  • Re: Online fabric shop

    I looked at your store also and liked your selections. When I buy on-line, I usually am looking for a special category or designer. I like almost anything Laurel Burch, but I also look for things like dog fabric, flamingo fabric, butterfly fabric, and so on. It'd also be wonderful if on-line stores linked fabric that would go together. For instance

    You could always back the embroidered blocks with blocks of muslin to strengthen.

    In my opinion, the flour sack dishtowels were really a lot stronger than they appeared. If you think about using them for years for what they were designed to be used for, making a quilt out of them wouldn't be nearly as stressful on the fabric! I think I'd make blocks and then put them together with '50's fabrics for sashings and such

    Not 'big' but 'bin'! One bin of holiday prints.

    I do sizes also. I use Bonnie Hunter's size suggestions with a few of my own. I have a couple of bins of 'chunks' -- pieces too big to cut up but too small to qualify for anything else--those I divide into light and dark. These are pieces that would give me, say, 4 1/2 inch squares. Of course, I also have about 3 totes that aren't cut

    OK, you've inspired me :) I know all about what a mess big dogs can make - -believe me! I have lots of 'scraps' left over from my Dane coats-- I use the cheap blankets from Walmart and can make two Dane coats out of one queen size blanket. But I still have scraps where I've cut the coat out--that'd make great pet pillows! So now

    I never thought of pet pillows! what a great idea! What size do you make them, and what do you use for your outside? I'd love to donate to my local shelter.

    I've got bins too. I found a stand up thing that was supposed to be used for screws, nails etc. and has different sized bins on four different levels. I've been using Bonnie Hunter's ideas for scraps and cutting the smaller ones down to her size suggestions. I DO have a bunch that are too big to cut but too small to call a 'fat quarter

  • Re: Keepsake catalog

    Did any of you get in on the Niemeyer sale a couple of months ago? I ended up buying about six patterns and some extra paper piecing patterns. I love her quilts; haven't made any yet, but I love the designs so one of these days! A lot of the patterns were only $2 -$4, so I couldn't resist. I guess they only run that sale once a year--it was

    Thank you all for all your welcomes and all the good things you said about my furbabies. They are the love of my life--I do have a man, but he knows where he stands :) Patti, I'm in Spokane. And, yes, Danes can be very protective over their chosen person. They are especially so over young children who belong to their family. We had Danes the whole
