  1. I always spritz my backing. I just slightly dampen it, not really soak it. I find that my thread drys out from the heating/air conditioning, and when I spritz that it helps loosen the quilt fibres and keeps my thread from breaking. In fact if my thread doesn't seem to be cooperating, I light spritz and the problem goes away. I do however pay attention to what the fabrics are. If there is red/or some other that i know will bleed, I let it dry before rolling. Carol
  2. Gorgeous. I put it right in my ideas folder. I've been saving ties for awhile now. I haven't been really good about it, just when someone is throwing them out I ask for them. Someday... oh,,,, Someday. Thanks for posting this.
  3. wow,,, that looks great. I may have to check into that. thanks for the tip. Carol
  4. Even worse when you just have one cone of thread and have to take it off machine to wind a bobbin. I feel your pain. lol Carol
  5. Was told by a friend who was doing WW's and hit a plateau that they told her she had to jump start things again. They said to go out and order a huge pizza with lots of stuff on it and eat the whole thing. After that she began to loose weight again. Carol
  6. Yummy, just beautiful! I love peacock's! Carol
  7. Been there done that a dozen times. In fact I've seen it sew through my finger wthout breaking too!. I hate short backings. Can't figure out why they would make these intricately pieced works and then can't figure out how much 4 inches larger is. Oh, I could go on and on......,. lol and yes, I would probably change the needle. lol. Carol
  8. I would change the thread to something that matched and then do a mini stipple or echo around the flowers. Carol
  9. I agree with Shana...... i've gotten just about every batting ever made here. I just deal with it. If they ask on the phone I will recommend a few that I like and I mention that I do carry batting here to purchase, if you want me to make the choice. I just don't understand some of the logic involved in their choices. They use quality fabric, and spend alot of time piecing their quilts to perfection and then they bring me the cheapest route for backing and batting. I really don't agree, but it's not my choice, I just work my magic and make them happy. Carol
  10. Doesn't matter how long it takes you.... Enjoy the process and quit worrying about it. You will naturally get faster as you gain confidence and experience. Relax. Carol
