I saw this awesome large tote with dowel handles at the quilt show in Madison, WI that would hold a quilt. I have been searching ever since to find a pattern. I am new to this site and hope that quilters who are always so friendly will take pity and help me find a pattern. Thanks so much
Managed to get to the hospital, see the movie "Silence" and web together the last 3 big blocks tonight. Haven't done the horizontal seams yet because I wanted to wait until I got them all webbed together and finished the 40 sashing units so I could figure out how to press each row. All in all it's been a productive day.
I got a lot of sewing done yesterday, 13 blocks in all, webbing each one together as I went. My design wall isn't big enough to hold them all. So I'm staging them on the cutting area and carrying them down to sew them. By the time I come back up, I've usually forgotten which yellow I used. Pictures of my progress are below. The blocks for the far right side of the quilt are piled on the back of the chair in reverse order. And the block on the top left will actually go on the bottom left in

I've finished trimming weeks 2 through 7 blocks while week 1 still hangs on the mannequin. If I can finish trimming today, perhaps I'll be able to make a design block before the week is out. And another plus, after learning I don't count so well, and had to make a few more week 2, 6, and 7, I now have an ample amount to do the entire quilt with 3 extra squares. Add to that the fact that I had nearly perfect tri recs from week 2. At some point I must have redone them but with all that's happened

I'm in the market for a new machine! I don't really have alot of money to spend, but I want one that will give me the biggest bang for the buck.
I piece quilts and do some quilting on my machine! I would like one that could monogram and/or embroidery.
Any thoughts? I know I should buy from a local quilt shop so that I have someone close to service it!
First I had to take everything off the mannequin, one step at a time.
I've been busy cutting my squares down to size before beginning the task of piecing them all together. So far I've trimmed 195 squares. And this is the pile I have to show for it.
Here's what I've completed so far:
