  1. It's a washout"

Make sure to check your ink to be sure it says PIGMENT and not DYE. A quick tell is if your printer uses 1 black cartridge and 1 tri-color cartridge your printer does not support pigment cartridges.

    I'm thinking of adding some chenille to a quilt. I've never sewn with it before. Are there pros or cons with chenille? AND... where do I buy it?

    Amy's Quilt

    At long last I have finished Amy's quilt. It was started a few years ago at a workshop taken at Quorn Country Crafts.

    The pattern is called Around the World, Amy went to the shop a few days before the workshop and chose the fabrics, however when I came to start the main fabric that she had chosen wouldn't work in the quilt as the pattern would have been lost when cut into small rectangles. I therefore used this for the binding and to make a large cushion cover to go with

  7. My own private sewing retreat

    by , 02-02-2014 at 10:01 PM
    My DH went to CO to ski with our daughter and SIL, so I have 5 days of no obligations and am free to quilt all night if I
    want! I made up several soups and froze for them to take so have basically all my meals ready for the microwave. And our weather forecast is predicting snow on our already 1/2" of ice--so no reason to be out--sewing machine and long arm, here I come!!
