I think I am in love

I do have a ton of fabric in my house - let's just say my stash is huge, but then I would be lying because Clint likes to sell everything we have. Every now and again a line comes out that I have to have! So, a lot of begging, and later Clint finally agreed that this lovely bundle is all mine!

Reunion by Sweetwater

It's a must have in my book. I plan on making my boy's quilts out of this fabric line - wish me luck on getting that done at some point. Hehe!

Okay - here are some answers from my last post - I would like to write everyone back individually, but it will be best for me to just answer here.

Q: Where did you get your ruler?

I got it from my long arm dealer --A-1
I am going to look into getting some for our site - stay tuned!

Q: Do you stitch in the ditch before you quilt your sash?

I stitch in the ditch every seam- I believe quilts look better if you do. Also, stitching in the ditch allows me to do a lot of "traveling" with my thread. So the answer is yes, I do stitch in the ditch before I do the sash decorative quilting.

Q: Do you spritz or spray water to get your purple marker out?
Do you wait until the whole quilt is done?

I use the disappearing purple marker, but I am a little impatient and I want to see the results of the quilting right away. So, I spray water right after I am done working on a block and wipe the excess water with left over batting pieces.

Q: When do you mark your quilt?

I mark the quilt as I go - I don't mark anything before the quilt is on the racks and ready to go.


I hope that covers the questions asked that I didn't get a chance to answer. Oh, one more thing - I used 2 layers of Hobbs 80/20 batting on Thelma's Civil War quilt.

That should about cover it. Phew!

Okay - enough with the questions and answers - check out these three new lines in our shop!
