  • Re: Did You Work on a Quilt Today? #5

    Here is the second quilt with the jungle prints. I started it at 9:00pm last night thinking I would just get it cut out but ended up staying up until it was done around 1:00 am. At least it is done. I have 3 quilts I have to get quilted before I can quilt these two but it is a relief in my mind to know...

  • Invisible thread and baby quilts

    I'm about to machine quilt a real quilt for the first time--after practicing--and was wondering if invisible thread is appropriate for a flannel baby quilt. I don't know if there are safety issues for the baby, or if the filament will cut the flannel? Thanks!. Steph

  • Re: Looking for ideas for an all over design for a baby quilt

    I love to do the swirls with loops and hearts on baby quilts. This design seems to give enough density that it will hold up for decades and looks adorable and suitable for baby!

  • Re: Longarmers Share

    I have a long arm system and I would gladly load and baste anyone's quilt for just $15.00. Any takers out there? I use either regular cotton thread at 6 stitches per inch or dissolving thread. The dissolving thread will disappear in warm water (usually in your tub) after you have finished your quilt...

    Robyn, My very 1st quilt "LOVE IN BLUE" was a 9 patch lap lap (a full size quilt, quilted in my lap, block by block) as taught by Georgia Bonesteel.

  • Re: "Piece" of family history

    You are so fortunate to have those quilt pieces to pass on to you niece or nephew. I get the special quilt soap from the quilt shop and I have seen some of those fabrics or very close patterns on some of the ebay stores who sell reproduction fabrics. You might want to reinforce some of the seams by hand...
