quoate-anna, your fabric is so crisp and fresh feeling..not sure what you did but I LOVE it..quote
joanelizbay I lay it on the ironning board, spray it with starch and let it dry. Then I iron it and proceed to cut and sew. I feel it helps me in acuracy.
Enjoy the tea dye fabric. Besure to post your Civil War quilt creations. It is nice to share a comon interest and love.
Your DIL's quilt is stunning and a labor of love. I trust she enjoys it.
Anna, she only saw it before it was quilted in May and hasnt seen it since its finished. I know she will love it. I gave them one for Christmas a year ago in black/red/beigh and she wanted a lighter color one for summer/spring....ooops I missed that by a couple months! LOL. She wants my one with the Civil War panels but its MINE...however I did buy 4 more North and South panels just in case I get the urge to make her one! LOL. Let me know if there is a Civil War Block Swap anywhere that you hear of! I might try that starching trick..it sure makes for good feeling fabric!
Pink Lotus and old Cat lady I recieved both of your fat 8ths...Thanks..
Yosemetisa...I will be sending you another fat 8th tomorrow Saturday
Areinn is oly fat 8th missing. I will start making blocks in October
What is a side swap?
A side swap is where someone posts that they are willing to swap on the side with others. I believe that is what it is.
yup, that's it. I wanted more blocks so I posted in all the boom 8 threads if anyone wanted to do an extra block swap w/ me and I'm exchanging F8s with some of the ladies in the other groups.
