It’s been a while since I told you about my ‘evil’ gathered quilt top and my plans to challenge a long-arm quilter with the ‘worst’ quilt top ever made. In the original article about this quilt, I referenced a discussion on our sewing chat group about some ladies warning about poor … Continue reading →
If you have been thinking about quilting you have come to the right place. All that cutting and matching might seem daunting but help is at hand… and it’s in the form of the most fabulous ‘jelly roll’; pre-cut strips in various colors from a single print collection. With … Continue reading →
My jelly roll quilt top was the first thing I sewed with my new serger. It was fun to just run strips of fabric quickly through the machine at varying widths, to get used to using the new serger – putting in the mileage on it. A nice and easy … Continue reading →
