This is my first time so please bare with me. I have two questions. First one is when you tie instead of quilting what is it called. Second is when I am binding I don't want to call it a quilt because I am tying it when I'm almost done the binding starts twisting how can I prevent this from happening any suggestion will help and will be appreciated. I have not tried quilting yet. But I do make the whole blanket well lap tops tie them with batting then I donate them to the cancer hospital for children.
I was told for my first quilt to make would be the "Log Cabin". Does anyone know where I can download a free pattern that will explain how to and how much material I will need? I appreciate your help. Excited to get started. Any other advice or easy pattern suggestions appreciated. Thank you!!!
I am finally going to embark on my life long dream of opening my own shop. However, i know that times are trying. I hear it every day where i work. What i am looking for or hoping to get from here is words of wisdom from those on here who have had or still do have their own quilting shop.

What should I be looking for, what should I stay away from. Is it better to buy from a dealer? The one I am thinking about is used and a private owner is selling it.
I would like to join a quilt group that sews once a week, or if anyone wants another sewer in your group I would like to join. If you know of any please let me know.

I would love to hear from anyone who is currently working on a Dear Jane quilt or if you have completed one. I am just starting one. Any advice? I am hand piecing. Thanks.
Today was another pretty good quilty day. I finished my June Hello Sun BOM. Yep, another WIP, DONE. Now, I can't wait to see what the block is for July. I wonder what the finishing will be?
I finished cutting my background squares and some batting for my Halloween Crazy Quilt.
I worked on cutting my fabric for my July doll quilt. And, that is going very well. I'm hoping to get a jump on starting to piece my little DQ before the end of the month of June.

Next is D8 which has 4 small diamonds and 4 small leaves (melon seeds) that will all be appliqued but I'm determined to do another block on the big B/W that I'm hand appliqueing. Picture
