In which I show the five quilt blocks I sewed this past week and the bit of embroidery I’m working on.

Places mentioned:
Fabric Postcard Swap

One day I will even write a post using the keyboard and some photos instead of a video camera and my word vomit… 😀

I'm a 30-ish quilter, and occasional sewist and embroiderer. I mostly talk about crafty things I'm working on, or wish I were working on.

  1. Don’t use the June Tailor fusible batting!!!!! It is awful. I only use fusible batting. Mountain Mist and Hobbs Heirloom make much better fusible batting (but you’ll probably have to order it online). In my one experience, the JT turned into a horrible, plastic melted mess. The quilt felt like it has plastic melted in the middle of it.

    • Oh really? That’s such a shame.. I was going to try it with fabric postcards too, so maybe I’ll just reserve it for that instead of chancing it with something I want to be usable.

      I actually ordered some of the Hobbs stuff from connecting threads (its on sale right now) but it’s en route (and also queen size) so when I found this JT stuff I hoped it would work out. Alas. (And oh well. Really, a table runner is small enough that surely I can manage to baste it without puckering.)
