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

As much as I love looking at them, I didn't have a strong desire to make one. I wanted something a little different - my own blocks that I could pick out myself.
    So this quilt evolved, into something like a biography, something like a charm bracelet, something I could immerse myself

  3. Thread Basting My Quilt Sandwich for FMQ

    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

  8. Another pattern hunt

    by , 03-23-2013 at 04:42 PM
    I'm looking for a pattern that will use nothing but madras plaids, probably in 6" squares. This will be a quilt for my 2 year old grandson and has been requested by my daughter. I really just need to know how much fabric to purchase of 4 - 5 different plaids. She will probably want a queen size quilt and I'm not experienced enough to wing it and just go buy fabric and start sewing. Anyone have any suggestions for me?

    by , 03-23-2013 at 06:39 AM
    So, how did you spend National Quilting Day 2013? It typically falls on the middle Saturday in March. That was this past weekend. It was quilting, friendship, birthdays and St. Patrick's Day all wrapped up into two days.
    I, for one, was lucky enough to have had my best friend over for a visit. We ran the roads, we ate, we laughed, we did show and tell and dodged snowflakes. Martha is such a cool pal. She's easy going with a wicked sense of humor and my little JRT LOVES her! Olive can't ...
