Insomniacs Midnight Chats


Insomniacs Midnight Chats

This group is for those late night quilters who like to login to MQP in the wee hours of the morning.   I know once I wake up I can never go back to sleep so I like to browse around MQP. But I miss all the action because it's 2 or 3 am. So now, maybe my fellow insomniacs can find me here and chat. Or just post your insomnia charged thoughts....hope you enjoy!

Ok. l've heard about the binding/glue method...but l thought you'd said you were adding BORDERS. l've used a glue stick when doing needle turn applique on fabrics that want to fray...keeps them under control, especially on inside corners.

I saw a tutorial that claimed that method works great.

Riana-yes I do glue.  Sew on the back and bring it forward and glue it down and press it with iron.  It is a fantastic way to do it because you can control the binding placement and sewing is a breeze.  It does make it stiff, but that doesn't affect the sewing.  I used elmers to glue all my rows when I realized the stitching was coming apart.  It was especially helpful for the strips  that were 3/4" and 1" wide.  All you use is a dot where the strips meet at seams.

What? Glue? you glue on the borders to baste?? Doesn't that make the fabric get hard?

Vicki I will when it's finished. Still have to add borders etc. all I can say is thank God for Elmer's glue. :)

Wow Marcia, I want to try a bargello one day. I sort of did one but it didn't really turn out like I planned. Linda Koller I'm a little hyperactive myself. In the wee hours of the morning I do all my quiet work like embroidery...which I don't enjouy but it's for a quilt so...see you around! :)

Marcia, post a pic of the bargello.  Would love to see it.

Comment by Marcia on August 27, 2014 at 1:50pm

Hi Karen - so glad you are back!!!   Yesterday I finished my bargello top and would you believe, I slept all night?  LOL  and I feel so good today. 

Comment by Linda Koller on August 26, 2014 at 12:53am

Hi Karen - Nice to meet you. I've been on the site for a coupe years now, just haven't  met you before. I understand completely about getting bored with a project and having to find something else. I probably have 5-6 projects going at once. which is why I don't sleep...I'm hyperactive in a body that can no  longer. So on that note I'll bid you good night.
