  • Re: Apple core piecing

    Hi, Bluazami, When I hand pieced my king sized Apple Core quilt, I did it in clusters; and then, put the clusters together. All of my clusters were not the same size, as the size had more to do with what I pieced on a particular day. It worked out just fine, however. Good luck with your quilt; I certainly enjoy mine.

  • Re: Step 1-Buying the Fabric!

    Gina, this always causes me trouble: I would want to make three quilts. I love those fabrics. I am a sucker for butterflies. Blues always draw me. Yellows brighten my day, just like sunshine. My first thoughts were make the butterflies the dark, the blue the light and the yellow accent because the blues would be a relaxing quilt, but the yellow would

  • Re: Do we all like hand work

    I love to do handwork, piecing, quilting, embroidery, whatever. However, I also do "crafts" by machine. The results are different, so my project determines my method. Once upon a time, I chose to do those kinds of sewing only by hand, feeling that hand-sewing produced a better and more personal project. I have learned over time that recipients

  • Re: Embroidery machines

    My primary pointer is to jump in and get started and try not to put it aside for a lengthy time ...at least do some small projects off and on so you remember how to do thing things you enjoy with your embroidery machine . This is the voice of experience speaking here: I learned the basics and was very excited at first, but I let the everyday issues

  • Re: How Do You Hand Piece?

    I appreciate your posting pictures... that must be very helpful for newer hand-piecers and hand-quilters. I love to do both. When I piece by hand, I use the running stitch with occasional back stitches or lock stitches. My over-sized king apple core quilt, as one example, was done completely by hand, using this method and has stood up well under strenuous

  • Re: Fake or Real??

    To all of you party lovin' gals, Doesn't the idea of a quilting pajama party with snowflakes flying outside and and a nice real fire inside sound great? Steaming hot chocolate with marshmallows, home baked cookies, Christmas fudge, nice Christmas music floating in the air--competing with the girlish gigles from everywhere--sounds like the most

    Wow, Althea, your allergy to evergreens is really severe. I do hope you are very, very careful around them over the holidays.

    Your home looks so welcoming and comfortable. I think the little reusable and easy to put away tree is wonderful. The deer out front looks ready to join you inside. Fake is okay. I have had fake more of my life than not because my dad learned he was allergic when I was about 8 years old....had been reacting for years but did not realize that he was
