Roxanne, thanks for the comment re my Bali Wedding Star quilt. I did buy the pattern at my local quilt store, but it can be ordered from Quiltworx.com. It is expensive, as it comes with the paper piecing papers. The kit comes with enough papers to make an 8.8 (rings) and if you want larger then you need more papers. Let me know how you make out. This is my favourite quilt to date and am so tickled at how it turned out. Good luck. Anne
Thanks, My nephew and niece are in the service my niece is celebrating 25 years in the airforce and her husband 23 years. I made quilts for them both and their two daughters one with their pictures on the quilt when they were both on active duty to comfort them while their parents were away. They are 6 & 8 years old
hi roxanne...and gee you and ricky too? fabric has been following me home for years...and then i learned to quilt...sigh...it is soooo still following me...and when dh travels to temporary assignment...it follows him home too!!!!! must be something in the air. fabric fibers ...dunno but i don't fight it either. lollollol
I just had to leave a comment after I read that we've got the same "problem" with fabric following us home!! I sometimes buy fabric not knowing what I'm going to make just because I had to have it! I love your log cabin quilt!
Just wanted to pop in to say “hello” and introduce myself. I’m Linda Hubalek, fellow quilter and author from Kansas. Books about pioneer women are my specialty, with a cooking or quilting theme mixed into each historical fiction series.
My Trail of Thread in written in the form of letters sent back home while my ancestors traveled to Kansas. Each book mentions twelve old-time quilt patterns, and I put drawings of them in the back of the books.
So if you like to read—besides quilting—please enjoy my blog and book excerpts on my website. Besides printed as paperbacks, my ten books are also available for your Kindle or Nook.
I have about a dozen quilts made by my great grandmother, (that we used all the time when I was a kid) so I’m into antique quilts and patterns. What kind of quilts and patterns do you like to work with?
