Judi, I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your son.  What a tragic day!  It's nice to know that a quilt can bring comfort under the worst of circumstances.

Judi, I'm sure I can say I speak for all of us when I say our hearts go out to you.  This must be a difficult day for you.

  Thank you for reminding us about making charity quilts, we are all so lucky to be able to make something that can give so much comfort to others.

lindalennox:

By the way how do you set up the signature??  Thanks

Hi lindalennox and welcome to QCA.  I don't know if anyone has answered your question yet so here are the directions for a signature:

Go to this link:
My Live Link  and follow the signature wizard instructions.

Once you get what you want, then choose 'want to use this signature'
then choose the 'generate BB code', then 'generate code for my hand written signature'.

When the code is created, highlight it and copy it to the signature spot in your profile.

When you get to the page where it ask if you want HTML or BB code select BB code
Next page - click on Generate a code for my handwritten signature..
Scroll down to generated BB code and copy the code..

Then:
Click on My Profile
Click on the Site Options tab

Scroll down to the signature box

Paste the code in the signature box
Scroll down to the bottom of the page and save and hopefully you will have a fancy new

signature.


Thread Link: Fancy Signatue

Be sure to save it when you add it to your profile.

 

Life is like a quilt...bits & pieces, joy & sorrow, stitched with love

lindalennox:

realize that I just wrote a really long post, so I'll have to write more at another date...

It has been great reading everybody

hello and welcome Linda

I think I also made one of my first quilts when my sister had her first. That would be almost 28 years ago. 

Anyway, I just wanted to welcome you and you are not alone. We are all quiltaholics, fabraholics and whatever. 

We all have been bitten by the quilting fever and I can't think of another illness I would rather have. 

I have made so many wonderful acquaintances on this site. Had so much fun. Learned so much. Received so much praise and support. 

You will just luv it. 

Welcome Welcome!!!!

Thanks Spud, as you can see, it worked.  I had tried copying from Word, but it told me I had too many characters (I know I just saw another post on this).

By the way, I like Chai tea lattes and I can make a mean choc chip/dried cherry cookie I'll bring next time

Isn't there a recipe thread? I think you should post the recipe for this cookie, Linda!

Hi Y'all and welcome to all the newbies,

Been busier than a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs.   Fabric shopping on Thurs., taught a beginners quilt class at the Sr. Center on Friday, more fabric shopping on Sat.  Boy, are my arms tired...lugging on all those bags...lol   Quilt class went great.  Ladies were all excited about learning the disappearing 9-patch.  I have 3 out of 8 ladies that are sewing everything by hand.  Even piecing by hand.   I brought a supply of fat quarters with me (ones given to me from shop hops) to practice on.  They loved the idea.  They practiced before they cut into their good fabric.   When they got all done making their 9-patches we breaked for lunch.  After lunch, when I told them they had to cut them apart into quarters, I thought they were going to chase me out of the building....lol    But when I showed them, they got excited.  The hand stitchers are going to do it a bit different just because they are hand stitching so that their patches don't all fall apart.  But they still cut the same 5 inch squares of everything to start.  They just have to cut some into halves, and the centers into quarters and sew separate pieces.  Other ladies were having fun cutting up and then re-sewing.  Next Friday should be interesting.  See the fabrics of each student, and how different each one looks.   More converts to quilting....LOL

Diana that's great. Sounds like you have a really enthusiastic bunch in your class.

I have a new convert as well. One of the young ladies at work has decided to make her first quilt. She is 21, currently in school and works per diem at the hospital. She's been asking lots of questions and she brought in swatches of her fabric choices last Friday. I'm as excited as she is by the whole thing.

Kris and Diana--

Sounds like you're both doing your part to bring others into the wonderful world of quilting.  I think that is one of the greatest joys of this passion of ours.  When I was teaching school, I treasured the part of my week that was spent quilting with my students.  They were such enthusiastic learners, even at the tender of 6 or 7, and I hope they'll keep it up or take it up again when they're older.

Hi Diana

What is a disappearing 9-patch?  Is there a pattern somewhere on line I could look at?  I've never heard about that particular class before, but it sounds interesting

Diana, I was wondering about your class. Sounds like it's going great! Are you taking pictures you can share? Joyce is right in that you and Kris are both helping to foster the art of quilting.

For several years, when we were in modern Am. Lit, the kids studied a poem called "My Mother Pieced Quilts". We'd do the typical analysis of the poem, but then I'd bring in pieces of fabric. The kids would each make a signature block. I would then sew the blocks into a wall hanging with an appliqued camel (school mascot) in the center and have a drawing for the hanging. I made one for each class in which we read this poem. It was also interesting to me that many of the boys could tread needles much better than the girls. In one class, one boy barely got to work on his block because he was always threading everyone else's needles.

Unfortunately, with the advent of No Child Left Behind, this is one of the activities that had to be dropped. I truly dislike that law!

Hi Tricia,    If you type Disappearing 9-patch into your Google search or whichever one you use, you will see lots of places that show you a disappearing 9 patch.  Just look at the ones that say "Tutorial".  Some give pictures to show you so that you will understand what they are doing.  It's really nice.    Here's a couple baby quilts done with the disappearing nine-patch so you can see what they look like when finished.

It really is a fun pattern, even for a beginner.

Hope you find it and have fun.

Diana from East Tn.
