1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: LAP QUILT 5 FALL GALLERY on: August 08, 2015 04:53:36 AM

I FINALLY finished this swap quilt at a recent retreat.  I added some blocks to make it bigger, backed it with minkee, and machine stitched the binding. It's FMQ in a loopy pattern.

I often use washable Crayola markers.  Or you could use water soluble stabilizer. I haven't done this personally, but know that you mark your pattern on the stabilizer, quilt it, then spray lightly on the stitches to remove.

Micron pigment pens are what I and many others in my guild use to label quilts

Thank you, Mare Mare for selecting my quilt to be featured!  What an honor! 

I'd like to put in a plug for the Modern Quilt Guild, which is growing by leaps and bonds.  I have made so many wonderful friends and been so inspired by their creativity.  You can find a chapter near you at themodernquiltguild.com. There is a new newsletter, and the just announced QuiltCon, next February in Austin, Texas.  I first saw the MQG mentioned here on Craftster and I'm so glad I did.

I recently used Oh Fransson's charm quilt pattern. http://www.ohfransson.com/oh_fransson/2011/08/charm-squares-baby-quilts-new-classes-and-updated-pattern.html

It was easy and quick.

I reduced the pattern when I made one. The only problem I had was the center circles weren't accurate. I ended up appliquéing the ring onto a solid background. Could have been my math. Could ave been my cutting. The wheel went together just fine.

Milk or water are common additions. If you're adding more than a couple of tablespoons, it's probably too much. And the others are totally worth the extra work.

I think American buttercream is always grainy tasting.  I don't think it's you. It's more work, but you could try Swiss or Italian buttercream.  They are sooo much better. My favorite is the mousseline buttercream from the Cake Bible.
