I will be traveling to southern New Jersey and then on to Lancaster County, PA in late June. If you live in or near these areas do you have a favorite quilt or fabric shop? I really need your advice as I have never been to either of these areas and have no idea where to start. Also, any must see places? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.....Judi from Denver.

I want to try this but that makes me a little nervous, also it seems like the seams might be pretty bulky. I want to try quilt as you go but I don't want to hand stitch the back or add sashing so this seemed like a good alternative. Thanks!

Hello again from S. Jersey This is new to me. I have been reading the quilting board for a little while and this is my first entry. I have been quilting for about 5 years and my husband has made a wonderful quilting area for me and now I have 4 friends who come to quilt every Thursday. We donate almost every quilt that we make and what a blessing we get. Signing off for now from S. Jersey.
I'm looking for this donkey/mule fabric or any other donkey/mule fabric that is slightly different. I want to start on a quilt for myself and am trying to track down all donkey fabrics.

I have misplaced the talented quilter's name on the post, can someone please tell me the name of the pattern and if I can purchase one, I cannot figure out how it comes together, thank you

Then they come out too large, all have to be trimmed down. Isn't that a lot of extra work? I have used the Angler 2 in the past, that fits on the bed of my machine, and had fairly good luck but just wondering about trying one of these other methods. What is the method you use or what works best for you. Just curious.

OOOHH Can you share the store?? We go to Lafayette every few weeks and I want these clocks!!
Sorry this reply is so late. I'm not positive, but think the store's name was Gretel's. It was a home decor type of store in West Lafayette. Hope this helps!
