When it's hot (like right now! LOL), and you HAVE to bind or handquilt a quilt, try laying the bulk of it on a table, so it's not draped over your lap. If quilting in a hoop, you can then rest the hoop on the edge of the table. For binding, it might be helpful to have the quilt/table to your left somewhat (if you're a righty), your wrists won't take quite the beating of being bent weird.

If you want to do this in the garden/yard/on the deck or patio, try laying it on a chair next to you.

Gerda, I often do that, just so I'm not holding up the weight of the quilt. Of course, it usually ends up with a cat sitting on it, which makes moving it a challenge! LOL

Now Gerda, Katie says she knows you don't mean that about cats!    She says you better take it back or she'll come and visit you and give you a "cattitude" adjustment, lol.

She'd better not! I'll sic my friend's St. Bernard/Newfoundland on her - on second thoughts, Oscar is a big ol' Gentle Ben himself LOL Sorry, Katie, you're very cute to look at, but no real cats allowed here. I wish I didn't feel like that, but I do. My mom was the same. (don't feel too bad, Katie, I don't care for little dogs, either)

You two are a hoot. Gerda, you realize the more you dislike kitties - the more they will come and give you lovin's. -They do this because they KNOW. lol

Sharon just love the kitty pics. My little charmer does the same thing - however she has never done the water thing. nWhoa I would expect a real full blown CATTATUDE from that one. lol

Hugs and stitches

Debbieann It;s right what you say about cats!

 For as long as I'd know him, Mark had always said how much he 'hated' cats! Then one day I was asked to take a pair of brother/sister kittens, (free to anyone who would take them, you know the sort of thing) - anyway, that day he came home from work to two cats and they both LOVE him especially the male and Mark has come to love them back and has Tiger on his knee whenever he sits to watch television or read!

Gerda--I hear you loud and clear. For many years as a child we had a house cat but her spot always was on a kitchen chair. She would not have remained in our home if she had been on top of everything like most cats are. When I think of having a cat it would have to be like her. I can't tolerate these cats that are on top of everything or yappy little dogs. So I guess I was blessed in a way when my sons and husband weaseled in the animals. In my own home, though I'd rather not have had any animals, we ended up with a huge German Shepherd and then later a German Shepherd-Husky dog.

That German Shepherd disliked cats or very small dogs to the point that if he had been able to corner and catch them they would have been shaken to death. As a young pup a cat attacked him and the hate never left him. In all other ways, he was a marshmallow.

debbieann, that was a spammer.  i've deleted the posts and banned the IP addresses.  this Quilting Tips and Tricks section is fairly new and apparently has fallen thru the cracks of our security settings since this is the only place i have seen the spam posts (those were #2 & #3 - i got rid of one last night).  anyways, just hang tight and ignore them.  i have emailed jess and tech support and hopefully we'll have everything back to rights soon as can!
