I think: suitable for all types of batting. Without batting can you make, if the fabric is strong.
This was a week I had been dreading since early November when my sister-in-law found out that the little girl growing inside her belly was not going to live long after birth. Monday she sent a message that she was going to be induced, and that there would be a service to follow. Thursday morning, my niece passed. No matter how much you think you can prepare, it's not enough. To cope, the sewing machine has been running a lot. I got a request on my etsy shop for a twin sized quilt for the lady's
I spent one entire week collecting my scraps, cutting them into squares, strips and sorting them by color. All the time deciding I would sell them on this board. These are not your momas scraps. They are an assortment of tones, textures, brights & prints all QSQ, even down to the crumbs. I don't through away anything that can possibly be used. Sevalages galore, great stuff.........................Why can I pass them on????????????????????????????
I started preparing the next 3 blocks (homework): B13, C1 and C13.
Are these pieces getting smaller or is it just me?!?
Hi there...I am new to this blog and to quilting and need some advice. Has anyone ever done the block kits you can find at the store (JoAnns) where they showcase a different block each month? Is it expensive in the end? Is it worth it?

(4) Click on the block. Most often, I choose the original DJ block, not one of the variations.

When I jump into a project, I end up diving in with my head and both feet all at once. I never seem to be able to do anything small, lol. With this being said, I find myself procrastinating due to the time consumption and slow progress by hand. A friend of mine was working on the same type of quilt as I and the same goal dimensions. We sorta pushed each other forward. We would text each other as we had finished certain # of blocks, etc. It seems as if she has packed hers away or lost interest.

A few weeks ago I was reading one of the stories on the board. I always look to see where people are from, and lo and behold there was a quilter in my neck of the woods. We only live about 30 minutes away from each other. We decided to meet after the holidays and on this past Wed we finally got together. What a fun day we had. Her sewing room is to die for, I told her she needs to post it. Last Tuesday I answered an add on Craigslist about a sewing machine, so I go to see the machine. It'a a babylock
Hi I am new to this Blog. I was wondering if you can sell items? I am getting rid of stuff I hardly or never used.
