Hey all, I've been looking left and right on the Quilter's Board resources, blogs, forums, etc. and don't seem to find a place where we can all go and look up a name of a quilt with photo and hopefully each member describing their technique. I would really like to start something like this. I've seen many posts of members asking for certain names, patterns, etc. If any of you know such "Quiltionary" exists here, please let me know. If not, let's get one started!

I am new to blogging and am desperate. I have just finished a Tennessee Waltz Quilt and have a friend who wants a quilt done in the Chevron Pattern. I know it is relatively simple, but I cannot find a pattern anywhere. Can anyone out there help me?
I have attached a picture of the Tennessee Waltz Quilt before getting it quilted.

The next one, St. Patty's wall hanging is all made on the serger except for the binding.
In one of my quilt groups we all made a Ricky Timms Convergence quilt and

I am making it for my mom she is 83 yrs. young. I take care of her 24 seven and I love it. We get our hair done together and we go shopping together. She is a real blessing to me. I am married I've been married for 17 years and if I had it to do over again I would stay single

My step-daughter suffered a severe stroke 18 months ago. She is a quilter and would like to try quilting again. However, she only has the use of one hand. Any ideas?
