2  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / should i cut it up? on: September 01, 2008 05:38:43 PM
i was at the thrift store today looking at sheets and curtains for fabric and came across a duvet (sp). it was half off so i got it for 5 bucks! i loved it as it was a king size (front and back all the same fabric), very soft and a nice fall looking fabric. well i got it home and looked at it really good and its a ralph lauren. there is absolutley nothing wrong with it. so my question is would you tear it up and use it or would you feel bad and want someone to use it for its orignal purpose?
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / polyester blends and quilting on: September 01, 2008 05:31:07 PM
i purchased some very nice looking fabrics at a thift shop today. one is 55% cotton and 45% poly the other is 70% poly and 30% cotton. what quilting projects would they be good for? can i use these in the same project (they do match)?  i have quite a bit of this fabric so i can make something quite large so any ideas would be apreciated. oh and there is a light, med, and dark Smiley
4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / ok the machine is threaded now what? on: August 26, 2008 07:37:26 PM
ok i bought the machine, looked at it for a month, got the bobbin in, looked at it for 3 days, threaded it, looked at it for two more weeks. today i actually sewed some stitches on an old pillow case!  Roll Eyes now i dont know what to do. i really want to quilt, but i know i cant just do that first. so my question is what is the easiest thing to start with so i dont feel like a failure on my first go? i really dont know anything, i did buy some fabric and i have a pair of sissors Cheesy i really did buy a few things but i just dont know where to start. thanks so much.
