  • Is it always necessary to wash fabric scraps before piecing?

    I have been given a large supply of fabric scraps - many are very small pieces. I would like to use these in a scrappy quilt but but I'm not sure whether they have been pre-washed. I hate to think of the ravelly mess I would end up with if I had to wash all the pieces first. I would think the quilting...

  • Re: Hi, my name is Victoria and I am an addict.

    Victoria, I couldn't have explained me any better than you did you! I think what has helped me the most is watching the Love of Quilting Shows. I finished a quilt I was making for my DGS and I was up to the binding part...I've NEVER had a binding finish without being a disappointing mess where...

  • Shopping for fabric at sales

    I'm still fairly new at all of this. The patterns I've made so far have either been from a book or class and those had the fabric requirements and color suggestions. My local shop is having their year end blow out sale tomorrow and Saturday and I'm thinking about picking up some fabric. I...

  • Re: What Are You Up to Today? #6

    I am working on finishing up a Christmas gift that has me stumped. I made a table runner for my step-mom in a basic zig zag quilted pattern out of muted green and brown and a cream (they have a very rustic home). I don't have a lot of the fabric left and since I dug it out from my stash it's...

  • Washing pre-cuts

    I always machine wash my fabric before I use it in a quilt. But I'm new to using pre-cuts. How does one deal with washing jelly rolls, layer cakes or charm packs before use? I'm afraid to wash them for fear of them fraying to bits. Or do you just hope for the best that the fabric won't run...

  • HI! New member from Western U.P MIchigan

    Hi everyone! I consider myself a new quilter since the last time I made a quilt was 47 years ago! Then the quilt was all done by hand with scissors so I have a lot to learn. Where I live is the middle of a forest on a lake and sparsely populated. Fortunately I met some friends that have been quilting...

  • Re: Fabric reviews

    Agreed. I have several pieces leftover from a block of the month. I've checked them out since to get some additional cuts for anotehr quilt, but decided not to. I will just use up the scraps and not buy anymore. I really like Robert Kaufman Fusion cottons. They come in a rainbow of colors. It washes...

  • Re: Fabric reviews

    Nancy, Looking over your list, I have a couple of immediate responses without going to my stash. Kaufman Kona solids - like them for color choices and stitching, but if you are planning on hand quilting - thumbs down - the weave and thickness make it difficult to needle. Henry Glass- thumbs up- any of...
