Tip Tuesday–3/25/2014

Here’s some helpful information I’ve stumbled on while following quilt spots on Facebook or reading Blogs.

Caring for Your Quilts – All People Quilt share on their website some helpful information on cleaning & storing your quilts.


Just how Big should I make my Quilt?  Quiltmaker shares some valuable insights about this dilemma in a reprint of an article from “Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, Volume 3” which was released Summer 2011.  At the end of the article you are able to download this information in a PDF.

QNNTV.com shares a free video, “Help With Design Rights: My Quilt or Yours?” in which Mary Fons gives some information about legality issues such as copyright, use of patterns/designs, etc.

APQS shares tips for solving Tension Issues.  APQS is the maker of long arm quilting machines and therefore their point of view is not for sewing machines.  But it has some good points.  I have always heard that adjusting the Bobbin Tension should be the last thing you adjust.  My service tech has advised me not to change the bobbin tension unless everything else doesn’t work – Re-thread (top & bottom) or change thread (it may be old), change the needle, or adjust the upper tension.

The 24 Blocks Blog, a new online magazine for people who love to quilt, shares information regarding  Quilt Care – How to Mend an Old Quilt

Happy Stitching!
