But lately when I get to the bottom, it is all wavey, like 2-3inches worth of waves.

    I know the top is squared, somehow in the process of basting it, I am either stretching it too much or letting it get "taken in" too much. I just cant

    I love this board because of the relationships I have formed. Michael and I have met in person several times even though we live thousands of miles apart. He and I are like long lost brother and sister...I even went on vacation with him (and

  4. Eq7 - ?

    by , 09-07-2013 at 04:51 AM
    Good morning, I have been away for way too long. Its that working thing. I have question, can anyone give me some feed back on this EQ7 or any other software. My birthday is coming and my boys want to get this mom something. I was thinking I would love to have this software, but I keep reading how this software is not easy to use. I have only seen it at the quilt shop and not been able to play with it my self. My son thinks there should be a better and newer software- more user friendly. ...

Add 1 cup boiling water and stir well then add 1 cup cool water and stir well. Pour into a spritzer bottle and there you go! Two cups of medium starch.

    For light starch, make it with less corn starch, for heavy starch, add up to a tablespoon.

  10. Quilt labels

I asked my sewing machine dealer and she suggested I get a pigment pen and write the message on it, what do you think? Thanks ladies, for any help or suggestions.
