I have been saving all the materials to make a Crazy Quilt for which I have been longing to start, and I believe I have all I will ever need. My biggest problem is I am unable to find a pattern, a template or anything having to do with a crazy quilt. You would never believe all the quilt magazines and books I have and not one of them have clear instructions to make a crazy quilt. Can you help me? I will pay for any instructions etc.

    Thanks for your input.

    I hope this helps others... As I now feel that the solid is the way to go when it comes to the disappearing 4 patch.

  5. "Pick up sticks" quilt pattern

    by , 02-28-2013 at 06:15 AM
    I recently (last month) saw a cool "pick up stick" quilt as I was searching through "easy quilting patterns" on the internet. This one consisted of Vertical and Horizontal lines, not diagonal lines. I am still trying to find it again without much luck. Most come back with diagonal lines. any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

  7. finishing the quilt

    by , 02-26-2013 at 01:58 PM
    [QUOTE=evelyn5269;5890331]When I make my quilts I bring the backing forward, make perfect corners and sew it but my question is do you quilt first then bind or do you sew the binding and then quilt. I sew mine on the machine usuall stitch in the ditch and always end up with at least a couple puckers on the back. Any suggestions.
    Thanks,

  8. Stabilizer for ties?

I've deconstructed them and need an iron on stabilizer before I start cutting and piecing. Does anyone have a suggestion as to the best kind that uses low heat to fuse? It has been many years since I needed fusible interfacing, so I don't know which to purchase.
