The centre block is The Declaration of Arbroath one of the most

  5. Friends with no comment or just blind to creativity?

I learned not to expect any comments on my hobbies such as knitting or sewing/quilting even if I point it out.

  9. Pillow runner instead of shams

    by , 02-26-2015 at 05:48 AM
    I have found that I like to use what I would call a pillow runner instead of making shams or making the quilt big enough to cover the pillows. Similar to a bed runner that you see in the end hotels only smaller. For a queen size bed I make it about 24 x 66. Using this is much easier when making the bed too.
