I have the opportunity to participate in a quilt shop "garage sale". Each person who participates is asked to put fabric, fat quarters, pre-cut strips, etc. in a zip-lock bag. Participant gets 50 bar code stickers and are to price their own fabric. I can submit up to 50 zip-lock bags. All of my fabric was purchased at quilt shops and I paid premium price for it. However, some of the pieces go back as far as 2002. Does anyone have guidelines they have followed for pricing? On eBay

I liked the idea (so I stole it from her), but I then

The picture of the whole quilt shows more yellow than it really is but these are cell phone pictures so please be patient with me about them. The actual colors lean more towards blue. I love the bright colors. The top is finished and the binding will be the saphire blue the separating strips are made of. I had about a fat 1/8th left over from 3 yards so

I attended two classes that were being given, went to a silent and live auction and bought several nice quilting objects, and attended

I'm very happy to introduce myself exposing my favorite quilt.
It's a baby quilt, I designed it for my violin teacher newborn daughter last year.
I wanted to quilt to have a cat and a violin because both of us like them so here it is, hoping you enjoy it as much as I loved making it.
It's hand quilted and I used a large batting because I wanted it to be puffy and cosy for the baby girl.
