  1. I still surf the site

    by , 05-03-2014 at 03:36 PM
    I still surf the site but hadnt posted anything since 2012 i think. But anyways, my inspiration for getting into quilting was my grandmother, Julia. Well on March 16th she went home to heaven. I still feel the loss but amongst some of the things in her room were a couple small lap quilts I had made her and in the kitchen some pot holders that had been well used. They are with me now at my house and it warms my heart to know that grandma used these things often.

    This pattern is also known as Arkansas Crossroads. It's very easy to put together and a great leader ender project.
    The first two pics are Goodnight Irene, the last is Be Attitudes, from whence the leftover squares came. Please excuse the poor quality of the pics, I couldn't

    by , 04-27-2014 at 05:56 PM
    It's been so long since I spent time in the Board and I feel sort of lost with all the posts to recheck and photos to look at. Everyone's been so busy and doing lovely pieces of art.

    It been a long time since I've been able to sit in my sewing cave and spend the day sipping coffee, stitching, and fabric dreaming. We remodeled the basement over the winter and all the stuff from one side of the basement was moved into my sewing cave and I was not able to even get to a corner of ...

  8. Quilts of Valor

    by , 04-27-2014 at 12:11 PM (From My Carolina Home)
    It was a rainy weekend, so I used the time to finish up the quilting on two quilts of valor. I used pantographs on both quilts. The star quilt got a simple swirl. It is a great panto because it can go two passes without having to advance the quilt. This makes the quilting go nice and quick.
