  • Treasure box of old quilts!

    I was given an amazing gift yesterday. A box full of old quilt tops and blocks. Unfortunately they were in a cardboard box with newspaper on the bottom. There are a lot of stains on the fabric and many of the white fabrics have yellowed. Everything is out of the box but I need inexpensive ideas on how to safely store these until I can do something with

  • Re: Gifted blocks

    Thank you Agnes and Thea! I love the idea about taking a black and white picture to get an idea about the color values and placement! Cutting off points is a big concern for me or cutting too small so I lose the points. That is what I meant when I said that I didn't want to potentially ruin the blocks! You ladies are awesome!! Depending on the size

    Thank you Linda and Diana for your suggestions. I really appreciate the tip about lining up the diagonal on the ruler. The fabric is older looking, I am guessing maybe the 80s and many of the designs and combinations aren't ones I would have put together personally. However I love the look of them all together.

  • Gifted blocks

    I was given a bunch of material and in the stash are 50 blocks made up of HTSs. All the fabric is random and I would love to piece them together for a scrap quilt. The question is that they all seem to be about the same size but some are slightly smaller, any tips for making them more even without ruining the squares? Here is a pic of some of the squares

  • 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. First of all is there a name for this pattern? My HSTs 5.5" finished so the width will be 77" and the length will be 88". I am starting with the middle

    That looks like a fantastic tool and way to do HST's! I will have to see about getting that set.

  • Re: I finished my first quilt last night!!!

    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
