  • Re: Hello from Julie from Colorado

    I live in PA, but my grandson loves FL and so he decided to go to FSU. He graduated 9 years ago and now is doing his first year internship in a hospital in Jacksonville. He spent 4 years in Phila. at Temple Med school, but couldn't wait to return to FL. Just purchased his first home in Jacksonville. I never realized that they have 4 seasons there

  • Re: Should I pre-wash my fabric

    I always prewash unless it is a kit containing small pieces, or precut pieces. I do not like that crinkled look. I also use polyester batting for the same reason. My prewashed quilts look like they looked when they were new. I serge my edges before quilting to avoid the loose strings. I often wait until I am ready to use the fabric and then iron it

  • Re: Die Cutting Machine

    I have an Accuquilt GO which I have used rarely. I want to use it more because I love it, but I sew a lot from kits and I am afraid that I won't have enough fabric if I use the GO. It does waste some fabric. I have just cut samples and it is such fun. The one thing I did cut was 2 1/2 inch strips and it is FAST--and accurate--no unexpected curves

    Don't feel bad--ours just got done today. I don't want to give away my money before I have to either. The government just wastes it and I really need it so I keep it as long as I possibly can.

  • Re: has anyone tried the Shout Color Catchers?

    I always prewash--learned from sad experience. I also like the new look when the quilt is finished and after it is laundered. The color catchers are wonderful and I rewash until the colors are no longer in the catchers. The vivid colors are the most likely to run--pastels only need one washing. Good Luck, AnnEliz

  • Re: Do any folks here sell the quilts they make?

    Hi Jenia--We hand quilt at my church--we do not make quilts. However, we charge 65 cents a yard of thread used in the hand quilting. Sometimes we add a little if the patterns are more complex and more quilting is needed. I have been told to double the cost of supplies used to reach a labor price. Also if the fabric is difficult to work with and we happen

  • Re: Hand quilting my Grandmother's Flower Garden... Help!!`

    Hi Michelle--We do that one day each week at my church---what fun. We take a coffee (snack) break at ten o'clock and then eat lunch at 12 noon. Then we leave at three o'clock. What goes on between those times is anyone's guess, but we all love it--there are only about 8 of us left out of a dozen, but we would love to have more. All proceeds
