  1. Locating Old Quilts

    by , 11-02-2012 at 01:18 PM
    Hello...
    I'm new on here, as of today! I love quilting and recently, I've been interested in learning more about Texas quilts and their makers. My mother passed away in April and we took her "home" to Roxton, Texas for burial. Her mother quilted a lot from about 1905-1955 in that area. I'm not sure this is possible, but how do I trace any quilts that she made?

    When she passed away in 1960 in Roxton, all of her quilts and many of her personal home items were taken by ...

    Math: I started with 5” squares and my HSTs were each slightly over 2” (They will ultimately finish at 1.5” in the quilt). You will lose

  7. Hurricane Sandy = House Destroyed Part 2

    You'll have to forgive me if I sound confused. I am not thinking clearly. Just

    gone as is the sand and the ocean is ... well, the fancy pants condo owners ...

  8. Hurricane Sandy = House Destroyed

    by , 11-01-2012 at 08:55 AM
    The good news is we are alive.

    Right now my phone is charging but most of the cell towers were knocked out so
    reception is very sketchy. Can't really make a call. They take forever to charge
    too, so only texts. Sometimes have to stand on top of a
    car and turn around to find a signal. So that's why everything is sketchy.

    There is no Red Cross, no FEMA. Nothing. There is a curfew from 6am to 7pm
    because we heard there was looting. At city hall they ...
