I thought that would help me put the colors together. is the pattern and I picked out a tonga treat. Someone please tell me if you think this

  4. Procrastination

    by , 07-09-2012 at 08:17 PM
    OK, I admit it! I am sitting here on this website instead of doing a quilt on my longarm. It is all loaded and ready to go, I just don't know what to do with it. It has a large (5" border, an inner border of triangles, another inner border of four patches and the center of the quilt is applique.

    I know what I want to do with the applique. I am going to stitch around each piece, then do some small meandering in the area around them.

    It's all the outer borders ...

  6. Riverside CA

    This is my first post but I've been lurking for several months and have got to say that you are all amazing and so very friendly. I look forward to seeing what's happening every day and along the way I've learned so much. Thank you.

    Wondering if anyone can tell me if there are any quilt shops in Riverside, CA? I'll be out that way early August. I've found over time that the Internet is sometimes out of date and visiting LQS while traveling is unproductive without further research. Case ...
  7. Beware of Lightening

    by , 07-09-2012 at 07:29 AM
    I've loved reading posts on this board for years now but have never posted one myself. However, I just had to share my woes with you all to hopefully save you the same problem in the future. Had my Pfaff sewing machine and Pfaff Fabric mover plugged into a surge protector and had the current turned off with the switch, or so I thought!!!!! Even though the swich was turned off when our house was hit with lightening last week the surge of power blew out the brains in my sewing machine AND the fabric ...

First off the letters ended up to big so I cut it down to "Places to go" then it was impossible to applique the letters to just the fabric so I went ahead and ironed both inside and outside fabrics to the peltex so it was stabilized.
  9. Letters from WWII

    by , 07-09-2012 at 04:50 AM
    After my mom passed away three years ago, I found letters that my dad sent her when he was in WWII. I would like to do/make something special with them. Since my mom loved to sew, and I have sewn for many years (but am new to quilting) I would love any suggestions. I thought of transferring some of the letters onto fabric paper, but would the wording come out backwards? Don't necessarily want to make a big quilt. Any ideas? My creative mind is drawing a blank. Thanks!

Not pleased with the uneven"rays" of E5 but will accept it as it lines up with my pattern. *sigh*
