  • Re: Longarm quilting suggestion needed

    Thank you for your sweet compliment. This is only my second quilt and if you were to see it up close you would see quite a few of imperfect points. I like the idea of a thread that isn't very visible especially if it is white going across the red and black. When looking for a person to longarm the quilt is there any questions I should be asking

  • Longarm quilting suggestion needed

    I am in the process of trying to find someone to longarm my quilt. I am leaning towards just having it stitch the ditch around each block and on each diagonal of the blocks. The blocks are 6in square. I didn't want an overall pattern because I though it would distract from the impact of the design. Also, the only thread color choices I would be

  • Re: Quilt size help

    Thanks for the input. He won't be tucking the pillows under the quilt so that isn't an issue. I just wasn't sure I wanted so much extra up and the top of the quilt that would drape down at the head of the bed. I talked to a quilting friend today who came over and she came up with some good points in that it will be covered at the top with

  • Quilt size help

    Hi ladies, I haven't posted here in a while. I have a question regarding a quilt I am making for my son. My original plan was to make the quilt 14 block wide by 16 blocks long. Now I am thinking of changing it to 14W x 15L. the reason for the question is due to the pattern of the quilt. I want the center diamond in the center of the bed and I think

  • 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

  • Re: Gifted blocks

    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
