"Kathy - we live in our RV 6 months out of the year and in a mobile home the other 6 months. Absolutely necessary: a comfortable bed - whatever it takes. A drinking water hose with a filter, and an adjustable water pressure…"
"Finished this quilt top last night. It's a mystery quilt from Minnesota Quilters. I started it in January and the last clue came out October 1. It's a queen size, and I don't really have a place big enough to show it off…"
"Mary - yay for passwords that work! Wish we could all blow that bad air away from you.
Riana - if you find it - or remember it - let me know. All the versions I have found just call it Shoo Fly. I'm sure it will come to you in…"
"Riana - that block is made just like a Shoo Fly block, but with the colors arranged differently. 5 squares, all the same size, and 4 half square triangles in the corners. A true Shoo Fly uses only 2 contrasting colors.
"Chris - that quilt is just wonderful! Good luck with getting it loaded this weekend. Happy quilting!
Elizabeth - you made me laugh with your good behavior story! I could pretend you are a little puppy and pat you on the…"
"Zoe - you remind me a meme I saw on facebook this month. Picture cheerleaders leading the cheer at a football game and substitute these words: Who are we? We are quilters!
What do we do? We buy fabric!
What do we…"
"I am here in Santa Rosa, New Mexico! We had a 'stay put' day in Texas yesterday, and got more done on a second Star Spin pillow cover that I am making for a friend in New Zealand. Once we are settled in AZ I will start the Red Dragon…"
"Elizabeth and Riana - love those placemats! I make placemats when I'm experimenting with a quilting pattern, and I use them between dishes in the RV when travelling in addition on on my table. I have several sets and am thinking…"
"I do hope, on this beautiful Sunday morning, that you are all staying safe from the fires and other weather related disasters out there!
For those of you who have seen Ricky Tims videos - I have not, and never thought to look on youtube for…"
"Riana - that double piping is lovely!
My first attempt at a Ricky Tims' Kaleidoscope quilt. Not very good, but now that I know how it works, I think I can do a much better job the second time around. "
"Goodness, Zoe - what a busy, hard working day. No wonder you are exhausted. So glad you and your neighbors are all safe! Looking forward to hearing more about your new neighbor. You will have such a good time learning all…"
Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
Mother and grandmother, manager at 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?
8? 9? 10? I've lost track.
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.
