My Pet Peeve is when I visit many quilt fabric stores, I see a cute quilt or quilted project that inspires me, I ask, Do you have the pattern for this?
90% of the time they don't have the pattern anymore, or it is no longer avaliable, ........Grrr*
So why do they display such darling quilt projects that we can not make?
Has this happened to any of you?
I've even asked for the name of the quilt or project, they say, they can't remember or it was in a magazine
When I see a pattern in a quilt magazine of perhaps a wall hanging and I like the pattern and would like to make a queen size (for example), how do I figure how to much more fabric to increase for the queen size quilt? Is there a formula? Also, I have seen calculators for quilters, would that show me how? Does anyone use one of those?
Example: Wall hanging:Size 52 x 52 Fabric requirements: red batik 7/8 yd; cream texture 1 1/8 yd, etc...
Queen Size: 80 1/2 x 80 1/2 for example...How

Here are instructions for a great fake fur scarf, that looks really easy to make and sensational finished. And some fake fur cuffs for your gloves. These would make super cute, quick gifts.

I'm looking for someone to piece quilts together mail them to me and I'll do the quilting, send them back and you do the binding!
$.60 a yard!
How is fabric measured? This really helped me out, and wanted to share with all of you http://lovetosew.com/fabricmeasurement.htm
Each year my Christmas fabric stash and scraps grows larger. Sometimes I use fabric that is too thin or stiff to made bags to "wrap" my gifts in and always use left over strips as the ribbon. I do not like to fold table runners or toppers so I roll them instead. Keeps them from getting creased and looks lovely under the tree. Provided I posted correctly there should be a picture of both the runner before and after wrapped.
I have made these for Christmas gifts no pattern just using what I have
each one personal for the girl I hope they like them
