Isn't that a key hole? Jenny Doan has a tutorial on MSQC.
I love the colors and pattern they used!
I love it, great job! Keep sew happy.
These are online that I use in California and the businesses are all over.
thats just a few and it's fun shopping online but once in awhile it gets me in trouble.
have fun sewing
Not sure how well I can explain this but here's what I have seen at my LQS; after finishing the quilt squares the sash as you normally would using 1/2 inch seams. Due to the bulk hey press open rather than to one side. Then the interesting part, they quilt the batting and backing material rather than the usual quilt sandwich. To attach the backing/batting to the quilt top they stitch in the ditch but only about 3-4 stitches going forward, then reverse 3-4 stitches using the smallest size stitch possible. When finished, you honestly cannot see the tacking stitches and everyone wonders how the quilting was done.
Thinking back, 1/2 metre or yard is classified as legal document, and pass as regular postage mail.. In long run piece at a time will add up.. Then ask for gift seal on envelope so border crossing amt to declare will be reduced. Some open a bank account in Canada, as long as you leave a certain mthly amt in account it might help reduce...
www.etsy.com/shopbluecranequilts/shop are online, with good prices, but keep in mind the shipping costs, US exchange, cross border, weight distance, ask it delivered by Canada Poste as lesser cost.. Good luck!
I use thousands of bolts to buy a lot of my fabric. Also a place called fabric4less but you have to buy by the bolt and the shipping is like $16 but by the time you average the price of the yardage (16 yards) its a really good deal. I also buy from 5bucks a yard, connecting threads and on Ebay. All of them charge shipping till you reach $30 or $40 then its usually free. good luck!!
wow, love this. and all details. I want one..
be glad you don't live in Canada. Our shipping is expensive, if your shipping is $5.00 there, here would be $15.00 or more. I on line shop from Connecting Threads, and they do ship to Canada.
I have them all on a page in my blog. You can find them all there in one place. http://www.quiltingboard.com/blog5639-custom12.html
If you scroll down on the 23 PDFs thread you will find all 23 of them. If you have any trouble just send me a pm and I'll help you.
Nancia if I remember right you should be able to look lower on that thread and you'll find the others. I'll go check to be sure tho.
Love your quilt, excellent color matching, the red agains black just makes it great touch.
I shop A LOT and many different places but really try to find the free shipping or anything over $35 is free. Something like that
Fabric.com has a huge selection. Some very cheap $4 - $5(don't know the quality) to $9 - $12
Rhonda, were you able to get all 23 on the 10 weeks?
I would use the one inch hexagons. That would give you enough fabric to turn over which would make it a little easier to do. I don't have a 1.5inch hexie to try but I think that might be too big for the size of your strips.
I use a number of online stores. Try Stitch-N-Frame--they have weekly specials. Sometimes great fabric for $5 yd. I also order from Whittles. Get on their email list--they get in new fabric every once in awhile, but I have bought great fabric from them for $5yd. Neither site charges outrageous shipping fees and I am always very happy with selection and quality.
They're beautiful quilts.
You did an outstanding job on your colors, appliqué, piecing and quilting! LOVE THEM!
I have a stand alone embroidery machine which I used for more fancy quilting (feathers etc) in blocks, then 'normal' machine quilted the rest. Also use it for patterns on table runners, baby quilts etc. It just makes a boring quilt special I think.
