  • Re: Quilters Dream Puff

    I began doing hand needlework and sewing in 4-H in the late 1960's as a young child and quilting in the mid-late 70's as I began to prepare to go to college. Back then fabric was cheap and I could make my own comforter and rugs for my dorm room cheaper than I could buy them and we measured with a tape measure and a yard stick using templates

  • Re: Quilters Dream Puff

    I have been a reader of the site more than a writer, but once in a while it is fun to chime in. I actually teach sewing and quilting lessons, so trying new things helps me to answer questions for my students as well as for friends who ask. I'd like to say I get to quilt for fun, but mainly I make samples for my classes, but even then they have to

    I'm so glad you asked that question. I just saw an ad for this batting and I have not used it either, but it sounds wonderful. I trust the brand, but as soon as I get to try it i will and then i will follow with my thoughts.

    I finished the quilt from hell today and returned it back to the person who pieced the top. Cindy of course giving them away counts as quilting. That is the best part. I really like your quilts. They are simple, yet have a personality that syas let's go have some fun. I should have taken pictures of my quilting, but I decided it would not be nice

    Kathy, I use matching thread, but if I run out, I also use gray or a color close to the same as the fabric. I do custom sewing and teach lessons so I usually have odd colors to use up and this is how I use up my extra thread. I try to match the bobbin thread of my quilts to the quilt back to hide my flawed stitching. This works well. In answer to the

    Yes I worked on a quilt today. I am binding a twin sized T-shirt quilt and I finished it's partner throw yesterday after picking out all of the quilting and redoing it. It turned out beautifully and I am now looking forward to finishing the big quilt. I also finished the alterations on a shirt for a friend. I am looking forward to a whole week with

    I have been looking for them as well. I have not seen them at Hancock's or Jo-Ann's which tells me that they are probably only available through specialized quiltshops and not just a local fabric store. You might try Keepsakequilting.com. When I can't find it locally, I usually have very good luck with their selection of fabric. Good luck

  • Re: new to quilting

    Cheryl, As a retired Navy wife I want to wish you good luck and healthy travels in your move. I lived in Virginia for many years and it is a beautiful place to live and a dream for quilters to design, share and just hang out together. I hope you find as much joy there as I did. As a place to start, you already have connected with a group of wonderful

    I do this too. I have also discovered that the box that holds individual potato chip bags that we buy for our lunch boxes is great for bigger blocks or projects as well. Debbie

  • Re: Professional Quilting recommendations?

    I'm not in New England, but I use Keepsake Quilting's catalog. If I were looking for a quilter in New England, I would check on their website or call them and ask who they might know in your area, or ask at your local fabric or quilt shop if they have names of quilters. Word of mouth is usually the best advertising in town. People will not recommend
