I went to a local quilt show and they had this block as a demontration you made a 4 patch block and then cut 1 1/2 inch from seam on both sides and then you rearranged the cut pieces and made a quilt and now I can't remember how to put it back together. Shirley

The quilt inspector is checking out the back side and said...like cross stitching the back should look as good as the front.
Fast forward two years...the phone rings, lady

When they say OK, you ask if the little stool goes along (with the attachments inside the stool) and it is another yes, you whip out that money and hurry out
Here is a pic of my Singer. It is a 15. Made in the 1950s. I bought it at a yard sale in 1980 for $25 and have been using it since. I love love my Singer.
yea, I finally got pictures uploaded. This is the quilt I posted that I made for my daughter to give to a friend. It is made out of fleece.
I was able to use one of my die sets to cut out block #21 of The Farmer's Wife (now sitting on my sewing machine waiting to be sewn together).
I was able to finish a small quilt that was made from purple scraps cut into 3.5 x 6.5 inch rectangles - not a large quilt, might need some borders.
Then, I moved onto cutting up some denim I have into 6.5 inch squares - am going to use 2.5 inch squares all the way around each of them to make a quilt.
So many projects,
A trip to Salem for a quilt show, via Dalles for fabric and another shop in Salem ... never did make it to the quilt show. We had a fun day anyway.
I was able to buy more fabric for a quilt I am going to make for my daughter - Twister - and my friend was able to purchase a back for a quilt she is making for her granddaughter.
A lot of driving and visiting.
I would like to quilt the front of my GD lap quilt differently from the back. It's a strip quilt on the front which I would stitch in the ditch. I want the otheside to look different. Would I use two pieces of batting and connect them when I bind it? I know this sounds like a silly question, but I'm just not for sure. I want this to turn out great. Thanks!
