Hi all, my name is Anna and I live in Orange California, I was introduce to this wonderful world of quilting by a coworker about 3 years ago, she showed me some of the quilts she had made and I just felt in love with them, I told my husband about it and he right away looked into buying the basic tools for me to start quilting. I apologize if I didn't post this info correctly, I'm new to this I will try to show you the pics of my 2 quilts that I have made so far.
I have spent months working on my grandson's wedding quilt, now I am down to the label. I have written so many trial labels I am dizzy.. I am not sure what is best. Here is the basic info...
It is their wedding present from me.. the groom's grandmother
The date I am going to put on it is July 2013 - the month of their wedding.. the day is the 27th. Should I include that?
I NEVER use my given name.. but should I use it here as the maker? They might even be shocked
This star may turn out to be the center of a bed quilt for my youngest grandson's bed.
[QUOTE=Lori S;6164625]Just a note if a fabric says "Kona" it is Kaufman.. Kona is a registered trademark of Robert Kaufman. No other manufacture can legally use its name.

This is my first post attempt and first attempt with pics. I,ve been reading all about vintage machines and I found this WD9 wheeler & Wilson which I think is in pretty good shape. S/N 2709457. Other dates on the nameplate jul 17/89, march 25/90 and aug 2/92. I,m sure that means something to you experts.
now the cabinet is in pretty good shape except for some missing wreath work on the drawers. Any suggestions on finding repl? I thought I would clean well with Murphy,s oil
My Mom gave me her old Genie sewing machine. Does anyone know much about them.?
My daughter gave me a rolling plastic drawer bin, and a friend gave me a bunch of quilting fabric, here's the result.
Work on the dye cottage is coming along, Wed. I painted the inside, there is still a couple of places that needs sheet rock, but could not wait to get it painted. Then Thur. and Friday I installed the flooring. The walls are painted, "cotton fluff" (what else? LOL) and every thing else is white. The flooring is a white marble look "Alure" water proof, easy to clean. It sure was nice to have air in there when it was so hot out, it got down right chilly inside, but I was working
I just bought the book the Farmers Wife Quilt. I am wanting to paper piece these blocks and am trying to find the patterns I am willing to buy them if someone would be willing to share them with me. Thanks for anyone's help with this.
