  • Sea Diamonds

    This was made with the pattern Diamonds at Large which came from a library book (can't remember which) with a layer cake called Sea Glass" by Tonga. I quilted it basically following the diamond shapes. It is 45 x 60 so it is a good lap size. My daughter likes it so she is taking it to college with her.

  • Sometimes people really know what they are talking about

    I had seen posts from people saying that they found it very difficult to make a quilt if they did not pick out the fabric and pattern. I would nod my head and say "yes, I can see why that is." Now I KNOW why that is... My in-laws moved to assisted living this past June and my sister-in-law came to me with a box. Inside the box were 32 quilt

  • For my mother-in-law

    My in-laws moved to assisted living last June and my MIL had some blocks she made many years ago. My SIL asked me to finish it up. I made four more blocks and had it quilted by the longarm quilter because it was 98x98. Unfortunately my FIL passed away just before it was ready, which I felt badly about, but I guess you never know about these things.

  • Re: Pretty miffed with QCA

    I don't think I will renew either. The spam is ridiculous and has been going on for a long long time. I don't really use the VIP benefits either, and I can buy the magazine (which I actually like very much) at the store. I haven't personally been experiencing the login problems some of you have. The thing is that they should be more responsive

  • Re: Binding- nicely mintered corners

    I was having problems with this as well but on another thread I read this: Stop your stitching the same distance from the corner as the width of your finished binding.My problem was that my finished binding is usually a little more than 1/4" because I start with a 2-1/2 inch strip instead of 2-1/4 inches (that way I can use jelly roll strips -

  • The reality doesn't always match the vision

    Last fall my friend and I went to a quilt show, A Quilter's Gathering. At the show, we discovered that they were having a challenge for all quilters in honor of the 25th anniversary of the Gathering, where the quilter would purchase a fat quarter bundle and make a quilt that would be part of the show this coming fall. The quilts have to be turned

  • Finishing the quilt my MIL started many years ago...help!

    Hi My in-laws are moving into assisted living. They have been going through the house and I have accepted a stack of quilt blocks, templates, and fabric that were part of a quilt my MIL had started a long time ago. I have never done something like this before, piecing someone else's quilt top or doing anything with old fabric. The fabric is old

  • Re: T-shirt Quilt

    Yes, I have done this. Cut the T-shirt up the side seams and across the top just below the collar (the front or the back, whichever you are using for the quilt). Then use fusible interfacing to stabilize the T-shirt so it won't stretch - you can buy this by the yard at Joann's and it's very cheap. After that you can cut the stabilized T
