Hello Campers!  Welcome to spring and are you all busy on your quilt projects?  I am supposed to be working on my 2nd Daughter, Becky's wedding quilt (they will be married five years next weekend - I am a bit behind) and it has been a challenge from the get-go.  We picked out the fabric last spring during a visit to her house in Plano, Texas.  Here are the fabrics:…See More

Making Progress, Making Pillows

Posted on November 28, 2016 at 10:44pm 3 Comments

Hello fellow quilting fanatics. This has been a very busy month around the Leiner household.  We sold one rental house and bought two more so I have been kept from my quilting by landlady duties.  But I am happy to report that I am making progress on the quilt for Beck and Todd, the quilt that has stymied me all…

My quilting friend, Riana Noyes asked me to do a post on the Halloween cross stitch quilt which is #108 in my albums.  The following are  pictures and some explanations/descriptions of how that quilt came to be.

First the back story.  I have been quilting since I was 18 years old.  I had my first child, Jamie at 23 and my second, Becky at 27.  All through their childhood, I was making quilts and once upon a time, cross stitching as well.  in 1984 or 85 I decided to do a Christmas…

Of course I would love to be a friend to you, another Ginnie, even if we spell it differently. What's your middle name? Sure hope your knee replacements heal well and you are up and at 'em again soon.

 Just here to introduce myself and welcome you to MQP.

Sometimes we are not sure where to visit on this site but I wanted to let you know that I have a group of gals and I that are doing several different quilts the Blooming Nine and the Jewel Box quilts. We are posting pictures with our choices of fabrics and progress. Carla Walton has done several of the Blooming Nine so she is our administrator. Come on over to view what we are doing at http://myquiltplace.com/group/batik-strip-swap/forum/topics/projects-and-pictures?xg_source=activity.

To do the Jewel Box we have a Batik Strip Swap going on and we are using those strips for the Jewel Box. We just started a Charm Square Swap of either Batik or 100% cotton at http://myquiltplace.com/group/charm-square-swap?xg_source=activity today to use with our Jewel Box Quilt project. Just come on over to join and then you can decide if you want to swap or just do the quilt projects.
