  1. Rummage sale find

    by , 05-20-2012 at 06:19 AM
    Yesterday my daughter and I traveled to Blooming Prairie for their city wide rummage sale event - not looking for anything in particular. I found an old Corning perculator coffee pot for a dollar and just had to bring it home - deal of the day.

    I'm sitting here this morning checking out posts on QB and enjoying a cup of fresh perc'd coffee - yummo - far better than the fresh drip.

    I have begun using primarily wool batting because I like the almost trapunto look it gives when the background is densely quilted. I am wondering if a thinner thread or a thicker thread will help to emphasize that effect.

    I have seen several dessert and/or cake recipes that use it.
    I had to google it. Found out it's dulce de leche. I guess "danger pudding"
    would be an appropriate name if you did it the dangerous way.

    Personally, I enjoy condensed milk on its own...yum. LOL
    Haven't had it in years.

    For that one I cut 2" strips out of my background and focus fabrics and sewed about 24" together. I then cut these joined strips into 2" sections for the 4-patch and the rectangles that join them. It was a simple matter to sew 2 of the rectangles into the center square, sew (2) 4-patch

  9. Patriotic Quilt Blocks for Joann Employee Entering Air Force

    Most of us buy fabric at Joann - right?
    (Well, unless you don't)

    And most of us have favorite employees who are really helpful.

    Well, Ryan Rene is one of those people. She is a young lady who has taken her oath and is finishing her qualifications in broadcast journalism for a stint in the US Air Force.

    I had an idea that I thought it would be a fabulous show of support by quilters from across the country. If you are so inclined, I would like to invite ...

    On to row C! Maybe tomorrow!
