1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: what to do with tons of kiwi fruit? on: October 25, 2010 11:17:06 AM
kiwi cheesecake? that sounds awesome! i would love a recipe:)

What are food banks? We don't have anything like that here... Giving anything to Churches or The red cross is pretty complicated and regulated here... I don't think you can donate fresh fruit... (I know that you're not supposed to donate anything that goes bad quickly, so only dry or canned food.)
But more and more friends want the fruits, so maybe we'll be lucky this year and we wont throw boxes of it away:)

What is a food bank?  Hmmmm.... -- a food bank takes donations of food, canned, fresh, frozen whatever for distribution to people who are unable to afford it...

here is the link to our local one for more information  - I'm sure google can direct you to one in your area.

I third...or is it fourth the craft foam...get whatever colour you want and then spray paint. I would then make the skulls out of sculpey and attach a broach pin the the back to pin the whole thing to your shirt!
4  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Free motion? No darning foot! on: April 05, 2010 08:54:46 PM
I tired it out today with out a presser foot on a "scrap sandwich"...feed dogs down and 'pretend' presser foot in the lowered position...

...my machine takes the 'snap on feet'.  This means, without a foot attached there is still a vertical part that drops (normally to clip the foot in place).  This piece rests nicely against the fabric, holding it in place slightly but without the same tension a foot does.  Thus allowing me to remove the foot altogether and still free motion sew without the fabric 'riding' up the needle!

Worked like a charm!!  Who knew!

I am making a baby sized stacked coins quilt and I want to try out free motion quilting ... the only trouble is I don't have a darning foot...Can I just use a zig zag foot with the feed dogs down?

Has anyone been?  I heard they have fabric at a decent price but their website doesn't really explain their selection.

I'm wondering what kind of fabrics they have and what their prices are like compared to say...fabric land.

Thanks for the help!

That's what I'm having trouble with though...

knowing how much fabric to get for the "stacks" and the sashing and borders...

I guess it depends how many colours I want for the stacks....and how big the individual blocks would be I guess...

....figure out how long I want the quilt and do the math with the seam allowances....yikes...

10  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Stacked Coins quilt pattern? -- Yardage? on: March 02, 2010 01:17:46 PM

I am looking for an online pattern for a stacked coins quilt.  I want to make this for a friends wedding August 2011.

I am looking for something that makes a queen sized quilt.

I would prefer an online pattern to a magazine.

I am planning a trip to the US in a week to get fabric (JoAnn's!!) so I need an idea of yardage before I go.

Thanks for the help!
