    Franky's border is a continuation of the burgundy spider sashing fabric and the outer border is black fabric with gold spider webs. Still, no spider web fabric has been used twice.

  4. Year of cleanup

    by , 01-26-2013 at 12:31 PM
    Over the last year I have cleaned up my sewing room, finished 5 quilts, and 2 tops, gave away fabric and started a quilting group for those in need. I can now see the floor and every tub is labeled as well as organized patterns in 3 ring binders. It was a lot of work and I didn't think I would get it done but it was worth it.

  8. Cutting Machines

    by , 01-25-2013 at 05:28 PM
    Has anyone used the Sizzix big Shot or Big Kick for cutting fabric. Both machines are supposed to take templates from other machines and do the job with fabric. Would I be better off with the AquQuilt Machine which is more expensive or will the Sizzix's do the job. I would appreciate comments from people who have had experiences with the machines. Thank you.
