  • Older Quilter-Get a dye cutting machine

    My mom is 72, and has been ill from infections for one year. Even when she was confused from the fever and infection, she told me she wanted to make my sister of all things, a double wedding ring quilt. Before she got ill, my father had purchased for her a double wedding ring rotary cutter templet set. Unfortunately, even cutting around with scissors

  • Small Piping

    I was trying to make really small (1/4 inch for 1/8 in bias tape) for piping. I was trying to do it via the continuous bias tape method, and found that it was just too small. I decided to cut my tape on the straight of grain. I glued the piping in the bias tape using liquid stitch. I was pretty gluey, but the piping is staying in and now I can sew it

  • Confused on a Project-Turn to You Tube

    If I am stuck on a project, I go to Youtube. I put in the quilt or item I am working on and get different suggestions on how to go about and fix my dilema from sewing experts and even some famous faces. When my mom was ill, my brother ripped his jeans. I had patch before, but this one had frayed threads. I found a woman who was a tailor on youtube and

  • Space in a Small Area

    Because my sewing and bedroom (yes they are the same room) is small, I use Command hooks to hang up rulers, patterns, tools, and other notions. Not only are they where I can find them, I also have them in easy reach. I also use furniture items with coasters so I can move them around where I need them. I have a table top ironing board that also hangs

    I got my kit, and it is a combination of templets and freezer paper. You make the templets out of the paper, double up to make them stiffer, then cut 1/4 inch around them on fabric, fold that 1/4 over as ironing, remove the paper. Can't wait to try. Pam

    I am not sure if it washes out or not. I may have to remove it just like the freezer paper method.

  • Baltimore Quilt Applique

    I am not new to applique. I have done raw edge, machine, fast turn (I think that is the term for the one Eleanor Burns does), and have read about freezer paper applique though I haven't done it yet. I got some patterns at the International Quilt Show and they were talking about a method I had never heard before, where there is applique paper and

  • Saving Projects

    If I find a project I want to do on line, I save the instructions and if there are pieces to trace to a cd rom disk. That way, I don't have all the paper around and I use my computer just to read the instructions and only print out templets or pattern pieces.
