Thanks for the kind comments everyone.

Is, this is a block for a quilt. The pattern is called "Vintage Valentine". I tried to post a link but I'm getting tons of errors tonight.

Kris, your block is so pretty!  I am very jealous of quilters who can do such fabulous applique work.  Maybe someday....

Glendasuestewart:

Anyone know the name of this quilt pattern.  I just love it and would like to make one.

Did anyone answer your question, Glenda?  I think that is Cleopatra's Fan.

Hi All,

 

  I am looking to stock up on my Aurifil thread cones for piecing and thought I would share my source....

She has 3 colors  Black, White and aTan color... 6000 yrd cones for a good price...

Happy Quilting everyone...

Kelley, I found an awesome place to get Auritil threads but didn't want to say anything till I had ordered and rec'd my first order... anyway... I did that - it is a store in Canada... and with the shipping which seemed excessive - $18 - but when you added that to the cost of the thread the thread ended up just over $3 a spool for the large spools - not the cones... since I don't do any long arm quilting I don't price the cones but you might check them out - I ordered and had my order in less then 4 days.

I have a web page for them too:

I ordered what they call a door crasher - one was multiple colors and the other reds which i truly needed to do a couple projects and thought would make good gifts for stocking stuffers, mailbox gifts and SS...

There normal price per spool is 4.25 a spool.  I did not find any of the big cones though but for those wanting the 1300 mm size they do carry it.  Price is the best I have found - although you do have to buy a few spools to make the shipping worth your while...

Thea... I did check them out and your right the door crashers are a good price...

I use my cones for piecing and they last forever it seems..6000 yards lasts me about 2 yrs worth of piecing..

I will definitely book mark your site and save it for when I need other colors..

Thanks

Kelley

In honor of National Quilting Day I (Finally!)  finished Spin Cycle.  I finished this top last summer, then decided I really didn't like it all that much and laid it back on the shelf.   Then earlier this month I got an email from the coordinator for the Alzheimer's Diease Cooperative Group that their cupboards were bare. They were out of lap quilts for their research participants. 

I looked around and found Spin Cycle, and a couple of other tops that just needed borders to finish them up.  So three quilts will be shipped out on Monday. 

I tried doing an all-over spiral quilt pattern on Spin Cycle. First time I've tried it, and I will use it again. Next time I'll be able to do a better job with  keeping my spacing even.  I also tried gluing the binding down before stitching it.  I can get binding sewn to the front, and turned to the back just fine. But then the binding would shift a little bit, no matter how many pins I would put in it, when machine stitching it from the front.  Gluing has eliminated that problem!  And the glue washed right out in the wash.  I LOVE IT! 

I'm still not in love with Spin Cycle, but it will now go to a new home where it will be loved and cuddled.

Hope everyone has a fun St. Patrick's Day.  I've got a black and white log cabin quilt calling to me, so I'd better go answer it.  Take care, stay safe, and try to behave!

Max
