Your Quilting Opinions Please

Advertisements:

I have several new patterns I'm releasing this fall and in planning their presentation I've come across a few questions I'd really like your opinion on. I'm hoping you'll be able to copy and paste the questions in an email to me, adding your answers before hitting the send button.



1. Do you prefer embroidery designs you trace on the fabric yourself or would you like a multiple use iron-on transfer?

2. Do you like to stitch your embroidery with floss or pearl cotton?

3. If using floss, how many strands do you usually use?

4. If using pearl cotton, what's your favorite weight?

5. What's your most used stitch; backstitch, outline or stem stitch?

6. Do you prefer project based patterns or design collections you can use any way you want?

7. How important would an iron on transfer be to you when using the Back Basting method of hand applique?

8. Do you like online swaps?

9. Do you like online weekend or day retreats?

10. Do you prefer to make patchwork or applique quilts?

11. Do you prefer Books or patterns?

12. Do you like patterns you purchase and download instantly?

I told myself I'd only ask a dozen questions and I got to twelve very quickly. I know the two about swaps and retreats don't have a great deal to do with pattern publication but you never know, I might do a retreat using a pattern available only to the retreaters.

I'll let you know next week how the answers tally up.

Thank you, thank you, thank you !!!

    Hi Gayle,

    ..here are my answers, hope they’re helpful…
    1) iron on transfer or tracing myself…no preference
    2) floss
    3) I use 1 up to 4 strands – depends on project
    5) backstitch
    6) project based patterns…but I often use them for non-related projects, too ;o)
    8) yes, but until now never participated
    9) weekend
    10) both! again, no preference…
    11) patterns, I guess
    12) never tried them…but if they are more detailed/illustrated {more pics of finished item and/or instruction steps} I’d appreciated them…

    So, have to go to bed now {in my part of the world sunset was way too long ago…
