      Hi Quilters!

      Today at the Cabin : I am really OVER the cold and damp. It's been raining for 3 days and it's just above freezing. Tonight through Friday we're supposed to get rain with temps below freezing. That's never a good thing. But tonight is our sewing group so a temporary reprieve will be had! As for the rain, I look at it this way, it washes the salt off the roads so I can ride my bike!

      Hey, Kaye? What Are 3-D quilts?

      Quilts can be considered 3-D because they are or because they appear to be.
      Quilts can have the added dimension by having pieces that extend above the surface of the quilt, or the quilt can appear to be 3-D because of the way the colors are used (3-D look).

      Pieces that extend above the surface of the quilt can be appliqued or pieced.

      Applique pieces need to be finished by facing the piece with another fabric or by leaving the edges raw. These pieces extend (the edges are not sewn down). For instance with a flower, the center might be sewn to the quilt, but the leaves and/or flowers might be only attached at the stem. I have used this 3-D applique technique in my patterns "Stained Glass Diamonds", "Life in the Meadow", and "Tumbling Winds".

      Pieced 3-D can be accomplished by folding the fabric and inserting the raw edges into the seam lines. The fold would extend above the quilt. A square folded diagonally might be used in pinwheel designs, such as my pattern, "Pinwheel Squares" and "Floral Stars".

      3-D Look Quilt

      Often, this look can be accomplished with the use of color and the arrangement of color. When you think you can look into a quilt, it is usually the color arrangement that does that. For instance, in my pattern "Stacking My Blocks", the dark, medium and light colored fabrics give a -D look. In "Braided Table Runners" and "A-maze-ing", it is the arrangement of dark to light shades. In "Chrysanthemum", the medium and light fabrics make each piece of Dresden Plate seem to fold.

      Quilt Preservation....

      Q: I am the fourth generation to inherit all the beautiful very fragile quilt squares in my family. They are crazy quilt fashion, backed by muslin but are too fragile to even think of putting together. Someone once told me you can make a fabric book of each one by a process museums use but I don't know where to look for the information. Some of these date back to the 1800's with satin squares depicting the event and date. Hopefully I can preserve them for the next generation but am now in my seventies and decided I had better get with the program and find out how to do it. Would appreciate any help you may be able to provide!

      Please let us know how you would answer this question!

      Email me at terrye@...

      Here are more answers:

      Jacquelyn would use a plastic report cover.

      Connie would frame them for all to enjoy.

      Gloria: If i love those quilt squares I would take them to a hobby store and have them framed with the date. That way she could look at them all the time, and when it it time for them to be pass down the next person could enjoy them hanging on there wall and think of the the last person that took care of them.

      Sue suggests contacting someone at a quilt museum that has the actual hands-on knowledge of how best to do this and ask for their information and guidance.

      Annette: Maybe fuse a light weight muslin on the back of the blocks and transparent illusion on the top. Sew the blocks together, choose a backing and tie instead of quilting. This should stabilize it to be enjoyed for many years.

      Maurine: thinking of the acid in things that could ruin old quilts/squares. I wonder instead of report covers if going to the pages for a scrapbook would be safer??

      Sandy says; "There is a special quilt or fabric netting that used to be available that can be gently stitched over the fragile cloth. I haven’t bought any for years though. Please don’t store fabric in plastic as the humidity may cause mold. Write to the Smithsonian Museums in Washington, DC or your favorite local museum for specific advice."

      Thanks everyone for your awesome suggestions!

      Have a great week, everyone!
