I have done several quilts where I appliqued onto squares and then quilted by stitching in the ditch, but I want to do a quilt for my neice or nephew to be that has applique like a mural. I want to make a noah's ark quilt. I plan on using satin stitch to applique. My question is, should I applique the pieces to the background and then quilt, or should I applique and use that as my quilting. Is there a right way or a wrong way? Any help or suggestions appreciated!
I've been sewing some collars for my dogs and some of my friends dogs, and I want to find some good high quality hardware for them. I would prefer not to buy online, but will if I have to. Where can I find good quality buckles and d rings? Can I buy these things at a hardware store? I've been buying the ones I find at my local fabric store, but I question the quality, and the selection isn't that good. Thanks for any help!
More specifically...i'm now looking for wienerlock buckles. Anywhere online or in person can I find these?
So I'm been practicing and trying to master different techniques...last week(or maybe it was a couple of weeks ago..who knows anymore) I mastered sewing buttons and buttonholes on my machine. This week....it's zippers! Now i want to make sure I learn to do it properly. I"m going to practice, but ultimately I want to sew a zipper in a skirt that has a liner. Well I want to do a skirt with a bubble hem and tulle inside it to make it a bit more poofier! so if anyone knows of a good tutorial that will help with a skirt like this let me know! Thanks!
