Lovely strata Eileen. I am sure that you will be pleased that you changed those pinks. Good luck with the classes.

Looks a great bargello quilt Eileen. Are you saying you had to choose 30 fabrics? If so, wow.

Bargello is not difficult if you keep your seams accurate, and keep your maths/logical head on. Concentration is the key.

Enjoy. Looking forward to seeing your progress photos.

Festive Foliage cushion

My latest completed project - Festive Foliage cushion, designed by Kristina Brinkerhoff in latest Love Patchwork & Quilting. My kind of project - cost nothing other than my time, as all fabrics were from my stash and green scraps bin.


Thread: ticking fabric

As I understand it, ticking is a striped, close or twill weave fabric that comes in different weights. Some of it can be like a board whilst others are much softer. Think light canvas sort of weight. Hope that helps. A google search will show you possibilities.

Hi Rosemary

Made a payment to you at last! Not sure if it went to the correct account!

Sent an email with 2 jpgs, Rosemary. May be a bit bigger than I thought. Let me know if it is too big for your inbox.

Please put me down for a calendar. Thanks.

Thread: making oven gloves
25/10/2018 20:56:56
Looked at my commercially made oven glove and edges are raw inside. Personally, I would use an overlock or zig zag stitch to neaten the raw edges. I would have thought it is safer to have all layers together and quilted, rather than a loose proper lining to slip around.

Would do the same for Christmas stockings too. No point in making work for yourself for such a short period of use.

I use a tea towel, can't get on with gloves.

Wanted to play with my new Sizzix Curved Braid die by Victoria Findlay Wolfe. Made another throw for the arms and seat of my chair.

My usual autumn colours for this time of year! Front and back.

Eileen, for some reason the photos have disappeared from your thread. Seems cheap enough to me. How about £4 each, 4 x £15? You know your market though. Here they want everything for nothing, but my day group meets in an affluent farming area and they will pay much more.

Good luck.

Also, big prints don't work well in Bargello.

Hi Eileen

At this time of year I tend to think autumn colours. How about Christmas or ombre colours?

You may have noticed that I like Bargello! Look in my 'Quilts and Wallhangings'album, started in 2009. There are 2 there. Gold metallic is not a good idea. It helps not to iron it!
2017 Quilts and Things album and 2018 Quilts and Things album both have Bargello quilts in them.

It helps to have one strong colour or contrast.

Lovely blocks Rosemary. This month's " Love Patchwork & Quilting' has free templates for two sizes of Pineapple block.

Lovely items, too, Brenda. Jordan Fabrics has a Youtube video on making the wall hanging,something that I would like to try, but I hadn't thought of using a panel with a figure.

Congratulations both of you.

Second that Rosemary. I've been worried all day, but don't know if it is in the area where she lives.

04/10/2018 11:13:11
Thanks for that Rosemary. I did try and look yesterday, but couldn't find it.

I find hand basting and hemming down bindings very relaxing. Both,to me, are fairly undemanding and I use it as my relaxing/thinking time.


P.S. How is it that you can hit a quilt problem, worry about it for the rest of the day and night, get up in the morning and inspiration solves it?

Eileen, Sorry can't help. I have just signed in and it has worked. I usually read without signing in.

I think someone has been tweaking the site recently. I have had it set for years on my phone to open on the Forum page, but now it opens on the Home page. The list of Forum posts seems to be moving further down the page too.

Welcome back Rosemary. The sun has come out for your return!

Oh dear. Not mine as it is ready for posting tonight, for collection from the box tomorrow. Hope it arrives safely!

Is your paypal still s....r..?

20/09/2018 16:26:41
Those look pretty Rosemary. I have been working on mine today. Nearly finished.

Are you back home now? If so, I'll speed up the finishing.
