Can you tell me where to get the pattern or the dimension of your squares. Thanks!

  5. Do you have good tips for making the backing of your quilt?

It is so hard for me to handle big pieces of fabric and have to sew long seams. I will check out some of the suggested places to find wide fabrics. Thanks for the information.

Many girls brougt knick knacks that they set out - we don't do a lot of that any more.

  8. Locating Old Quilts

    by , 11-02-2012 at 01:18 PM
    Hello...
    I'm new on here, as of today! I love quilting and recently, I've been interested in learning more about Texas quilts and their makers. My mother passed away in April and we took her "home" to Roxton, Texas for burial. Her mother quilted a lot from about 1905-1955 in that area. I'm not sure this is possible, but how do I trace any quilts that she made?

    When she passed away in 1960 in Roxton, all of her quilts and many of her personal home items were taken by ...

  9. Fast way to do 8 at a time half square triangles (HST) with straight of grain edges!

    Math: I started with 5” squares and my HSTs were each slightly over 2” (They will ultimately finish at 1.5” in the quilt). You will lose
