Making decisions and living in chaos

Hello Campers:I have not posted since winter had us by the throat and would not let loose (it lasted til the end of April, for God’s sake) so here I am again to give you an update on what is happening around the quilting house of Leiner Inc.  In a nutshell, I am stuck on making quilt tops (and only quilt tops) that have “inchers,” or one inch squares as I am told they are called.  There is a reason for this, of course.  There always is a reason and that is the story for today.If you remember my…See More

"Perfect cabinet for your lovely quilts. And how lucky for you that your family has a history of quilting. My folks never heard of or had seen quilts ( only quilted " bedspreads"). "

I haven't talked about it much here but I have decided I am a tired old dog.  I have an excuse of course.  Every old dog does and here is mine.

In March 2017, I had my artificial knee on the left replaced with a new artificial knee as the old one came loose and moved left.

In October 2017, they determined the right artificial knee was infected and took it out, replacing it with a spacer for 5 weeks.  Turns out they were wrong, it was not infected (good news for me) but the…

Made the local paper with a piece about Ruby's Christmas Quilt

It's January and apparently a slow news week.   I made the newspaper (print and online version) with a short video and print interview about quilting.  The reporter, Shirley, is a museum friend and called asking me if I would like to talk about quilting.  Can you imagine me saying no???

She asked me to bring my latest project so I brought in Ruby's Christmas quilt.  The top is finished and I think I will wait until I have Sylvia's done as well before I pin and quilt them both.  Maybe…

Of course I would love to be a friend to you, another Ginnie, even if we spell it differently. What's your middle name? Sure hope your knee replacements heal well and you are up and at 'em again soon.

 Just here to introduce myself and welcome you to MQP.

Sometimes we are not sure where to visit on this site but I wanted to let you know that I have a group of gals and I that are doing several different quilts the Blooming Nine and the Jewel Box quilts. We are posting pictures with our choices of fabrics and progress. Carla Walton has done several of the Blooming Nine so she is our administrator. Come on over to view what we are doing at http://myquiltplace.com/group/batik-strip-swap/forum/topics/projects-and-pictures?xg_source=activity.

To do the Jewel Box we have a Batik Strip Swap going on and we are using those strips for the Jewel Box. We just started a Charm Square Swap of either Batik or 100% cotton at http://myquiltplace.com/group/charm-square-swap?xg_source=activity today to use with our Jewel Box Quilt project. Just come on over to join and then you can decide if you want to swap or just do the quilt projects.
