again or search QCA to find that conversation that we KNOW we read about! .... So join in the fun!

Sheila, I don't think it is difficult but I am no expert. The shiny side of the freezer paper does iron and stick to fabric. I'll start a thread on the group and get others to respond. Thank you!
