  1. Scraps

    by , 11-13-2011 at 12:44 PM
    I'm working on reducing my scrap mess. If you are anything like me, it's hard to throw away any little piece of scrap fabric. I get to thinking that I could use that small piece for an applique project or for paper piecing. But, really, how many small scraps from my two laundry baskets full am I going to use like that? It's time to organize and get rid of some of these. So, I'm starting the "Scrap Therapy" program.
    There are various patterns available for Scrap Therapy ranging ...

  2. Help - FMQ Warm Wishes Quilt

    by , 11-13-2011 at 04:11 AM
    I am just finishing the piecing of a Warm Wishes Quilt. The main block is pale teal with snowmen. I am completely stumped on what to use as a motif for FMQ. It would have to be really simple as I really can't seem to get the hang of FMQ no matter how much I practice. I have many UFOs waiting to be quilted, but because I am so awful at FMQ, they remain undone. As this quilt is just for me, I would like to try yet again to FMQ.

    Any suggestions/tips would be appreciated.

  5. Retail Therapy: Doctor's Orders

    by , 11-12-2011 at 09:28 PM (The Quilting Bear)
    "Honey, I'm just following the doctors orders. He said that if I were to do something that made me happy, I wouldn't get depressed."

    As he holding the credit card statements in his fist, wavering them through the air, "But our insurance does not cover this. I can't itemize these charges on our taxes. And how much happiness did he state that you needed?"

    I'm sure that is going to be my nightmare tonight. In all reality, my partner supports my passion. ...

  10. My Janome 1600p arrived today

    by , 11-12-2011 at 06:59 PM (The Roaming Quilter)
    Have been waiting less than patiently since we got to Florida for my new-to-me Janome 1600p to arrive. She came today, while I was out shopping for fusible thread. She is beautiful, and I think her name is Lydia, for my aunt Lydia who could sew like a dream. I still remember when Mom tried to make a reversible wool coat. One side was leopard--this was the 60's. She got stuck, packed it up in a box, sent it to Lydia to try to turn the lapels correctly. It came back all done, including buttons ...
