"The grandsons are 4 - more or less, lol. One turned 4 in August, and one will be 4 in October. They haven't seen the quilts yet. I might drive up there next week and deliver them. Even with gas at $3 a gallon it would be…"
"Riana - Visions of the East is not going to get done this year. I will sandwich it while in AZ over the winter, and quilt it next summer. Same with Jewel Box quilt.
For the rest of this year I'll be finishing a doll house…"

I use a very thin cotton batting with it, and Olfa 505 spray to put it…"
"Thanks, Riana! I love using rulers for quilting.

"Riana - I seriously doubt if I can get Visions of the East quilted this summer. It is assembled, and I will get it sandwiched while I'm in AZ, using my daughter's big table, but the quilting won't happen until next year. …"

Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
Mother and grandmother, retired from Olive Garden, sewer, knitter, crocheter and quilter. Learning to free motion quilt now. Working on a Judy Neimeyer Mariner's Compass quilt (that I probably will not quilt myself) and a Bali Jewels quilt that I am going to quilt myself.
How many quilts have you made?
I've lost track. Somewhere around 20 to 30 I think. And lots of other quilted things.
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?
I am making quilts, and I'm enjoying seeing pictures of other quilter's quilts.
