How I happened upon the Children's Library Quilt is that Pat Sloan is having different size blocks on Grandma's Kitchen Quilt and she told quilters that if they wanted all their blocks the same size, they could substitute a block…"
"On reflection, I think that we had a different Capt. Kangaroo on Canadian T.V. Riana, do you remember? There was a little boy puppet, a big bag and a tall animal. I might have been too old to watch him during the day. "
"Thanks to all who liked my QOV.
I remember too that "little peanut" was an affectionate term for little babies and kids when I was small.
I bought some beautiful fabric when I was in Hawaii many years ago and I finally cut into them and…"
"This is the QOV that I sandwiched, machine quilted and hand bound.
Riana, What you told me about the peanut gallery at the ball parks was really interesting! I didn't know that.
I just finished #17 of the Rest & Refreshing Quilt from…"
"Riana, as a complete aside from all the serious discussions, do you remember the real "peanut gallery" on Howdy Doody? The audience of kids on the show answered questions of the host, Buffalo Bill (on the Am. show) and would be…"
What a lovely gift quilt you made for your friend. I recognized one of the blocks - the tea kettle from the Country Cupboard quilt.
I am machine quilting a QOV and all the problems with bias that the quilt top maker had are quilting…"
I just heard from my daughter a few minutes ago. The evacuation alert has been lifted. They also had such rain. It was such good news.
The only dark cloud in my life is my son, Martin. He is so very sick and is…"
"Thank you Linda, Riana, Mary and Deanna. My daughter and her husband cleared away all the brush near their house and they bought a fire pump and keep the house watered down. The nearest fire is on a mountain at Little Fort. The…"
"I've been following the wildfires in B.C. because my daughter lives in the area of the fires. Her town, Clearwater, is on evacuation alert. She said that they are not in danger but she will keep me posted. I worry so much…"
So sorry to hear that Indy is sick. I have a soft spot for dogs and especially yours because he does so much good and brings so much happiness to your life. I could see in his eyes that he was under the weather and suffering in…"
"This is the Crazy Quilt QOV that I sandwiched, machine quilted and hand bound. My friends like the colours. It had been languishing as a top since 2013-4 and I was asked to finish it. I'll hand it in at the next sew-in in…"
I have the pattern for The Row by Row 2017 from The Running Stitch in Kanata Ontario (my favourite quilt store). It is called Hexies on the Go and it is designed by 2 women at the store whom I know well. It has a house, a tree, a…"
That is just an amazing lone star log cabin! It looks so hard to me. I need to know what you do with the row by row experience. I see them advertised at quilt shops on-line. And also the licence plates?…"
If you downloaded the pattern from her blog, it should be a file on your computer and you can just attach the file to an email. Otherwise, if you scan it to your computer, again it will have a file name and can be attached. I'm not in any hurry to start...so many other things to do and my good machine is in the shop. But thank you so much for helping me out!
The "wood grain" quilting sounds interesting, can't wait to see the whole quilt done.Remember l signed up for the free online longarm class? lt said for best results, use a computor ( instead of tablet etc.) , so l closed it, deciding to use computor later. Now it won't come up.l wonder if there was a time limit.l wish l'd taken it on the tablet, even if not as good as on computor.
Smart idea, about the mug rugs...l would never have thought of fabric gluing...l'd have probably gone to snipping/pulling out the poor handwork , washed & redone w/machine. Not likely a" profitable" use of time:)
