Fabric Adoption - Chapter 3 - Only 18"

Posted by Cindy Mccoy (TQPM staff) on July 4, 2020 at 7:52am 2 Comments

Chapter 3 - Only 18" (originally sent 2019-08-06)

We left the sewing room with its closed door for last. We finally opened that door - but not all the way. It would only open about 18".

OMG! There is an 18" path from the door to the sewing machine that is in the opposite corner of the room. The 4-foot wall of the path consists of fabric and patterns. Along the room's walls the fabric goes to the ceiling!…


Fabric Adoption - Chapter 2 - Whoosh! Thump!

Chapter 2 - Whoosh! Thump! (originally sent 2019-07-08)

It has actually started! The time has come to bring the fabric downstairs!

We removed all the fabric on, around, under, and in front of the cutting table that my FIL built for my MIL. It is huge at 6 ft wide, 3 ft deep, and 4 ft tall. After removing all the fabric, we found an end-of-bed storage bench under the…

Fabric Adoption

About 18 months ago, my mom-in-law moved to a wonderful assisted living community. We were left in charge of the house and its contents. My mom-in-law was a quilter who loved to hoard fabric. I mean, really HOARD fabric. We had a house full of fabric, all needing a new caring…


Mug Rug

Posted by Barb Nickels on April 2, 2020 at 6:37pm 6 Comments

Hello all, 

I haven't been here in about four months, I have just moved from Wyoming to Arizona.  This is my first project in my new home, a little mug rug from scraps to use at my sewing table. It's 5 X 7" so it was a small project but I have been packing the scraps around since last November.  I finally finished it! Woot!…


XL Zip Totes

Posted by Kim M on March 26, 2020 at 11:13am 8 Comments

Hello all! I'm new here. It's nice to find a quilting forum.

I'm currently working on two tall zip totes that are sewn duffle (duffel) bag style with help from the book "Duffle Bags" by Cindy Taylor Oates.

For the piecing, I used handed down old upholstery fabric pieces and quilted them together.

I'm almost done the first bag. The last 2 steps are to sew on the zipper, then the side panels. Then one will be done.

However, I now know why the instructions say to make the large…

There are so many patterns in TQPM I want to make that I have had to develop a system for keeping track.  Printing the whole magazine wouldn't make sense but there are far to many to remember which ones interested me.  No sense writing anything down as I have so many notes in so many places that I can never find anything.

My solution is to print the front/first page of the pattern and keep it in my file. Now, when I am looking for a new scrappy pattern or an idea for using strips for…
