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

Did quite a bit of thinking on how I wanted my cutting table to be and this is what I came up with. It was made similar to my kitchen island so far as the top, and I had 12 drawers of various depths in it. The top three are deep enough for the little items like rotary cutters and thread.

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

Thanks so much Bookworm!

It's been a long while since I have been here, and I apologize for that.. I did want to let all of " Ollie's angels" here who ask about him, that I am posting a few new photos for ya'll to look at.

He is now, though he will be 2 years old in Oct, started to roll from side to side, tummy to back.. He is also using his right hand a little more, though he still can't hold anything

It seems like forever since I have posted to this blog. I have sew many projects floating around I decided it would be easier to set up several sewing machines with projects in laundry baskets near those machines with the set thread color handy. This way all I needed to decide was which machine I wanted to sit at that day.
Right!!! this was a good idea in theory but there is still only one of me and so many hours in a day. But I am still planning the multiple sewing machine
