    This year I am absolutely, positively going to FINISH the Hawaiian quilt I set aside last July when I got the last stitch of applique done on it. It's not a quilt until it's quilted, right? So far, I managed to get the top, batting and backing basted together (3 hours) and the center part outline quilted (4 hours). Another 2000 hours, this puppy should be done!!!! :lol:

    I'm starting the new year with 4 baby quilts, 2 for new grandchildern and 2 of new great nieces or nephew Moms don't know what they're having yet but will soon.
    1 due March 2 in April last in May.
    My husband doesn't quilt but keeps coming up with ideas of what I should do. Don't know how many hours he thinks is in a day to do all he thinks I should do. I did get him to cut stips once. He was quiet for 2 days. He is supported of my quilting, and gave up a little of his space for me till I can get that back room cleaned out.

    lol, I'm just in shock this year is over, I really don't know where the last 3 months went to.
    But if I keep track of time in 2007 I have a memory quilt for my In-laws wedding anniversary to make by July. I'm just thankful my sil is naive enough to promise to take care of all the pictures so I just have to make the whole thing.
    And I would just love to make my husband an Irish chain quilt, I'd never made one, but was actually looking at that pattern a couple nights ago thinking that it would be great for him next Christmas. His family is big into the whole Irish thing...so I really think he'd like it.
    Someday, I'd just love to finish the quilt I started for our bed a year or so ago, it just a four patch alternating with a crazy patch. But everytime I think I'll pull it out something else comes up. Oh well, I just won't be surprized if that's on my list to do in 2008.

    Happy New Year Everyone!

    I have recently been asked by the local American Cancer Society Group to make a quilt for their 2007 Christmas Cotillion silent auction. I am soooo excited. 1) for the opportunity to help in such a worthwhile cause (who amoung us hasn't had a family member oa friend affected by cancer) and 2) to work with such a wonderful group of people. They will combine my lap size quilt with a hand made cedar chest and several delicately embroidered linens. But what to quilt??? I want it to be very special. Any ideas??? Would appreciate your input.

    God Bless,
    Vicky

    Why some type of pink ribbon quilt, seeing breast is still among the top killer of women.

    Gotta agree...stay outta my room and outta my stuff! Like others, my honey is VERY supportive and has helped cut out many a block for me but I think that's as far as I want him to go. He's a perfectionist on all things he does so I'm pretty sure he'd have trouble quilting if a point wasn't pointy!

    This year (as of yesterday's brain storm) I would like to make Picture memory wall hangings for our kids. We just came home from our annual Beach Christmas trip and after seeing all the pictures of our wonderful family that's what I decided i would like to do. Will attache a picture of the "Beach Bowl" football game we played New Years Eve Day.

    Happy New Year everyone.

    I read somewhere that if you clip the ends of the selvages at an angle, it keeps the selvages from raveling so bad. It works, but it also tells you at a glance whether the fabric has been washed or not. Another tip on washing fabrics (gleaned from some quilting magazine) is to accordian fold the fabric then Pin the selvage edged together with large safety pins. When fabric comes from washer, give it a shake, holding onto the edge with the pins, then when it comes out of the dryer, give it another shake to straighten it out. It is amazing how smooth the fabric comes out. I've used this with long yardages--no more tangled messes.
