  7. It would be fun to have one of your pouches, Ella! I'm off to read what you wrote about your new pillow! And I've never hand-quilted an entire quilt, but I would imagine that if you use the delicate cycle, it should be fine. Just make sure your ends are firmly secured!

  20. My favorite Christmas song is WHite Christmas. There are several quilt care soaps available to wash your quilt with and I would use several color catchers in the wash.

    ReplyDelete
  21. What cute pouches - I love the little red one with the bubbles :)

    Lemme think - favourite song? Well, at the moment I have "Fire is low" from freshlyground in my head. They did the Soccer World Cup theme song with Shakira, but are fatastic musicians on their own (a local South African band). If you can get your mitts on a cd, I would recommend them for sure. Great music to craft to.

    Good luck with your quilt :)

  23. Uber cute and useful pouches. Purple is my favorite color but I think I would love a pouch in either yellow or orange. They're so cheerful.
    If I had to choose 1 song, I guess I would go with 'On Your Porch' by The Format. That's a really hard question though.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Love your little zippered pouch...do you have any orange?!?!?! =) Merry Christmas! =)

    ReplyDelete
  25. favourite song - I could tell you one of my favourite music - Vivaldis recorder concertos the slow movements are great ...

  35. My advice would be 'gently does it!!'

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'm your newest follower, and I love your pouches in the picture. Only thing I'd change would be to make one blue! LOL My fav song is "Going Home" from Gods and Generals.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'm a hand-quilter, and I usually put them in the tub (scrub it first - ewww) and add water and a liquid detergent. Agitate it and then drain/fill with cold water to rinse.
    The hard part is to dry it. I take it to the laundromat in a thick garbage bag, cos they have this thing that spins most of the water out, without moving it around much at all.
    Then it doesn't weigh so much, and I actually do hang it on the line. (Gasp) Works for me!

  38. Dave colors...green and brown! Love them!! Fav song: the river by Joni Mitchell

  39. Love that one on the bottom of the pic with the splash of red! Gorge! Current fave - Keep Me in Mind, but my choice changes every few weeks because radio stations way over play songs until I can't stand to hear them again:) beckymac1 at hotmail dot com

  44. Yay colors! Hmm... Josh Groban singing O Holy Night? I'd say wash in the tub and dry on the shower rail - if it's clean and not likely to leave a dingy black stripe along the quilt! dangandblast@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  45. I've been wanting to get a new makeup bag, this would be perfect!

    As for washing quilts, I can't be too helpful, but I used to wash my bathing suits in Zero by hand and hang them to dry and I think that extended their life... maybe it works for quilts?

  77. Those are great! I love the purple ones, but I'm an orange/peach kinda gal. ;)
