  1. Mixing our Hobby with a Profession

    by , 12-31-2011 at 11:28 AM
    How many of us blend our talents between our favorite hobby and an occupation? I have been fortunate for many years in mixing both worlds together. I learned to quilt in a place and time where tradition ruled us all. I dove into hand applique and hand quilting and loved hand piecing with a passion [still do]. I was a baby quilter in the midst of some very talented folks who went on to become leaders in the industry teaching, designing fabrics and writing books and running major seminars. So, I ...

  3. Yay! A Quilting board!

    I was very excited to find a quilting board/blog site. I had been posting on blogspot, but with very limited quilters finding my posts. I love hearing what others think of my projects, and look for advice on some. I come from a long line of quilters, but have learned most of what I know on my own. This is one of the 3 projects I have going right now. I have it on my frame to tie, I started a flying geese baby top, and have another baby quilt waiting to get the edges finished. Hopefully, I can ...

  4. Flannel Material

    by , 12-31-2011 at 07:23 AM
    I got 12 yards of flannel for Christmas. 4 yards each of white, lite and med blue. I have never made a flannel quilt and was wondering if any of you have and what are your thoughts on such a quilt. I haven't been making quilts for long so am questioning what I should do.

  9. Help....

    by , 12-30-2011 at 03:25 PM
    I am new to quilting and I am making a quilt out of t-shirts. I have attached interfacing to the t-shirts but after cutting one shirt my rotary cutter won't cut anymore. It is fresh out of the box and only used on the first shirt. What am I doing wrong that it won't cut anymore?
