How to Store Fused Fabrics

Once you transfer fusible web to a fabric it is there for good. You can use the fused fabric now or 20 years from now. It never loses it’s fusibility.
Which leads us to a problem I’ve had to deal with for 20 years: how do you store all those fused fabrics?
List of how to store fused fabrics
Roll large 1 yard pieces of fabric on the release paper and cut fabrics off as needed
Stack quarter yard pieces of fabric down to 5″ square fabrics on trays or in stacking drawers. Try not to fold the fabric.
Toss small fabric scraps into small bins or plastic bags.

An Autumn Trip to the Trillium Group

Joyce and Laurie show off their work from class.

Thank you to the Trillium Quilters for a delightful visit to Door County, Wisconsin. As usual, I was amazed at their wonderful creations. Each and every Tiny Homes quilt top was fun and inspired and original.

The day of the orange pumpkin is past.

After class we went to dinner and watched the sun set over Green Bay. It was the perfect ending to a perfect autumn day way up north. You really must visit Door County sometime. The little towns, the shops, the cherry orchards, and the lake make it ideal for a leisurely fall escape.

As I drove home, I enjoyed the brilliant fall colors scattered across the hills of Wisconsin. And I thought to myself, “It’s good to be a traveling quilt teacher!”

Way Up North at the Door


Here we are in lovely Sister Bay, WI. Sister Bay is close to the tip of the Door County peninsula that arches into Lake Michigan. It is on the Green Bay side of the peninsula. (“Go Packers!” said the wise woman from Chicago.)

One of the local attractions is Al Johnson’s Swedish Restaurant complete with a family of goats living on the sodded roof. I am told by another wise woman not eat the icicles from the roof in winter. I will listen to her warning.

Sister Bay is also the home of the Trillium Quilt Guild. These friendly folks gave me a warm reception last night at their guild meeting. We laughed, we cried, and we sang a stirring rendition of the Chicago School of Fusing Fight Song. We’ll see if we can stir up something today in the workshop, Tiny Homes.

Packing and Flying Again

A little bird quilt before stitching.

It’s fall and time for the birds in my neighborhood to pack their little bird bags and head for warmer climates. I know how they feel. Packing and flying are a regular routine for me.

Our little bird quilt in the mid-stitching stage.

This week I head to Door County, WI to visit the Trillium Quilters in Sister Bay. And guess what class I’m teaching? Fowl Play, Birds with No Egrets! This is such a fun class. You never know what those crazy quilters will make. I’ll try to show you some photos of their art later this week. Right now, I gotta fly!
