Quillows are finished!

Now to figure out which grand daughter gets which one! Took longer to do than what I thought and I messed up the orange one by cutting an inch shorter in lenghth instead of the width ( you know how hard it is to cut fabric 40 inchs wide!)?  but I guess the 3 little ones won't really care that much or notice for that matter.…

Just a question about a Quillow????

I want to make my  2 granddaughters each a quillow (quilt that folds up into a pillow)- they live in northern Florida. I thought about using flannel both sides. Should I use  a light weight batting in between or just go with the flannel?  Any thoughts?????

Tips on how to make a hanging sleeve?

I am entering a bed size quilt in a quilt show and need some ideas on hanging sleeves. I'm looking for something quick and not permanent. What do others use? Thanks

Has anyone made a quilt using men's ties?

I thought I might make a wall hanging out of my father's old ties as a memorial and was wondering if anyone else had made anything similar. I was thinking of a Dresden plate type design but open to suggestions - any ideas????? What kind of background fabric, do you open them up and cut them or what? Thanks!

How do you remove rust stains/ yellow spots from antique quilts?

A couple of us are looking for help with stains on antique quilts. I have a quilt from the 30's that has yellow stains on it and Lauren has a quilt that has rust spots. My quilt I know is not that expensive but it came from my grandmother's house and I was just trying to clean it. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks- Robin
