I know that we have to quilt 2 queen size quilts a month to make our payment, so it's not really that much. We padded our loan just a bit to pay for supplies as well.
The quilts I had custom work done were really done pretty well. The panto quilts were good too, but
I am new to the quilting board. I was looking for place to share my quilts and see new ideas.
I have only been sewing about 2 years, and I have not had any quilting lessons. I also love to attempt art quilts and mixed media. I look forwad to sharing with others and seeing what is new in the quilting community.

What is the trick to using variegated thread on a long arm? I am a new long arm quilter and am having a hard time when using this thread. I've used two different brands, different size needles and just can't get it to work. HELP Please.
I remember watching my grandmother sew quilts by hand when I was a little girl. Her only tools were a needle, thread, fabric (probably old clothes or feed sacks), scissors, thimble, card board templates and a rustic quilt frame that was stored at the top of the dining room ceiling when not in use. If you are like me, wouldn't you just love to take your grandmother or great grandmother to a quilt guild or a bee meeting or better yet, to one of the large quilt shows around the country? I know
my first quilt i have ever made. I made it from my baby boys old pjs and clothes , its far from perfect but i love it.
What to do with 5in. blocks?
