    If you starch your fabric you'll be more than tickled!!! it's a pleasure when you finger press

    I too am a prewasher! I have not had any ruined projects from bleedin' fabrics since I started prewashin'. Then I starch it till it's as stiff as cardboard.
    OK I just love your Odd quilt. I bookmarked it & am thinkin' about it very hard!

    Yes, I occasionally starch too--depends on how important the project is. I'm using some really odd, old and ugly fabrics in this so I've been skipping the starch step, I'm just depleting the uglies from my stash

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder...one man's junk is another man's treasures! That is why we all buy the fabric that appeals to us as individuals. Designers and fabric makers count on that....to sell their fabrics.

    No, I do not wash my fabrics. I do use Best Press when pressing the block of the project and Shout Color Catcher in washing the project the first time. I never belonged to 4-H or any clubs until high school...Homemakers, Library Club and Community Saddle Club. College was too busy with classes to belong to anything. Self taught quilter, who has learned a few things from QB and this group to think I have became a better quilter. Thanks everyone.

    Great haul at the shop, Honchey ... no need to justify your "gift" to your husband. After all, it was a "gift", so what could you do??

    OKSGlad ... I am always amazed at how much sewing you can fit in, amidst everything else you do!!! Yes, I made an itty bitty HITBD PP pattern for those little ones! Thanks for the kinds words on the Canada Mariners Compass Star. It was a fun one to do ... next time I will get the contrasts better. Keep looking at it as a full qult possibility and floating them in a bigger block/background, and extend those corner pieces so they meet with the next block for a secondary pattern, while the stars float. OH darn ... not another idea ... I really do not need that! Yea for your re-inherited iron!! Maybe it was an old one you had, and had given to your DS?

    Yes, a confirmed pre-washer, I am, I am! Along with Dr. Beckmann's tossed in to check for any bleeding. Second time round if it still bleeds, then Retayne treatment.

    Long weekend here ... hope for some sewing, but also hoping to attend Draft Horse Shows for two days!

    Good Morning Everyone, I am picking up my table today and I am also working for my co-worker that isn't feeling well.. I hope the rain stops 'cause I don't want to travel with an open trunk with pieces of the table hanging out.. otherwise it will have to wait....

    OK, thanks for the little houses pdf. You saved me from doing it on EQ. Anyone getting the "Snow Houses" from Quilter's Newsletter.. They are cute...
    QNS, so glad that you're cool & comfy...We have window ac's and I just discovered that one of them has a dehumidifier setting on it that works as well as cooling...I now use that setting when it's raining and it feels much better than just the cooling...
    I'm rethinking about the washing/rinse bit with fabric... I no longer have the toploading washer and I don't think the frontloader uses enough water to do the job... even with the extra water setting. I've noticed that Moda fabric does not bleed..the ones I have anyway... Time to go, have to get ready for work.

    You're welcome Honchey. Just had to download it. Snow houses look cute and fun--think I'll download them even if they are PP Thanks.

    Have all the 9P, 21 P and 49 P blocks made for the Growing up Odd quilt done. Also sewed 2" squares for a single row of border--another alternation to the pattern....One has to make it her own, right? Later....

    On the pre-wash or not question...I don't pre-wash. Like QNS I use the Shout Color Catchers and wash my quilts a couple times with those especially before giving them as gifts.

    I've been working on my nephew's quilt. I am ready to quilt the rows (QAYG) and then will add borders. There will be a 2" black, 3" multi-colored fabric, and 6" black borders.

    Carrie, that's really cute. I love the 'wonkiness'. Your sashing fabric is awesome--I can see lots of uses for that. Do you know the manufacturer? (I'm thinking 50 Fab Star sashing).

    CarrieM ... that;s going to make for one fun kids quilt for your nephew. Actually perfect, whether a "kid" ... or
    older!

    JanRN ... agree ... that just might be a good one for the stars.

    OKSGlad ... I see you are in overdrive again! Serious productivity happening with all those squares. Good for you.

    Yeah and I just got in from mowing lawn--rewarding myself with an evening in the sewing room--I have another little project to do.


    Light and bright greens like sage, lime, kiwi is the color for the Rainbows Scrap Challenge, must get thinking..... Can't work on my FFC project until I find my fabric choices. I put them in a "safe" place before the wedding and they haven't shown up yet

    Hi ho hi ho it's off to sew I go....

    Very colorful quilt Carriem, I, too, like the squiggly sashing...

    Well, I had help in breaking down the box that the table comes in and it all fit in my car..the biggest piece is 31.5" x 36". It will fit perfectly in DH's car for the trip down south.

    It's good to hear that everyone is busy with different projects.. I am working again today..co-worker is very sick with a sinus problem..she could hardly talk on the phone... As long as I'm around I don't mind helping out...

    Have a good day everyone...

    Carriem I love your quilt, great for a boy so bright and cheerful and your sashing is perfect

    The yellow warms up the purple doesn't it? Reminds me of violets and pansies in springtime.

    GD #2 has finished her sleep pants--I still can't get over the joy of watching her finish and seeing what she has created. I'm am such a lucky Gram. PS as soon as #3 gets hers finished will post a pic of all 3--#3 was barn person today.

    Did anyone else get the news that Laurie Hird has a new book coming out next year? Is anyone else up for another sampler quilt!

    HOME AT LAST; Mrs. L. N.; West Virginia


    My third book: The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt 1930s--Inspiring Letters From Farm Women of the Great Depression and 99 Quilt Blocks That Honor Them is due to be released in May 2015.

    Jeannie--I hadn't heard, but very well might consider it. May 2015 gives me some time to finish up other quilts in the meantime..

    What exciting news Jeanie and Carrie! Yes, I went to the site and read more about it. Must put that on my list for then.

    Carrie, you made a beautiful (handsome) quilt for your nephew. Like the slashing too, but cannot do it this month..we are running on savings, so its needs not any wants. Water heater broke the monthly budget. Just the facts of these days, one day at a time.

    Mirabelle, another great quilt in your tally of wonderful quilts.

    Honchey, what a wonderful experience you will have with GGS and daughter in law...visiting with you in NC. and showing them around the area.

    Everyone have a good, good day. My day wil be whatever it will be, and I will be blessed with AC that works great!
