  • Re: Piecing question

    Thank you ladies for the input. I really do appreciate it. I like the idea of working in quarters and may do that approach. I don't have all my blocks cut out yet. I didn't want to spend all the time to cut them out and then find out that I was horrible at piecing them together! LOL So, now that I know I can do it fairly well I may cut the rest

  • Piecing question

    HI all, I am working on my second quilt. It is going to be a queen size quilt for my son and I have a quick question about piecing. Below you will see a pic of the pattern I am using.

    Beth, I am beginning to get quite the stash built up thanks to the pillowcases that I am making for our local hospital. My SIL who is a quilter too has been getting me lots of fabric from a second hand store in her area plus our local Goodwill store has been very generous in their donations of nice sheets and fabric that we can use too! I really do

    Marge, Thanks for the link for the video tutorial. We have a similar tutorial on our site from the Missouri Star Quilt Company that does that same method for the borders of the pillowcases. It IS super easy. My friend Judy and I are planning on filming a video this weekend on how to make the pillowcases using that method and also one for doing the french

  • Re: rotary cutters

    [quote user="Read or Sew"] Thank for the help. Yes I am left handed, not sure why that would make a difference as both cutters say they are for either hand. I have a fiskers and an olfa. [/quote] I too am a lefty and I use Fiskers rotary cutters. I had one I used forever and loved it. I bought another one that was a bigger size and hated it

    Thank you everyone for the compliments on my first quilt. I really am happy with how it turned out and still look at it with some disbelief that I am the one that made it! LOL My daughter was sitting on the couch with her quilt last night just checking it out. She seems to really like all the colors. :) I bought my first sewing machine in Jan 2012 and

    I made fleece blankets for both my son and daughter years ago...the kind you tie the edges. I know my son still uses his all the time. He used the first a bunch and requested a second one because he got so tall and the first one was too short. :) I know she will get lots of use out of her quilt. I keep looking at it thinking "Wow! I can't believe

    Thank you Judy. I wanted something that would have lots of contrast to it and be very visually interesting for her.
