Another idea is to try to find these fabrics on Etsy or Ebay where people are always letting loose of fabrics they no longer need or have a use for. If you do this type the color of the fabric you want... such as *aqua fabric* (you might need to narrow search using sidebar box options.
every manufacturer has a website online where you can see the new lines they are bringing out and the ones that are currently available at stores and online. Just type the name of the manufacturer to get to sites: examples www.moda.com, or www.hoffmanfabrics.com. You can get a list of fabric manufacturers by just googling - *fabric manufactures* and a master list should come up.
luv, luv, luv all three!!!!
So glad to see you and know you are still on here.
Thanks for your reply, great idea using the colors on the selvage, I will use that!
I make my pattern on freezer paper or printer paper, make copies, & tape them together for the length I need. Then I transfer the design to Golden Threads paper using a large unthreaded machine needle and a long stitch length. Usually I staple the pattern to the Golden Threads paper before I stitch it with the machine. Hope this helps.
Recently I made a Lemoyne Star table runner. Without Deb's ruler I would never have attempted it. Her ruler is worth getting to make these perfect stars.
This is the most difficult for me, too. Here is what I do: Choose your print or focus fabric first. Along the selvage there will be a series of colored dots. Choose fabrics in those color. Presto, you have fabrics that go together. Another way is to choose fabrics from one fabric line. These are matched for you. Happy quilting.
Yah!! I think a wall hanging quilt of that picture would be excellent!!
Thanks, I am loving this.
Nicely done!!! That is a quilt a son could be proud of and keep the rest of his life!!!
lol hmmm not much here to read since 2011 hehehehe maybe one day soon huh? Just kidding I know I sometimes ignore my own blog too. To many other things to do.
Absolutely beautiful...Keep up the good work.
I'm shopping for an accuquilt but aside from the size, what is the difference between the go and the go baby?
What a beautifui quilt!! It's not often that I look at the 'blog' section of the board - but glad I did. Also liked how you posed your quilt on the diving board!!
Have a good day!
Very pretty. I think you did a wonderful job.
Love the first and last. It amazes me how someone can take a pile of scraps and make some thing that looks so planned and the colors so gorgeous!
I just posted a pic for you in the blog tab.
I just started doing FMQ about two months ago myself, don't give up!!! I decided to make a quilt for my elderly mother -she doesn't see super well. So I decided to just keep on FMQ over the entire quilt. (Over a print, the mistakes didn't show at all) she loved it. THEN I went back to my little practice sandwiches, WOW I couldn't believe how much I had improved. It's worth sticking with it, I did a cool stencil with lots of feathery type stuff and a grid, I couldn't believe how much I improved. I will post a pic.
