  1. Create What You Love....

    by , 03-27-2013 at 09:48 AM
    I am wondering how many of you create what you love instead of creating what is popular at the moment? I recently joined this Quilting Board website, and I see many quilts that are clearly the creation of the quilter, instead of what the market currently has to offer. Its refreshing to see so many sewers out there creating quilts that reflect their own style and fabric choices, instead of quilts that are found in magazine and website advertisements.

    In particular was a very beautiful ...

  3. My first, but not last, string quilt

    by , 03-26-2013 at 10:48 AM
    This was so much fun! Can't wait to make another one. I have some green strips that will be my next effort. Maybe next year. Took a long time tearing off the paper, but surely worth it to keep it from stretching. I still need to quilt it, but it will be in line with the other tops that need to be quilted.

  4. How Does Nature Inspire You to Create?

    by , 03-26-2013 at 06:17 AM
    Today is another one of those WFH (working from home) days because it is snowing pretty steady out and the roads are messy and slippery. I am lucky enough to have the type of job where I can work from home and still get paid to do my job.
    Today's snowstorm is cold, white, fluffy and beautiful because I am not driving in it. While I own a AWD vehicle, its not my own driving that do not trust, its those other NJ/NY drivers that I don't wish to meet as close encounter on my bumper on the highways. ...

  6. Modern Quilting Transition

    by , 03-25-2013 at 07:20 AM
    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. The Modern Quilt Guild of Northern ...

  7. My own personal "Legacy" Quilt --- Not a Dear Jane, but my 'Dear Jenn'

As much as I love looking at them, I didn't have a strong desire to make one. I wanted something a little different - my own blocks that I could pick out myself.
    So this quilt evolved, into something like a biography, something like a charm bracelet, something I could immerse myself

  9. Thread Basting My Quilt Sandwich for FMQ

    There are a couple of key factors that I LOVE about this method of basting:
