Hello fellow quilters. I am new to this site.
My maternal grandmother taught me to quilt. She was an award winning quilter. Not a summer fair went by without one of her quilts taking a ribbon!
I like to make serviceable quilts. String quilts are my absolute favorite because they make up fast, are very durable and I can use bits and pieces.
Here is a quilt top I've just finished. If The Man of the house can get the sewing machine FIXED (grrrr) I'll get it completely finished this

First blog post. Hmm....
I will begin with... WTH was I thinking when I took on this rag quilt project?! One snafu after another, and wow.... Hoping to finish it in the next day or so (even though the "pattern" claimed I could make it in ONE day!)
As chilly as it is today, though, Im wishing it was already done!!!
I feel like the Little Engine that Could!

I found out yesterday that a friend of mine willneed to have treatments for cancer staring Monday. Dr told her that she need to shave her hair off. She has been fitted for a wig for her head, however, they told her that she should not wear the wig around open flames and while she is cooking at the stove. They don't have the $$ for a real hair wig so she has the one that isn't. I talked with her about head wraps and she said that she would like to try one. So I have been looking for a free pattern
I bought a panel.Very beautiful. Has a scenery of closeups and far off picture. My problem...I want to turn it into an attic window picture. How can I practice without cutting my panel?This is my first attempt and I am afraid I may ruin it Where do I begin?....
Thanks from Teresa in North Carolina
I am really new with quilting though I have made several - mostly by putting material together and calling it a quilt! However, I am trying to quilt using a few rules and patterns and recently decided I needed to add another new step to finish my quilts with a Longarm. SO - purchased a Tin Lizzie Ansley and don't know if I put the leaders on correctly. I am getting ready to install a new product called Red Snappers -an acquaintance who went to Pudacah Quilt Show thought I had to have....but want
