    Made this pinwheel quilt top (OMG what a chore LOL) and now I need to pick borders. The block in the sashing is black with pin dots, and I have a black with polka dots for the #2 border, but can't go straight to that - thinking a solid black. Opinions?
  5. T-shirt quilt

    My sister's husband, who was a marathon runner, passed away after a short, courageous battle with cancer. I made this t-shirt quilt from some of the t-shirts from his races. I hope it brings good memories to my sis.

  6. Sashing help please

    by , 02-11-2013 at 07:24 AM
    I'm on my 2nd quilt. This one I'm doing on a diagonal. Not sure how to start/do the sashing. Ie - sew the strips with the corner blocks, do diagonal rows, and then come back and add in the other direction? Any advice helps.
    I'm attaching a pic of my Ipad quilting app where I designed it. These are my fabrics.

  7. best fabric glue

    by , 02-10-2013 at 10:10 AM
    Help...I was piecing my late mother's cross stitch into a wedding gift for my neice. I cut the cross stitch fabric a little short and need to add some of the aida cloth back on. I was able to do that with the wonder under, but would like to seal the aida fabric with some fabric glue that won't discolor the fabric. What is the best glue for this? Thanks

    I make mine by sewing strips onto flannel squares - quilt as you go method, than when I have enough blocks I back it with whatever fabric I have in stash and make a rag quilt. I do not have a lot of scraps as I cut my fabric everything is evaluated to be either squares or strips, so I have it seperated right away. If you do fair amount of quilting you should have a lot of ...

  10. Getting my very own sewing room soon!!!

    by , 02-09-2013 at 06:41 PM (Ten minute block, or faux cathedral window)
    Right now I'm in a one bedroom apt. So I have a little cabinet, a table with my machine on it, and my cutting mats, and rulers near by. I'm grateful that I could manage that in my small space. I'm moving next month into a two bedroom mobile home, and I can't wait to get my sewing room set up which will be a work in progress. I'll keep you posted, with some photos. SO EXCITED!!!!
