Profile Information

Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I started quilting in the 80s, but then stopped for some time because I went back to work. I started again about 5-6 years ago. I like all different types of quilts, patchwork, applique, traditional, country, modern. I think that's my problem, I like too many things that's why I want to make so many different quilts. Now that I have grand children I make one quilt for each for Christmas.
Thank you for the opportunity to share and receive quilting information.
How many quilts have you made?
50 or more if you count everything, small, large, pillows, table runners
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?

Quilting in Finland

Posted on April 24, 2012 at 12:07pm 2 Comments

I have a quiltig friend in Finland.We have  never  met in person, but we are keeping in touch by email. I met her on line several years ago when I was looking for quilting information from Europe to add to our guild's newsletter.At one time we both made the same quilt, a wall quilt with Canadian motives (moose, cottage, lake, bear, etc.) and we exchanged the photos. That was fun and interesting. 

Maarit seems to be quilting all the time when you see all the things she makes. Visit her…


Sailboat Pattern

Posted on April 17, 2012 at 3:18pm 10 Comments

I am looking for a pattern with sailboats and would appreciate if anyone could direct me to one, preferably patchwork, but some applique would be nice too.

Thank you in advance,

lrmgard, l saw your request for getting sharp corners in redwork...but l'm not a member there. l use the stem st. as well, w/straight & french knots for effect. l find l can get a sharp poiint if l take my normal st. at the corner, then after next st. l come up at the point & do a tiny couching st. in the corner st. to hold it exactly where l want it. Other times l just don't "overlap" around a corner, but end at corner w/tiny split st., piercing the thread right on the point. l don't sew over batting...l keep from crossing behind at all costs, keeping work neat by retracing/threading through back to work to nearby area. lf it's a big jump, l cut/end tgen restart in new place.

thank you for your comment

The Cdn group was formed to have a little more presence for Canadians- on the My Quilt Place site there are tons and tons of groups for all quilters.  It is not like Canada eh- is the only group

I do not make any apologizes for forming this group- and as you probably know, one can ask anyone on the site to become a friend and almost anyone can join a group with a request.

When the quilter, (whom I am sure is a nice lady) a spits throw from Canada made her initial contact on our group page, her buzz words of "not being snubbed" set off a motion of activity as buzz words like that tend to do- she could see it was a Cdn group before she sent her initial e-mail...just like their is a washington group, and others.

Quilters, whatever their nationality are wonderful people...and quilting is a global link/but this group was formed for Cdns- to share canadian content, stories, news and swaps- specific to us.

thank you- Eileen

Thank you for your kind comments.  The quilt you liked is from the book, Great American Quilts,1993" published by Oxmore House, Inc.  They don't know the name either.

hi irmard. yes...quilting is a link to the world for us...and here on mqp we have quilters from saudi arabia, australia, holland scotland canada and of course, the us of a. tho my friend and i have spent many hours over the years, chatting on phone and net and emails jokes, pattern exchanges, fab exchanges - we will prob never meet in person. she has had ra since childhood...i have been arthritic since teens...and of course by this time in our lives everything has progressed to point that we are both pretty much home least to the point that extended flights are not that easy for us anymore. we had thought that we could maybe swim out and meet in the middle of that big pond....she even considered going down to dock behind her house, jumping in her childrens rowboat tied up there. head out the canal to the zeider sea [sp lollol] and across that pond, down around the horn, up the coast and up the columbia r to the yakima r ...then call for directions...when to bottom of my cliff i could throw a rope down to her....then we decided would prob be a lot easier to swim to middle of the pond hug and yak...head back to our respective shores. we have so much fun with our chats etc...sometimes we find ita  rather strange feeling that we can't just go out our front door and trot on over to her or my house and share a cup of tea in real time instead of cyber time.

i have in past chatted with friends in england, ireland, sweden, holland, australia, new zealand, russia, korea etc. tho quilting does, in its way bind us together into a global unit...the internet is the mechanism which makes it possible...

all hail the net!!!! lollollollol..w/o which i would not have stumbled into this lovely little web site and met so many wonderful quilters from u.s.a. and canada and other places around world.

Hi Irmard:  Loved your pic's that you posted.  The quilt I posted was made for a 2 yr old boy.  I firmly believe that the younger they are, the more color and images they need.

I have 5 granchildren, 2 great grandaughters. Whoa! Do I ever feel needed.

I think I live approx. 3 hrs. driving time,to Quebec.  Back to my sewing room.

Florence  - I love patch work!
