    What do quilters and race car drivers have in commom?

    they both have to slow down around the corners!

    my boyfriend races so this joke just kinda came to me. hope you chuckled. I just finished this baby quilt this past weekend. I have 3 more baby quilts to make before June 1st. time to do some fabric shopping. yeah!!!!

    here's a shortcut tip: for baby quilts try using fleece for the backing and it serves as the batting too. you'll never have to worry about bearding. and it's oh, so soft!

    Ohio needs some warm weather for a change. Snow has been on the ground here since before Christmas!

    Nice job. :thumbup:

    And only the losing racers slow down for the corners. The winners keep the speed up. :lol:

    Hello to everyone, just joined in Feb., from MN. Have been reading the QMB-everyone seams so helpful and friendly--like one big happy family. I LOVE to quilt I am a third generation of quilting. I like to design my own patterns. I have just compleated the top of a PUFF QUILT, does anyone have any ideas how to attach the back? Will take any suggestions. MN QUILT LADY signing off for now.

    Yes, I did it all by hand. Each block took about 10 hours. Thanks to all for such kind comments.

    THANK YOU SO MUCH, MY STEP-MOTHER INTODUCED ME TO THIS PATTERN. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW OTHER PATTERNS AS I LOVE TO DO HAND WORK. IT IS SO THERAPUETIC. I WENT TO JOANNS TONIGHT AND BOUGHT ENOUGH FABRIC TO MAKE 3 LITTLE BABY GIRL QUILTS BY JUNE 1ST. IT WILL BE A SCRAPPY LOG CABBIN OF PINK AND GREEN. I GOT ALL THE STRIPS CUT TONIGHT OF 1 & 3/4 IN STRIPS SO THAT I CAN START SEWING BLOCKS TOGETHER TOMORROW. WILL ADD PICS AS SOON AS I HAVE ENOUGH TOGETHER. SEND ME OTHE CHICKEN SCRATCH PATTERNS IF IT IS HANDY FOR YOU TO DO SO. THANKS FOR COMMENTING. i'M LOVING THIS SITE. NO ONE ON FACEBOOK HAS COMMENTED AT ALL. I WAS VERY SURPRISED.

    Go to Pegasus Originals, Inc. web site.

    There are three books with patterns which are not expensive at all. They are Chicken Scratch for All Occasions (book 13), Even More Chicken Scratch (book 16), and More Chicken Scratch & Candlewicking (book 15). I bought these books in 2005 and paid $5.00 a piece.
