FAQ and binding
Hello there! If you are coming here you probably have a question. Let's see if I can answer that for you!
Q- I'm looking for more information on binding, where can I find it?
A- I used to hand bind my quilts, but have switched to machine binding over the past few years. I loved this tutorial by Red Pepper Quilts on machine binding, and highly recommend it. There are also several methods and great videos of machine binding here.
Q- Why can't I order a PDF pattern to be emailed to the EU?
A- Unfortunately because of the new VAT laws on digital goods, many (if not most) PDF shops in the US and everywhere are being forced to stop delivering digital content to anyone in the EU. It stinks, and we are hoping things change (and soon!) but for now I am unable to sell PDFs directly to people in the EU. Paper patterns still ship EVERYWHERE for $3 per order.
Q- Does my pattern include the fabric to make the quilt?
A- The patterns on my website are not kits, and only include the instructions to make the quilt, not the actual fabric and materials.
Q- Do you sell fabric?
A- No, not usually. Once in a while I sell some scrappy fat quarter bundles here on my site, but they are first come and usually sell out very quickly.
Q- Where can I buy your fabric?
A- Good question! The newer lines are readily available, and can be found in many local and online quilt shops. Unfortunately, I have no way of knowing which shops carry which lines, but a quick phone call to your favorite shop or google search should help you locate what you are looking for.
Q-Which Moda solids match this fabric?
A- If you take a look at the right sidebar on my blog you should see a link to the introduction from each of our fabric lines. Most of them (except the earliest ones) have coordinating bella solids listed on the pages. That should give you a great place to start. Moda also has a color card online here.
Q-Why can't I find your older fabric lines?
A- We (my mom and I) design two fabric lines for Moda each year. A certain amount of fabric is produced for each line, and shipped to shops around the world. That fabric will be available until it sells out and the next line is available. We design all of our lines to play well together, so don't be afraid to mix and match in your projects!
Q-Can I sell products made from your patterns?
A- Sure! As long as you are just selling them on a smaller scale (shows or small online shops) that isn't a problem at all.
