my Fall Quilt Blocks

This is what My fall quilt look like when all blocks are done

From WildFIres in CA to Kennel Quilts...

Posted by Janet W on April 15, 2019 at 5:32pm 5 Comments

I am recovering slowly from losing my town and house in the Nov. 2018 Paradise CampFire. Changed the world for an entire county in California with over 14,000 homes destroyed.  I was lucky, in that I saved my boyfriend, my pets and too few other things from the house.  

I joined this site, as a occasional sewer that received some  kennel quilts special delivery ! I am posting here not asking for charity,  but advice - I need to replace all my sewing crafty supplies / machine/  well... everything.  I would like to ask all of the lovely folks here.for what brands and list of things I need to replace to get me started again.

Thank you, in advance for your replies.

Good morning Pattern people!  I just joined and thought I would share a bit.  I love quilting and now am into making sellable craft items for our church Arts and Crafts Group. We had a recent sale and I have many about 16 kitchen boas.  If you aren't sure what they are, google it.  Those boas were priced right and flew out the door.  Now I have orders to make more and it is nice because I can help fund some projects at the church!  Carol

Measure . . . cut . . . OOPS!

Posted by Nancy - Cat Lady (TQPM staff) on April 1, 2019 at 4:07pm 5 Comments

You know the old adage "Measure twice, cut once"?

Well, sometimes things just go wrong.

I needed to measure out 120" of fabric to piece a backing (actually I needed 2 (two) 60" lengths). Since I could only measure so much on my cutting table at one time I did the measurements in increments. I measured out 30" and placed a pin. From there I measured 30" and placed a pin. Then another 30" and placed a pin. Then the final 30" and placed another pin.

Then I decided to see how much of the piece of fabric I had left, so I measured out the rest of it. Everything OK so far.

Time to make the cuts. I go back to a pin and make my cut across the width. That is when I see I have sticking out of the edge of my "remaining" fabric.

Yup, I made that cut at 90" instead of the 120".

What is a quilter to do? I make my second cut at the 60" pin and set that section aside.

Next I find the scraps left over from piecing the top. I have a number of 2-1/2"…
