From 00$ to whatever you are willing to pay.
Make another one and then put it side by side, you will have a mirror look.
Flying Geese w/strip joiners.
OMG! Beautiful job! You've inspired me to make another of Judy Niemeyer's.
I am a hexie gal too! Yours is lovely!
I have never tried Inklingo, being afraid it would be too difficult to figure out.
I had the experience of looking for a pattern for a quilt that I knew nothing about except that I liked it. I only knew the name of the magazine it came out of but not when. I went to the magazine's website and "searched" for everything I could until I finally saw a picture of it with the directions. Run searches such as: blue and white quilts (or whatever colors), flying geese patterns, log cabin quilts, etc. Just get creative and you will surely find it.
I'm the same as the above ... have joined a group and we donate to charities but have to force myself out the door for meetings. I'm a happy hermit by nature and some chit-chat just confirms I'm happy being a hermit. We need human interaction but mine is a low level need. Ha
Wow! First he'd get sent to his room without dinner (leaving me time to quilt instead of cook) and he'd go to the Dr for a checkup ASAP. I'd also (like others mentioned) start carrying a pick-me-up snack in my purse.
I checked my issues of Quiltmaker and did not have that magazine. Hope someone will find theirs.
LOVED THAT! I know you must have gotten tired, but I would love it if my hubby left me in a fabric store for hours and hours. I could never be in one for too long.....but, you being a diabetic, I hope you didn't get sick.
So, is this Electric quilt thing you guys are talking about basically a design wall on your computer?
I would be buying fabric and using his credit card stating that it was his apology gift to me. LOL
CharismaH has one and she absolutely loves it. You should look her up here on the board, she posts pictures of her beautiful work.
I love to play on mine as it lets me change colors easily and move blocks around etc. It is easier to see what your quilt or quilt block will look like. You can scan your fabric into your computer and then add those fabrics to the EQ program. so you can see your own fabrics in your designs.
It's a great way to preview what colors and prints you do or don't want to use.
Anything you see me post as my own designs has been designed on my EQ.
I bought EQ5 about 5 yrs ago and love love it. I have 6 and 7 now. I design on mine all the time. If you are going to use it to design it is well worth it in my opinion.
I did some lessons on it so you could get an idea of how it works by going through the lessons if you like.
I was using my 5 mostly when I did the lessons so you will see 5 but if 7 varied any from 5 then I showed both of them. 7 just has some things in a different place and it has more bells and whistles than 5. otherwise they work the same way.
i would be taking him to the dr for a memory test!! I have no idea what age you both are but when my parents started reporting things like this get tested, alzheimers(sp?) can be treated in the early stages, please take care of loved ones, then you can laugh later!!
Well, I would be angry, but secretly I would be smiling because he took me along in the first place. If I ask to go and stop at a quilt shop for some reason it is always, "Well, hurry up. Don't talk to anyone. Get what you want and get out of there." I just end up going by myself. This is so funny. ha ha ha ha ha And he even took a shower. Oh so funny!
Buy fabric of course!

I know my hubby is and I always have things on hand for him.
