Q and A With Kaye....

Suggestion from a reader regarding the breast cancer pillow project.

Hello, I'm a survivor of breast cancer and appreciate all you are doing. However, if the pillow would be made of a heart shape, it would be great to use during the recovering time. The heart, made of flannel, can be placed under the arm for comfort and believe me it works. I used mine for sleeping and found it was a great comfort.

Thank you so much for your input. I'm sure many readers will find this useful.

Q: Is there a rule of thumb on what color of thread to use for the quilt top? I have never made a quilt and I am not sure what color of thread to use. The quilt top is in various colors of blues, greens and reds, with small amounts of beige.

K: Use gray for dark, beige or off white to piece light colors.

Q: Is there a guideline on how to figure the width of the sashing or binding to go on a quilt? For example, if there are 9 inch squares and 12 squares, what is the size of the binding that would go in between each one to make a wall hanging? Is there a formula for figuring this out?

K: Your sashing should be no wider than the size of the squares, and binding can be any width. It all depends on how you want it to look. If your sashing is wider than your squares, it tends to overcome your design a bit. When it comes to your border, sometimes a wider one pulls your design together more and accentuates your design. Your best bet is to lay it out before sewing them on. Try different widths and see how it looks with your squares. When you find one that work with it and is appealing to you, go with it.

Here are some tips our readers sent in. Thanks for taking the time to share them with us, we appreciate it!

I keep my ironing board set at a low level and set it up behind or beside me when I'm working. It's great as an extra work space when I'm not pressing seams. I know some suggest you get up to press to avoid sitting too long. I use TiVo as a timer, when one quilting program is over I take a stretch break. Lynn

When using strips for quilts, hang them on a clothes hanger to keep them straight. If there are many of them, you can put them on a rack used for drying clothes. If put in the order that they are to be sewn, then you just need to pick up and sew. Mary

When using invisible thread in hand stitching, I thread the needle as usual. Then I place a small piece of invisible type tape, folded over the thread next to the spool, then cut the thread from the spool, on the spool side of the tape. This leaves the tape in approximately the spot where you would usually have a knot. I have never been able to put a knot in the invisible thread any other way. The tape lets you see the end of the thread when taking the first stitch, which I lock into place before proceeding to sew. I have hand quilted 2 baby quilts with invisible thread and found this method to be helpful. Happy quilting!! Al & Marlene

As you know during the sewing of a quilt, you would like the iron on. Sometimes I would forget to turn it off when I was done. Now I plug my iron in the same outlet that is used for the light. This way when I leave the room and turn off the light, I am also turning off the iron. This works for me and I have not left the iron on once since. When getting ready to sew binding on a quilt, I have found that taping a plastic bag under the front of my sewing machine to put the binding in, keeps it neat and easy to use. Also, if I have a drawer in front, I just open the drawer and lay the binding in there, after I have wound it in a neat bundle. Mary Ann
