She is so genious! This quilt and also a few that she made for me...was made using register ( reciept) tape as foundation. She took all those tiny scraps sewed them onto rolls of reciept tape and then trimmed them to the size she wanted..isn't that a fabulous idea?
Daymon is the blonde twin and he is the one that fell off his bike and had to stay in the hospital over night recently. As you can see he is just fine again. You can see his pic in the post below this one.
the boys will be 9 this next November. I can't believe how fast time flies and how much they grow up over night!
My mom has been working on an autobiography of her life for her grands and great grands. Devon the dark haired twin asked her if she would write down

Yes, I took them except where I told to my Russian friends about different international quilting news.

On my quest to find a vintage singer that I could just set up, plug in and start sewing (no repairs), I have purchased another vintage singer machine, a 301A LBOW.
I had read up on the 301 long before I had ever seen this ad on Craigslist so once I saw the ad, I went to check it out. This machine belonged to the seller's mom (they all belonged to someone's mom at some point, right?) who had passed away over one year ago so the seller brought it to his home from Arkansas and sat it

I am new to quilting! But learning a lot from all of you, thank you. I am hearing from some local quilters that if you steam your fabric real well that you get the same effect if you were to wash it. Concerned about stinking. Have been using high quality cotton, but just recently bought some from Jo Ann Fabrics. Would love to just iron the fabric it this is true!
Colton and his big brothers Daymon and Devon came to stay with Grandma Rhonda and Papa this weekend. Cousin Rachel came too.
Colton has been bopping around here having fun! He had a good time outside yesterday too but he tried to outrun Grandma! LOL Not a pretty sight to see Grandma run!!
He's 15 mos now and climbing on and off things. Which is a stage I don't really like. We have a concrete floor and I constantly worry that they will fall and hit their heads until they
