Dear All, My name is Catherine and I found out about your website from Asia Howard a graduate student who wrote a paper entitled "Threading Connections in the Digital Age" In her paper she includes a quote about Kyra Hicks nd her book "Black Threads" stating that her record of various blogs and websites serves as a declaration to the world that the art of quilting is not to be locked into the public mind as an antiquitous craft, unprogressive and quaint. It is, in fact an art

My Brother and DSIL were married 50 years ago. We are having a family reunion tomorrow and will celebrate. My DS and I made this quilt for them. It started with a Craftsy kit, but we added other gold fabrics. Binding is bias sewn with invisible thread. It measures 62x76. 2nd quilt on my mid-arm, a Voyager 17.
Still working on this top...would like some ideas on how to quilt it once completed. Any suggestions?

My question is......should I attempt this using my walking foot or my free motion foot? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

To see her beautiful quilt colors "live" and touch the softness was a once in a life time experience. She had
Looking for a pattern for a tote that will hold a quilt. The one I want is a long bag which has 3 sets of handles and can be folded down into itself to make a regular height tote. Thanks.

I am trying to replicate a Grandmother's Garden quilt that my great-grandmother made in the 1920s or 1930s. This will be the first quilt I hand-piece (my previous quilts have been machine pieced and then quilted on a longarm) and I plan to use the English Paper Piecing method. I've done a lot of research and I think I'm ready to start basting hexies and whipstiching them together. But I'm confused about how to make the diamonds that separate the flowers.
My great grandmother's quilt is composed
