11  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Advice for using a stretchy wadding with non-stretch top/backing. on: February 23, 2015 12:39:35 PM
Hmm I know several people that use waterproof fabric on their picnic quilts so that's not the part that's giving me pause, it's the stretchy blanket. I wouldn't use that, I would use the batting you have. Anything with stretch is just going to give you a big old headache.

I don't think there's any way to extract oils from plants without super expensive and fancy equipment (and even then I think you need a huge amount of plant product to get even the tiniest bit of oil). However, you could try drying the petals to use in potpourri or make a rose water/rose hydrosol with the fresh petals. I haven't done this before but I found a tutorial here (and you could probably find more looking for the term "Hydrosol"). Once you have a Hydrosol it would be pretty easy to make into a perfume or add to a bath!

17  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Mini Art Quilt Swap Round 8 on: February 17, 2015 11:22:27 PM
Hey peeps!

Who is ready for another round of the Mini Art Quilt Swap? In this swap, you send a mini quilt to a partner (no extras needed). The quilt should be between 12" x 12" and 24" x 24" and any shape that fits within those parameters is ok (a 15 inch square, an 18 x 24 inch rectangle, a 16 inch circle would all work). In this swap we give our partners a list of 5-10 themes that we would like our mini quilts to be made out of and a few other ideas as far as favorite colors, etc.

Here is the link to Round 7 and a few links from previous galleries:

My tentative plan is to have sign-ups begin on Tuesday, March 3rd, have them run for about a week and then have a 5 week crafting time. How does that sound? Or, if we wanted it to be sooner the only other option for sign-ups would be to start immediately and close next wednesday Feb 25th. I'm organizing a quilting retreat for 30 people at the end of next  week so I have to plan around that!  Let me know which sounds better!
