Hi Heather, I’m Sue Poser’s daughter. I bought a kit using the red whimsical Rebel Roses fabric and I made a wrong cut. I can’t seem to find anyone who has it. Can you help me out at all?
I purchased your Sizzlin’ Sixties after seeing the Opposites Attact quilt displayed at Quilting By The Bay in Panama City, FL. I teach sewing 101 there and would recommend your patterns to my new students. I purchased the book Monday and by this afternoon I had the Twirling Topper done! The Opposites Attract is cut out and ready to sew. After looking through your websites, I realized I had already made a couple of your other patterns. Thanks for the great instructions and handy diagrams. Susan
hi, i was in my local quilt shop and saw your kitchen collection pattern and the fabric the apron is made out of would total go in my house.. i was wondering where i can get it.. thanks
Wanting you to know that your cabled sweater looks beautiful! Wanting you to know that I would be glad to wear it! You continue to amaze me with your creativity! Making a baby quilt for Laura out of your Cottage Design. What a memory for her!
Your are a blessing to many!
I saw you at the SD Quilt Guild spring retreat in Huron, SD last year and really enjoyed your trunk show. I’ve been trying to keep up with your blog ever since.
I was wondering how I could subscribe to your blog? Most blogs just have a subscribe or RSS button, but I can’t seem to find that on yours.
For your Sizzlin Sixties patterns can you provide advice on how to align the triangles when sewing them together? The pattern only shows instructions for one of the blocks which is different than the one I’m making. Should I use a point trimmer? Its kind of weird because I’ve never used a triangle ruler with a flat top.
heather could you please show how to do a folded corner from the on a roll true blue red pattern. im confused . thank you
Just refer to the General Instructions on page 1, after the text “Folded Corners”.
Heather, could you please do a tutorial on folded corners, I need a visual your tutorials are so helpful thanks
Random question, Heather, but…would you be willing to share the name and brand of the butter-yellow paint color you used in several of the rooms in your house? It’s the perfect shade I’ve been trying to hunt down! Thanks!
Hi Heather! Just wanted to let you know that I had a fabulous time this weekend attending your class. I always make sure to attend the North Star Quilt Guild retreat when you are scheduled to teach. Thank you for a wonderful time!!
I found your pattern: Diamon Diva! I made the hexagon topper, now I am wondering how you quilted yours? I love the Christmas fabrics….plan to make lots of Christmas hexagons for family and friends.
Do have a pattern available called Pickety Sticks? Thank you.
i love the sanibel line. my favorite colors right now would be blacks with anything bright.thank you for all your great patterns.
Inspiring line of fabric! Love the colors.
I l-o-v-e the turquoise and pink fabrics together. They are so bright and cheerful.
I reviewed your Sizzlin’ Sixties book at the Quilt Nebraska show yesterday, and when I went back to purchase miine, they were all gone. I have now found other sources for the book. I did get the 60 degree ruler. Are you going to be at Paducah in Des Moines show in October? I sure hope so.
Also I love your new line of fabric. Are you selling it directly?
For my granddaughter’s wedding in June I made a queen sized quilt for her (love’s Bloom) from your Anka’s Teasures Quilt Book which I bought my own copy. I did use an different applique` pattern in the center of it instead of the applique from the book. It was my first quilt and I received many wonderful comments on it when I showed it at my small quilt bee.
As McCall’s Quilting had an article on copyrighting with reguards to quilting. I see that I need your permission to display it. I would like to display my quilt at our local quilt show. I would also display your name as the designer along with the name of the book I got it from so that others could find it if they wish.
It was a beautiful quilt done in a dark brown print with turquoise/dark blue/gold/off white in the border and turquoise and gold sawtooth border with strips being in assorted off white and dark fall colors. My granddaughter and her husband loved it.
Was reading about your floor escapades. One warning for you, the reason the tiles and grout crack is the flexing in the floor. If your floor is the standard 5/8 or 3/4 with the 1/4 inch luan subfloor, the flexing has not been halted. Ceramic requires at least 1-1/2 inches of subfloor with no seams falling inline.
If you indeed stapled the subfloor to the main floor and did not use the crack filler over the staples, the flexing may cause the staples to work up through the lino. Keep an eye out for issues — high traffic areas will fail first. Our son sliced his foot, it was not pretty. Crack filler should be used in the seams and over the staples (like using drywall compound over the screws/nails) to keep things smooth and in place.
I hope this floor works. Remodeling especially the remodel is never fun.
Love the fabrics and reading the blog.
Hi Heather, I am a beginner. I love fabric, color, design and well I guess that means I’m happiest surrounded by visual “treats”. So I find myself hopping around to fabric stores, art gatherings, books, the great outdoors and of course the internet to feed my soul.
Your designs have captured my heart. If you don’t mind, I am going to follow your blogs and (try) to learn more about the wonderful world of quilting. Thanks for being there!
Nice site! Thanks for sharing this info.
Love the dish passer. Now I won’t have those potholders floating all over the table!
Please enter me in your pattern drawing! Love the December web contest!
I know you’ve probably answered this question a thousand times, but here goes. I’m working on the Modern Day Diamond pattern from your Living Large book. I am on Step 1 under the Assembly Instructions. I am having a difficult time comprehending how to “Add the small triangle as shown.”
I have cut the rectangle in half. I have cut away the 1 1/4 inch piece from one of the resulting triangles. I have sewn the sashing piece to the large triangle as shown. I pressed the seam away from the sashing. And I have trimmed the block. I have laid the two pieces every which a way, but can’t come up with a way that puts both right sides together in such a way that when I pick up the fabric, I can take it straight to the machine and sew the seam.
Please help. Thanks.
Your instructions are excellent. I feel that I can do this binding now. I was so excited and have shared this site with two friends. I love your quilts. We are using one of your patterns at our guild winter workshop next Saturday. I can’t wait to get started.
I hope this is the right place to give you my changed email so I get your continued blogs, I love them.
I purchased pattern for Sweet Dreams. Have done all cutting and have started to piece together. After step 1 in assembly instructions it says to square up to 10″. According to cutting instructions – squares are 6 1/2″, strips are 2 1/4″ x 6 1/2″, once you allow for 1/4″ seams you end up with 9 1/4″ squares not 10″ squares. How is the rest of the quilt going fit together if these measurements are incorrect? Does this mean that other pieces are the wrong size too? Have there been correction for this pattern? If so please forward a copy.
Thanks for you interest in our Sweet Dreams Pattern.
The proof sizes in the pattern are correct, so I’m not sure how you are coming up with 9 1/4″.
Center block, cut 6 1/2″ = 6″ finished
Outer strips, cut 2 1/4″ wide or 1 3/4″ finished. There are two of these, so that is 3.5″ finished
That totals 9 1/2″ finished, plus the 1/4″ seam allowance on both sides = 10″.
I hope that clears up any confusion. Please let me know if you have any further questions,
OK, Heather, I just spent 3 hours skimming through your entire blog. Again, wonderful!! I’m so pleased I discovered it. I sketched out your numerous machine quilting designs for inspriation – love, love, LOVE your style. Could you show some more whiteboard sketches of your machine quilting and how to go about it in future blogs? Is it possible to achieve the same effect without a longarm machine, or is a longarm machine essential?
I’m so glad you are able to use your gifts in this way and that you’re willing to share them with us.
Simlpy Sixties – Beach Balls design – calls for 15 fat quarters. If I was to use 10 inch squares, how many 10 inch squares would I need to complete this pattern, as there is no alternative substitute listed? Thanks
I want to make a couple of your patters from Stop, Drop, and Roll and i would like to use the same fabrics you used but i can’t seam to find them online anywhere. do you have and ideas?
Hi! My family is going to Seville, Spain in the spring and when I googled “quilt shop” and “Seville, Spain” a blog of yours from a year or 2 back came up … did you go to Seville? Do you remember any quilt shops? Thanks!
Heather, you have some wonderful patterns and books. Also, I follow your blog for a few years now. And little Carter is sure a cutie, so smiley. I love the picture where he is so serious propped on his elbows on the pillow. What a nice looking family. Patty B.
Heather, I couldn’t download the font for Cutie Pie, which I want to make for a friend. How can obtain a copy? I love the book and can’t wait to get started.
I was just wondering what brand of long arm quilter you have and also how you like it compared to other brands..I have been shopping around and am very impressed by the Inova and Gammils. What is your take on those? Thanks so much, Marilyn
I am not familiar with the Inova machines. I used to have a Gammill, but sold it and purchased an APQS Millenium instead. I wanted to switch to something that was lighter weight. I also wanted to get a stitch regulator and shorter table on my new machine. It has really made a difference for me to have a lighter machine. It is less hard on my neck and arms and I seem to have less trouble with headaches, etc. The things I miss about my Gammill is the double capacity bobbin – though I heard that APQS has that now too.
Hope this helps!
