  2. declared war on my scrap bag: resulting reversible QAYG quilt

    I used Warm & Natural batting. It's a bit heavy as it's got so many (thousands,

    by just turning it over.

    This one is "Buggy Wheels". I used white sashing and white binding on this side.

  3. A good day of quilting with friends

    by , 06-20-2012 at 11:01 PM
    I spent six hours at my local quilt shop quilting with friends. It has been a few weeks since I had been and it was good to catch up with everyone.

    I had a stack of flannel sample squares that were given to me to make some charity quilts with. I have made one, and was able to decide on and cut out two more. There was enough that one of my friends purchased the rest of it to make one for herself. I now have money to give to the group to spend on supplies for more quilts!
  4. need packing advice

    by , 06-20-2012 at 12:56 PM (New Moda BOM "Spring Bouquet")
    We are celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary with a first trip to Ireland for 2 weeks. We have decided to "travel light" and take only one carry-on each. I have always overpacked for trips in the past, and have sworn to learn how to get by with less. Can anyone help me with suggestions? Has it worked for you or is it worth it to lug a bigger suitcase? We are renting a car and will be in and out of many hotels, so wanted to make it easy on ourselves. Thanks in advance!

Those darn little HST on the corners. Course if I'd cut them bigger would have been fine but I was limited to the amount of fabric I had. Time for shower and lunch (or maybe the vice versa as it is 1:30pm)

  10. Hand quilting

    A few weeks ago I visited a Amish lady, who had a couple of quilts for sale. One was a storm at sea, finished, and the second one was a fan quilt she had on the frame. Now every thing I have been taught and learned has been that you start quilting in the middle and work out. Correct? Well not so with with Rachel, she had quilted all of the out side borders, and was then working on the blocks and sashing row by row. She did NOT have a single pucker on the back of either quilt. I know this, as they ...
