"Honey, I'm just following the doctors orders. He said that if I were to do something that made me happy, I wouldn't get depressed."
As he holding the credit card statements in his fist, wavering them through the air, "But our insurance does not cover this. I can't itemize these charges on our taxes. And how much happiness did he state that you needed?"
I'm sure that is going to be my nightmare tonight. In all reality, my partner supports my passion.

I also made "coolers" blankets to walk the hot horses back to the barns and get their body temperatures
The quilt is a Strip Pieced Quilt by Dereck C. Lockwood called Links.. My question is, I do not know what type of quilting to do that will not take away from the look of the quilt. I am not a pro at quilting. Any help please.
Have been waiting less than patiently since we got to Florida for my new-to-me Janome 1600p to arrive. She came today, while I was out shopping for fusible thread. She is beautiful, and I think her name is Lydia, for my aunt Lydia who could sew like a dream. I still remember when Mom tried to make a reversible wool coat. One side was leopard--this was the 60's. She got stuck, packed it up in a box, sent it to Lydia to try to turn the lapels correctly. It came back all done, including buttons

Hi all of you great quilters that have so many designs up your sleeves. I would love to see all of the great quilting you have done in sampler quilts. I love sampler quilts so much and now would really like to see the wonderful quilting that enhances their beauty.

The link to a post that shows the pattern for the block is: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-133967-1.htm
Scroll down that thread for a picture of how I did the blocks.
I am seeing so much posted into blogs that really be wonderful for the main areas of the board- Maybe it is the uncertainty of where to post , or are they keeping the projects on the down low until they are further along ? hhhmmmmmm
Don't be bashful post all the projects where everyone will see them more readily
If unsure click on Home- then scroll down you will find the picture section , up closer to the top is the main section. If it is in the wrong area -
