I have no idea the name of the block. I just referred to it as the 'flower quilt'. That's what I put on the label. I failed to get a pic of it

  4. Scrappy Quilts

    by , 04-07-2012 at 08:22 AM
    Scrappy quilts are so much fun to make and use. There are usually a lot of memories in them. A lady who used to do a lot of my longarming (is that even a word) said she loved doing the scrappy quilts when they That is what scrappy quilts are to me - MEMORIES!

    With that being said, I am working on a "Rick Rack Nines" quilt that has been in the making for just over a year now. It will measure 106 x 106 when finished. I found the pattern in a book called "Adventure ...

  5. My Sampler Quilt

    by , 04-06-2012 at 05:10 PM
    I tried to post pics on the message board, but the pics were just too small, so I'll try them here.

    We had a sampler quilt class, and this is my version of the quilt. I had some Moda fabric that I'd had for a while, and I thought this would be the perfect project for them. Really pretty purples, greens, pinks, and yellow.

    I had Kevin quilt as he wanted, so each block has different quilting motifs in them. He did cross hatching, freehand vines and feathers, ruler work, ...

  10. Finishing 301A cabinet

    by , 04-06-2012 at 08:43 AM
    After several days, I have finally finished the cabinet for my 301A. When I picked it up from the seller, most of the finished and varnish had peeled away after being stored in the garage for over 1 year. I scraped the peeling varnish off and used a vintage furniture restorer to remove the rest. I sanded the cabinet, remeoved the cobwebs and applied a golden pecan stain to it. I like the final result but that one drawer (the lighter one) needs some more work. I worked to remove the prior finished ...
