  1. What to do with an idea?

    by , 04-07-2013 at 05:18 PM
    I have an idea for a new unique use for a product. It could be very profitable to the manufacturer/seller. It would be a new way to market the product and use it. I don't know what to do with my idea. Do I contact the manufacturer or just tell everyone who might buy it and use it? Do you think they will pay me for the idea?
  2. A flowery Union Jack

    by , 04-07-2013 at 11:03 AM
    In my stash was the red and cream, both Liberty fabric scraps, and the navy, a 1980’s Laura Ashley dress, I can’t find a picture of the dress but I guess if you were around in the 80’s you’d remember those dresses, huge mutton leg sleeves, drop waist, voluminous skirts,(think a newly married Princess Diana). Needless to say….. There is enough left to make something else as well, and I already have an idea.

  4. Gold standard pc quilter adapater kit

    by , 04-06-2013 at 10:24 AM
    I recently purchased a New Joy Gold Standard Frame and a PC Quilter in hopes to be able to use them together. To my surprise, they cannot be used together unless I have this adapter in order to place the PC Quilter carriage on the New Joy Frame. The problem is New Joy does not make the Gold Standard Frame anymore and therefore doesn't make the adapter. I am hoping that someone out there is not using their frame and may have the adapter for sale. I have attached a photo of the kit to this post.If ...

  6. tin lizzie and templates

    by , 04-06-2013 at 06:35 AM
    Well I finally bought a LA. Tin lizzie 18. I need suggestions on templates to purchase that are most used. also any advice on quilting. I have been watching Linda Taylor with the quilting school and they are most interesting abd great, but as a newbie, i would appreciate info. I prefer custom rather than edge to edge. Do you break down your quilt in sections and do you stabilize each section or the outside only. thanks for any input.

    It would make things lots simpler if I could just stick with one category, but the wide assortment keeps me smiling and happy!

    Any more QBers out there like me? And oh yes, I adore making the
  8. Goth, Emo,Mosher, what's the difference

    by , 04-05-2013 at 10:56 AM
    Do you know the difference between a Goth, Emo and a Mosher? No, neither do I, but they all wear gloomy clothes and dye their hair black, choose black over any other colour, and don’t laugh much (well that’s just a personal observation, it’s like a season ticket to depression).

Size:  422.8 KBHere's a quilt inspired by Ricky Timms and his work based on the Fibonacci sequence; not mine I’m afraid, made by my Mother at the same time as my first and to the same instructions, I think we may have been lent a book or attended a workshop together.

    When I have a few hours to spare…. Some time in the next 5 years! I think I have the right two fabrics to make another one of these.
