  • Using Press-N-Seal for Quilting designs

    This was the best tip I have received this year. Use Press-N-Seal for top quilting. Just place on design you want to use, trace with permanent marker, let dry, stick to area on quilt you want to sew and sew right through the Press-N-Seal. I am nearing the end of a large quilt and am so happy with the...

  • Help my addiction

    I just joined this club, hoping to share in this fun new mess I've gotten myself into. I've been quilting for 5 years now. I've quit my day job, stay up way too late, and wake up way too early with new ideas jumping out of my head. I find it hard to get motivated to do any cleaning, wash...
