Hi everyone, thanks so much for giving me such fun ideas. It's good to be able to have all those links in one location that I can easily find. Thank you again
That sounds like a great and quick quilt once you get going.
Those are some very pretty quilts ... I have only put one quilt in a show and it was so much fun to stand back and listen to comments when the people didn't know I had made it. Thankfully, there weren't any negative comments (at least I didn't hear any).
I'm looking for ideas for a quilt for my grandson. He is 5 & is autistic. I was wanting to to make either a throw or twin. Any suggestions
w7sue - very good ideas you left me with. thank you very much
I have taken some of my favorite books to FedEx and had them spiral bound so they wouldn't fall apart - I love being able to lay them flat. I usually make a color copy of the pattern I am using and keep it with the project - that way the book stays nice and I can write on my copy - keeping track of progress, etc.
I have tried the ABC method - works sometimes, but really I have my hard cover books together, the little thicker ones with title on binding but not hardcover together, then the thinner ones are all together. I finally put them on an excel document so I can keep track of what I have and I can keep my list with me (on my iPod) so I don't buy duplicates as often as before.
Sound good to me. I don't have enough wall space for a design wall. I either do a couple of rows at a time and so on, just matching two rows at a time. I have a long countertop in my sewing room w/base cabinets and three upper cabinets. Some times I lay the quilt rows on our bed and mark the rows. Our house is small and pretty full of furnishings. Its not ideal but it works.
