My first OBW went un-quilted. Inexperienced as i am, I chose to make it with a lovely Ralph Lauren Lakota Paisley, in a suede like fabric, and although it turned out beautiful, the thought of trying to quilt through all that thickness

    I had planned to finish up a quilt on the long arm today and maybe even start the cutting for a quilt I'm making for charity--but Mother Nature changed those plans! I walked out for the mail since it was a balmy upper 40's after an ice/snow storm a week ago and when I got close to the house I hit the drive way--literally!

    It is quick, no marking, little waste and you can make whatever unfinished size of HST you want-need.

    Please ask questions if my directions are not clear.

    have fun! Now on to my project!

    This quilt was my grandmothers not sure of its history but I have always liked it. It has a couple places that need repair but still is a nice quilt.

    We had the kids and g-boys over last night for Christmas big meal and presents--wish we didn't have to share with in-laws.
    And today "read" the paper(with eyes closed) in my jammies until noon! Had a glorious Christmas with family and hope all of you did,too. I'm feeling bad for those families that have lost electricity due to ice in Michigan and other places, know how that is, so really hope that power restored quickly and all of you stay safe.

One became a pillow, another a large trivet with Insulbrite and batting and the small one, my first, is just a little mug rug.
