What I would really like is to have categories with photos of the quilts.
So far I have subscribed to Quilter's World digital
Sorry forgot the pics then had to re-size
It's been on my mind lately that I want to start a vegetable garden.
I've been researching quite a bit but now it is time.
I'm thinking this would get me out of the for walls of my house into a little bit of sun that we have been having in between the rain. I've had this dreaded flu for 3 weeks now and need to get up and going now that I am starting to feel better.
It is making me feel a bit more positive and it will show that I am ready to face the world again
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?
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).

So where to find a pattern? I could have spent
I am just starting out here and wondering the cheapest way to go with batting.
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
My son is looking for a sewing machine to hem jeans and sew other heavy duty materials. Does anyone have a recommendation?
This Board is so awesome regarding anything and everything, thought I would ask. Thank you.
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
