Goodness, I have not posted on here for quite some time. I am still not caught up with UFOs and I seem to create more as I go. I do realize I need to get some of my PIGs completed as well. A friend has put me on a kit/UFO diet for the rest of 2015 and 2016. I need to complete what I have before buying anymore fabric and before starting any new projects. Of course I have figured out a way to manipulate this system, silly me. I have already started some projects and have all the supplies to
I made two small quilts for my grandchildren and need to get them quilted. Looking for recommended quilters in the Tulsa or surrounding areas.
Hi. Just joined quilting board and really don't know what I'm doing! Just going for it!
I recently bought old copies of Irish Quilting. There are a few projects I'd love to make BUT a few issues are missing - could anyone help?
I need issues 16 & 17 from volume 3 to make the "Quilting is ...." Quilt. I also need issue 2 from volume 2 to make "The Country Club" quilt.
Can anyone help? Would be so grateful.
