  3. Another black and white mini!

    This is the second one I've done from this pattern. This one is smaller, and crisper, I think. I machine quilted it. Just SITD in the center, and two lines of quilting in the border. This one is going to AAQI, probably in March.

  5. Our New Van

    by , 02-22-2012 at 02:50 PM (Rhonda's Retreat)
    It has taken me some time to come to terms with this new van. I went into the dealership just to look and possibly to trade our 2001 town and country in on a 2006 van. But we walked out with a brand new 2012 Dodge Caravan. I was just not ready for that I guess! LOL I have had to make do all my life and as my dad and my DH were mechanics driving mechanic's specials was the type of cars or vans we drove.

    A little over 2 yrs ago we got our first ever car payment. At least first one in ...

    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.)
  7. Pass the block order

    by , 02-22-2012 at 01:09 PM
    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.
    Any ...

    so i had this brilliant idea to work on two postage stamp quilts (psq) simutaneously. seriously??? well i am and it is a definate labor of love cutting and sewing thousands of 1.5" squares. my interest in doing these quilts started with participating in several 1.5" square board swaps. i had no idea what i was gonna do with all these squares initially but after discussions with others on the board, i knew i was gonna tackle a psq. then i followed crafty1's record progress on her psq and ...

  10. 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 ...
