I have a good size stash of kids cordury approx 3 yard pieces x 45/54 wide. I'd like some ideas for using this into quilts for charity. -- Mammie
I am new to this whole posting thing, so I am not even sure if I am asking this question in the right place/format. Has anyone had an experience, good or bad, with Gingher 5" scissors? In working on my Grandmother's Flower Garden I cut a LOT of hexagons. I have already worn out a great pair of titanium scissors and decided to splurge on the Gingher. I have only used them once, but am not impressed. I do have other Gingher styles and love them. Any input? I am trying to decide to see if they

Linda doesn't trim the corners of the flying geese triangles in the usual way; she cuts the middle layer only leaving the 4.5inch squares intact as a guide for easy piecing so that if the triangles aren't perfect it doesn't matter much.

I am making a memory quilt and started printing some pictures on one brand of photo sheets...then I ran out of that brand and used some Printed Treasures brand that I also had on hand.

The perpetrator was killed. My BIL was blinded in one eye and lost the other. He has had a long road but is doing well. The government gave him a seeing eye dog and apparently that has helped immensely

I LOVE dresdans!!! Somehow I just don't think I could have to many dresdan quilts in my collection. I made this using my Big shot pro die cutting machine. I cut all the dresdans pieces from fat quarters and the tiny bit of leftovers I cut 2 1/2 squares to make the corner blocks. I had the chartreuse fabric in my stash and truthfully I loved
