1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Mixed washed and unwashed fabrics on: June 23, 2015 05:38:52 PM
My two cents:  I've mixed washed and unwashed in quilt tops, but I wash in cold water to help keep the fabric dye from getting everywhere.  I would probably wash the backing since it's such a big piece - you'll notice the shrinkage more.  Also, it may all depend on how much quilting you do.

I was inspired by another project I saw on here and made a couple of these for mother's day.

Thanks for looking!

I really like how you stitched the binding.  It emphasizes that it was made by hand.  Great job!

Thanks for the link!  It wasn't what I was looking for (an awesome why to finish off a quilt, though!), but it did lead me to what I was looking for.  Thanks for the help!  I ended up just easing around the inside corners which turned out pretty good.  I'm a self-labeled binding-nazi so I would have liked the corners to be more crisp, but I'm happy with the result.  Here's the finished product: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=438649.0

Of course I can't find the video I watched initially, but here's an even better one that shows how to get crisp inside corners. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4VGNcDoI-R8

Here's another recent finish!  The material was donated to our quilt group and I was able to use every square of the layer cake without have to buy additional material.  It was also fun doing the hexagon pattern - thank god for youtube!

Nothing fancy here, but it's finished!  I love crossing things off my to-do list!  This one's a demo for a t-shirt quilt class I'm going to teach at our local YMCA.

Thanks for looking!

The quilting looks wonderful!  Great use of the negative space.

I love this quilt!  I saw a similar quilt in one of my mom's quilting books years ago and I've always wanted to make one.  I found the perfect backing fabric for it, too: mainly light blue with red and white flowers.  I machine quilted it in straight lines along the red squares and used a stencil to do the hearts in red.  Some of the hearts are a little wonky and I was going to fix them, but then I washed the quilt and the red bled a little and now I'm ok with the hearts being a little off.  Thanks for looking!

10  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / binding inside corners for hexie quilt on: February 28, 2015 03:40:37 PM
Does anyone know a good strategy for sewing the binding on a hexie quilt; specifically the inside corners?  The top and bottom of the quilt are straight, but the edges are jagged.  I found a tute for doing the outside corners (120 degrees), but I haven't found anything for the inside corners.  Any ideas?
