Glue binding the Sharon Schamber way. 1 Reply

Someone asked for photos of what glue binding looks like. First I want to offer the disclaimer that binding with glue does not make the process faster. It probably takes about the same amount of time as hand stitching the binding. But I like it…Continue

It is a LOVE--HATE relationship!

Posted by Nancy - Cat Lady (TQPM staff) on October 21, 2017 at 4:23pm 2 Comments

I LOVE the accuracy I get when I use larger pieces of fabric to sew patches together to make certain shapes required for some blocks.

I HATE all the extra time spent trimming them down to the correct size.

Did I mention, I LOVE the resulting size accuracy?

As I said, it is a LOVE--HATE relationship!

Encouragement and Support

Posted by Bonny Peters (PeePs Rep) on July 6, 2017 at 3:30pm 2 Comments

Having a supportive and embracing community such as Pattern Pastiche is an added bonus. No matter what, this group makes lemonade from everything. The…

Aliens from Side-Track

Posted by Nancy - Cat Lady (TQPM staff) on April 28, 2017 at 4:44pm 5 Comments

I wrote this as part of my entry in the "April 2017 Quilting Goals" discussion group, but thought I would also make it a blog post here.

My husband and I have a running joke: "I am often abducted by aliens from the planet Side-Track." We have determined I must be a very good candidate for what-ever experiments, or other learning experiences, they have in mind. Inevitably, I start out to do something, and find myself completing other tasks along the way. I eventually do get my original…
