I second the 8 at a time method. I use two 10" squares to make 4.5 unfinished hsts. After cutting but before opening, I trim any extra from the sides. It really speeds up the trimming if done before opening. Very accurate method - only thing more accurate is paper piecing methods such as triangle on a roll or similar. That is good if you only need a couple.
Love the colors! It's beautiful on that bed.
I'm an experienced piecer and found this tutorial awesome. Can't wait to try it! Thanks for sharing!
Wool batting is more expensive, but its worth the extra cost. Heirloom 80/20 is thick, but it pulls apart so easily. So if your quilt ever gets washed, that batting will disintegrate so much faster than a cotton or wool. Iíve been long arming for five years now and Iíve all but banned my customers from bringing in hobbs.You can tear holes in it just by looking at it! You always have the option of using two layers of warm and white, which I guess would be the same price as wool.
Use Sharon Schaumber's method with 1x4" boards
I'm too old to crawl too, so I scooch instead, it's a little bit less painful. I've tried sandwiching quilts on a bed or tabletop, but bending over the project from a standing position hurts my back. I wonder if it would help to get a cardboard upholstery fabric tube and tape or tack the top, back, and backing along one edge to that, then roll it up as you go along, basting or spray adhesiving the layers together, I wonder if the tube or dowel could help to keep the three plys smooth.
I actually prefer a bit of wrinkle in my quilts though. I just made a block last night tring the quilt as you go method (QAYG), and I'm not sure I like the look of it so much. It is so flat!
great quilt love the pops of color
What a beauty, she will love it...
Joy, it's gorgeous!! I love everything about it. I hope it brings much cheer and comfort to your friend.
I forgot to put Robert Kaufman Christmas Grandeur Tree
Craftsy has a really pretty Xmas quilt kit on sale right now. Good luck
You do gorgeous work! I hope to be that good.
These are quilts to daydream by! I love the texture on the silver one! I'm inspired!
Which charm pack did you use? I like this very much btw.
mmmmmmm, yum! love the curves of that tree, and the field of poppies, silver birches, fall foliage, in short, your entire display! lovely work! as usual, i love what you do!
They are all beautiful! Very creative.
My mother use to make her starch (Argo was name of starch) in a large pan using hot water. She would put things in the starch and then wring out. She would roll them up and place the pieces in a damp towel and put in ice box.
Wow! This is beautiful. I think the white around the blocks is a nice touch and really makes them stand out. Your quilting on back is gorgeous.
I have both granite and honed marble countertops and like them. However, the granite we got has some mica mixed in; it looks nice, but it susceptible to chipping. And the marble on our island had a lemon sitting on it for some time and it left a mark. We have some of the quartz in our bathrooms and really like that too. If I were to redo a kitchen, I would definitely choose quartz for durability and ease of care. Even in the 5 years since we did our kitchen, they are able to create very nice patterns that look very much like real stone.
Hi quilter7. I had my kitchen remodeled last year we put in Quartz counter tops & they are beautiful.
