  • Does your family think quilting is a waste of time....

    So the other day my mother came over and of course my fabric was all over my sewing room, I was in the middle of straightening it up. She says "wow you have lots of fabric" and "you have been quilting", and of course I said yes. See the thing is I just got done ordering lots of fabric...

  • Is this normal :-)

    I recently went to the local Walmart in my area and they are in the process of remodeling the store. My intent was to go pick up 2 trash cans and that's it. Well as I am heading to checkout I see the big red clearance sign above tons and tons of fabric. I go over and to my surprise they are selling...

  • Need Fabric - Spice Market by Exclusively Quilters - 2/3 yd cotton (not flannel)

    I am making the Spice Market quilt using fabric from the Exclusively Quilters Style #3708 collection (the cotton shipped about 2 years ago -- not the flannel they expect to ship in June). I accidentally cut the center piece too small. I need a piece that is 24 x 24 of the large floral print. Can anyone...

  • Need advice on knitting bag

    Hi all! I just got my patterns for purses and one of them (tulip purse) has directions for turning it into a knitting bag, which I desperately need.

  • It's not laying flat...

    Hi, I'm usually the one that reads a lot of the posts but hardly ever contributes something myself, but tonight I'm at a loss. I have created a new table runner using the Seminole Table Runner pattern. When I lay the runner out flat, the edges pucker. The center of the runner is fine; it's...

  • Backing material print not square to grain

    My backing fabric is printed with an assortment of 3 inch squares. I'm thinking I should cut the fabric to look square to the print but it will be off on the grain. What would you do?

  • Misbehaving fabric

    I purchased some "Quilters Solid White" fabric to make some small table cloths. I always prewash and starch the fabric before using the them. For this project I purchased 9 yards and thought it would be too much for the washing machine at one time, so I cut a piece that was 74 inches long....

    When I plan a new quilt, I go thru my fabric stash as the first step in choosing fabrics. Then I usually have to head to the quilt store or on-line to find additional fabrics.

  • Re: To prewash or not to prewash and why

    When I first started quilting I prewashed too...but not anymore! I found that its easier to cut, piece and quilt fabric before its washed. After I finish the quilt, I was it. I really like the way my quilts look when they are washed after quilting.It gives it more of an antique look. The other thing...
