"Mary, that quilt will be such a hit! I think that it will sell lots of tickets. It just has a different look to it - not the same kind of quilt people are used to.
Barbara, I saw a gorgeous fall quilt today on Scrap Quilt…"
There might be more than 2 projects in those blocks you brought home. I spent all day Monday sewing blocks (red and white log cabin blocks) for QOV at a sew-in. Today I took back the two QOV that I had repaired and requilted…"
"Thank you, Linda, Barbara, Mary and Ginny! The pigs are hard to find in the photo. They are in the black, white and pink plaid in the top left block and every other block using that fabric.
I'm machine quilting the Pony Express…"
"Riana, I think I know what you mean about a price tag guns. Does it have a grid to slide under the backing? I have seen those but how do you get the grid under the backing which is binder clipped to the table for tautness?
I sandwiched a…"
"Too early to come back, Riana, it snowed over the weekend. I'm sure your friends in Florida will miss you. They will save every orphan block until they see you again. LOL
I am cutting a batt for tomorrow when I sandwich the…"
"I get so wrapped up in my quilting that I forgot my grandson's birthday yesterday. Luckily his partner posted birthday wishes and I could tell him that the card (and the gift inside) will be coming next week and wasn't he fortunate…"
"I'm even more proud of you because your back is an art quilt! Riana, that quilt will really look great front or back!
Barbara, I try to line up the quilt top with the pieced backing when I sandwich the quilt but then I ignore the back when I…"
If you downloaded the pattern from her blog, it should be a file on your computer and you can just attach the file to an email. Otherwise, if you scan it to your computer, again it will have a file name and can be attached. I'm not in any hurry to start...so many other things to do and my good machine is in the shop. But thank you so much for helping me out!
The "wood grain" quilting sounds interesting, can't wait to see the whole quilt done.Remember l signed up for the free online longarm class? lt said for best results, use a computor ( instead of tablet etc.) , so l closed it, deciding to use computor later. Now it won't come up.l wonder if there was a time limit.l wish l'd taken it on the tablet, even if not as good as on computor.
Smart idea, about the mug rugs...l would never have thought of fabric gluing...l'd have probably gone to snipping/pulling out the poor handwork , washed & redone w/machine. Not likely a" profitable" use of time:)
