Why Should I use the Studio 180 Design Tools? from Quilting Affection


When I started getting back into quilting about ten years ago, I found that I struggled with several areas. First, I was having problems with my points and corners not lining up. Then my finished quilt tops would have fullness in the centers and the borders. Second, I struggled to get my blocks to come out the right size and have everything line up for years. I tried various methods and different tools.


Then around five years ago, I attended one of the Schoolhouse sessions at Quilt Market (Quilt Industry Trade Show) and saw a demonstration of the Studio 180 ...

Where Did The Week Go? from From the Strawberry Patch...

We had loads of fun at our granddaughter's outdoor, socially-distanced birthday party last Saturday. She and her friends decoupaged paper mache pumpkins, ate treats and tie-dyed T-shirts! I can't believe that's already been almost a week ago. Time has FLOWN by this week! So, where did the rest of this past week go?This pretty much sums up the week. I'm doing ruler work on a Metro Rings quilt.

Get a Grip(py)!!! from Quiltwoman Blog

Are your rulers and templates slipping away from you? Or are you tired of walking your hand up your ruler as you cut. Well no longer! Now there is Grippy!

Grippy is made by Odif, the same company that makes the 505 Basting Spray (I love that stuff)!

So, What is Grippy?

Grippy is a non-permanent, non-slip adhesive aerosol that is a little miracle in a can. You can use Grippy on glass, paper, plastic, rulers, wood, and carpet to create a non-slip surface. Things stay in place while still being repositionable.

Pressing Mat and Backpacking from Humble Quilts

For my birthday my friend, Michelle, gave me this wool pressing mat cleaner. It has fine teeth that picks up a small layer of threads and wool.

Looks better to me. 
Anybody else try this tool? Your thoughts?

 I told you I was off on an adventure this weekend. Well, we hiked a 27.5 mile stretch of the Pacific Crest Trail starting on  Thursday. 
I grew up north of Seattle and went out camping quite a bit in the forests with my family. I love the desert, where ...

Making Lemonade from HummingBird Quilter

Calamity Strikes! I recently broke my arm. And of course it’s my right arm and I’m right handed. LOL

Since I can’t quilt one of the next best things I can do is to search the Internet for quilting topics. I came across an article from All People Quilt on organizing your stash. Of course with any thing like this, everything will not appeal to everybody. But it did have a couple of ideas that I certainly think will work for me.

Ruler Storage

The first it’s really pretty simple.

Item 21. Fill a 3-ring binder ...
