  2. Help. When washing quilt colors bled into white edging

    by , 05-25-2017 at 05:04 AM
    My spouse came home with a recipe for getting the yellow out of vintage quilts by soaking in hot water mixed with 1 scoop of biz, and one scoop of oxyclean per gallon of water and to soak for 48 hours. I followed the recipe exactly but have found now that it's been rinsed thoroughly twice the red color blocks in the quilt bled and the dye where the reds were touch the white and other colors in the quilt has transferred to other areas of the quilt. How do I get these new red stains out with out creating ...

  3. Looking for a pattern, won't quit till I find it. The pattern is called Picnic Party

    The designer is Mari Martin, the last I can decipher anyone having it out there was Connecting Threads. Since then they have pulled it and is nowhere. From what I have read during my search, Connecting Threads is not very helpful on the subject, (from others who have tried to get it.)

    I am curious to know if anyone has it to copy or sell. It can also be viewed on Pintrest with the search words Picnic Party Quilt, I would sure appreciate any assistance from any of the wonderful quilters

    Most of these have so many variations - many of them quite easy to do.

    I do not think that anyone can compile a "complete" encyclopedia of block patterns. It seems like someone is always coming up with a variation of an old pattern - or giving an old pattern a different/new name.

    If one wants to use graph paper for doodling with the LeMoyne star, I've found that if I

    I am seeking help in identifying the age of a quilt. I believe the pattern matches the Seven Stars or Seven Sisters pattern.
    The quilting is extensive---amazing-- and looks like what I found described as feather stitching.
    Sadly, there are some stains and wear, so evaluation will drive the issue of conservation choices. I need the help of ladies who know quilts.
    It is possible that it came from a Georgia family.
    The fabric looks ...
  6. Pf after sewing machine

    by , 05-14-2017 at 06:18 PM
    I have seen a Pfaff Ambition Essential IDT machine for sale and wondering if someone has experience with it and is it reliable? I have never had a Pfaff and I would like a wider throat machine for quilting. Apparantly this one is 8".
    Also Thankyou for the responses re quilting a Labrynith Walk quilt.

Size:  1.04 MBLocal Guild Mystery Row BOM. 9/2016-5/2017. Given one or two block patterns each month. Our choice of fabric and block size. Just had to be in a row. Appliqué was our choice also, from quilt magazine (not sure but think McCall's quilting). Added ears to Bow tie for bats, pieced tumbler for candy corn, appliqué stem for leaves, and fussy cut Halloween motifs for square in a square. Fun to make.
