Sandy, with some of her friends, were very creative in designing the borders for this wallhanging. I took inspiration from the quilt for my quilting ideas. SID narrow borders, outlined the birds, some continous curves, stippling, a whirling motif in some

    Remember when Postal Packin Mama posted this quilt earlier this summer? Well, I was so inspired that I just had to make one of my own. I never dreamed that it would use up so many scraps, but my scrap drawers are now empty and I am one happy camper! It's big 120" by 120" and heavy, which will be wonderful come winter time. It's pieced with a QAYG method. Thanks Postal

    Several months ago, I bought Gyleen X. Fitzgerald's book, Trash to Treasure Pineapple Quilts, and the accompanying pineapple ruler. It took me quite awhile before I attempted to make the blocks. Once I started, it was hard to stop. I was up way past my bedtime making this small wall hanging. I hand sewed the binding while sitting on the porch. It was sooooo relaxing! I call it "Peaceful Pineapples."

  6. Help finding a book!

    by , 08-28-2012 at 05:47 AM
    Hi Does anyone know where I can purchase Rings that Bind by Cherly Phillips without spending an arm and leg? I saw it for sale for $23.00 sent for it, they were sold out, looked on ebay they wanted the arm, looked at Barns and Noble and they wanted the arm and leg, it is no longer in print, so they tell me it will cost a fortune. I don't want to remorgage the house, I just want to purchase a book. Can anyone help me? If you have one around and would like to sell it, I would love to have it.

  7. Bernina QE 440

    by , 08-28-2012 at 05:42 AM
    Wow can I relate to you, Shirley, I bought the Bernina and didn't touch it for 6 months left it in the box, was afraid of it thinking I would touch something and break it! Took a class, and honestly got next to nothing out of it. I have learned to appreciate and totally love my Bernina. Experiment and trial and errors don't be afraid of it, read the instruction book (which is not always clear for new machines, espcially computer ones) I did learn to unplug the foot petal completely, make sure the ...

Mom has always been a generous individual and I want to keep in the spirit. Can anyone please tell me where I can donate these items in Plano, Texas, to maximize the use of everything?
