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 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."
"Can't wait to see photos of your room with the new furniture all set up Wilma.
Trim is down in my sewing room but the old garage floor has some high and low spots so I think I need to put some quarter round down to hide the gaps between the…"
"Beautiful quilt Theresa. I like EPP also, especially as a travel project. I have started several...just haven't finished anything. Hand quilting is quite an undertaking! I have never tried it, although my father gave me a frame that he bought…"
"Riana-the plastic that is along the walls will be removed once the tile is finished. It is up there now to protect the new paint from getting dirt and mortar and grout on it during the flooring. We removed the old garage door and put an entry door…"
"Thanks Liz and Linda. The room is 24 x 24 feet, so almost 600 square feet. I am sure that I can fill it up though. I have a bunch of Ikea shelves and cubes, my long arm machine and the new sewing table, plus the cutting and pressing tables I plan to…"
"What a great adventure you had Riana! Those are the things memories are made of, aren't they. Your block is great, but the stories behind it are even better!
The tile was laid in the studio this weekend. We have a hallway outside the room and a…"
"Wilma- I can't wait to see your new sewing room furniture. I ordered the Americana Luxury Sewing cabinet for my Dream Machine to go in my new sewing room. It arrived this week so it is currently in my living room waiting for the sewing studio…"
"Elizabeth-to be honest, our garage has never actually been used to park the cars in the 18 years we have owned this house. It was used to store crap, junk, stuff and tools, mostly. When we were younger, my husband was a mechanic and a car enthusiast…"
