• Re: 2015 English Manor MQ Downtown Abby

    [quote user="ls2116"]I thought the mystery quilt patterns were free to members of QCA? [/quote] This MQ did not originate on QCA so it doesn't belong to the site. It is a privately owned pattern therefore it must be purchased like any other pattern you would get in a quilt shop or store. Ebony Love is running this MQ and she owns the rights

    Since the MQ hasn't started yet I really don't know. And I decided that I would wash and dry it. I'm hoping I'll be fine but my LQS has the fabric line and I can get extra if I need it. I will measure it and let you know about the shrinkage if there is any. It was the easiest way for me. I think I will also be ordering the backing fabric

    I purchased a kit from Fat Quarter Shop. I like the Team Carson colors the best. Lots of blues, browns and reds. My favorite colors. I signed up before the price was that high. I'll be doing this MQ. Last year's was i little different as Andover didn't get the fabrics out in time to start the quilt. So even Ebony didn't have the fabrics

    Thanks so much for the update Diana. I surely hope that some day she will be able to be that happy person I grew to know on retreats. I don't do Facebook but if you do contact her please let her know I think about her often and continue my prayers for healing and peace.

    [quote user="zoetc49"]I see my SS is not on here and I noticed Jacy has not posted in sometime. [/quote] Zoetc49, I much prefer the site I've found along with others but I'm sure that if like me there are obligations to be met, like SS, those people who have left will be reliable. My box is ready to be sent too. And I enjoyed making

  • Re: state a Row by Row

    Got an email from Zebra Patterns that was quite terse telling me to read the paper that is included with the plate. When you wash you need to use very gentle soap with no phosphates. Exact wording follows: "They are washable in gentle cycles with non-phosphate detergents." So I guess you should make sure to follow their directions. Guess I'll

    Erin, I don't remember if I sent you plates or if we were going to swap but at this point in time just keep what I sent. Let's just say it was a present from me to you. I surely hope that things are better for you know and that you too will have a happy holiday season. Merry Christmas.

    [quote user="Judy T-Bellingham"] Because of my own experiences with swaps over the past few years, I won't participate, or host, another one on QCA.[/quote] I agree wholeheartedly, Judy T.

  • Re: cutting up yardage

    Dawn, when I'm working with larger pieces of fabric, I usually iron them folded selvage to selvage and then roll them on my 6 x 24 ruler so that I can manage them better. This is also how I store my fabric. After I wash it, I iron and roll it on my ruler, slide it half way off and fold the whole piece in half. If I'm going to cut it right away
