  2. Stumped looking for aqua and beige/brown print

    by , 05-18-2013 at 11:24 AM
    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.

Only tried it for a short time , but I think I may stick to straight line quilting. Is it something that gets easier? Or is it one of those skills that you either have it or you don't?

    Just finished my Diamond quilt using Kaffe Fasset fabrics. Trying to decide what to use for backing. This is for our CA King. Yes, it's big! I love sewing diamonds!
    Thanks for looking.

  6. Wedding quilt - signing fabric

    by , 05-16-2013 at 08:05 AM
    I am making a quilt for a friends wedding. In stead of using a guest book, she is going to have her guests sign a piece of fabric. I will be incorporating these pieces into the quilt. My question is, what type of ink, pen, crayon should I have her use? I have fabric paint pens, but I am afraid they will be too messy.
  7. OLD long arm...

    by , 05-16-2013 at 05:09 AM
    I am looking at a 20 yr old gammill long arm. Would it be a good investment for $3000.00? I have seen TinLizzie but what I have seen, would be a mistake. The best in a new one under $10K is a Baby Lock. I want to not spend so much that I have to quilt for other piecers, then I would not get to have fun doing my own.

    I just met a gal who had taken a class in woodless color pencils. They had used them on all kinds of fabric and us fabric medium to set the color. Does anyone have the instructions as to how to do this?
  9. Two colors - two 4-patches

    Determine the size of finished block you want, then add 1/2" to allow for the 1/4" seams. In my case, I used 4-1/2" blocks that resulted in two 4" 4-patches.

    First step: Select two contrasting fabrics, place right sides together, then

I chalked it up (mostly) to being in a quilting slump. But I am also a quilter that does not have young children in my immediate circle of family and friends and thus I pass by on all the kiddie stuff.

    As for the inspiration part, I have found that
