Rotating cutting mats

Posted on February 16, 2014 at 9:04pm 9 Comments

Question for all - my friend is wanting to get a rotating cutting mat while they are on sale at CT. She was wondering if the 12" one is sufficient or if it is worth paying the extra for the 17" one. What is your experience? My thought was that you couldn't trim a 12" block on the smaller one but I don't often make blocks that large, they are most frequently 8 inches.
Thanks for your help!

Rotary blade sharpeners

Hi, does anyone have a review on a rotary blade sharpener?  The blades are really expensive here so I was wondering if they did a good job or not.

Thanks in advance!

Machine quilting table

Good morning,

I woke up waaaaaaay too early this morning and in my boredom, I came across this really interesting way to make your kitchen or dining room into a machine quilting table:

Basically you build a new leaf for your kitchen table, but include a dropped box for your machine so your quilts have plenty of…

Love/hate relationships

Posted on June 24, 2010 at 6:33am 13 Comments

Good morning everyone!
I was thinking about how much I HATE cotton blouses this morning as I was ironing up a nice white cotton blouse for work today and then since my iron is right beside my sewing area I started thinking about how much I love to fondle my cotton for quilting. I don't mind ironing when I'm piecing but really don't like ironing clothes. Hmmmm... do I need a shrink to work through this or do I have QWU friends that are like-minded?
Have a great day
Sherry

I wish you all a very happy mother's day. Here's a reminder of how precious every moment is with your family:

The article is about my friend Tamara and her family on her last Mother's day today. I always called her a 'firecracker' because she was so energetic and lively. She will be dearly missed by so many… Continue

I have a older bro lives NE Calgary, he was fed up with living MB. He had no work and moved there to find work.. As an accountant it took him time to establish in Calgary, now he loves it there, found himself some people to visit. The country he likes. I get leary at any huge city..

I bought Connecting threads blade sharpener the lower price one, works for sharpening, the casing sharpener sits in may not last long it's made of plastic. As for cutter mats, I bought a few on sale really good price, but found they peel and chip faster than higher price ones.

Thanks for the nice comment on the DWR quilt, Sherry.  DD is pretty excited about it, which makes it all worth while.  I'm looking forward to working on something else for a change!

You are welcome, you did a great job on it.  Both of the ones I made are gone.  One was auctioned and the other I gave away!!  Just wish I had a steady enough hand to do the ying and yang's in the center of each square!!

Hi Sherry,

Looked at all your quilts!  Great work!  You have been doing a lot of baby quilts etc.  I love that little baby in the blue sleeper.  He or she?  I assumed he.

Did that dog claim your Autumn Tints Quilt?  I love the strong diagonal with the white squares.

Me again Sherry.  Connecting Threads is a great place to buy kits.   They are not too pricey and they are overly generous with the fabric they include.  Shipping is not a big deal as it is with some US companies.

Next time you come south - give us a shout.

Hi Sherry - I didn't want to comment on the main site so opted to write to you personally instead.  It was Earthly Goods where they were so darn rude.  That is not the first time. The first time I put it down to someone having a bad day but twice is more than enough.  There are too many other shops where I enjoy shopping.  Lori's Country Cottage in Sherwood Park is one, Quilting Essentials in St. Albert, there is another one on 137th Ave at Manning Crossing but the name escapes me. 

If  you have a good experience at Earthly Goods then by all means shop there.  This is why I don't like to name the shop in a public forum.

I had a look at your quilts while here - well done.
