"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?…"
"Barbara, the pillow is beautiful! Does it accompany the quilt behind it?
I sandwiched a QOV this morning. The person who pieced this top had trouble in 2 corners. I pinned them down as best I could. I will quilt it and…"
"This is Cole on his quilt. The photo is a little dark. My daughter says that the dogs like the other's quilts. She took my 2 grandchildren on a 14 km. hike up a mountain. I have a picture of them up there. There is…"
I would machine quilt your doggie quilt. The hand quilting won't show up as much on the prints. And, since it will be bought by perhaps a non-quilter they would appreciate sturdy machine quilting and washability (I…"

Linda, I was organizing my quilt patterns that I have downloaded and I came across your dog pattern. I am partial to Clifford too. When Hubby and I babysat our grandchildren Clifford was on T.V. every day and I…"
"This is for Lucy - a more feminine quilt. It is backed with black fleece. I forgot to mention that Teddy's quilt is backed with bright flannel.
I machine quilted all 3 quilts but not very much. Just enough to keep the batting…"
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:)
