Had a great road trip today with two other quilters. We went to Eau Claire to visit Mill Ends. I found the notions I'd been looking for and a little bit of fabric, but I was outclassed by many times by my friends! They spent lots more than I did -- makes me feel thrifty by comparison. We had a good time, just talking and riding and getting to know each other better.
Just sittin' with my hubby tonight,

Yes, it is made with satin. I used a batting.
What do you think? Does this quilt need a border or not. Does it have so much going on the inside that a border would take away from it?

Yesterday, while Carol and I were working on our quilts, she showed me a Cathedrial Window quilt she had started. I have always loved those quilts, but always figured they were much too difficult for my level of quilting. Then, she showed me how they are done... and I was hooked! We went right away to town (30 minutes away), in the drifting snow, and I got the stuff for my quilt. I will post pics as soon as I can. I can't wait for this one to be finished!! I already have my colors picked out
I found a Universal deluxe precision sewing machine. It is aquamarine in color and in a carrying case. I was wondering if anyone knew the value of this machine.
A friend made a quilt block for me but isn't sure of the name. She thought it was Farmer's Wife, but when I googled that image I only came up with the Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt. However, block #16 is the one she made for me. Can you identify it for me?
We got married 37 years ago today on January 19 1975.
We met in Sept and moved in together in Nov and got engaged on Dec 13 (Friday the 13th) and got married on Jan 19 my mom's birthday.
We gave my mom one month to put together a formal wedding. My dress was made by a neighbor as her gift. The cake was made by my aunt as her gift. My mom had dresses made for my 3 bridesmaids and my MIL and the flower girl my cousin.
LOL My flower girl and the ring bearer are
