    As the cooler temperatures have begun to move in, I am getting ready for the quilting season. My hours at work will decrease and I am getting ready. I took the first batch of patterns to my printer with instructions to enlarge 200% up to 600%. Many of the patterns will be multiples put together into a single quilt. A garden quilt for my sister is a still life type with gloves, tools, hat and other things. In the background will be a wheelbarrow loaded with stuff and in the foreground will be a basket ...

    My niece works for the nursing home and she said they could. But thanks for mentioning it to me just in case! Have a great day and thanks again.

    The piece isn't finished yet, but wanted to show you what I was working on today!

  7. Need help with ideas for a workplace project using fabric

    by , 09-14-2012 at 09:06 AM
    I am looking for some ideas for some sort of project (using fabric) that I can present at our next staff meeting this month. Our employees consist of 18 people, men and women aged from 18-65, most not sewists. Initially, thought about all contributing to making a wall hanging-but with most not familiar with sewing, not sure how that would work. Can anyone help?
