1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Help: Needed supplies for beginners? on: October 07, 2008 12:44:03 PM
I'm starting to get into quilting and need some help with the basics. What's the difference between all the different rotary cutters available? What size ruler and mat should I buy for cutting basic squares and bricks? I have a standard needle that came with my Singer machine---can I just use that or do I need special needles?  Huh

I'm taking a class at my local quilt store, but need to buy supplies at JoAnn's because that store is way too expensive. I'll probably just end up buying some Amy Butler fabric there or on Etsy.

Thanks for any help!!!  Grin

UPDATE: I did it last night (with tips from ammasmama, thank you!) and it went pretty well. She suggested I use "Envirotex Lite" from Michael's...I followed directions that came with the box and it went fine. The only bad thing that happened was that the magazine cutouts I used inside the bottlecaps ended up getting that "wet" damaged look from when the resin got it wet. I think I'll try it again and try sealing the cutout with Mod Podge to protect it before I pour the resin. Still, it all looks pretty cool!  Cheesy

Blast that Martha! She went and gave me this great idea for magnets/thumb tacks using pictures and bottle caps:

It calls for clear casting resin to fill the cap, but I've never used it before and it seems to be complicated and dangerous. Any tips for something easier to work with that'll give the same results?? THANK YOU!!!

That's such a great idea! Much better than buying tons of frames.

My efficient self got up early to go buy those ornament storage totes only to find they had already sold out. Any ideas? I'm thinking I could make my own little cardboard dividers and just fit them into plastic bins I already own? Anyone know where to get templates to make those dividers??? Thanks!!! Cheesy

No, if you do a board search you'll find lots of info about it. It's a program you use to blow pictures up into huge poster size. It makes them all "dotty" and pixelated. There are lots of cool galleries showing people's results.
