• Re: I am sick and tired of being sick and tired!

    Sorry to hear you are feeling miserable. Even if you are not allergic to it, pollen is so bad this year that even those without allergies to organic materials (tree/weed pollens) are having a difficult time which then is turning into infections in throat and sinus'. I do not have organic allergies but everything else bothers me (chemicals) but pollen

  • Baby bibs for my nephew

    I made 2 matching bibs for each nephew using scraps from a baby quilt (Boats) and my niece loves them. I used large snap on one and sewn on velcro on the other. She likes both as they are fast to attach and very easy to carry and wash. Great little gifts with left over materials. I made others using flannel on one side. Easy and fast.

  • Baby quilt for a new nephew

    I enjoyed making this quilt for a new nephew. I have made a few baby quilts but don't like "baby" quilts. They don't stay babies long and I want them to enjoy them for a while. I wanted bright colors and a boat theme. I made a quilt for his older brother but I forgot to photograph it.

  • Re: Was wondering about sewing machines at Walmart/Sears?

    I grew up with Sears Kenmore and they are great. My mom always has one step up from what I am using. She now has electronic Kenmore and it is a dream with tons of decorative stitches. I love Janome and Kenmore but mine are older and still going great. Shop around and try some before purchasing because they are like cars, all different. Good luck!!!

  • Re: Using Press-N-Seal for Quilting designs

    I'm so glad all you quilters think this is a good idea. I love the quilt I made and it lays on my bed now. The Press-N-Seal worked so well. Nice to know it is working for others and you are coming up with great ideas to improve on and make it work for you. Keep on sewing!

  • Fall Quilt, My 1st Free Motion Quilt

    This is my last large quilt (76 x 97 Twin). I have had so much fun making it. It was from a quilt kit but I just loved the design and colors. It is going on my King size bed, laid sideways so end design shows on sides of bed, just in time for fall. I used Press-N-Seal for most of the quilting and quilted more than I ever thought I could possibly do

  • Using Press-N-Seal for Quilting designs

    This was the best tip I have received this year. Use Press-N-Seal for top quilting. Just place on design you want to use, trace with permanent marker, let dry, stick to area on quilt you want to sew and sew right through the Press-N-Seal. I am nearing the end of a large quilt and am so happy with the results. I wanted to free motion for the first time

  • Re: Did you work on a quilt today? #4

    I love my metal stilleto. I lose things cramped as I am on my sewing table so I put a sky blue quarter inch ribbon through the ring on the end of it and hang it around my neck. Just made it long enough to reach the sewing area I am working on but not long enough to pierce my thighs. Hahaha

  • Re: Cleaning your quilt

    Hi Quiltinnonie, Use the bathtub. You have to use mild soap. I discovered using Orvis Paste years ago. You can find it in lots of quilt shops but I buy it cheaper at the local feed/tack store. It is very mild soap. I use it in the washer with most of our lightly soiled clothes. It is much safer for quilts than Woolite. I Just bought my 2nd jar. The
