January 7, at 6: Good luck and happy sewing!
Have you made a T-shirt quilt? I have found sites that will make one for you but too expensive for me. I have lots of time but no experience quilting. Any tips or knowledge you can pass along would be greatly appreciated. When it comes to T-shirt quilts I have a couple tips.
Next, some of those shirts may be jersey or a combination of jersey and cotton. For more info on sewing with stretchier fabrics, check out this post on quilting with jersey. I looked up a pattern and their Queen size was 88 x 88? I love your Triangle Jitters and for some crazy reason your largest size is Twin where clearly the pattern is screaming it needs to be on my Queen size.
However on the pattern info it says it comes with a cheat sheet to make any size. FYI I enjoy your Instagram feeds! Hi Lisa, The cheat sheet is mega simple because it helps you convert the half square triangles into any size. You can use the cheat sheet in the pattern, or any of these three options found here — https: Hi may name is Marilyn and I was trying to find a place that could make me a quilt for a christmas gift this year.
I am not sure where to even begin though and was hoping I could get some ideas and quotas? The quilt I was thinking of is a boise state broncos quilt.
Hi Marilyn, I only make custom quilts that are based on my own quilt designs. If you send me an email, though, I could give you a list of other quilters who may be interested. I want to make my son a quilt for Christmas. I have never made a quilt before, so I am not sure what to do. He has a queen size bed, but he is also almost, if not close, to 6 feet tall. Hi Patricia, I recommend piecing the quilt yourself and then hiring a longarm quilter to quilt it for you.
You would send them the quilt top and backing fabric and then they baste it and use a huge sewing machine to quilt it. The first few years I quilted, I exclusively hired longarm quilters. I still love sending my quilts to get quilted.
There are so many good ones out there too. This quilt is an example of an all over quilted pattern done by Crinklelove — https: This Stars Hollow quilt, quilted by See Mary Quilt , is an example of what custom longarm quilting can look like. I am a beginner, and I signed up for a class where we are making a specific quilt. I chose it because the quilt looks like it uses several skills I need to know. I know I could add more border to the sides, but I think it will be perfect for the sofa in our RV, so all is good.
Thanks again for your very helpful chart! That is a quilt for the long and narrow! Looking at the top quilt in the picture at the top of the post, is there a name or a pattern to it? Thank you; I very much like your website. Last night at the quilt guild meeting our guest speaker, Tim Latimer, was talking about one of the quilt tops he rescued.
