  • Stash Wrappings: Ideas for Quilted Gifts and More

    When you've finished quilting gifts with beautiful fabrics, trims, and notions, doesn't it seem a shame to cover them up with commercial wrapping? I say, why not use bits of this and that from your stash to make the wrapping as artistic as the gift inside? Wrapping your handmade and quilted gifts...

  • New: Our Free Guide to Machine Needle Felting for Quilters

    I used to look at my little bits of this and that--fancy fibers, silk and wool roving, hand-dyed gauze, threads, and vintage lace--and wonder what I could do with them. They were too good to throw away, too small to be used. Or so I thought, until I learned how to do needle felting with a machine. Suddenly...

  • Observe: Quilt Art Inspiration from Jane LaFazio

    Where do you get your inspiration for art quilts ? Quilting artists get asked that question all the time. Most artists I know have keen powers of observation. They take in the patterns of bricks and grids in the city, the shapes and colors of the garden, and the unusual (to them) motifs and architecture...

  • Embroidering fabric

    Hello, My first post! I've stamped some fabric (fat quarter) and want to embroider on it now to make it more complex as it evolves into a finished piece. I'm not sure where it's going but should I back it with flannel or other thin backing before I start the hand work or should I do handwor...

  • A Good Bood

    When reading a book, a person actually sees the words in their mind and feels the emotions these words evoke. This is me reading "A Good Book" running through a myriad of emotions as the story progresses from "Once upon a time" to "and they lived happily ever after."

  • Along Our River

    This 18"x23" quilt was made for our quilt guild challenge, Along the River. The river needed to enter on the left side and exit on the right side of the quilt so I chose the Hudson River as it meanders through our area of the lower Adirondacks. I enlarged a map of the river and used it to arrange...

    "Angels of Darkness, Angels of Light" - Ó 2005, ( 30”W x 28.5”T), is based on a vision that I had where I was visited by angels of two kinds, those of dark and those of light. For me, the experience was very profound, as it impressed upon me that there are lessons to be learned...

  • Re: UK members..is there a source book for City and Guilds course in embroidery??

    Hi Lorraine, I don't think that there is a C&G coursebook available as normally the coursework is down to the Lecturers! What I'd recommend you do is have a look at the Embroiderers' Guild here in the UK. Find yourself a local Branch to join and have fun learning without the expense of...

  • Re: free motion frustration!

    Hi Zoldesign, you need to place your fabric in a hoop and make sure it is very taught. This will avoid the fabric coming up and down with the needle. I assume you are using a single thickness of fabric? The only time you need not place fabric in a hoop to free motion, is when you are stiching through...
