  2. More Pictures of my Little Ones

    Well we have now put 600 miles on our new van so I guess I am getting used to it! LOL It has a running board that hits my shin every time I get in or out of it. It is so annoying! The last van I kept hitting my head on the door frame and this one gets my leg! If I remember to step over getting in I do ok and I have figured out if I scoot forward and put my rt foot on the running board I can get over the running board without hitting my leg but I forget more often than not! Grrrr

  4. Transporting to Classes

    by , 03-05-2012 at 03:30 PM
    I am new to quilting and am taking quite a few classes at the local quilt shop. I have a rolling bag for my machine, but it does not hold all of the various supplies.

    I'm finding carrying a sewing box too bulky and having to make multiple trips to the car. Any suggestions for better class organization?

  5. todays topic on sewing space

    by , 03-05-2012 at 02:47 PM
    I'm not sure where to put this but I thought todays information was very good, concise and considering all the different types of sewing areas. I often want to say "way to go" to whoever does these daily articles but don't see how.

    Anyway, I think this is a great board
  6. hand quilting

    by , 03-05-2012 at 02:27 PM
    I started this quilte using Virginia Bonesteel' lap quilting technique. Actually this is not spelled correctly. I broke my wrist over a year ago and I don't think I will be able to finish handquilting it. Would it be worth anything if I did it on the machine. It really is a beautiful quilt. Every square is a different design although all designs are from those long ago, ex. windows, etc. Susan
  7. Oh boy, am I disappointed...

    On the main board, I started a thread about needles and thimbles. I wanted to ask advice about what other quilters are using. I received a wonderful array of informative posts.

    I had been having a problem with large eye needles. The consensus does not seem to favor them. So, in my quest to secure some good needles, I ordered some #10 Clover quilting needles. During my first endeavor, with three stitches on the needle, it broke in half. Fortunately I found the pointed end, removed the ...

  10. And more snow! And some quilting!

    by , 03-04-2012 at 08:08 PM (LeslieFrost -- life in the woods of NW Wisconsin)
    Well, snow every day since Wednesday! Not too much today, just a heavy dusting, but dear hubby did do some scraping with his ATV and plow blade (maybe just because he likes to do that?).

    I finished two small quilts this weekend. One is 17" square and will go to my March DQ Swap partner, so I can't show it to you, but I can show the AAQI little quilt I made!
