11  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Dear Self.... on: July 14, 2011 10:31:01 AM
I somehow made some of my pinwheels spin the wrong direction.  Which I noticed after the entire quilt was pieced. Adds "charm" right?  Right?

How did you attach the scissors?

Since you have lots of curves/circles, remember to pivot, pivot, pivot.

I found the link that was most helpful when I was figuring this out:

Invisible thread often likes to unspool in one direction only, so try re-orienting your spool - if you had it horizontal, try vertical or vice versa.  I don't usually use it in the bobbin, so consider using a regular thread in the bobbin.  As mentioned above, you may have to adjust tentions.  I rarely have trouble, although maybe I'm just lucky.  I also spray baste and pin unless I'm using Minky, which is too heavy for spray basting to hold.

Thanks!  Minky is kind of a pain to work with - I hand basted the whole thing to machine quilt it.  I do love how it looks once quilted, though.

From Last Minute Patchwork + Gifts.  I reduced the pattern by about 2/3rds and machine appliqued the wheel on Quilters Only Parchment.  Backed with pink Minky and bound in Kona - charcoal, I think.  This was a gift for our friends' baby, Eleanor.

Similar to mitering the corners on a quilt binding.  Once you start playing with some bias tape you'll figure out how to make it do what you want.

I don't seem to have saved any of the bookmarks.  I can explain what I did if that would help.  I found two designs that I liked and printed them out to size.  I noted where the cord went over and under.  I cut strips and made my own bias tape.  Some sites recommend fusible tape, but I have never used that and wanted certain colors. 

I traced the knots onto my background fabric using washable Crayola markers, again, noting overs and unders.  Starting at an "under", I secured the end of the tape, and pinned it along the shape I had drawn.  Then I hand appliqued the strip. 

Where it became unwieldy or at the end of the strip, I would cut the strip at an "under" and secure it, then start a new strip at the same "under" butting up the edges. 

I hope that a)makes sense and b) helps.
