505 Adhesive

Do you use this product and have a problem with skipped stitches?  Sometimes I do and I think it is because I use too much.  I'm thinking I should go to pinning, but worry that my fabric will bunch and move around on me.See More

Frantic, thou name is ...

Posted by Cat Lady (Nancy) on April 10, 2014 at 2:23pm 1 Comment

I am trying to work through a pile of UFOs that have been resting on my flannel board for ages.  A number of them are tops that I have pieced as I have been testing patterns for The Quilt Pattern Magazine as well as other designers.  So far this year I have removed and quilted thirteen items. Admittedly most of them have been table runners, table toppers or small wall hangings, but they are now finished!

Today I removed the top three pieces and laid them aside briefly so I could see what was under them.  These three are lap sized or larger and will require a larger area cleaned up on my cutting table before I can get them pin basted for quilting.

Under them I found three table toppers that had been pieced and were waiting for the appliqué pieces to be added before they are ready to quilt.  In the pile of fabric I have stacked on and next to my cutting table, I found the section that went with these three tops.  I normally do not put the fabric away until the top is finished, or at least until the piecing is done and the binding is made and the top is ready to quilt.  We will discuss piles of fabric at another time.

However, the pattern was not with the fabric.  Nor was it in my pile of paperwork.   And since this was not a TQPM pattern it was not available on my computer.  One of the benefits of TQPM, I could have gone back to the issue it was in and downloaded it again.

Frantic!!!

Luckily, after a little more digging I found one of my  plastic storage containers that had the fabric I was using to make bias for the stems.  It also contained my bias tape makers.  And on the bottom of the container I located the directions for the tops with the applique templates.

Yeah! 

Now, I just need to make more quarter-inch bias for the stems, get everything cut out, find matching thread, and then I can have a nice relaxing hand appliqué project to do in the evenings.

Question:  Do you…

In the Beginning

Posted by Cindy Mccoy (TQPM staff) on April 3, 2014 at 7:55pm 3 Comments

I have been working all day on a beginner project.  It is for the newsletter after the "Around a Star" mystery.  Boy am I all tuckered out!  And I am only half way done.  I hope to finish it tomorrow.

Batting frustrations (and I do not mean baseball)

Posted by Cat Lady (Nancy) on April 1, 2014 at 1:26pm 1 Comment

I have been trying to use up scraps of batting lately as I have been quilting table runners and smaller projects.  Today I was going to baste a table runner that measures 40" x 22".  I have a piece of black batting that would be perfect, only it measures 44" x 21-3/4".  Not enough of a difference to piece some more onto it as I will often do.

Guess this one goes back into the pile and I will have search for some more appropriately sized piece(s).

Welcome to Quilted Inspirations

Posted by Karen Rogers on March 9, 2014 at 6:52pm 0 Comments

Just finding time to share a little of what I do as a quilt designer, teacher, retreat coordinator, wife, mom and Nana.

Please visit my website http://www.quiltedinspirations.net/ and my blog http://quiltedinspirations.blogspot.com/ and check out some of my creations.  

I am currently teaching at our amazing local quilt shop Quilter's Haven quiltershavenllc.moonfruit.com. Below is the class I will be sharing. This is one of my original designs using the traditional "School House" Block. Also, is a banner I put together to compliment my quilt. Then, I put a twist on another "School House" quilt with a primary theme with a number of learning  factors, such as colors, letters, shapes and soon to be numbers. Just need to get it quilted.  Stop in at my website and blog and I hope you enjoy what I love to do! I am hoping to be more diligent in my posts and keeping you up to date with what I do.  Be sure to checkout my up-coming retreats.…

Hi Cindy

I clicked on the link for the new mystery quilt that is starting in January as instructed on the main page.  The new page has nothing on it about the new mystery quilt, am I missing something?

Hope you enjoy.  And if you are so inclined, please visit our website and see all of the beautiful ornaments we have to offer.

To Be Quilted

Posted by Cat Lady (Nancy) on October 27, 2013 at 4:30pm 10 Comments

Help!  I think I need a formula to expand the amount of time I have for quilting.  That or I need to clone myself.

I just finished another top and when I went to add it to my "To Be Quilted" list, I noticed that there are 39 projects listed before it!

Does anyone else have this problem?

About Applique

I want to learn Applique using my sewing machine but I want to learn the hand turned style using a machine to sew it to block. What is the "Best" place or "Book" for a total newbie to applique to learn? Thanx all.
