Do you think a glass bullet would keep a vampire away???

Last I heard it was a silver bullet...that is if you believe in vampires.

Nope. Silver bullets are what you use on Werewolves. Wooden stakes are for vampires. And Glass bullets work on Quilt police... ;-)

Quilters are people who strip so they won't go topless.

Marie:

I love reference books as well but have so many.  Do you think these books would be a good investment in that case?

BTW, I mailed out the fabric for my BD block yesterday, thanks again for volunteering

Marie

I am like you- I have so many quilting books- and especially reference. But if you made me give up some and choose which ones to keep- Hands down I would keep The Quilter's Academy books because of the wealth of information they provide. Detailed info that I never knew.  What I like best about these books is they tell you "why" to do something a certain way. Or if you can do things more than one way- here are your options, try them all and pick which one works for you.  I love these books and will buy them all.

For example, in Volume 3- they have a section on batting- when I buy batting I always look at the suggested distance for quilting. Harriet and Carrie Hargrave taught me something on page 114 of their latest book Quilters Academy Vol III... " Many batting brands suggest they can be quilted 10" apart. We would like you to be aware of a basic problem with this misleading claim. What is being said is the batting will not fall apart if quilted up to 10" apart."  They go on to say........ they are not taking into consideration the wear and tear on a quilt w/ a limited # of quilting stitches.  Quilts are heavy and heavier when wet and washed and dried.  Basically they state to quilt them no farther than 3" apart.  And if we were to look at quilts that are old we would see they are heavily quilted.  I paraphased the last few sentences.

But I never knew that a heavily quilted quilt would stand up better than one that wasn't.  I am probably the only one.  They also had some fabulous info on batting. And I need to work through the exercises on triangles because I know that will really improve my skills in those areas.

I got your fabric today for your Birthday blocks, it is so beautiful.  Now to do it justice!  Glad to help out!

The Quilt Daddy:
I am in need of quick and easy bake sale items

Richard

Here is a favorite and easy recipe that most people love-

Peanut Butter Brownie Cups

1 package Fudge Brownie Mix (21- 1/2 ounces)

15 to 18 Reeces Peanut Butter Cups

Mix brownie batter according to package directions.  Fill paper-lined or foil -lined muffin cups two-thirds full.

Remove wrappers from peanut butter cups;  set one in each muffin cup and press down until batter meets the top edge of the candy.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.  COOL for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.  Makes 1 1/2 dozen.

The recipes sound so good!  Somehow, I'm not hungry tho - had an EHC potluck lunch today, our Spring Fling meeting where all the clubs get together, and boy, do we have some good cooks, so it's great.  I'm too lazy tonight to do anything much, so I sat here and listened to the Legendary Quilters Interview - with Bonnie Hunter, on her website.  Boy, no wonder she gets so much done, sounds so very energetic and enthused, over an hour and she never quits!  If you haven't heard it, you might like to look it up.            Well, now back to the auction projects tomorrow, more ideas from today's meeting.

Thank you everyone for your nice complements on my Granddaughters web site. 

She opens Saturday, and the annuals and perennials arrive Friday.  The green house isn't finished.  And it's snowing and cold out there.  Oh Boy!

 A bed without a quilt is like a sky without stars.

Thanks for your thoughts on the QA books.  I will give it some serious thought and maybe have a look at them at my LQS.

You are so sweet to volunteer to add to my BD blocks Marlene, thank you.  Hope you have fun with it.

((((Hugs))))

Actually silver bullets, stakes, knives etc. will kill vampires and werewolves!  Originally it was silver nitrate that was the killer, hmmm, guess it all depends of which book, movies and folklore we chose to believe.

Personally I've always liked a CROSS and BRIGHT daylight, sizzle and burn, that does them in!

Don't I recall something about sousing them with Holy water having the same effect??
