I did this several times and liked the results. Let me see if I can find any pictures.

    The site also has alternative ways to change up the look a bit and links to pictures of other quilts made with this pattern. Overall, a very elegant design...reminds me of stained glass! Too nice of a pattern to not share...enjoy!

  3. Why Tri-flow?

    5 out of 6 bicycle shops I've been into carry "Finish Line" products instead of tri-flow, and claim they're better.

    Each time, I've told them I'm looking for tri-flow specifically and didn't know if the FL products are SM friendly.

    I finally found one shop that carries the oil, 2oz bottle

  8. New to sewing Batiks

    Is there anything special I need to know?
    Do I need to pre-wash them first?
    Do they ravel more than regular cottons?
    If the picture attached these are the fabrics and the pattern is Summer Porch from Eleanor Burns.
    Any hints you can give will be appreciated.

  9. When/How to Use Retayne and/or Synthrapol

    The directions for both say to use HOT water (140 degrees F., 60 degrees C)

    The instructions for Retayne suggest treating the fabric BEFORE cutting it.

    Retayne - soak fabrics for 20 minutes in hot water, then rinse

    Synthrapol - soak 10-12 minutes in hot water, then rinse.

    As far as I can tell from that info, they are NOT interchangeable.
