  • Keeping your Quilt Block in the Order you want them.

    I don't know about you but once I have finished with all my blocks and have them in the order I want them in on my quilt wall, I have a heck of a time keeping them in that order when I need to sew. So instead of the little round labels or post-its that everyone else likes to use I use the photo/scrapbook...

  • When quilting a large quilt on my DSM

    I have a small Brother machine and a limited space. I now plan all my quilts in thirds or 6ths. When I make my quilt top I do not assemble the whole quilt, instead I keep it in thirds or sixths.

  • 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!

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

    For beginning quilters and those of us without a walking foot - a very simple (and non-frustrating) machine quilting method for smaller items. 1. After creating the "quilt sandwich" cut a piece of freezer paper just larger than the quilt. 2. Draw/stencil/create the pattern to be quilted on...

  • adding to a pattern

    Would like to know if it would change the look of a pattern by adding extra batting to leafs. 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...

  • Re: Stencils for Pounce Pad

    Hi Sharon, Glad to help! I like to be thrifty where I can. I buy the best rulers and such but the everyday little things can save you enough to buy another one of the best items.

  • Re: attaching binding

    [quote user="Spudgrandma"] I'm going to go to JoAnns and Michael's later today if I get a chance. I really want to give this a try. [/quote] Turns out both my local Michaels and Joann are smaller versions and do not carry the tips. SO, I got Elmers School Glue, found a .7 mechanical...
