I took an applique class with Pat Sloan this summer. A terrific teacher. She's warm, funny, encouraging, and knowledgeable. I love her books. Her projects are "doable." She showed us how to cut away the center of the template to keep the fabric…Continue

I'm only starting out, so I don't have a huge fabric stash to draw from. When you started out, did you buy fabric quilt by quilt, or did you buy fabrics you liked and then create quilts from what you had? There are so many wonderful things out…Continue

Fun and lessons doing the row robin with the UFO group

Posted by Riana Noyes on October 13, 2014 at 8:00am 6 Comments

It was to take us 8 months for 8 participants working at a pace of 1 row/mo. Each person picked a theme, and decided on  "rules" for guidance in the making of the rows to follow. Some had color preferences , pattern choice(s), or simply an "express youself" attitude. Then the first rows ( acting as each quilt's foundation row) were sent out in Jan. The owners of these rows would not see their rows or even pictures of…

One With The Fabric

Posted by David Smithers on October 11, 2014 at 5:57pm 2 Comments

A few thoughts on becoming "one" with the fabric. In my beginners class I find that many of my students are struggling with precision in the patchwork blocks for their sampler. Each week, I remind them of the importance of the the quarter inch, accurate cutting and careful piecing. The quarter inch is so important to me but so tossed aside by some of my students. The block just doesn't work without a precise quarter inch! "I'm using a quarter inch foot" is often the response I get when I point… Continue

2015 Quilting Goals

Posted by Beth A. North on October 8, 2014 at 7:59pm 4 Comments

I am so enjoying the New Year Challenge for 2014.  I have been able to finish at least one project a month.  The thought of next year has crept in.  Seeing my piles of scraps, as some of you may have, and being influenced to join in the Scrappy Quilts Group, Leaders and Enders, my goal for 2015 will be to make 12 scrap quilts.  That is one a month.  I believe this is doable.

Along with that goal of scrap quilts, finishing 12 kits I have purchased will be a goal as well.

A New Quilting Season

Posted by David Smithers on October 6, 2014 at 10:30am 1 Comment

I love the fall. The leaves are in full bloom and the colors are stunning! I love to see how Mother Nature blends the browns, yellows, reds and oranges. So inspiring! And I love that my two guilds start up again after the summer break. It's great to reconnect with "old" quilting fiends, make new guild friends, share new patterns, start new projects, take classes,and BUY new fabric for my overflowing stash!!!



This year, I'm teaching a beginners class for Adult Ed. Love it! The new… Continue
