  • Re: Counting projects

    Well, I am one of those people Gini is trying to corrupt, although I should probably qualify that. I only work on one project at a time, but I plan the next several as I am finishing up one - does that count? D

  • Re: What is the hardest part about quilting?

    Hi Lisa, For me, the hardest part of quilting is having enough time. Starting and stopping a work in process can be very challenging, especially if I am working with a new design or pattern idea. Fortunately, I have a beautiful quilting area now so I don't have to keep moving my quilting from the dining room table - but I still have to leave myself

  • Re: Not quilting, but adding more storage for quilt stuff

    I bought a townhome 2 years ago with a huge master bedroom. I turned it into my quilting room which in previous living spaces had been the dining room. After years of eating hunched over the coffee table - I knew a quilting 'room of my own' was an absolute necessity. The room has magnificent windows for light, but not much wall space. I found

  • Re: Shrinkage

    Wow, that must have been disappointing. I usually do not prewash either fabric or batting. I just recently made a quilted wrap (bedjacket) that I put together as usual. It has warm and natural batting in it. I had to wash it to prepare it for a special type of quilting I planned to do with it. The batting really shrunk up inside. I was so surprised

  • Re: What is your favorite type of quilt to make?

    I have made both single block patterns and varied block patterns. I lean more heavily toward repetitive patterns, or repetitive color combinations which seem to make the varied blocks come together better for me. I like the look of scrappy quilts but have never had any luck trying to put one together since patterns of colors seem to drive most of my

  • Naming Quilts

    I have to ask - why do we name quilts? And have you noticed how often the names and the quilts do not seem to have any connection at all? I can understand if someone creates a new quilt block it needs a name so that we all know what it is, but naming quilts is a puzzle to me. D

  • Re: Cleaning a self healing mat

    Hi, I use a rubber hand scrubbing brush every time I need to clean my mats. It works great. I don't know about the grease mark as I have not had that kind of problem. D

  • Hi - New to the forums, not new to quilting

    Hello everyone, I have been quilting quite a while, starting out simple and gradually working up to more challenging and complex quilting patterns and techniques. I am a traditional quilter the majority of the time using hand quilting, beadwork, and embroidery to finish them. I am not one of those folks with unfinished quilt projects because each quilt
