    I used Warm & Natural batting. It's a bit heavy as it's got so many (thousands,

    by just turning it over.

    This one is "Buggy Wheels". I used white sashing and white binding on this side.

  5. Update on Ollie..

    by , 06-17-2012 at 07:06 PM
    It's been a long while since I have been here, and I apologize for that.. I did want to let all of " Ollie's angels" here who ask about him, that I am posting a few new photos for ya'll to look at. He is doing ok, some rough spots the last few months, but he is doing better, and progressing in his activities.. He is now, though he will be 2 years old in Oct, started to roll from side to side, tummy to back.. He is also using his right hand a little more, though he still can't hold anything ...

  6. The Life of a Stripper - Perkiomen Daydreams

    by , 06-17-2012 at 10:25 AM
    It seems like forever since I have posted to this blog. I have sew many projects floating around I decided it would be easier to set up several sewing machines with projects in laundry baskets near those machines with the set thread color handy. This way all I needed to decide was which machine I wanted to sit at that day.

    Right!!! this was a good idea in theory but there is still only one of me and so many hours in a day. But I am still planning the multiple sewing machine ...

  7. Another sashing question

Or should I use fusible interfacing on the sashing, or should I just use a single layer fabric for the sashing?
    I would appreciate to hear (read) your opinions.

  8. Today

    by , 06-16-2012 at 06:20 PM
    Today I went to a Quilt class. It's called Beginner Quilter Club at A Touch of Amish store. It was good, I liked it and learned a few things. The best thing about the class was it was FREE. Yep you hear me right FREE and they offer it once a month!! I can't beat that. It's like a BOM type deal. Oh you don't have to bring anything but the BOM from the previous month! And on top of that,,,, you don't make you buy their fabric either!! I am in love with it!!

    Ok,, I have ...

  10. bad binding

    by , 06-15-2012 at 12:38 PM
    This is my first time so please bare with me. I have two questions. First one is when you tie instead of quilting what is it called. Second is when I am binding I don't want to call it a quilt because I am tying it when I'm almost done the binding starts twisting how can I prevent this from happening any suggestion will help and will be appreciated. I have not tried quilting yet. But I do make the whole blanket well lap tops tie them with batting then I donate them to the cancer hospital for children. ...
