He had surgery to remove the tumor, which was very risky but he pulled through. He came home from the hospital a few days ago, or I should say they returned to the Ronald McDonald House for his recovery. As of this evening, he was readmitted

  6. Quiltionary ~ name of quilt, pattern, photo, technique

    by , 04-18-2012 at 05:53 PM
    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!

Is there a tutorial for this, or do I need a more experienced person to work on it? Any help would be deeply appreciated!

    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.
