  • Re: Counting projects

    I have to say I'm with you on this one. How can anyone resist fabic store sales? I know about 5 years ago I decided to get rid of my stash and took it over to the local store and donated all the fabric to ladies who were making quilts for Childrens Hospital. When I came in I asked the Manager (who...

  • United States Quilt Block Collection Quilt - Need help in gathering fabric

    I am working on a quilt for my DH from the book published by House of White Birches. The book is United States Quilt Block Collection. I am hoping to have this complete for him by Christmas of this year, but that will all depend upon the help that I can get from my quilting friends on QCA. I really want...

  • Re: What are you up to today? #3

    I worked and worked and worked on piecing a back for a long quilt. First the material wasn't square so off to the store for more fabric-this was yesterday. Then I find the muslin didn't match, but I had enough if I did 3 pieces. Got it done and the seams faced opposite each other. So out comes...

  • Re: Cleaning an old stained quilt

    You might try the color catcher sheets put out by Clorox, I think. The box says Color Catcher Sheets. They do work. If the color has set, you might use OXI Clean in a tub of warm water. Put the OXI Clean in with the water and mix before you put the quilt in. Let the quilt soak for up to 24 hrs. Check...

  • Border questions

    Hi there, I have a question about borders. Do they need to be the same on all four sides or has anyone ever made the side bigger than the top and bottom or vise versa?? Cheri

  • re: Quilting and Yoga

    Good Monday morning to you Heather and Happy Valentine's Day! Yes, it sounds like Ashtanga is for you for sure - and there are so many poses that you're likely not to get bored. I began my yoga classes at the Y - but so many studios have started up in our neighborhood and close vicinity that...

  • Re: QCA Member Tip Contest - Post Your Entries Here

    February Newsletter Tip Winner: I'm not sure how "creative" my tip is for this post, but the best way for me to get a project finalized or work completed is for me to be completely and totally organized - which of course, takes time! I would say the best gift a quilter can give him or herself...

  • Re: QCA Member Tip Contest - Post Your Entries Here

    I have a tip that I improved on. I had saw on the internet fabric folded on to plastic "bolt"s. I wanted to do this but found the plastic bolts expensive for me. So I wanted to use cardboard. I read somewhere to use comic book cardboard. Apparently to preserve your comic book you put it into...

    Richard - 7500 yards of fabric? That's unbelievable. Perhaps you should just open your own quilt shop. Post some photos of all that fabric and starting selling! Good luck on your sewing room "re-org"! Kim
