Machine Applique Advice by Monique Reed
You may find that the homespuns just don't have a high-enough thread count to not fray when manipulating edges. You are better off trying a fusible applique (no turn under) with some sort of stitch over the edge. Monique KD wrote: I need some help with the plaids and stripes quilt that I...

Quilt Tree by Nurse Ratched
Based on your limited explanation, I expect you've been dragged into participating in the fabric version of a chain letter. Many well-meaning people pass these on to others they know. Bottom line: unless you're at the very top, the math doesn't work. Ever. 4x4=...

Holiday quilting project by Eyren
Well. Next Friday we fly off to Canada. (Calgary, Edmonton, Rockies, maybe Whitehorse). What to do? I am still HQ my KS star medallion quilt. It is on a three pole frame and I am a little over 1/3 of the way across. Would it be feasible to baste the rest and take it to quilt on the plane? ...

New Way of Binding by Kathy Applebaum

Book review needed - Patchwork Quilts Made Easy by Martha in IN
Mardi, I have this book and would say that it is very appropriate for an intermediate quilter. While not a "learn to quilt" book, it has some fairly easy blocks, i. e., 9 patch, log cabin, and such. It also has appliqué and blocks appropriate for using templates, (fan quilts). I haven't used it,...

Enchanted View quilt by Queen of Squishies
Have any of you ever made one of those Enchanted View or Through the Garden Gate kind of quilts? Can you tell me why she says to quilt it AFTER you put the black wrought iron gate on it? Seems like it would be better to quilt it first, then put the gate on top. Karen, Queen of Squishies

Book Reviews by Patti
A little while ago, someone was asking if there were any Book Reviews which gave honest opinions about the books. At the time I did answer with the thought that it might be on the Quilt University site. I have now had time to check my 'thought'. Sure enough, there they are! I'm pleased to have...

question from the mathmatically challanged by Shawn
OK. I want to make a type basket weave quilt and I can't figure out how wide to cut the strips. I don't have a pattern, just trying to make something I saw hanging in a quilt shop this summer. I can't go look at it again because it's a 2 day drive away! I'm using 3 colours (D,M,L) in...

Acrylic Extension Table that's a box?? by Elena
Hi! I was wondering if any of you have or remember the manufacturer of an acrylic extension table for the sewing machine. This one is not just a table, but a real box that you lift the lid (which is the extension ) to get at the contents. I've seen those from Dream World and X-Actoblades...

can stamps be used on fabric?? by julia sidebottom
You will want to use a 'fabric dye' ink. JAF does carry this as well as many craft stores and Rubber Stamp stores. I Rubber stamp on fabric all the time. One of my favorite ways to rubber stamp onto fabrics is sitting the stamp face up against velvet. Iron gently and the design comes out on...

Wee Village Blocks by susan kraterfield
I'm charmed! I'd never seen these. Thank you so much for showing them to me. Maybe *this* is my next lap quilt for the family room. As for your question, I think it "depends". There are lots of ways to applique; the real trouble will be if you choose the wrong way for *you*. If you're leery,...

quilty hug gift by Ann Adamson
I guess I don't, but I just didn't want to do it if she wasn't OK with that. But, she said OK, so here's the URL to my photo album, and you can see the pretty HUG quilt at the bottom. http://photos.yahoo.com/annadamson At least, I *think* this qualifies as a HUG. But nonetheless, it's an amazing...
