Hi Thanks for considering the question I submitted.

No, I don't live in Florida.  I'm in NY (but from WI originally).

Some of my grandkids call me Gma, so now I guess there's one more.  How long have you been quilting?

How is your mystery coming? I got mine together, but not pressed. Been busy cleaning closets.

Sorry Gmakitty, I got busy and forgot about this post.  Shout Color Catcher is the name of the product that helps keep colors (especially Red) from bleeding into other fabrics.  Red may need extra washing though.

I see you are going to do the Mystery. My problem is in the past I made more than one and give them to my sisters and brothers for Christmas.  I have a few I made on my site. I have not taken pictures in the last year. I could not see correctly to have good looking pictures. Need to try again. I have prism glasses which help.

Thanks for caring about my eyesight. I will try to be happy I can see what I can see.

I love panel sewing. In fact I have three quilts to make, just need fabric to use for sashing and backing for two of them. the other one will be either the side panel for the small blocks of the month I am sewing.

I keep missing you on chat.  I like chatting and getting to know my fellow quilters.  We all have a common bond and I enjoy seeing what everyone is making.  I see you posted that it's very cold in Wis. this a.m.  I'm in Maine and it's bitter cold with a wind blowing, making it even colder.

I like your quilt top. Very nicely done. I like using Missouri Star Quilt Co., Crafty Gemini, and Man Sewing. CG & MS are associated with MSQC. I have made many projects with their tutorials.
In fact, I subscribe to all of their youtube channels. They each put out one tutorial a week. They are sew much fun. And subscribing is FREE. That way, you can go back as often as you like. I keep my Kindle Fire next to my machine when learning how to do a block. I just open the tut I want to follow and am able to pause it untilci am ready forcthe next step.

Keep on keeping on and have SEW much fun.
Carol

Gmakitty, I agree with Peggy.  But I might add that if your fabric is likely to 'bleed' in the wash, I would pre wash sometimes 2 or 3 times.  I am doing a red, white and blue quilt now.  I think I washed the red a minimum of 3 times.  It was still bleeding and I was also using the 'Shout Out' color grabber sheets.  I do not want the red to bleed when I give this to my son.  

I also washed the navy that I was using because navy bleeds some also.  Red is the worst.

I got a notice that you had a question about prewashing fabrics. I can't find where it was posted, and the notice was a do-not-reply email. Here's my take on washing vs. not washing:

I don't usually prewash my fabrics. I like the crinkled look in the finished quilt, so I want maximum shrinkage. However, some people are allergic to the sizings, dyes, etc., used in fabrics. If you are or the person you give your quilt to to be quilted is, prewashing is a good idea.

Just a note, I'm on Eleanor burns as Scrapquilter 48 here under another name.

Well we were snowed in Wpg beginning of week, takes least 2 days for plows

to clean enough for proper transit systems to move, and wouldn't you know it

more snow came falling down. Scrapped a good 6 inch of packed snow on my garage roof failing to do so could collapse. I lost 2lbs just cleaning now Dec. 24 it is much colder.. But my new sewing Brother machine will keep me indoors while that flu bug flies around and I see spring in no time flat.. MERRY XMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR..

The top photo is a nine patch and the bottom is the Itty Bitty quilt we just completed.  It measures 16 inches by 21 inches.
