Fabric calculators? by Paul & Suzie Beckwith
I know that out there in cyberland there are websites that can help calculate yardage for quilts, but can anyone here do better maths than me?! My friend Debbie (yes, the one who fell off the ladder but is now doing really well, she gave the crutches back to the hospital a few weeks ago and is...

OT - does anyone watch..... by Queen of Squishies
Does anyone watch 7th Heaven? I teach on Monday nights and have been taping it. I've kind of been interested and following it by watching it on Tuesday afternoon during coffee break - which is now. But I just discovered there was some sort of malfunction last night and I didn't get it. Did...

New Bernina Stitch Regulator by Cheryl in Oz
Has anyone seen or tried the new Bernina Stitch Regulator? Do you know what it's like? I have been considering a new machine and while I don't have a Bernina now (a confirmed Janome user to date) I would definitely consider a domestic machine with stitch regulation. Is there any other machine...

Signing off for a while by Susan Torrens

I have also brought along a bunch of almost finished items, so hopefully I'll have lots done by spring. Still packing my sewing/quilting gear, then a...

Quilt Labels by Anne in CA
I *try* to remember to put it on before the quilting (if it is machine quilted) but often forget :-( so just blind stitch it -- like needle turn applique sort of -- by hand. Preferably before giving it away. But sometimes I forget until after it is gone. If hand quilting, it goes on after the...

Quilt Labels by Phyllis Nilsson
Thank you for posting that. Now I don't feel alone. Jan wrote: Those of you who do quilt labels.... do you put it on after the quilting? If so is it just whip stitched on?? Or do you sew it on to the backing before quilting????? Sad to say.... but in 12+ years of quilting... I have never...

Paper Piece Pineapple thing by Tricia
Okay, my mind is bouncing around ideas again (always seems to happen, I think about one thing, see something else, and the mind goes raring away that way and never lights on something too long) but anyway ... I picked up Alex Anderson's Paperpiecing book from the library. I'm inspired by the...

Frenzy by Kerensa
Was doing a sewing frenzy all day with one of my yahoo quilt groups. Had a lot of fun. Learned to make a quilted insulated waterbottle carrier (which works really well I must say lol 12 hours and I still have ice in my waterbottle lol), made a bunch of embroidery blocks to make into a wallhanging...

Talking about quilty goals by Tina
I posted on Morag's thread about my goal to learn how to do those Log Cabins and all its variations.... but part of the reason I came to this conclusion, that I want to learn how to do that, is that in looking at some of the really awesome quilts at the Festival, I have realized that they really...

I truly need your advice. by Phyllis Nilsson
I went to another garage sale this weekend. I bought six Crack 'N Peel Plus boxes of fabric on the first day, and went back and got the rest during her last hour of the sale today (17 more boxes and 12 gallon-size ZipLock bags. There was so much I have no idea how many yards I bought. I just know...

Batting - Dream Wool by Judie in Penfield NY
I haven't tried this brand, but I've used Matilda's Own wool batting and highly recommend it. It was very easy to pre-wash, no special method, just throw it in the washer and dryer. It's really warm and quilted beautifully. I got it at King's Men Quilting Supply, they shipped very quickly and...

simply quilts episode HELP! by Kate G.
I remember seeing an episode of Simply Quilts where they talk about making circles for applique (like grapes and berries). I think (if I remember correctly) that they used some kind of little plastic washers -- does anybody remember seeing this? Or has anybody seen anything like ready made flat...
