What have I gotten myself into?
Chele, who runs the doll quilt swap announced that she is ready to "retire" as hostess. Since this is one swap that I really love, I didn't want to see it go.
Starting in March, I will be the new hostess.
I am looking for a contemporary pieced quilt of nesting hens. I saw it on Ebay but on auction and it disappeared too fast for me. It was titled "Settin Pretty" Farm Quilt and was a wall hanging.
Ladies I need an answer. I am working on my first quilt top. I used shirts and left pockets on some squares. Do I need to sew these closed before I send this top to be finished?
Thinking of doing the Hunter's Star using camos and hunter's orange. I have been researching patterns, etc. I am knew to Quilt Pro 5 so I have a lot to learn, but haven't seen that block in there as of yet. I may have to figure a way to draw it or what have you in the program. Are there any other patterns that might be recommended for my color scheme? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Also, if any has any pics of camo quilts, I would love to see, as well.

Well, as most know the CW is what my concentration has been on. A friend of mine worked on my machine for me over the weekend and all was well for a couple of days. I am back to the same disagreement with it so put it back up. I don't know when I'm going to realize that I am not meant to operate machinery, lol. I did manage to make it through putting 16 (4.5" squares) together before it got mad at me again. Therefore, back to all by hand once again. I am ok with this, I just think I

Two blogs....do I have the strength???? lol Will give it a go and see how it works.

Finished my 'floating lanterns' mini top last night. It was sort of a bear to square up. Had to add borders to two sides to get the right size, but it worked, and the black fabric hides the seam lines. Then, I added a yellow flange and put the black binding on the front. Now, I just need to sew the binding from the back and add a label, and my Feb. DQ is ready early.
