On the frame July 7, 2017

Worked on this delightful quilt today! Pieced by Carolanne, the fabrics are Carolyn Freidlander, the thread is Superior Omni in Silver, the batting is Hobbs 80/20 and the pantograph is “Water World” from Willow Leaf Studio. Hand guided quilting.

As Pooh would say, “think, think, think” while tapping his cranium. My friend Susie was working on a really cool one (follow… Read more »

A Word (or two) About Quilt Backings…Part III

Squaring up – what exactly does that mean? Well when you load a backing onto a longarm frame, if the fabric isn’t’ a nice square shape, there will be areas that droop and as I quilt your quilt, these can and will cause puckers in your quilt backing. If I catch it in time, I can sometimes pull and yank and get it to work, but if I don’t catch it there will be a pucker in your backing. The easiest way for me to square you backing (which you can do yourself) is to tear it. There are some… Read more »
