I just finished a flannel quilt and I am confused about what type of backing to use. Should I use a flannel backing or a regular cotton backing. Help!
I read a wonderful article by Leah Day who quilts with her feed dogs up. This is interesting to me because I have so much trouble with free motion and having my feed dogs down. I am going to try this and report my progress back to you'll. Here is the link for her article http://www.leahday.com/art-dropfeeddogs/
If you free motion with your feed dogs up, please let me know if you like it better than with the feed dogs…Continue
I am piecing a blue jean quilt. The jean fabric is pretty heavy and I have decided to use flannel to back it. Do I need batting or will it be too heavy? I've read a lot of things about this on the internet, but I need advice from my expert neighbors. What should I do?
I know that I am late on this issue, but is anyone sending quilts to the displaced families in Oklahoma? If so, I want to help. Does anyone have an address that I can send them to and a contact person?
I really wish that I had the time to create a quilt to enter into this contest, but unfortunately I do not. There are male quilters on this blog, so go ahead and show your stuff. Make me proud. To the women, you are welcomed to cheer. :-)
It has been a while since I last posted. All is well. I am currently enrolled in grad school pursuing a masters in elementary education. It has been 20yrs since my BS but I'm doing very well in my class. I've already taken one class and next week will be mid-terms in my 2nd class. I have 8 more classes to go. I should graduate in May 2013. It took a minute to dust the cobwebs out of my brain though...lol!

I was surfing the web and came across this website: www.quiltsforkids.org I'm sure most of you already know about this site, but for those of you that do not, check it out. You are making quilts for sick kids all over the nation. All you have to do is request that a kit is mailed to you. It's free! I got mine in about 2 days. Everything is included and already cut for you. All you have to do is sew it and then make a quilt…Continue
Got a question. How do I add words to a quilt? I've already made the quilt, but I want to add some words to it. I've thought about embroidery but I don't have an embroidery machine. I've thought about cutting out little rectangles and writing the words on it with a pigment pen and then applique it to the quilt. Painting, stamping, permanent marker.....help! Which one of these methods do you think will work best, if…
Well, I have finally finished my quilt called "Mosaic". I posted about it in December and I just finished it yesterday. I have never gone so long between quilts. I got a little bored and really busy doing other things, so my quilting…Continue
I just wanted to say, "Merry Christmas!" to everyone. It has been a while since I have posted anything but I'm on the site all the time. I hadn't been doing much quilting lately, however, today I just finished a quilt top that I call "Mosaic". The blocks had been just sitting around for about 3 months but I never had the time to get around to them, so I made time. I got the pattern out of a quilting magazine (can't remember which one), but I am quite pleased. Hopefully I…Continue
