  2. signiture quilt question

    by , 11-14-2012 at 10:36 AM
    Could someone tell me the difference between freezer paper & parchment paper and which on should be used for the back of the squares on which the signatures are written? I understand it is to be used for stability when signing and is later peeled off, is this correct? Also will there be any staining or coloring effects on the fabric from using either type of paper.
    Thank you

  4. Can you name just one?

Hence, I have so many UFO's and projects going. What about you? Do you have one special pattern that you like to make? Or do you think variety is the spice of life?

  5. Want to buy small pieces of "Kukko (aka Melody Miller) Typewriter fabric

    by , 11-13-2012 at 12:37 PM
    ty)I'm looking for small pieces (as long as each piece has an entire "typewriter" on it) of the Melody Miller (Kukko) "Typewriter" fabric. It's outrageous to buy by the fat quarter, and all I want is some of the typewriters to cut out, but if anyone has pieces a bit larger, GREAT.

    Thanks!

  8. Roses For Dale

    I searched for a pattern for large prints and found one called "Leading Ladies'. I quilted a straight stitch half an inch apart on the large red blocks, stitched in the ditch the rest and hand quilted the small roses to make them "pop". Hope she likes it.

    She likes roses, hence the fabric.
