Kris, love your pillow.

Karla, your quilt came out great, love the batiks.

Max, beautiful job, front and back.

Elizabeth, is this your third quilt?  You are fast.  Glad you took a class, that can be very helpful when beginning.  Learning things the hard way can take a lot of time.  (and in my case, wasted fabric.)

Max, another stunner. i love the fabic on the back. What is that??

I don't have the name of the fabric, but I know they sell it at JoAnn's.

 

I used that fabric for the back of a quilt. I bought it at Joann's too and I remember it was made by Henry Glass

I found some of the fabric. The selvedge says " 'tatsu' The Alexander Henry Fabric Collection 2006."

Another winner Max! And you used my sons favorite dragon fabric for the back, he has it on the back of his black and white quilt too.

Thanks to allof you for your wonderful comments! 

Sukochi--I'm not sure if you were asking what the name of the pattern is, or what the print is.  It is dragons, and the name of the pattern is "tatsu", by Alexander Henry.  If you double click on the picture it will enlarge so you can see the dragons better.

Started a block for my next quilt this evening.  After the third time of removing the same 4 inch seam I decided it was time to back away from the machine and go to bed!

Yes, it is my day off.   That means I am going to work on quilting, or at least sewing.  I told my sister I would work on her banjo case before she comes this weekend.   Clean my sewing room and maybe pick out this month's UFO.  I think I will put something on my design board!

All that in one day Patti? You are an organized and efficient woman!

No, I just get distracted very easily.   Probably why I have so many UFO's.  I think it would take me about 3 years of doing one a month to catch up.

Back embroidering flower blocks today, along with sewing some of those tiny little squares together for the alternating blocks while impatiently waiting for the next step of MQ 8.

Well, I didn't get to DSister's banjo case, but I did find my Amish with a twist block of the month, put what I had on the design board, sewed a couple more blocks and am now only 1 block behind.  If I finish this with every one else, it will be the first time I have completed a block of the month on time.  Come to think of it.  I have never finished a block of the month before!!!

I turned in my first 2 charity quilts yesterday. A friend Pat has been coming over sewing strips and blocks for me. We are now officially the Ohio Chapter of Reap What You Sew. I would like to be affiliated with my church so need to sit down and talk to Pastor about that.

My project for the Standing Stones Retreat Center in Arizona is coming along very well. I completed 1 quilt. I have 5 tops ready to quilt; 2 of which are by the machine ready to go. I've started piecing the Christian Cross and I have 2 other quilts all cut out. Then I decided to do the AZ Centennial Quilt and I just received the pattern last week. One of the quilt that I've cut out is a Navajo quilt.. I will be working on all theses at the Amish retreat. I'm taking my quilt with hopes to at least start on it.

We have an unexpected opening for the Amish retreat, June 19-22. All it requires is a $30 deposit with registration and $184 at check in. This is the best price I've ever seen for a retreat. All the retreats I've ever attended were close to $300 for the same length of time. So I think we have a bargin here. If anyone is interested, please send me a PM.

Linda, looks like you've been so busy.  I love the name of your quilt chapter. Do you live in Ohio or Arizona? Looks like you're sewing for both states? I was wondering about that Amish retreat, where is it located?  I'm just going to my first retreat this month, actually 2 in one month and I've never been to any before!  Will see how I like them.  One is with a speaker and one is just sewing with other quilting ladies.

Enjoy family, friends and hobbies

I am trying to work on a quilt today....but I need your help.  Opinions are welcome and requested!

Here is the situation:  1)  I am making a lap quilt for an elderly lady with limited vision. She has an ability to see a little bit if she is able to hold something in strong light.   That is the reason I used bright solid contrasting colors.  2) Like many elderly people with limited vision, she likes to touch, stoke, and feel textures with her fingers. That is why each block has a different 'textured' center.

What I need your help with is the borders.   I want to add a border that will be 5 to 7 inches wide. And I do NOT want to use white.    My question to you is:  Should I make them four different colors (like in the picture)?   Should I make them all one color?  If I make them all the same color...what color do you suggest, other than white? ( I  am not limited to the four colors shown.) 

Detail of some of blocks:

Thanks for your help!   Max

Max, I can't help you with your color selection. But I love what you are doing with the touchy feeling quilt. What a wonderful and thoughtful idea.
