  1. My first, but not last, string quilt

    by , 03-26-2013 at 10:48 AM
    This was so much fun! Can't wait to make another one. I have some green strips that will be my next effort. Maybe next year. Took a long time tearing off the paper, but surely worth it to keep it from stretching. I still need to quilt it, but it will be in line with the other tops that need to be quilted.

  2. How Does Nature Inspire You to Create?

    by , 03-26-2013 at 06:17 AM
    Today is another one of those WFH (working from home) days because it is snowing pretty steady out and the roads are messy and slippery. I am lucky enough to have the type of job where I can work from home and still get paid to do my job.
    Today's snowstorm is cold, white, fluffy and beautiful because I am not driving in it. While I own a AWD vehicle, its not my own driving that do not trust, its those other NJ/NY drivers that I don't wish to meet as close encounter on my bumper on the highways. ...

  4. Modern Quilting Transition

    by , 03-25-2013 at 07:20 AM
    I joined a local Modern Quilt Guild a few months back. I had dropped out of my traditional local guild a few years ago because I lost interest in the traditional ways of making quilts and frankly all of the politics associated with being a very active member of a guild for a long time. I really did not miss the duties associated with the old guild. I just wanted to get together with people that I share an interest with and have some fun and inspire one another. The Modern Quilt Guild of Northern ...

  5. My own personal "Legacy" Quilt --- Not a Dear Jane, but my 'Dear Jenn'

    So this quilt evolved, into something like a biography, something like a charm bracelet, something I could immerse myself

    Althouth I often spray-baste on smaller quilts, when they are bigger and harder to handle, I prefer to thread-baste so everything stays in place better, and I don't have to worry about the glue coming loose and the sandwich shifting while I'm quilting.

    There are a couple of key factors that I LOVE about this method of basting:

    1. There is NO crawling

    1. I sew my individual blocks into rows, but don't sew the rows into one top. Generally I like my blocks to be 6-7 inches. I realize there is no vertical quilting lines using this method, but me and others
