I finished my first regular flying geese quilt today. I really like it.
Now I just have to decide if I am going to gift it or sell it on my esty site.
My daughter bought me a sewing machine for Christmas so I could make my children and grandchildren quilts to remember me by when it is my time to go. I bought the material and all the supplies. I think anyway. I cut sample pieces and went to sew them together. The sewing machine would not sew. The feet would not move or the thread kept jamming. I checked the way I threaded it and redid it. I was all done the right way. I even checked the bobbin. I really want to do this for my children.
Joanieu just left from visiting. It was fun. We talked about this board and how to navigate here. ALso We discussed our plans for the AOTH project we will be starting soon. We have to figure out how to enlarge it to a 12" block. I want a bigger one. Might use the 10.5.....
Beenana called while she was here, that was a fun phone call.
Joanieu brought me a box of Stash Pumpkin spice tea. She doesn't like pumpkin.....her loss my gain.....thank you.Joanie....
Happy New Year to all Ollie's quilting angels! He is here at the moment, asleep on the floor, after wearing his mema out playing with his new little toys, including an Elmo, which is exactly what his own daddy had at this age.. To stinkin cute to remember back 26 years ago.
Ollie is doing ok, though still facing some struggles with the brain situation - but overall, he is a happy, little guy, becoming more verbal to making sounds, and so forth. He loves, loves , loves being able to

I love the pattern so much and had enough fabric left from theirs that I'm now making one for myself, just had to buy more fabric for my backing. I figure that's a pretty good deal! The pattern

With it being a Japanese 15 it is hard to say what year it was made or who actually badged it for the company but the research is ongoing and one day we will be able to figure it all out. But until then if yo need anything just PM me and I will see what I can do.
ty for your help Billy
Growing up a Norwegian Lutheran in the Midwest and in my time I was constantly reminded to never be prideful. Bring back memories? So fast forward to my late 20's when -at long last- I learned how to make quilts. I became quite good an hand piecing and quilting and then applique. And so, like many of us I began to share my love of the art with others, then began to teach, then shared my work in patterns. Fast forward to then having a book published by C&T. To me having

Strange writing that date.
I am trying to learn my way around more. I did a lot of it in the past few months. Still posting on my PDA....why not? People still posting me there. LOL. But this year is going to be a positive one, I am going to make it so.
Joanieu just got here so we are going to have a good visit. She has the day off. Yippee....
I met #1piecemaker when I bought some fabric from her sale. She's been here a while but our paths just crossed. She
