681  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Quilt Fabric on: November 22, 2006 08:45:09 AM
I'm more of a Jo-Ann's girl myself, but the fabric at quilting shops is sooo much prettier! So, if you can afford it go to a quilting shop but if not then stick to Jo-Ann's or Hancock.  Skip the Wal-Mart.  Have you tried quilting with flannel? When you start out it's nice because the pieces don't slip when you're sewing.  You do have to watch out for stretching.

I'm so glad to see someone else involved in Project Linus! That's fantastic.  Not that I ever make a quilt for no reason (the requests are backing up!) but I have given them a couple.  Welcome!

On a similar vein, and if you like pin-up-y cowgirls, check out this Alexander Henry fabric (which you can find other places than ebay): http://cgi.ebay.com/A-Henry-Cowgirl-RETRO-pin-up-yellow-vintage-fabric-1-M_W0QQitemZ130050687213QQihZ003QQcategoryZ71206QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

This is so easy! I've scanned my photos in (or used the digital image) and then print it out on paper designed for iron-ons.  You can find it at any craft store and sometimes at Office Depot or Staples.  Have fun!

that's awesome! i thought about doing something like that for my grandma, but she went blind before i got around to it...

Have you thought about doing a textural quilt?  Maybe different blocks of chenille or flannel or velvet?  Do textures that remind you of things you did together, like if you went to her cabin in the woods then find a rougher fabric that feels like tree bark.  That way, she can still experience the memories!

ps - for those of you who aren't comfortable printing straight to fabric, you can always use printable iron-on paper.
