Most of us have more UFOs than we can count, but when does it become enough, already? How long to you keep them around? Today, the most wonderful thing happened. My D-M-I-L (Mom Millie) called and…Continue
"Sandy, I am so envious! I try to get out to Lancaster County, specifically Intercourse, each summer. So many quilts to see and quilt shops to buy from! My favorite is Old Country Store. I buy from their online store quite often. Have fun in PA Quilt…"
"Hi I am in Lancaster PA. My husband and I moved back to PA after being gone for 25 years. A lot has changed in all those years and we are enjoying being back. I am loving all the wonderful quilt shops. "
Is it too late to join? Been under the weather (no pun intended) and just now am looking at all the stash under my table and haven't even started in the Sewing Loft. Hope this is a never too late group!See More
Welcome to A Quilting Bee. We have a few challenges that are year long events. In 2017 we will have week-long stitching bee challenges & month-long FIUP challenges. Each event will be posted as a separate discussion to try and keep things organized.See More
Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I'm a retired Realtor, and secretary. My DH and I are both widowed and now live with our 2 wonderful West Highland White Terriers, Kerri Pearl and The Rocket, age 6 years. We love old cars, playing cards, quilting, and crafting, not in that order. Our children are all grown and other than when they need us to babysit or need something else we generally do not hear from them. That is ok with us as long as we know where they are.

Love working with my hands and seeing finished results
Years of working with used indust. machines has taught me to take apart(yes you can!) the tension disc assembly and clean it all out. If it doesn't behave after that, the tension discs' profile & spring have likely been damaged by over-tightening in the past, usually due to extended use of thin filament plastic thread.You'll need a new assembly (cheaper than a new machine) . Otherwise find an industrial machine mechanic in larger city, & take it in.Good luck!
Hey Mazine! Good to hear from you. I have just finished 4 little quilts. One of them is going to my November Doll Quilt Swap partner on quiltingboard.com, and the other three are going to AAQI. Let's see if I can attach photos to this....
Hey, I did it! The first three are for AAQI. One is 9 by 12, the other two are 9 in. square. The last one is for my swap partner. It is 18 by 18.
Not sure what I'll do next. I want to make some table toppers and mug rugs for Christmas gifts, so I should probably start on those!
I love all the quilts you have posted here. It is good to find a familiar person from QCA on a different site like this. I had never been here before even though I have been an AQS member a lot longer. Hope you are enjoying this mystery. I sure am.
Through the quiltingboard I met with some local quilters, we meet once a month and Robin, one of the group has a wonderful work room at her place in Newcastle. So we have gathered there once a month for the past 3. Perhaps that is something you would be interested in. We just bring our sewing machines and work on whatever project.
Look forward to seeing your Mystery Quilt progress.
I see you are part of the Mystery Quilt group. I have the pattern so far, picked out fabric, and decided I needed to finish a few other things before I get started. I have loved what I have seen so far. Have you started?
Just wanted to pop in to say “hello” and introduce myself. I’m Linda Hubalek, fellow quilter and author from Kansas. Books about pioneer women are my specialty, with a cooking or quilting theme mixed into each historical fiction series.
If you like to read—besides quilting—please enjoy my blog and book excerpts on my website too. Besides printed as paperbacks, my ten books are also available for your Kindle or Nook. Actually my Trail of Thread ebooks are on special, so now’s a good time to “Follow the trail to Kansas” with my quilting women.
Or if you’d like the paperback version I just posed a special on my Linda Hubalek website (until Aug. 21st) that you can get 20% off your book order by using the code QUILT in the shopping cart.
I have about a dozen quilts made by my great grandmother, (that we used all the time when I was a kid) so I’m into antique quilts and patterns. What kind of quilts and patterns do you like to work with?
