I have found the name of this pattern and where it was published. It is called Tahitian Postage Stamp and was featured on the cover of Quilt World Magazine May 1988. I tried to find the link to the…Continue
"Thank you Linda, Ginny, Liz and Riana. That quilt is a huge amount of work. Riana, I didn't fix the alignment issue, I just kind of scrunched in the next couple of hoopings so the applique would still fit on the border. If you look up close you…"
"Both are beautiful Riana!
I finished assembling Valley Blossoms #2 this morning. I also completed the task of removing the stray threads from my green bargello. My plan is to piece the minky backing and start quilting that one today. Here is the…"
"Wow! Awful quiet around here lately. I have completed one full border and all the embroidery on the left borders on the Valley Blossoms quilt. I have also got all of the quilting picked out of the green bargello and have started removing all the…"
"I started embroidery on the first border of the Valley Blossoms quilt today. Laid it out wrong from the first section and now it's 2.5 inches too far left...I am not picking it out so I will have to make it work. Here is a progress photo from…"
"Kris your French Braid quilt is beautiful! I love the look of those quilts and your quilting is great!
Liz-Poor kitty! I had a female cat who had never had to ride in a car carrier because I had a mobile vet who always came here to do house calls.…"
"Riana-it is an Anthology wide batik backing. I do plan to "skin" the quilt from the back. I have ordered green minky and plan to gift this to my 7 yo grandson since he asked me about it yesterday when visiting."
"Well, the batik backing I used on this bargello performed horribly! It looks like the top thread is pulling through to the back, but it isn't. What it appears to be is the threads in the backing being cut and pulled through the needle holes. I…"
"Thank you all for your kind words. Grief is the price of love, unfortunately.
I love the Secret Window quilt Liz.
I have finally been able to find a wide green batik backing for my bargello. I am hoping it will be here next week so I can get that…"
"Wow, so much activity here the last few days.
Liz, I love the quilt and the label. What a great name you suggested Ginny!
Riana and Linda, I can totally relate to the chaos caused by home improvements. My studio isn't 100% done and the…"
"I have progress on my PHD's! I finished piecing the top for the green Argyle Bargello! Thank the sweet baby Jesus. Here it is, the first top to hang on my design wall in my new studio! Now I need to figure out the backing since I used the one I…"
"I am happy to say that I am finally starting to sew again! I don't have everything set up, but it is set up enough that I can get in the room and enjoy it. I have made great progress on the green bargello, only about 8 rows left to make on the…"
"Good morning everyone. I have not been on in a while so I just wanted to pop in and see what has been happening. Kris, I love your wedding star quilt. I made one a few years ago that was a large queen...it took me 5 years to finally finish it! Those…"
"Thank you Liz. I am pretty excited it is finally at the move in stage.
That is a great idea too Riana! I have several quilts just hanging out in the guest room right now without a bed to be displayed on. We will see what the shelving space looks…"
"Thank you Linda and Riana. Those are IKEA Billy bookcases with the glass doors. I wanted to try to keep the dust off the fabrics as best I could. I started moving my fabrics in tonight and I don't think I will even come close to filling half of…"
"Cabinets are all in and I have one more double-dresser style piece to assemble and then everything will be ready for moving in! I am going to start putting fabric in the cabinets tomorrow. Here is one wall with cabinets. I have one book case that…"
"The studio is finally at a point where we can start to move things in! I was hoping to get some of my new cabinets assembled and installed today, but my BIL didn't show up, so I put together one of them myself. There are some minor drywall and…"
"Wilma-What a great sewing space! It is nice that the furniture matches so it looks planned! All of my items in my new room will be white. I did plan that...lol..
LOVE the quilt Liz. Princesses and Villains! What a great idea."
