  2. dyeing for 2 days

    by , 08-09-2013 at 07:40 PM
    well finally got to do some dyeing, did a blue gradation and then on day 2 did a purple gradation, my little cottage is so cozy, so nice to have my special space to work in to do my dyeing and fabric painting. Want to dye up enough fabrics for a log cabin quilt, so will be doing many colors over the next few weeks. Yes weeks, that even 9 years ago would have taken just a very few days. Even with the washer and spin dryer it is so hard on my hands, ah old age LOL but still so much fun, I do love ...

  4. String Piecing on adding machine paper

    I like it sort of wonky rather than each piece cut exactly the same and sewn straight..but you can do either
    I start with my paper in a box or in the pic you can see I use the thread holder...anything to keep it from rolling all over.
    I cut my scraps anywhere from about 1" wide to 1 1/2"

I am too scared to take a husband and two kids to Obi's. Wish me luck since
  7. I should be sleeping...

    It is 12:47 am and here I sit. I am past tired but have once again accidentally stumbled upon this site. It appears, I created an account last year in April, but never used it. (I think it got lost).

    I am working on a Raider's quilt, and maybe this site, blog, and the friends and family I will meet here, will be just what I need to get and stay on task.

    First order of business... go to bed. (after leaving hubby a note to wake me at 4am)

Anyone else have this experience and if so , how did you correct it?
  9. Prairie Star:Free PP Templates

    by , 08-08-2013 at 01:43 PM
    As I mentioned in my last post, I have been getting quite a few requests for the paper piecing templates for the Prairie Star block. I am trying to make this blog post to include them. Hope it works. Hope you enjoy them. The PDF includes a coloring sheet and the templates (sample template and it's reverse). Together, they make 1/4 of the block, and are actual size

  10. Prairie Star Quilt Block - Free Pattern: Requests coming in

    by , 08-08-2013 at 01:24 PM
    I posted this in reply a long while ago for someone interested in making a star sampler. I have had lots of requests in the past few weeks for the paper pieced templates. I drew the block in EQ7. I will make a separate, quick blog post tonight with the pp templates if I can get it to work so those of you interested in the block can use it.
