Quilt or Visit Quilt Sites - That is the Question

Posted on August 19, 2011 at 12:32pm 1 Comment

So, like my Quilt Place friend Briget, I start looking at quilt sites and can't stop. i stayed up late on night this week perusing Fons and Porter, All People Quilt, and about 4 others. I hadn't been on for awhile. I have decided to visit once a month (not on the same night) to keep updated so i won't have to read and read and read. Plus it will give my printer a rest since I still like hard copies of most things. That is because I use my desktop and my laptop so I would have items saved on…

I have read Lover's Knot. All of Fowler's are great!  There is a book out with quilt blocks to sew from the Benni Harper books. I think it is published by C&T Publishing. Will be perfect for that novel quilt.

Summer Reading

It's summer so I have been reading at the pool, at the beach, in the backyard and on trips. Guess what most of my reading selections have been? Quilting novels!!! I like the simple"cozies" - quilting mystery novels especially. They are quick reads that I can finish in a day or two. Of course, I have read and re-read most of Jennifer Chiaverini's books and I have enjoyed Emilie Richards quilt themed novels.  The Benni Harper stories are fun as well.  I started a quilt novel book club…

Can't do what I want...yet anyway

Ever since I got back from Lancaster PA (AQS Show) a few weeks ago, I have been itching to try some techniques from two books I bought there.  

The first book is Cotton Theory by Betty Cotton. Using this technique you end up making 2 quilts (reversible) and quilt one block at a time.  Looks complex but is supposed to be easy. It certainly looked that way at the demo.

The second book is Friendship Strips and Scraps by Edyta Sitar. Some of the patterns here combine appliqué and…

You are so lucky to have guilds to join!  I sure wish there was something in my area; as it is the only quilters I talk to are here.  Which is better than nothing!  I've been in kind of a quilting slump, so I'm spending more time here than I normally would...I need that quilting bug to come back and bite me!

Hi again, Sheila!  I was here for a week or so before I put some picures up and posted on my blog.  I've never had a blog, so this is kind of fun for me.  I did join several groups right away so I could get to know others, but it seems like I meet other quilters quicker if I say hello when I see someone new has joined or has a birthday (the birthdays are on the main page at the bottom right...I just discovered that a week ago).  Do you belong to other on-line quilting groups?  I don't.  This place seems to have everything in one place, and it keeps me busy enough (I don't want to spend too many hours on the computer every day!). 

Have you joined any groups?  I joined piecing, machine quilting, traditional quilts, scrappy quilts and a few others.  Plus I started one for newbies.  I was hoping there would be a group for art quilters because I want to learn more about different techniques.

Anyway, didn't mean to write so much!  I can definitely be long-winded!

Happy Birthday, Sheila!  Hope it's a great one!

I've been here for a few weeks now and I'm really having fun.  I don't belong to facebook or twitter and I don't blog (except for here now), so this is all really new to me.  I've been quilting for almost 6 years and like most quilters, I'm totally hooked!  I never learned to sew until I made that first quilt and I just couldn't believe that I actually made it myself.  I think that's what got me excited enough to move on to the next one.  And then I learned about having a stash!  Oh boy!  I was hooked for sure!

Anyway, I just wanted to say hello and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
