very nice quilt
This is a small quilt - 26" x 26". It has a 10" center appliqued block and 42 hourglass blocks that surround it.
I quilted this on my longarm machine and learned a valuable lesson about pressing the quilt top first.
I had a lot of difficulty quilting (small meandering) in the area where the hourglass blocks joined each other. If I went over the corner where they all converged, my machine lugged down and the stitches were small. If I went around them,
While at our beach house this past weekend, I went to the local quilt shop in search of some black/white fabrics to finish a project that I wanted to do for the local library. The block I am making is from "Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, Vol. 4" magazine. I have three made for a wall hanging and need to finish the assembly and do the hand work.
It's always a nice time to visit with the owner who has become a good friend and to do some show and tell.
While I was showing
Mom recently passed away and left behind a quilting stand that my Dad made her. It is about 8 feet in length when put together. I would be willing to give it to someone if the could use it.
I have an item that I am very proud and excited to show off. I have been working on this little Lazy Susan Storage/Sewing Center for a couple of months with a group of quilters online. It all started with a request from a quilting board member to make a simple thread holder for hand quilting.
This is what we created:
A 14" Lazy Susan with 5 magnets. The magnets hold your Thread Caddy, thread spools, notion box, pin cushion and magnetic pin dish. All of these
