    by , 08-08-2013 at 01:43 PM
    As I mentioned in my last post, I have been getting quite a few requests for the paper piecing templates for the Prairie Star block. I am trying to make this blog post to include them. Hope it works. Hope you enjoy them. The PDF includes a coloring sheet and the templates (sample template and it's reverse). Together, they make 1/4 of the block, and are actual size

  2. Prairie Star Quilt Block - Free Pattern: Requests coming in

    by , 08-08-2013 at 01:24 PM
    I posted this in reply a long while ago for someone interested in making a star sampler. I have had lots of requests in the past few weeks for the paper pieced templates. I drew the block in EQ7. I will make a separate, quick blog post tonight with the pp templates if I can get it to work so those of you interested in the block can use it.

    Original reply: "I have always loved the Prairie Star. (See below). It works great with paper piecing. You can also make a quilt in a "star ...

  5. camping and sewing

    by , 08-06-2013 at 12:31 PM
    I am a new memeber to this blog. I noticed a discussion about taking sewing machines on a camping trip. I am going camping in a pop-up for 3 weeks. Would love to take my machine. Has anyone ever taken their machine in a pop-up? I noticed no one took it in a tent. My main concern is condensation. Of course when I am not using the machine, it will be in my pop-up. We are dry inside, but it is cool in the morning (Maine) and there is some general dampness. I am leaving this Friday Aug. 9, 2013. I ...

    I'm new to this site so if you talked about this earlier; I'm sorry for the repeat. I recently purchased a Voyager and am confused about which cone thread I should purchase. Can anyone give me some advice and tell me about your experiences with cotton vs polyester. 2 ply 3 ply????

    When I took it out in September, it was for something to do while I sat minding the Quilts at the County Fair. I received so many compliments and remarks that they can't wait to see it finished next year. I don't know if I can get it done for that, but I have

My own "lil girlie cave". yessss. ahhhh so onward i got out some paint and repainted the room to the colors i had on hand. Top half of room is white and the bottom half is dark cherry with a border that matches soo perfectly. i forgot i had ...
  10. 5yo GS left yesterday and I'd quilt if I could get out of this recliner!

    by , 08-03-2013 at 11:13 AM
    We kept our 5yr old G-son for a week so he could attend Vacation Bible School--and to give his folks a break before new baby next month. My DH and I are so beat--we can't get out of our recliners! My most recent knee repair in June did not hold up to attempts to play soccer--or the zoo, riding horses, etc. He and I did a tie fleece blankie for him to take to a baby shower as his present. He still uses his "blankie" that I made him--drags it everywhere. Plus he thought that we should ...
