  3. Fabric boards we make in our basement and selling them now!!!

    by , 01-26-2012 at 10:18 AM
    Hello quilt friends, This is a wonderful place to see all the beautiful quilts and ideas you all have. I've been quilting for 15 years and became hooked the same day. Well, all these years of buying fabrics and having stacks of it everywhere started getting to me. So I asked my dh to make some fabric boards for me. He did and they are wonderful. I told him other quilters would love these too. I never saw him work that fast for a long time, he has been retired for 6 yrs. and has finally found ...

  4. Chalk powder for a Pounce Pad

    However, the suggestions are good that the machine should be cleaned out after using as the powder will collect in the mechanism of the machine.

    I use a unscented dryer sheet to clean my iron. Place the new unused sheet on a piece of scrap fabric and run your hot iron over the sheet. Do it several times.
    Then run your iron over another piece of scrap fabric to clean the oily residue away. Works like a charm.

  7. New (to me) Tool I Found Helpful for Flying Geese Type Blocks

    As I was preparing to figure out how to lay tape on my machine so I'd have a straight edge to run the corner of my little sqaure along as I sewed it to the rectangle, the instructor suggested this

  9. A Bucket of Strips

    by , 01-25-2012 at 02:41 PM
    Quite a few months ago my husband and I saw an ad in the newspaper for an estate sale that said "Fabric". Well, that was an understatement to say the least. I've been to fabric stores with less fabric than we saw here. It was the home of a fabric designer who was quite alive and well.

    I won't go into everything we got there (a LOT) but there were several large storage bins full of strips. She was apparently making baskets from some of them. At $5 a bin -- and that included ...

  10. Help needed

    by , 01-24-2012 at 05:54 PM
    I was asked to make a quilt for a young man who recently returned from Desert Storm. His mother gave me quite a few khaki camo shirts, a few with patches and his name on them. She also gave me one pair of his pants. I also have six photos of him while overseas. I want to make about a 65x75 size quilt, or thereabouts but can't find a pattern that pleases me that I can use the shirts, pants and photos on. I know I will have to purchase more fabric, but what color? Does anyone have any good ideas ...
