  1. Quilting Looms for Machine Quilting

    by , 05-14-2013 at 11:37 AM
    Yesterday I read where there are looms you can purchase that your sewing machine is able to ride down tracks in order to quilt your piece. Does anyone have any experience with any of these? Would you recommend the one you have? Thanks!
  2. Any pointers on how to sew wavy line quilts?

    by , 05-14-2013 at 10:06 AM
    I am thinking of using some blues and aquas in lines across the across, I think wavy lines would be great, don't know how to cut or sew them, would love to hear your answers and comments.

    Then two baby quilts, the blue I just did simple wavy line quilting, the other is hand quilted SITD, they just need binding.
    Next is a preview of a WIP for #8 - all the blocks are made, just have to finish putting them together.

  6. 12" Kitty in the Window Block - made with a jelly roll!

    If anyone would like to know how to construct this and can't do it quickly from the link, please feel free to PM me! I just made the block on my 30 min lunch break + 15 min break as I worked on puzzling it out. It was friendly to little slips and mistakes, too.

    Here is a memory quilt I made from a friends clothing for her grandchildren. What a joy this brought me to make them for her twin grandchildren. She was diagnosed with cancer and lost her battle in two months

  9. New quilts

    by , 05-10-2013 at 06:17 PM
    Belong to the Bee Attitude Quilters Ministry and have been busy making quilts for the needy and those in our church hurting or with health concerns, and some special times. It is fun and gives me another reason to quilt. Need to get more cotton fabric donated to our group. There are 5 to 8 of us most of the time.
