  3. Help!!!

    by , 08-17-2013 at 11:44 AM
    I need help designing a twin size quilt for my 3 year old Grandson. The carpenters star piece is 38" x 38", he has an extra long twin bed. I have agonizing over this for 3 months, I don't know what to do. have 5 yards of the polka dot and 4 1/2 yards of the cars fabric. I feel the cars fabric is too busy to put on the star side of the quilt. I don't think another quilt design would work to go around the star.

  4. Frog Baby Quilt

    by , 08-17-2013 at 07:43 AM
    I had 9 different 4 inch frog squares and finally decided to make a baby quilt with them, after finding a great sale on fat quarters. It's not the usual pink and soft fabric for a baby girl but I figure babies love bright colors.

  6. Starburst quilt

    by , 08-16-2013 at 08:20 PM
    I am looking for a quilt pattern for a starburst quilt similar to the pattern the ladies made in the 20's and 30's. I have a pattern for a Lone
    Star quilt but it has just the star with all 4 corners left blank. I want the entire bed sized quilt to be filled in with various colored circles or partial circles toward the edges of the quilt. Can anyone help me with finding a pattern?

    Seam-Fix seam ripper

    and then of course the essential rotary cutter and mat, but that goes without saying

  8. Do you ever wonder why...?

    by , 08-15-2013 at 06:33 PM
    Hello fellow quilters,

    Let me say how much I am enjoying this board!!!

    While this post has nothing to do with quilting, tonight, I found my life passing before my very eyes. I work 35 miles one way from my house so i am on the road a lot. Part of my job requires me to drive distances away from my home office. While I have experienced some close calls in the past, nothing could have prepared me for what happened tonight.

    I'm minding my own business driving ...

    I just need to find the perfect border fabric now...I had a deadline to get this far as this Sunday...whew...made it. We're heading west to Alaska on a road trip Monday morning and I'm taking this with me...it'll be my excuse to stop at "several" quilt shops along the way. (Palmer, Anchorage, Fairbanks)

    The pattern is called Counterpoint and it's by Mountain Peek Creations.

I then cut out all my pieces and iron them on to the wrong side of my fabric ( I use batiks so there is not really a wrong side LOL). I then cut out my pieces leaving around 1/4" all round (usually a little smaller), then using a small paint
