You Say Goodbye and I Say Hello

Posted on December 24, 2018 at 5:00pm 1 Comment

Every once in awhile, you meet a person who is so very special in so many ways and you feel so fortunate to know them.  This is true of my friend and former supervisor, Catena Bergevin.  Catena and I worked together for about four years at The Westmoreland Museum of American Art and she hated anyone to introduce her as "my boss." This October, she married her…

My first born granddaughter, Ruby Charlotte is only 4 years old.  She is normal sized as 4 year olds go, maybe a little tall and fun to be with.  She and her brother (and mom and dad of course) spent nine days with us at Thanksgiving and as soon as they left, I got started on finishing up her Christmas quilt and here it is.  The funny thing is (and the reason…

Posted on December 24, 2018 at 4:30pm 0 Comments

If 2013 was the year of the Christmas quilt for me, this year was the year of the Christmas pillow.  I got this crazy idea that I could make Christmas pillows out of ugly (or not so ugly) Christmas sweaters so off to the Thrift stores I trotted.  I ended up making 18 pillows.  You can see all but one in my album, "Christmas 2018 Pillows." After making a few, I…

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…

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.

Thanks for asking me to be you friend.

 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.
