    Patricia, if you're talking about private messages, just click on it and it will open them up for you.

    Patricia:

    The messages shown are those that you have sent, not received.

    When I tie a baby quilt, I do it on my sewing machine. My machine has a tie off feature built into the machine. I plan where I want to tie and then sew a small zig zag stitch with my stitch length set to zero. This way, there are no threads or ties for the baby to chew on and get into their mouth. It also is faster since you don't have to stop as often. Tonna McGee, Independence, Missouri.

    Hi Tonna!

    I had forgotten that little trick that I use, too! I don't have the tie-down on the machine, but a bartack works just as well. It is a bit faster than tying, but not a whole lot!

    Welcome aboard!

    Thanks for that great tip. I think that I might give that a try for this quilt. I like the idea that there will be no string for the baby to chew on. Thanks again. By the way I'm in Knob Noster Missouri just about 40 minutes away from you. It is nice to see someone so close on here.

    If you go to this site it has a picture and the instructions for making the block. It also has hundreds of free patterens. It is one of my favorite sites for quilting.

    I use those curved upholstering needles (ones with bigger eyes) and embroidery floss to tie my baby quilts. I made a big one for my nephew 3 years ago, and while my sister-in-law has had to re-tie it a couple of times, it has never torn or anything. It's hanging on his wall now, since he is too big for a playmat or a quilt that size. :)

    Hi Mandy,

    I use a curved needle also. Makes it easier to get through all three layers, I think.

    Welcome to our little group.
