"Bridget, they are mechanical so there is really nothing to break. I was afraid of mine when I first got her and the tension was off and I did not know quite how to make it right.  I took it to my local sewing machine repair man and he oiled and…"

I'm back!

Posted on December 27, 2014 at 1:28pm 6 Comments

Hello everyone!  I just came back here after going through over three years of a major dry spell.  I can't believe I ever stopped quilting!  I even stopped reading quilt magazines! I went back to school for a couple of years and it took up all of my time.  I just hope I can get the bug back!  I've so missed quilting, yet I am finding it hard to accept the fact that I can do what I want now that school is over!  And of course I'm overwhelmed with ideas and don't know where to start!  Since I'm so out of practice with my free-motion quilting, I was thinking about making a small (9x12) whole cloth piece.  That way I can practice the quilting as well as practice my binding.  Anyway, there is so much to explore here now that there are so many groups!  I see that the Featherweight group is still here...I had wanted a Featherweight for ages, and my mom bought me a really nice one in hopes of getting me excited about quilting again.  That was two years ago and I have yet to plug it in! …


So excited!

I'm so excited!  One of my Alliance for American Quilts contest entries is up for auction this week and someone has already bid $50 (starting bid).  For more information about the AAQ auction, here's a link: http://archive.constantcontact.com/fs011/1101594196900/archive/1108613702498.html

Thanks so much for the birthday wishes. Don't come here near as often as I used to but I do read and try to keep up.

Thank you for Birthday wishes.

Good luck with the bus. Know what you mean about investing ton of money but we all need a hobby we enjoy.  I have not had much luck with selling things I have made since I quit going to fairs.  But even then the expense of going to fairs and material to make stuff was not good.  Dh supports my hobby and family help a little. 

Worked with the Busy Bees quilt group in Monticello GA for 10 yrs.  they donate to Project Linus the Middle Ga. chapter.  Several middle GA counties in the group and they have donated over 6000 comfort blankets.

All my immediate family have quilts as well as aprons and lot of other handmade items in their homes.  I make most gifts to the family.  The young ones especially love the quilts.  Nieces have put up quilts their children used as babies to pass on to the next generation.  That is neat.  Be sure and label your work, the family enjoy looking at the label yrs later and saying gee can't believe this quilt is that old.  

Some have come to me as much as 10 yrs later wanting their first quilt mended.  Can't talk them into a new one to replace the worn one.  They always want the new and the old one fixed.

thanks for the birthday wishes. I have had 3 quilts accepted to Paducah andgot an honorable mention at Denver National last year - 46 ribbons in 6 yrs which I am very proud of. I love machine appliqué' and Ricky Tims is probably my favorite quilter. I like teaching, have been to many shows but this year I am going to Houston for the first time and looking forward to it.     Charmaine

Good morning QuilterBridget.  Just read on another post that you live in Seaside, OR.  Small town, no groups or guilds.  I live in Corvallis and have found a wonderful group to be a part of.  Hope you have found someone to share your love/passion of quilting with.
