1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: 2016 QuiltAlong, now with prizes! on: July 27, 2016 06:42:51 AM
What pattern is it? I've never really pre-cut my fabrics, I waste so much when I'm paper piecing!


Me too. I'm sure "proper" quilters would be horrified. But if I need a one inch piece. I'm cutting it 2". I'd rather waste a bit more fabric than spend the time ripping it all out.

I made a quill today. Then got distracted by pokemon and beer. But one down. Right? That's progress. Right? Not time to panic... or grow up... yet. Right?

July 25 check in

In memory Quilts I have used just about every fabric  you can name. I do not recommend it.

I've used linen as backings. And the Base fabric of dresdens. I often use flannel. Both for tops and backings.

In a tactile quilt I made for.a.baby I think i used a dozen different fabrics from corduroy to satin to minky.

 My fav combo for snuggly Quilts tho. Is a crisp cotton top with a flannel back.

I may have some off cuts of some shibori I dyed half few weeks ago at a craftster  meet up. that are JUST  right size for someone. Cheesy

I would be grateful forever! You have no idea how close I came to grabbing all the wet shibori and making a break for it... well not really, but it was so beautiful and so much fun! I don't know if you noticed, but the bag I chose from your care package bags could have been shibori - lovely blue shades.


Same techniques were used to make all those bags. I just used procion dyes, not indigo.

I got one set done yesterday at work. And the start on a second. Today i fling fabric around the room and iron on freezer paper to whatever ends on the ironing board. Smiley

For simplicity's sake, let's keep it to squares since we're sending to many.


Wait? Are we just sending fabric squares? Not finished hexies? At all? Ok. Seems easy breezy...
