Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
Hi everyone i'm from northern ontario canada. the winters are very long, our summers are great and full of bugs. id love to make a mosquito wall hanging, maybe just one large one for the camp. anybody have ideas? ive been making quilts since i was 10 years and still have lots to learn. very limited on fabric up here, mail order may be my next bet. anyways hope to hear from all of you .
Hi Laurie, I'm in Australia and order online, mainly Hancocks of Paducah (Sometimes free ship) Bug Fabric, Equilter, there are heaps and just great. Also get all my threads online, have a longarm and love the glide, rasant and so Fine.
Hi Laurie nice to meet you I'm in Ottawa, Ontario hope you will have lots of fun on here, and I'd also suggest you sign up for the Canadian Group that is on here as well. At the moment we are doing a FQ swap for Christmas it's too late for this year but I'm sure there will be more stuff going on in the New Year.
We can also help you with some good website's for fabric too!
Good chilly Saturday to you all, I too am a new girl on this site and I am from the eastern portion of the Province of Ontario. I am self taught and have been quilting steadily since 1992, from a kitchen table to a sewing studio and back to a kitchen space again. Currently I am working on matching place mats with table topper. The picture attached is of the table topper. I chose this theme because of the red cardinals who visit with me each day this winter. Sorry I have been trying to make the photo smaller, it just isn't happening at the moment.
Well Rogue, thank you so very much for the warm welcome and the assurances about picture sizing, it is worrisome when you first join a site and step out on the ledge, before you've really gotten your wings! Lol
I must agree, those red cardinals do it for me in the feather department, though must confess, I love all of those friends who visit at my bird feeders. Seeing as I just moved here to this neighborhood I am excited about just how many different varieties I shall be privileged to have visit with me. Lately because of the feathered friends who visit my fabric selections definitely reflect them.
Thank you again for the warm welcome, it is very much appreciated.
Hope you are feeling better soon! Are you able to quilt? That is the best therapy for me.
Oh my! That is no fun. I hate ripping out. It sounds like you need to just rest up and get better. I'm not good at resting. It makes me stir crazy. At least you have all of us to talk to online. I hope it helps a little bit. Sending you love, prayers, and good thoughts.
Maybe this is a good time to record some of those ideas in a journal before they escape into the dreamland. That's what seems to happen to my ideas if I don't write them down somewhere right away...sigh!
