  3. Old Style Quilting

    by , 06-21-2012 at 09:27 AM
    Hi to all! I am new at this and am looking for answers to something. My grandma started a quilt but she did it with newspapers on the back. Like I said, a newbie here but needed to know how to go about continuing her quilt with the newspapers. You see, she died before I was born and I would like to finish her blanket. It's special to me. Anyway, do I leave the newspapers on or exactly what do I need to do? Thank you for all of you that offer help on this.

  4. An Amish Rainbow to celebrate Summer

    Happy summer to all. Here in Maine we are starting out with a couple days in the 90's - and the high was only 63 yesterday!

  6. declared war on my scrap bag: resulting reversible QAYG quilt

    I used Warm & Natural batting. It's a bit heavy as it's got so many (thousands,
    it seemed!) seam allowances enclosed so it's nice to be able to "change" the quilt
    by just turning it over.



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

  7. A good day of quilting with friends

    by , 06-20-2012 at 11:01 PM
    I spent six hours at my local quilt shop quilting with friends. It has been a few weeks since I had been and it was good to catch up with everyone.

    I had a stack of flannel sample squares that were given to me to make some charity quilts with. I have made one, and was able to decide on and cut out two more. There was enough that one of my friends purchased the rest of it to make one for herself. I now have money to give to the group to spend on supplies for more quilts!

  8. need packing advice

    by , 06-20-2012 at 12:56 PM (New Moda BOM "Spring Bouquet")
    We are celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary with a first trip to Ireland for 2 weeks. We have decided to "travel light" and take only one carry-on each. I have always overpacked for trips in the past, and have sworn to learn how to get by with less. Can anyone help me with suggestions? Has it worked for you or is it worth it to lug a bigger suitcase? We are renting a car and will be in and out of many hotels, so wanted to make it easy on ourselves. Thanks in advance!
