I have 14 quilt blocks with the name of the quilter embroidered on it. Based on research through Ancestry.com, I think the blocks were made between 1935 and 1945 by ladies living in a rural town called Hygiene, Colorado (near Boulder). Most blocks were hand sewn while a few were sewn by machine. I would appreciate any advice on how to turn the blocks into the friendship quilt it should be. I'm fairly sure most of the designs use feed/flour sack material with muslin backgrounds. Some pieces need
I got laid off from Kennedy Space Center in July 2011. I'm currently volunteering there (in the VAB),talking about how me and mt co-workers"The Sew Sisters" hand sewed parts and quilted quartz fabric with a Multi Needle Sewing Machine to cover the outside surface of the shuttle. As part of my presentation, I show tiles ,cargo bay blankets,Thermal Control Blankets(TCS),Fibrous Insulation Blankets(FIB)---Those quilted blankets that cover the upper/sides of the shuttle and other neat items.
I am new to the quilting board but came across an article or thread from January 28, okay so I'm behind the times, anyway and the discussion was about crocheted dish clothes. I am not a great crochet person but does anyone have the pattern for these?

I ordered a walking foot for my Singer Simple® yesterday. My model # wasn't listed but one of the reviews stated she uses it on hers. I have so much to learn about sewing/quilting on a machine. I love to create and if it makes it faster then..... All I can do is read, watch videos and try. I see all these beautiful quilts and patterns in aww. So many techniques, ruler/cutting methods... it tends to be a bit overwhelming. With that said, I will find one that jumps out at me and then research.
I'm looking for Harry Potter fabric - any reasonable scraps for applique or yardage - for a crib set for my new grandson whose mother is a huge Potter fan. The crib is non-standard size so I am going to make fitted sheets, a quilt, sleepsuit, teething rail cover and valance. Apliqued Potter shapes or coats of arms on the valance would be ideal but I suppose I could used Wizardy shapes too - hats, spells etc. - and the Potter colours. I can't say I'm hopeful since the production line for this fabric
