  • Re: Hot pad sizing

    [quote user="Karla"] I've made both big and small...use the big ones a lot for large family dinners as the hot stuff seems to be in bigger casseroles or platters. I've actually contemplated making a table cloth sized one for those holiday dinners...at least it is on my "to do" list. [/quote] Maybe I should plan on making

    Your tablecloth idea is really neat! Easy to care for and incredibly useful. No more burns or scorches on the table!

  • Hot pad sizing

    I'm making a set of hot pads as a gift and was wondering if 11" would be too big. I have a few sample quilt blocks and thought I might put them to good use by making them into hot pads. The squares are 12", but I'm sure that I'll need to trim them down a bit before binding them. I also thought that this would be a good way to start

  • Re: Was wondering about sewing machines at Walmart/Sears?

    I somewhat have to disagree that if you buy from Walmart that you have nothing in the way of service. The machines come with warranties, so it might be a good idea to check and see how far away the nearest authorized service center is from you.

  • quilted vs. tied quilts

    I'd better start this by saying that I don't have a clue about finishing a quilt...either quilted or tied would be a learning experience for me. At this point, all I've done so far is make 2 tops and have started on the third. Workspace is rather limited, but I'd like to make a few lap quilts for holiday gifts. I understand that a tied

  • Re: Did You Work on a Quilt Today? #8

    I haven't actually sat down at the sewing machine yet, but I've been writing down what I need to cut out in order to finish blocks for my Attic Window and pinwheel quilt tops. Probably cut today and sew tomorrow...and the next day. :) Cindy

    [quote user="MNnancy"] Cindy, your block turned out very nice! Great points! (That's a compliment most beginners love to hear!) It's fun to hear from so many others that they, too, keep buying Craftsy classes without even starting most of them. LOL I thought I was the only one silly enough to do that! [/quote] Thank you for the compliment

    [quote user="Karla"] I'm still not good at the name of these traditional blocks, but I think it's a churn dash or something like that. [/quote] That's the name of one I just found a few minutes ago, but I wasn't quite sure.

    [quote user="Nana"] Cindy OUCH.... how did you break your shoulder. Hope all is well now. [/quote] Something woke me up from a sound sleep and I jumped out of bed, took a couple of steps, and I think I tripped over my own feet. LOL I have most of the use of my arm...the only thing I can't do is put my arm behind my back like to scratch
