  • Prewashing and using precuts

    I want to make a table runner with precuts. I know I can't prewash them. However, the center of the table runner is fabric I had custom printed and the instructions are to prewash it, I assume because of the inks bleeding. Any suggestions on how to deal with this combination? If I prewash the custom fabric, but don't put it in the dryer, will

  • Re: Flannel questions

    Thank you Caryl Anne for the info and the article. And thank you MN Nancy for the link. I did read your article last night after I posted my questions. I don't mean to sound stupid.....to true up the straight of grain do you just match the salvages and then line your ruler up on the fold and cut your straight line from the fold to the salvage? That's

  • Flannel questions

    Hi Everyone, I have a new granddaughter coming in 4 weeks (yikes, I need to get going on this quilt). It is quite a surprise to get a girl in the mix....we are so used to boys for a number of generations! I am ready to start cutting pieces for a baby quilt. It will be made of flannel. Since flannel ravels so easily, any good tips/suggestions? Should

  • Wild and Crazy Tiger Purse

    My first attempt at crazy patch, I decided to make a purse with a photo of a tiger that I took long ago (with a film camera...that's how long it's been). I spent about 1/2 hour and 2 rolls of film on this wonderful tiger. T he tiger area at the zoo has a huge glass you look through. He was standing on the other side of the glass, looking at

    I love purples/lavender. I made this curvy table runner with some pretty purples.

  • Elephants on Parade for James

    I made this quilt for my second grandson, James. I used the July 2010 pattern on this site, Fabri-Quilt—Bear With Me, as a guide. I made it smaller than the pattern, and made the corners a bit different on the rectangle blocks. I tried my hand at free motion leaves on this one, which showed up nice on the fleece backing.

  • Re: Prewashing Fabrics for a crazy quilted purse

    Thanks for your suggestions. Yeah, I have never done anyting like this either. In fact, the crazy quilt never interested me in the least. But for some reason I have a desire to try something with it. I do love to embellish things, but really sort of hate hand work. So I don't know that all plays together...lol. I did cringe if I saw "dry clean

  • Prewashing Fabrics for a crazy quilted purse

    Ok, I am probably going to open a can of worms here... I always have prewashed my fabrics for quilting. But my next project is going to be a crazy quilted purse. I am going to use satins, crushed velvets, and brocades. The colors are purples, blacks, chocolates, creams, greens. I am thinking about not prewashing the fabrics because those brocades are

  • Re: using the salvage in a seam?

    Thanks all for your input. It will only be about 1/8" in 4 different corners, so not too bad. Probably was a stupid question for such a small amount, but I never used the salvage before. Just seems like I should be arrested or something...lol. Amy

  • using the salvage in a seam?

    I'm making a baby quilt and am literally two squares (2 1/2") short. If I cut the last 2 strips into the squares and use 1/8" or a bit more of the salvage, I will have enough. These squares are sewn on the diagonal in the corners of blocks and then trimmed, making a triangle (flip and fold). So the tiny bit of salvage does show but should
