I would like to post a picture of my first quilt that I made. I don't know where I am suppose to post it to. I would like it to show up in pictures on the resources. Can anyone help me?
I am new to quilting so I have a couple of questions about somethins I read in the resources. What is an awl, and how do you use it? What is EQ printing? Is it done with a machine, if so what kind? Is special material used? Thanks

I started this quilt in a Bonnie Hunter class this past June, she taught a one day workshop on making scrap quilts. Now I'll never be able to toss another scrap. This is also my first embroideried quilt!

yesterday i saw a thread for "101 patchwork designs" that directed us to the revival of ruby short mc kim's quilt designs. something rang a bell! this summer on a visit to texas, my dear friend anne gave me a quilt her mother had made as a young girl it is "the colonial life" quilt designed by ruby short mc kim! i will post pictures as soon as i can! how often do you see your actual quilt , dating back to the 1930's? i will tell anne, but i really hope she doesn't want it back!

My mother, who I've not spoken with in almost twenty years due to an extremely abusive childhood, died Saturday morning. Even when she knew she was dying, she chose not to attempt to make things right, which was pretty hurtful. Neither my sister or brother let me know (we've had a distant relationship as I'm the one who needed 'help', who wouldn't come back
We are multifunctional people but have a need to be neat and tidy. This has become a problem. I'm not sure where to even begin to explain the situation. Problem: my husband and I do not like living in separate parts of the house. He is a Xbox360 gamer/computer geek and I am a crafter/quilter. Needless to say, we both need space but without the clutter. He currently has 2 large monitors and getting a third. For me, if I work on anything, it's drag it all out, work a few minutes, put it all

Fix one that has all colors. I also used a very old piece of print that had boy and girls toys in it as the repeat fabric. Hope you like.

So I've never purchased fabric from anywhere but quilt shops. But I see that a lot of you purchase fabric at the discount stores.
Have you ever noticed a difference between quilt store
