Donna B:
SO, if anyone is interested, this info is on my blog.  If you want to see it, look there...

 

Thanks for the restaurant info Donna. I also enjoyed your photos from your Oregon trip and the Sisters quilts. We had planned to take our RV to the show last year but it just didn't happen.

Has anyone who's going to the Oregon retreat done a mitered binding on a DWR?  Reading the instructions just isn't cutting it for me. It says to attach binding to the top BEFORE layering and quilting. Then turn it to the back after quilting. Because of the need to trim after I've quilted a top, this doesn't make sense to me. 

I won't be anywhere near ready to bind the DWR I'm working on, but if I have a sample made up could someone help me with the process?  I asked at the quilt stores and none of them have bias bound a DWR.

Judy, maybe they are having you attaching the binding first to help the edges to not fray and stretch while quilting? That seems to be a hard way to me. I'll have to drag out my DWR project and see what it says. I think I would layer and pin/baste the layers together. then I would baste ( long length stitch with my machine) around the edge to secure it before I started quilting. Then I would trim up the batting and backing to match the front when the quilting was completed. As fas as doing the bias binding with the mitered inner sections, I would search online, I bet there's some u-tube or other tutorial out there somewhere.

Only about 6 more weeks....woohoo.   I am really getting excited.   Now if I could just get the MQ finished and steps ready for Mandy so that I can get my projects ready to bring.    I think it is going to be a busy few weeks....LOL>

I just took the opportunity to check your restaurant list.   The Sea Hag menu sounds delicious and I see they list Dungeness Crab on the menu.

Always. LOL

You got it.

I designed it a long time ago, started it then changed my mind about the colours/fabrics. Bought new fabrics then hit a wall. All my quilting mojo dried up.

Are you sure it dried up, maybe it's been saving itself for  the retreat.

We have 2-3 openings.  One or two women could share a room in unit downstairs where Spud was going to stay.  I would like to get this filled so we can reimburse Spud.

There is still an opening to share a room with me (queen bed) upstairs above the sand box. 

I have had a couple people voice an interest but no commitment yet.

Patti, I would announce this in a thread outside of groups so more people will see it.
