I am wondering if anyone knows if there is a name for this pattern. If there is not, I'd like to call it North Dakota garden.

Does anyone have a formula for charging someone to put on a binding for their quilt? It is a curved, scalloped edge!
I have four old quilts that were my grandmothers. They have to be about 100 yrs old. I would like to know for sure. There are in ok shape, one even has a swastic on it in pink not sure why but would like to find out dates. Thanks for any help
Hi I am new to quilting and am feeling a little discouraged. I am wondering if I started learning this new hobby to late in life. I took care of my mother for 12 years, she was unable to walk or care for herself. She passed away on my birthday July 23, 2011. After she passed I have just felt so disconnected to anything, so I started taking a quilting class in Sept. of 2011. I will be 60 this July 23 and I'm just unsure about what I should do, I enjoy quilting but is this a hobby that should be started
My blog is mainly my quilts here at the cottage. I am self taught, use the web for ideas and just have at it. Not fancy stuff too much but lots of fun doing my quilts.
Lots of stuff on this Board, am glad I found it.

Go to www.quilters.net and scroll down to KIMONO. It cost $10.00 ordered from Australia. I actually got my contact from the POPULAR PATCHWORK QUILTING magazine online through their forum. The designer is Brenda Dean. The Kimono is actually only about 2 by 3 inches. I increased the pattern measurements to 165% which was a 6 1/2 by 22 inche piece of material. Here is an orignal one I did first for my granddaughter.

I feel much better now and really like how the room now looks.
