  • Re: Batting Seam Tape

    Flojo, I purchased my batting tape at a small quilt shop after watching the store owner "tape" batting together for a quilt. I was amazed at how well it worked! After she sandwiched the quilt I couldn't see the seam and I was sold! I have used this on numerous occasions and love it. The...

  • Wrinkle Releaser

    While long arm quilting, there are times when the batting or quilt top becomes wrinkled from being rolled. I spray them with a little wrinkle re-leaser and smooth out the wrinkles before quilting to avoid the wrinkles from being quilted into the quilt. The product also reduces static electricity that...

  • recycle mattress pads

    Here's an article I wrote about my mother's quilting idea. When my dad had cancer and was bed ridden, she recycled old mattress pads into bed pads. This would make a good service project for older girl scouts working on their Gold Award. http://www.examiner.com/children-s-arts-crafts-in-panama...

I have been making leaf quilts and was wondering if I could put batting behind each individual leaf, add the leaf veins and any other embellishment I wish, trim the batting close to the outline of each leaf...

  • Shrinkage

    No, I'm not talking about shrinkage in terms of the old Jerry Seinfeld episode. After finally finishing the drunken batik, I laundered it to remove thread bits, chalk markings, pet hair, and spray basting stiffness. Oh my gosh, it shrank a full 4 inches in width - from 64" to 60" - and...

  • Re: pre-washing (common question I'm sure)

    I pre-wash when I am using polyester fiberfill but not when using cotton. I do it with poly fill because the poly fill won't shrink with the cotton fabric. With cotton fill, I like to let the fabric shrink with the batting for that old look.
