I would appreciate any comments about my quilts, i know there are mistakes but i only followed a pattern in my head as i went...i had fun making them and have 6 more grandchildren to make for. each one chooses the colors and the design. they are a one of a kind. you all have a wonderful day...mary
I joined a local Modern Quilt Guild a few months back. I had dropped out of my traditional local guild a few years ago because I lost interest in the traditional ways of making quilts and frankly all of the politics associated with being a very active member of a guild for a long time. I really did not miss the duties associated with the old guild. I just wanted to get together with people that I share an interest with and have some fun and inspire one another.

So this quilt evolved, into something like a biography, something like a charm bracelet, something I could immerse myself

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

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?
