Large unquilted areas by shorti
I am presently designing a quilt and have a problem, and since my mother has passed away recently, I need to ask someone else for help. The quilt will have two areas that would look best if they had no visible quilting. I know that large areas without quilting will have tearing and bunching of the...

Home from US and Houston... by Bronnie[_2_]
As you may have read in Sandy's report on Houston, she and I met up for a quick lunch. Unfortunately I was really sick for the most of the days in Houston with a flu type bug DH and I picked up in New Orleans the previous week. All those festival crowds. That city really rocks at Halloween g. ...

backing fabric? by Janner
OK, probably a daft question, but what is the difference between "normal" quilting fabric and backing fabric? I know that the width is larger, so why can't it be used on the top? Janner France

batting suggestions? by Leslie & The Furbabies in MO.
When I made my mom's chemo quilt I wanted super soft, so I used Minkee for the backing. That stuff is amazing... glorious! It's fairly heavy/thick, so maybe flannel would be good used as a batting layer just to stabilize the quilt a bit??? Who are the parents of this mystery baby? Can we...

that message board by Ms P[_2_]
I'm sure some of you know which one I'm talking about. I'm beginning to feel like I'm being followed around by the mods and picked at. Today I got an "infraction" for my signature lines. I had a post removed because I called a quilt somebody asked me to repair a "cheap Chinese import." (I'll...

Ping Steven: bad weather by Polly Esther[_5_]
We get anxious about hurricanes around here - and our weather guys are upset about Alaska having a 'snow' (?) hurricane with winds up to 100 mph. Please let us know that you are not in harm's way and have prepared for loss of power and are staying safe. Polly

Book Review "Reasons for Quilts" by Edyta Sitar by Ms P[_2_]
The fabric pusher brought that book the last time we had a sew in. Most of the quilts are just spectacular but without knowing which quilt patterns are on the CD I passed on the book. I may get it some time later. Ms P "Susan Laity Price" wrote in message...

batting suggestions? by Roberta[_3_]
Old well-washed flannel. Soft doesn't have to be thick. And thick, after you quilt it, tends to get a bit stiff. And if you really want cuddly, maybe use just a layer of really good fleece on the back with no batting. Roberta in D On Mon, 7 Nov 2011 12:53:00 -0800, "Taria"...

OT Scandal! by NightMist
Now we know who Miss Piggy is _really_ pining for! The cad was married, and no doubt just led her on and left her. Proof on video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mMaddT3PoTQ&feature=related Just watch to the end. There is some serious lip to plush action going on there. NightMist

Leather Quilts by Brian[_3_]
The exercise mat that I made and showed posted a picture of a few months ago was not working so well. The reason was that there was not enough padding and I could feel the non-slip carpet stuff when I put any weight on it. I think I got it fixed, but I will not really know until we use the...

Remember QNM's Helen Kelley? I looked forward to her column. I even sent her a thank-you note because her writing was such a calming, gentle read when it was bedtime and my little mind was still racing. Give yourself "Loose Threads". It is such a precious book. Today, we had our teeth...
