    That's some really good work Connie! I love this quilt. If you're this good with the fabrics you can gather, I'd love to see what you could do with a huge stash! :) That rotary cutter almost looks real enough to cut you! Really, such good work.

    I'm glad you figured out what to do about the wavy edges. I've found that if I use a thinner batting, and use a single binding on smaller wall hangings, they tend to lay against the wall better and not be so wiggly. :)

    It really is wonderful!! The sewing machine reminds me of the one my mother used for years and years.

    I would like to know how to find this pattern to purchase. I tried "Needles & Notions" but it didn't give me any info. Thanks for your help.

    I'm new to this board so I don't know any of you. But someone posted very good information on getting the pattern for the Quilting Sue. As it turns out, I already have the book! Now I have an idea for something for my quilting room. Many thanks to the kind poster.

    Hi, Connie
    I have bought the smallest dowels, and inserted them into the binding on one of my wall hangings that had a tendency to do this. With the mitered binding, I could just slip them in and out as needed.

    Thank you for the complements, everyone. The foundation piecing was a challenge because the blocks were small (6 inches), but I was pleased with the results.

    I've just returned from the US where I celebrated by younger son's graduation (Master in Psychology) and my elder son's wedding. Now I am thinking of my next foundation pieced project.

    Happy quilting all. 8)

    Connie,
    I had seen this post before and thought oh wow, that is beautiful and I could have sworn that I posted but I guess I didn't. I love this. You did a wonderful job! I haven't tried foundation piecing yet, you make it look so easy! :D

    Hi Jane,

    The pattern that we used came from the book Needles and Notions: Paper Pieced patterns with a Sewing Room Theme by Jeanette Huff. A friend brought the book from the US and several of us in our quilting club used it to make our wall hangings. Scroll up to amma's posting of Sept. 6 and check out the websearch that she made to locate the book.


    Happy quilting.

    Connie

    I had one that was doing the wave as well. I had some very thin dowels and slid them into the binding on the back at the mitre on the sides and bottom. Left them in for probably a year, and now it doesn't need them. Hangs nice and straight. I don't sew the mitres closed when I apply my binding. It is my avatar picture.

    Very nice work. Lebanon? Don't they have wonderful local ethnic fabrics there? I have a friend who came back from Kurdistan & Pakistan and emailed pictures of local ethnic fabrics. I was amazed at how colorful and beautiful they were and we never see these ethnic cottons in the US. She is shipping some , I can hardly wait. Looking forward to seeing more of you work on the board.
