    click on the "search" option at the top of the page. search on "quilting in sections". lots of information, links, comments and suggestions already here.

    you can also do an internet search on the same term. you'll find bazillions of links.

    this is one of my favorite because it illustrates more than one method:

    Patrice, that link shows more ways than I even knew about. One thing I have done is sort of cut the batting kind of wavy then butt together. To be perfectly honest, don't remember where I got that tip, but it doesn't leave a ridge line, which I like. Keep the tips coming, we all have much to learn. :D

    Hello Barb:

    Your Easter quilt is lovely. The colors are so peaceful and tranguil. Thank you for sharing this.

    Many time the quilt patters have used the ugliest colors for their cover, so I am turned off. Need to think outside the pattern...HA.

    One of my favorite magazines for quilting is "Quilters Newsletter Magazine." Many of the quilts they used on the covers of their magazine, had horrible color combinations. A real turn off for me. Still bought the magazine, however.

    They are doing better. For a beginner quilter, I wonder how many by passed this magazine, due to the ugly colors.

    Thanks again for sharing.

    HAND PRINTS...OR TRACING DESIGNS OF HANDS
    Hello: I thought of this when I was visiting my grandsons in Denver a
    couple months ago. The little one was 24 months at the time, brother Alec is now 10.5. Baby Sean weighed 2#. Weighs probably near 20# now. Both are my life.

    Will do this for sure when I do back to Denver in July. I could kick myself for not doing it them, because of time difference.

    My daughter has plaster casts for the boys, framed in a shadow box. They are so sweet.

    Take Care.

    gmassard: Just hit your site and will go back. Really do like the way you go about teaching the beginners. Thanks for sharing your expertise with us.

    Years ago, a dear quilting friend of mine, bought a quilting pattern, and was so unhappy with the instructions...they were certainly difficult to comprehend, even after several attempts to make sense of them.

    She wrote co. and they never replied. Nice people.

    Speaking of the YBR pattern-- does anyone know where / if it is available online for free? Or does it have to be ordered from Atkinson Design?

    The reason I don't use Quilters Cache is the MUSIC! It drives me insane when I am trying to search. I also agree that the site can be confusing, especially to a beginner.

    Mandy, it is a very inexpensive pattern, and one you will use again. Any quilt shop will carry it and I think the price is like $7. Believe me, this is a great pattern to have for those times you need something in a hurry. Or the times you just fall in love with an entire fabric line but don't know how to showcase them. The pattern covers baby thru huge bed quilt, so you will find it useful. :lol:

    I concur about the quilter's cache being a little confusing. I love most of the patterns there, but am unsure if I can actually do them or not. I know she has the pin system with how many types of piecing are in the block. I think she should have separated them beginner, advanced, expert or something like that. But that doesn't stop me from going there all the time to look at the patterns!!

    THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR INPUT YOU HAVE GIVEN ME ON EASY QUILTS. USUALLY WHEN I GET DONE WITH THEM, WITH EMBELISHMENTS, ONE WOULD NEVER KNOW THEY WERE EASY. :)

    wHEN MY DAUGHTER AND HER HUSBAND WERE STATIONED AT MT. HOME AFB, MTN. HOME ID....50 MILES EAST OF BOISE, I WOULD TAKE A PANEL AND DIDN'T KNOW WHEN TO STOP. THEY WERE NOT ALLOWED TO SELL IT, BUT COULD TAKE DONATIONS FOR THE NCO WIVES CLUB.

    THEY ARE LIVING IN DENVER, NOW IN A $425,000 HOME. THEY STARTED OUT SMALLER OF COURSE, MADE A LARGE PROFIT WHEN THEY SOLD THAT FIRST HOME IN AURORA, CO. BOTH OF THEM ARE COLLEGE GRADS AND MAKE VERY GOOD MONEY. YOU HAVE TO IN DENVER, WELL, JUST ABOUT LIKE HERE IN RAPID CITY, SD. PRICE OF HOMES HAS GONE BEYOND THE MIDLE CLASS ANYMORE.

    JULIA ROBERTS...YES THE ACTRESS...IS MOVING INTO MY BACK SURGEONS HOME NOT FAR FROM MY PLACE. SO THIS WILL PROBABLY INFATE REA ESTATE EVEN MORE. OH, WELL, SO IT GOES.

    I RETIRED FROM TEACHING AT THE HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL 2 YEARS AGO DUE TO CFS. TAKE RITALIN NOW, SO AT LEAST I HAVE SOME ENERGY. I TOOK ONE DOSAGE THIS AM WITH SKIM MILK, SHOULD HAVE BEEN STRONGER...NOT DOSEAGE BUT FOOR.

    HAVE LOST 1993 IS LAST FOUR YEARS, SO STAY AWAY FROM FOOD...BUT I STILL,LOVE SWEETS.

    BUY FOR NOW, AND THANKS SO MUCH. IF YOU HAVE A SPARE PRAYER FOR ME WHILE PRAYING FOR OUR TROOPS, ETC, SEND IT MY WAY. I WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE THIA.

    ALSO IF ANY TYPOS, DUE TO HYPERNESS OF RITALIN...HA

    HAVE A GOOD WEEK. 8)

    I have lost 100# not 1993. I must be having a senior moment. And Boo, what is the inexpensive pattern you wrote about on May 21. Thanks

    I love to use a modified log cabin block. Am posting a picture of one that I made recently. The middle square is cut at 6 1/1 inches square the other pieces are strips cut at 2 1/2 pieces. I will try to post a picture of it so you can see what I mean. You can chain piece it real easy. Start with the first piece and sew all of them on, cut them apart and then go to the second piece etc. etc.

    By far the absolute easiest quilt pattern I've come across on the web is this one: http://byannie.com/free_patterns.html it's appropriately called "Wickedly Easy" I've done the crib size 36 x 52 in about 3 1/2 hours. You just have to try it.
    Here is one I did in pink and white

    It's hanging over the lap size I did in blue and yellow

    I also have CFS, lupus, and fibromyalgia. I have decided to try my hand at quilting because it looks like something I can out down for awhile if I need to!

    I can't get the wickedly easy pattern to load. Is there somewhere else to get it? That looks great and I need a pattern for something quick and easy cause some of the girls at work are having babies.

    That looks great for a beginner. I am printing it out! I am getting so many ideas here I think I shall start a little notebook. Soon I will have my own little quilting book!
