  • Re: Wash fabric or not???

    I read once where someone cut a small piece of the fabric and placed it in a glass microwave bowl with a little laundry soap and water, She "swished" it a bit, then cooked it in the microwave for 2 - 3 minutes. If it doesn't bleed then it probably never will. If you're super worried you could try and "test" a small bit.

  • Re: New here from Tennessee

    Hi KathyAnn. Welcome and don't worry - one day that UFO will call your name and you will start working on it again AND think it's the greatest thing ever. I'm pretty new/back at it myself. When I was younger my Grandmother taught me to quilt. She machine pieced but hand quilted everything. There is something to be said for creating by hand

    I know. I like the idea too and she reminded me that it goes pretty fast if you already have the strips cut!

    [quote user=" LaJuan Sukochi Lee"] there is a great book that I have on this subject. It is Scrap Therapy, Cut The Scraps! 7 Steps to Quilting Your Way through Your Stash. by Joan Ford. It is great. Gets you so organized. [/quote] One of the ladies who works at my local quilt store just told me about this book. She cuts hers into squares like

  • Re: Log Cabin Strip Cutting Tool

    Oh my goodness I'm so glad you asked this question. I recently bought tons of fabric to make a log cabin quilt and the book, Log Cabin ABCs by Marti Michell. She references rulers that she sells and I wanted to check in here first before buying one!

  • Re: Weight loss challenge! 2013 New Years Resolution.

    OK I hopped on the scale first thing this morning and I'm starting at 184.5. I'm 5'4" and working on the picture part. Ugh. Looks like I've got at least 40 pounds to lose. I'm turning 50 this year so now would be a very good time to do it.

    Well that is the plan but I will warn you I'm a single mom of 2 teenagers, work a full time job, participate in 2 BOM clubs at my local quilt shop and I'm very s-l-o-w . I do expect to get a few done though! [quote user="Spudgrandma"] WTG BAndmama, now we expect to see pictures of lots of cool quilts! [/quote]

    I'd like to lose with you all too! I've not gotten on the scale in the last few months and thrown all caution to the wind so it will be baaaaaad. I truly need to cook more healthy foods for my little family though and seriously get away from the fast food lines not only for the weight but just eating healthier. I'll hop on the scale in the

  • Re: Shopping for fabric at sales

    Well I seriously think I successfully added to my stash today. I bought almost 22 yards of fabric and 2 new books! Merry Christmas to me :-). Most of it was end of bolt and didn't have 3 yards but I did manage to get at least 2 yards of everything and them some. I bought lots of greens, yellows, and creams/tans for a log cabin quilt I want to make

  • Re: Shopping for fabric at sales

    Wow you guys are awesome! 3 yards it is then. I wish now I had gone ahead and bought some of the fabric marked down to $3 when I was there yesterday but I really had no idea and no pattern with me. Lots of it looked like Civil War era fabric and I love, love, love Civil War era quilts. Michelle I've been like you so far in taking a copy of the pattern
