Today was a busy day for me, I had a my column to write for our paper, "The quilter's corner", and then I had several numbers I had to call about our first guild meeting, and our quilting bee. So my weeks are getting shorter, class on Sat and Tue, for 4H, quilting bee on Wed.s and two guild meeting each month. Have a group page set up for our guild which I will also have to keep up, so will be busy and having lots of quilty fun over the next months' What with finishing the quilt i started
Enjoying the fall temperatures!
Your sampler is coming along beautifully. I sent a message, stating that the "Famers's Puzzle" block is very similar to a quilt our church group hand quilted for my girlfriend. We did not know the name and sisnce I have misplaced my camera could not post a picture. When it is found I will do so. Happy Quilting!!

It's really fun to make them!!!!
I just found this video on YouTube, which I feel can be VERY helpful to anyone buying a new sewing machine.
He shows why you shouldn't buy a "big box store" machine. I just felt it may help save some heartaches and wallet woes.

First we have the front...

I am wondering, what is the difference between Hobbs 80/20 and Warm and Natural, from your experience?
Thanks in advance, to all you wonderful people, for your expertise!

How many HOURS should I plan on spending at each store - Marshall's Dry Goods, Hancock's of Paducah and Quilt In A Day in Paducah? We plan on arriving at Marshalls around 1 PM on my first day.

So excited that at the last minute I have decided to make the trip to Des Moines, IA for AQS Quilt Week!!!! I will drive up Friday after work, with my daughter, and go to the show on Saturday.
I was originally thinking of taking a Free Motion Quilting class Saturday but since my daughter is going to be able to go with me I will pass on the class. With over 1600 Quilts on display there should be plenty to do!
I have never been to a Quilt Show so pretty

One is for Web Pages, and another one is for Email. I use whatever one I am going to use the picture for. It
