  1. Oh I love spotting our quilt patterns 'in the wild' as we say! Your daughter picked beautiful fabrics for our Lug Nuts pattern and I love how you quilted it! I would love to share pictures of this quilt on our Highway 10 Designs Facebook and IG pages, is that okay?
  2. Debbie I have a few tutorials on my blog side bar with different dyeing techniques. I used my snow dyeing technique for this one but instead of snow used ice. I also just let the fabric sit in the bottom of an ice cream pail, no mesh to keep the fabric out of the drip water, and it turned out great!
  3. An infinity scarf has no end. You sew a tube then sew the ends together, then turn right side out to make a circle with the fabric. Im wearing one in the picture.
  4. Terry inspired me to get my dyes out again and I have been producing Ice Dyed pieces like a mad woman! I went to a retreat last week and showed the ladies ( and one of their sons) how to create this fabrics and they had a great time. The shop owner asked me to dye some more and make infinity scarves to sell in her shop for the summer so I have 15 scarves made. Oh this is so addictive! Thanks again Terry for your advice. Here is a pictures from the retreat, my latest batch drying on the line and one of my scarves.
  5. Fantastic quilting Andrea! Enjoyed all the pictures of this quilt on your blog post!
  6. If you need to do straight lines in both directions then turn the quilt. If you have to do diagonal, which I won't do for clients, you can zig zag across the quilt top to get the same effect.
  7. Thank you so much for the phone call Terry! Really appreciate all that you shared!
  8. I load the quilt so the straight lines are horizontal to the roller bars. I then just quilt back and forth, ending in the outer edge and traveling in the edge of the top fabric so the threads are not cut when trimmed. I use my channel locks on my Millie, no rulers.
  9. Terry i keep coming back to look at these fabulous dyed pieces. I looked into Susan's class but I missed the sign up. Can you tell me how they folded the design the students on the left are holding? I just love the idea of making these for a retreat I'm hosting this fall and they would make a fun project!
  10. I took the plastic off my table as I hated the laser light reflecting in my eyes! Not more problem with glare now!
  11. Ann I had my husband make wooden dividers to hold my So Fine cones. I also store my pantographs and rulers in these cabinets.
  12. I love my Alex cabinets under my longarm! I'm eight hours ( one way) from an Ikea so i use to beg friends and family to pick up one before they came to visit. , i now have four. Hope you enjoy yours as much as I do mine.
  13. Beautiful quilting Ardele! What a fun quilt to get to work on!!
  14. I was watching the progress of this quilt on IG and waiting to see the final picture! Turned out wonderful, love all the quilty texture with the feathers and curved cross hatching!
