I am planning to hit the wonderful Central Market and the Quilt Museum in Lancaster, the Old Country Store in Intercourse, The Fabric Shack in Bird-in-Hand, and the famous fabric superstore in Goodville. I am too scared to take a husband and two kids to Obi's. Wish me luck since

    It is 12:47 am and here I sit. I am past tired but have once again accidentally stumbled upon this site. It appears, I created an account last year in April, but never used it. (I think it got lost).

    I am working on a Raider's quilt, and maybe this site, blog, and the friends and family I will meet here, will be just what I need to get and stay on task.

    First order of business... go to bed. (after leaving hubby a note to wake me at 4am)

Anyone else have this experience and if so , how did you correct it?

    by , 08-08-2013 at 01:43 PM
    As I mentioned in my last post, I have been getting quite a few requests for the paper piecing templates for the Prairie Star block. I am trying to make this blog post to include them. Hope it works. Hope you enjoy them. The PDF includes a coloring sheet and the templates (sample template and it's reverse). Together, they make 1/4 of the block, and are actual size

  5. Prairie Star Quilt Block - Free Pattern: Requests coming in

    by , 08-08-2013 at 01:24 PM
    I posted this in reply a long while ago for someone interested in making a star sampler. I have had lots of requests in the past few weeks for the paper pieced templates. I drew the block in EQ7.

  8. camping and sewing

    by , 08-06-2013 at 12:31 PM
    I am a new memeber to this blog. I noticed a discussion about taking sewing machines on a camping trip. I am going camping in a pop-up for 3 weeks. Would love to take my machine. Has anyone ever taken their machine in a pop-up? I noticed no one took it in a tent. My main concern is condensation. Of course when I am not using the machine, it will be in my pop-up. We are dry inside, but it is cool in the morning (Maine) and there is some general dampness. I am leaving this Friday Aug. 9, 2013. I ...
