    An exercise in Tangle, Zen that is.........
    Decided to try the ZenTangle thing, so with pen in hand, I threw caution to the wind.. Its a good start I think. I layered two pieces of white broadcloth and used black thread. The back is interesting too. I think I will bind the edge and keep both sides as reference. This will be the first of several subjects.

    PS, can you tell she looks tired and somewhat sad? Yeah, I've been under the weather its funny how your work will reflect

  3. prevent fraying

    by , 04-30-2012 at 07:29 AM
    Nothing worse than having 8" blocks with 64 tiny pieces "fray" apart from handling before being sewn into a quilt top! I prevented this by cutting a 9" sq. of cardboard and using 2 - 3 binder clips to hold it in place. I can play around with arrangements without getting fabric threads all over the place and the tiniest pieces keep their 1/4" seam. This could work with any size block using poster board or cardboard.

  5. Dutchman's Puzzle Puzzled

    by , 04-30-2012 at 06:18 AM
    Hello everyone. Just found this forum. I am just learning to quilt and have been working on our class project. (class is done). I am trying to figure out why I am having such trouble with a simple Dutchnans Puzzle. When completed, it is a 6" square. The light fabric square of 2 3/8" is cut diagonally to create the smaller triangles and the dark fabric, a square of 4 1/4" cut 4 ways to create the larger triangles. The measurement of each goose is then 2" high by 3 1/2" ...

  6. charity quilt patterns

    by , 04-29-2012 at 04:58 PM
    I'm co-chair of my guild's charity committee and spend quite a bit of time putting together quilt top kits with donated fabric. I love doing this, but am getting to the point of total brain freeze when trying to come up with new, easy but fun quilt top patterns to keep the ladies interested.

    Do any of you have a favorite pattern you like to do for a quick and easy quilt top? I have EQ7, so pictures would be as welcome as links.

    Thank you in advance!

  9. San Luis Obispo, CA

    by , 04-29-2012 at 06:21 AM
    I don't usually write about being out of town ... but

    I called a quilt shop to find out what their weekend hours were because I had talked my husband into doing a mini quilt shop hop on our way north. Imagine my delight when she asked if I knew about the quilt show in San Luis Obispo the coming weekend!

    To make a long story short, I convinced my husband to backtrack about 50 miles and hang out in our camper while I did the quilt show - it was FANTASTIC! The quilts were ...

  10. On a Happier Note!

    by , 04-28-2012 at 02:36 AM
    Today, I checked my financial aid status for next school year, and I discovered that I was awarded a $4000 scholarship, my first scholarship in my college career. I am ecstatic! I exited my room and danced around the lounge singing:

    "Oh mommy, oh daddy, I am a big ol' baddy! Oh mommy, oh daddy, I am a big ol' baddy!"

    Yes, I was stared at, but that is alright. Once I was done, I disappeared back into my dorm room.

    This all means that my study abroad
