    I’ve become very electrically sensitive and must limit my exposure to the sewing machine. I need to start hand quilting a baby quilt I’ve completed for my grand-daughter that has animal shapes made of multiple colors. I’m wondering what color of thread I should use. Should I use the same color as each of the fabrics as you recommend for machine quilting and forget about what the back will look like or should I use a neutral color that will blend with both the front and the back?

    My sister-in-law passed away unexpectedly last December. In June, my brother asked if I would make a quilt using her pj’s. Of course I said yes. The pj’s are made of fleece and jersey knit. I’m sure I should stabilize the fabric, but I would like to get Heather’s advice before I actually begin to cut them up. I love this show and value Heather’s expertise.

    WHAT WAS THE NAME OF THE SOAP YOU USE IN LAUNDERING ALL YOUR QUILTS? PULLS DYES OUT. AND KEEPS THEM FROM BLEEDING.

    I had a lone star quilt kit that had interfacing to sew the pieces on which made a beautiful quilt. Do you know where I can get another pattern like that?

    Is there a “stitch regulator” that you can buy to retro fit old sewing machines with? My free motion quilting on my vintage 1973 Viking is a little sketchy. If not, do you have any good tips for keeping stitch length consistent?

      Plus— I can’t view the live broadcast. Do I need to do something special? This is my first time attempting to participate in a live broadcast.

    I am very new to quilting and sewing. I want to quilt but no one talks about the batting for the quilt. What should I use?

    I’ve been practicing quilting patterns and was wondering what your favorite pattern for quilting in blank spots is.

    I want you to know how much I appreciate your knowledge and talent and thank you so much for sharing it with us! When is it appropriate to sew the binding on the front and when to sew it on the back?
