My10 Quilty Secrets

10 quilty secrets
Amy , the blogger at 13 spools   did a post on 10 Quilt Secrets  and boy did it go over big .  A lot of bloggers followed her lead and posted their quilt secrets too. WELL confession is good for the soul and here are my 10 Quilty Secrets.
1.  I am proud to say that I only have about 12 UFO’s that I need to finish.
2 .  I have in the past had my used rotary cutter blades re- sharpened.
3 .  I really wanted this gadget, the Quilter’s FabriCalc  that I have yet to use.
4 . I am  getting better at switching out my sewing machine needles.
5 .  I love shopping for new fabric if it is for a special quilt project.
6 .  Sometimes I will use pretty sheets as backing for my quilts.
7.   I prefer not to work with small fabrics pieces.
8 .  I like the quality of Gutermann thread.
9.  The part that worries me the most about my quilting is the binding, I want it perfect.
10. Since I started taking better care of my sewing machine it sews better.
Linking up with Linky Tuesday and 13 Spools

Summer will soon be a  memory and Fall is right around the corner. And I am hoping for a great time this weekend at the high school class reunion. 

Peace, love, and art.


  1. I have 3 different gizmos to sharpen my rotary cutter blades and none of them work very well. So I keep cutting with dull blades-LOL

    1. I don't know but some say running rotary blades across aluminum works!!!!

  2. Oh, I used to use sheets as backing all the time. Now I enjoy piecing my backing (or I get excited when a baby quilt is small enough to work with a regular WOF!). It is fun to see how things evolve. Good luck finishing your UFOs!

    1. I am too enjoying piecing backs with the new techniques I learned on Craftsy. Hello to Patch.

  3. I missed your secrets when I was reading them all, sorry!! I haven't tried to sharpen my blades, but hold onto them waaaaay too long so I have to saw at the fabric. LEeAnna at not afraid of color

  4. Too funny. Of course I share more than one of those. Have come to accept that I enjoy starting things more than finishing them. Sometimes I actually feel anxious about finishing something. Think I enjoy the process. Must do my own list. Just found your blog. What a joy.

  5. Too funny. I share more than one of these. I have come to accept that I like starting things (so many great ideas) and am often anxious about finishing the process which I have enjoyed. Inspired to make my own list. Such a joy finding you and your blog.
