  2. Sad Monday

    by , 11-07-2011 at 08:24 AM (annthreecats ~~~my blissful crafting journey~~~)
    I received word yesterday that my ex-MIL passed away. She passed away on my daughter's birthday which is really sad. DD is okay with it. She was with her Grandmother at the end and so glad she got the chance to nurse her and spend quality time with her the last two weeks. DD had her for 35 years so she has lots of great memories.

    I played in my sewing room yesterday morning trying to banish the sadness after hearing about the deal of ex-MIL. I did some sewing and was able to ...

    Others referenced these related tutorials:

    This one is a variation that will make it look more like a double-wedding ring:

    And it appears the original (or near-original)

Her original pattern was for 3” log cabin blocks with 1/2” logs, very small felt beak and comb and a seed bead for the eyes. Cute, but not nearly the pizazz I like

  8. Sunday Thoughts

    by , 11-06-2011 at 08:47 PM (Everyone Deserves a Quilt)
    The past two weeks have been very hectic! The Bras for a Cause/Girls' Night Out took a lot of time and energy but since the event was Wednesday (and it was wonderful), things are slowing down a bit. I have just a couple of things to finish up for that (thank you notes, final delivery of some silent auction items, etc.) and then I hope to get back to quilting.

    I've been reading a few of the threads here about the new format and quite honestly, I haven't taken much time to really check ...

  10. Choosing a Quilt Binding

    by , 11-06-2011 at 04:49 PM
    Choosing a quilt binding for your baby quilt should be done once the quilt is assembled. It is difficult to make a decision on what type of fabric should be used for the binding and how it will look on the quilt.

    Place your finished quilt top on either your design wall or lay it out on a bed or clean floor space. Now, you will be able to place potential binding fabrics alongside of the quilt top. Step back. Exchange fabrics and repeat.
