FAQ's - Friday's Frequently Asked Questions

This is a little delayed as Blogger was down last night and I am finally back to the computer - Friday is a busy quilting day.  
Thanks for the great questions this week...

Would you quilt a yard or two of  fabric for me, so I can make a quilted tote bag?
Yes, I quilt fabric for bags and other quilted items.  I also quilt fabric for comforters.  Using the extra wide fabric on both sides makes a great comforter.  One of my customers chose white for one side and cream for the other side.  She wanted a king size quilt/comforter for her guest bed.  She makes quilts of all sizes and the king size quilt makes a wonderful back drop to display her smaller quilts one at time.  She chooses the cream side for some quilts and the white side for others.  She also did a two sided binding, so that the white side is all white and the cream is all cream.

Can I have you do the embroidery binding on my quilt?  

Yes.  My customers love to have me do the all machine embroidery bindings for them. When they get their quilt back it is completed and ready to use or give as a gift.

I noticed that you stitch "Marcia" on your own quilts. Can you stitch my name and the year on my quilt? 

 Yes, I can stitch words and numbers and many other free style designs.  It's only 10 cents a letter - like engraving!

Do you really dream about quilting? 

Yes, I really dream about quilting....  I machine piece quilt tops in my sleep. I write patterns and wake up and write them down. Sometimes they are good and sometimes they're not!

One night I had a quilting nightmare... I awoke very upset.  I felt like I was choking.  My husband asked me if I was OK?  I said, "yes," as I rubbed my mouth and throat, "I was dreaming that I swallowed a whole quilt!" We both laughed!  My husband brings it up once in a while and we just laugh....

I am sure most of you are not surprised that I dream about quilting, as I have a one track mind!

Again thanks for the email questions... keep them coming.

If you need them answered right away, just let me know.
