    these are pictures of Mariners Compass I did last fall. The Pictures were taken before quilting. the blocks were quilted in the ditch and yellow circle in middle of compass had rising sun quilted in it. same design on background blocks. That's my Poo-Chie doing her job as quality control. If not approved by her or Truffles, it may not be worth having spent the time quilting. ( They havent vetoed any yet.)
  2. Pass the block order

    Ok so if you want to do just one small I will assign you to the same amount of people doing yours. Like if 6 people work on yours you only work on 6 people's.
    Dotty made a good suggestion I will pm each person there order of people please print it out and put it in with the top.
    also I want all to feel comfortable or enjoy the theme of the top so I would like to know if it's a specific theme like holidays, kids,fairy's, floral,etc. this way I can match you with your choice.

  5. Video Moves For Applique!

    by , 02-21-2012 at 06:39 AM
    May seem small to others, but when it takes 15 mins to load a 1 min video, it gets very frustrating after a while! Being I am a visual learner, I use YouTube for my "how to's." We got faster internet installed yesterday, so now it just PLAYS when I click… YEAH!

    With this being said, I have been looking at how to hand appliqué. I see various techniques so I am trying to determine which will work best for me. I see some use freezer paper, some use fusible web, some use ...

  8. Puzzles and Quilts

    by , 02-19-2012 at 10:47 AM
    In many ways, quilts are like puzzles...

    Discernment is like a puzzle. There are some pieces with straight edges that define the boundary of the process. There are some pieces that are immediately recognizable by their color, shape, or design. Those pieces begin to form the vision of the bigger picture. Then, there are the mystery pieces that take time and contemplation and, perhaps, invite the thoughts and expertise of others who are interested in your journey. Yet the Creator of ...

  10. Not about quilting, but about exciting news!

    by , 02-18-2012 at 07:37 PM (LeslieFrost -- life in the woods of NW Wisconsin)
    Have had a long but exciting couple of days in Minneapolis. One of the things I do when I'm not sewing is act as a parliamentarian for Lutheran congregations and groups.

    Yesterday and today I was the parliamentarian for the Minneapolis Area Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Those 700+ lay people and clergy did several things, but one thing they did was very exciting, to me.

    For the first time, ever, they elected a woman as their new Bishop!
