I held off on buying the aqua and brown/tan fabric I wanted to use on my next quilt, BIG MISTAKE. It's all gone!! I have called all the local shops looked extensively online. Does anyone know whether those colors will be restocked??? They seemed to be very popular. How do I find out what new fabric will be coming out from the manufacturers. I certainly hope they come back I love the spa colors.
My Mom was so pleased with her Mother's day gift, I got a lot of practice with FMQ.
I am thinking of using some blues and aquas in lines across the across, I think wavy lines would be great, don't know how to cut or sew them, would love to hear your answers and comments.
I am making my first attempt at a purse for my daughter's Mother's day gift. Didn't use a pattern, has a zippered pocket and one open pocket inside the lining. Anyone have any advice for putting on the top zipper and attaching the lining. No sure how to go about it, I have the zipper sewn into the top, do I sew the ends up on the zipper piece first?? Then attached to top of purse?
Here's a picture of the purse I am trying to make, also I have FMQ into all the square on this quilt, now I am trying to figure out what to stitch into the frames around the squares. How do you think it would look to stitch straight lines perpendicular to the frames?

Last week I saw a request for project ideas for little boys, I have a great idea, it involves a t-shirt and some appliques.
I have attached a photo of a Superman t-shirt I bought at Target a while back, I tried to get another for my other grandson, but unfortunately they are no longer available. I am not suggesting that you pirate a design that has licensing on it, but I think a big "B" for boy for a "Z" for Zack, would be great. The best part is that the maker of this
I am trying to Free Motion Quilt, I made the sherbet colored quilt, I bought one of those purple pens where I traced the design onto the fabric. WELL...I also have a purple pen that is a purple dye pen... and well I picked up the wrong pen ( they look exactly alike!!!!!) I traced the design on 4 squares and well now it will not wash out - obviously. I was making this quilt for my Mom for Mother's day. I have tried alcohol, hair spray, even acetone, I have one more thing to try, Crisco. I need to
