I have been asked by a friend to make her a quilted kindle cover and as I do not own one myself it is difficult to know the dimensions to use to make this. Can anyone help please :)
Does anyone know how to clean a quilt that has mold on it? My daughter's storage building flooded and a box with two quilts I made her got wet--the Dallas heat produced some mold on them while she and her new husband were in Hawaii!
I would appreciate any advice.

I'm just going to throw this out there in case anyone has been cleaning quilting closets and happens to have this in their stash.
I'm looking for the premarked background pack for C. Jean Horst's Heart of Roses quilt. I have the pattern book, but the premarked background fabric is no longer available. Because I'm basically lazy, my least favorite part of hand quilting is the marking. :)
I've e-mailed Jean and the…Continue
I just received 2 new books I ordered:
"Threadpainting Made Easy", by Terry White
"Couture Sewing Techniques, revised and updated", by Claire Shaeffer
I've only had a chance to quickly flip through them today, but plan to start reading them over the next few days. I think both will be a big help to me based on what I'm seeing so far. I'll let you know more of what I think about each of them as I read them...more on these books very soon.

I haven't had any jobs for a couple of months then all of a sudden I got several. I got two quilts to quilt and a couple of embroidery jobs. First the week started off with having to take my daughter to the hospital. She checked herself in which was a good thing because mentally she was really bad. Her meds were off and it really took it toll. Now they have changed them and she seems to be doing better. I get the first quilt on the frame and the batting is too narrow and I have to call…Continue

Any and all ideas about how to remove rust stains from pins left in fabric for too long would be appreciated.
Here's the deal.. I've been eyeballing this machine for some months. Yes I've read the reviews and even though the bad out weigh the good, I broke down and purchased it. Yup I made sure I could return it if I wasn't satisfied with it. Last nite, I again read the reviews, tips, tricks and watched a couple of videos. Seems like it will take a little getting use to but with all new gadgets and gizmo's isn't that always the case? I haven't had time to sit and even take it out of the box but that…Continue
Just discovered my entry in the Martingale quilt photo contest made it to the finals! WooHoo! I would love it if you would go over to the site and if you feel so inclined, please vote for my picture. Thank you!
I've been reading the blogs off and on today and it seems like everyone is getting things done. Not to be left out, I was up early and decided that today was the day to finish piecing my blocks together. I only needed four more to finish the top of the quilt and will cut and add just a simple border for this quilt.
I haven't come up with a…Continue
it seems that I am really on a roll right now with ideas... This bag is to show my support for the ladies' 2011 Football (Soccer) World Championships. Germany actually hosts this event this time and of course we hope that our team will win the championships for the third time in a row. This would teach the male players a lesson... ;-)
