  • TIP: Prevent unraveling fabric in washer

    Trim the cut or torn edges of fabric with a pinked edge rotary cutter. I keep a pinking blade in an old cutter and use it for this purpose. Really cuts down on the unraveling and stringy tangled mess in the washer. Nancy P.

  • Re: How many completed quilt tops among your UFOs?

    Hello, Kathleen. Would love to see a picture of your daughter and son in law's quilt when you finish it. Does your reference to quilt frames mean that you hand quilt? Most of my quilts get done by machine either by me or a long arm quilter. I do have some hand quilted quilts including one UFO - a bunk bed quilt that was begun about 20 years ago

  • Re: How many completed quilt tops among your UFOs?

    Hi, Pat. You are in good company. I've been quilting for about 21 years and have so many UFO's it isn't funny. Even though I do finish a lot of projects so many many more have been put up in the closet and into bins. If I could stay home without interruption (i.e. no work, no chores, no cooking, no internet, no shopping....) for about two

  • Re: Ladies, I need your advice!!

    Dear Tammy, I have made several t-shirt quilts. Have used light weight fusible interfacing (non-woven) and not the knit stuff. Protecting the ironing surface and following the mfg. directions, fuse the interfacing to the wrong side of the roughly cut out shirts. Cut them to size after fusing the interfacing. The steam and heat will fuse the interfacing

  • Re: Did you work on a quilt today?

    May I join in? Been home with a nasty cold but not too sick to quilt. Washed and ironed fabrics today and have been piecing the first two months installments of the Civil War Tribute Quilt BOM. Tomorrow I hope to finish the 2nd month blocks and wash and iron some more. I need to machine quilt a charity quilt and a challenge quilt so I plan to keep busy

  • I am new at this blogging thing.

    Hello, out there! This is my first blog. So here goes nothing. Been quilting for about 20 years and it is a big time passion (obsession) with me. I have worked at 3 shops over the years, first in Atlanta, Georgia and now in Montgomery, AL where we currently reside. I love to pet the fabric and buy it too! The shop where I work now has an awesome website

  • Re: Work space for layering your quilt?

    A friend of mine purchased a large piece (about 4 ft X 8 ft) of insulation foam board at a home improvement store and covered it with white flannel. It is light weight and she stores it behind an armoire in her bedroom/sewing room. It is about the same size as a piece of plywood but much much lighter/portable.

  • Re: Work space for layering your quilt?

    I purchased 2 of those white plastic top tables (can buy at Sams, Costco, and maybe other places) that have collapsible legs and set them up in the garage. I usually make lap sized quilts so 2 tables are sufficient. I tape down the backing with heavy duty masking tape (from Home Depot) and layer the quilt. I hate using pins to baste because that "kills"

  • Re: Show Us Your Kitties and Dogs!

    A couple of our cats (past and present) have been "quilters". They lay on the ironing board and the cutting table and of course on which ever project I am working. Momma Cat especially enjoys "helping" me to machine quilt. Pictured is Momma Cat on our bed and the sideways (sorry) photo is Tomcat and Bobcat (grand-kitties) who found
