  • Printing PDF file templates at 100%

    When I print a template on my MAC, I get various sizes, even though I set my scale at 100%. I printed a template from a magazine online, and compared it with the print magazine I have, and although I set it at 100% scale, it printed the template smaller than the actual magazine. How can I print my templates...

  • Re: Pretty quilt tops, unfortunate fabrics: HELP!

    Thanks for all your feedback! I've never made a quilt with mixed media, so to speak, so I didn't want to create a mess that I couldn't find my way out of! I'm planning on finishing the quilts (at least some of them), and raffling them off at church. Proceeds will be benefitting a camp...

  • Pretty quilt tops, unfortunate fabrics: HELP!

    Hi, all, I'm new here, but I need your advice! I acquired through a lady at my church a bunch of quilt tops pieced by her mother. The fabrics are pretty enough, but they are, sadly, a mixture of cottons and polyesters. I'm not quite sure if I can use an all cotton backing or if I should aim for...

  • Prairie Points

    I had my Kansas Troubles Sampler quilt machine quilted and the quilter forgot to leave space around the edge to add the prairie points. Can I still add them and use a binding on the back side? Any suggestions? Thanks!

  • Removing chalk marks from quilt

    I used a chalk marker by Hoechstmass to mark free motion quilting designs on my last quilt. Now I can't get them out. I have tried to wipe them off, washed the quilt 3 times (the last time after pretreating with OxiClean), and it is now air drying. What else can I try? Alcohol had no effect. Neither...

  • Need help with monofilament thread

    Help! I would love to hear from people who have used nylon monofilament thread. I am using it to quilt a wall hanging and was doing fine until the last couple of blocks. I'm getting "bird nests" on the back as well as loops of the monofilament on the back or places where the bobbin thread...
