Contact Generations Quilt Patterns

A website is only useful if it provides the information YOU are looking for.

Why not help by letting me know how I can do a better job for you?

What are your favorite quilting techniques? What would you like to see more of? Is there enough information in the instructions? What was helpful...or confusing?

And Heaven forbid, did I miss your favorite technique?

I want to know!

Feel free to suggest topics for articles or even new sections. I love trying new things at Generations Quilt Patterns and am happy to do the investigating for you!



To Serve You Better

I've answered several of the most common questions that come into the website each week.

This way you have my answer without even writing. You find a solution quickly and get back to quilting sooner!

Here they are:


Where to donate fabric?

Many of us are lucky to have sizable stashes that we want to downsize.

Others of us have been gifted fabric from friends or inherited it when loved ones passed.

At some point it can get to be just too much.

At this time (May, 2016) I do not maintain on the website a list of organizations that take fabric donations.

My current recommendation is to contact your local quilt guild(s) or shop(s) (and there are lists of these on this site) to see if they either know who in the area is taking donations or they, perhaps, are taking donations, themselves. Quilt guilds will sometimes have a ‘garage sale’ night planned for their members where tables are offered for rent. That is another possibility.

Sometimes a guild member is teaching local kids to quilt and needs supplies, too.

Check the churches in your area. Some make quilts. Others make clothing or other useful items for those in need.

You find groups on Facebook whose sole purpose is to help group members sell quilt-related items—both new and used items. One such group is Quilters Stash of Goodies For Sale.


Where can I get my quilt repaired?
Who can I get to quilt it for me (either hand or machine)?
Who can I get to sew on my bindings?

I do not maintain directories for these services. Quite simply, I can’t personally vouch for the quality of the work.

Contact your local quilt guild(s) and quilt shop(s). They are in the best position to recommend someone locally based on experience.

You may also want to try Quilter's Resources. Dayna Evert has listings for longarm quilters there organized by state.

Even with a recommendation, don’t forget to ask for references and to see samples of their work. Check out their Facebook pages. That’s just good common sense.


Calculating yardage for a quilt pattern

While I would love to provide this service for everyone, I receive roughly 15 requests/week for this and there simply aren’t enough hours in the day. It just isn't feasible.

There are, however, several articles on the site currently to help you learn to calculate your own fabric requirements. You also learn to customize them to your own way of working.

My editorial plans in 2016 include tying all these articles together with a set of worksheets. When it is published, I will post a link to it here, on my social media channels and in the newsletter.


General quilting questions

Each week brings in another 100-ish new questions into my inbox. As much as I’d like, there’s just no sane way to respond to all of them.

The good news is I’ve already answered more than 500 of your questions and posted the problem/solution on the site.

To see if your’s has already been asked and answered, type what your question is about in the Search Box below and click ‘Search’. You’ll be able to find a solution more quickly that way. Though it might look like it, there are over 1200 pages on the Generations Quilt Patterns site—all about quilting.
