I have made several rag quilts using flannel and denim and was told not to prewash the flannel. The flannel did fray nicely for the rag look.  How did yours turn out.?Continue

Does this group still comment on things?  Looks like it's been a while.  Chilly rainy days and nights gives me the quilting bug.  Going to AQS in Grand Rapids next week, looking forward to having a great time.  Finishing up rocking chair pads for my grand-nieces, then on to the fun stuff.....

Here is a "heads-up" all of you Michiganders! The Munising Bay Quilt Guild is hosting a 2 day quilt show Oct. 10-11, 2014. There will be over 200+ quilts on display from our 72 members. If you have never visited the U.P. during fall foliage, it is very beautiful on Lake Superior. Our show will feature a "at-home" display of quilts with antiques. Follow us on Facebook, Munising Bay Quilt Guild. Our raffle quilt was designed by professional artist Carol Armstrong, who is a member of our guild.  More info as time passes.  Hope to see you there.

Hi Donna, I went to Indian River over the summer and stopped at the quilt store there.  It is a cute place and has lots of great ideas displayed.  You are lucky to have a shop like that in your area.  Quilting is a passion of mine and I love to visit quilt shops when ever we travel.  My husband naps in the truck while I browse.  He is a keeper.

We have camped at Burt Lake several times and really enjoy the area.  We are about an hour south of you and make it up there a few times a year.  Hope to make it up there again next summer!

Edyta Sytar has many patterns (books) and fabric lines (Moda) that look "rustic". I also like flannels for that look Janie.

I need to come up with a quilt for the back of my couch.  I just repainted my living room and would like something a little rustic or outdoorsy.  any suggestions on pattern or fabric line.

Went to a great "Quilt Camp" just recently and got a queen top done along with a baby quilt and wall hanging quilted. It was so much fun, good food and friends...loved it.

Are any of you going to the quilt show at Sauder Farms in Archbold, OH? It is a really good show with over 400 quilts on display. It runs from Tuesday, April 30-Sunday, May 5.

Janie and Victoria, those all sounds like fun projects.  I have been making progress in cleaning up the sewing room, but still have a long way to go!  I have found many quilts in progress that I need to work on.  I will probably be making 3 baby quilts soon, I hope to use some of the quilts I have already started for those!  For those of you who own a serger, I discovered a wonderful way to store the cones of serger thread!  I used an over the door shoe storage thing with the pouches.  I put all of the cones of the same color in each of the pouches, so when I am trying to find my thread it will be much easier now.

Hi Cheryl and everyone from Michigan. After a long hiatus from quilting, I finally got the opportunity to  start up the sewing machine again and I just finished my Disappearing 9 patch quilt, Fairy Dust. I love this pattern! I am starting on a quilt made from the Story Time Squares pattern. I haven't used this pattern before so I will have to see how it goes.
