NQC LIVE! June 2016

In this month’s NQC LIVE, Heather Thomas answered your questions on everything from pre-washing fabric to layering and basting a quilt. She also discussed ways to fix thread problems such as breakage and ‘eye-lashing’, and ways to both prevent and fix fabric puckering that can happen during quilting. Heather shared her ideas on ways to embellish art quilts, including her new favorite medium to work with – metal.

    Regarding what you have said about cutting borders slightly shorter...Do you sew the border on with the pieced quilt on top or with the border on top? Thank you. I have enjoyed re-watching each of these monthly events. You have shared so much valuable information .

    Have always admired this iron on so many of the video tutorials and even did some research on it. Would love to own one and winning it would be even better!

    I really need this iron. I am 83 years young and irons get so heavy for me to lift. This would certainly solve my problem with no lifting involved. They are a little too expensive to buy when one is living on Social Security. Thank you for this opportunity.
