  • Re: When the Short Cut ends up the Long Way

    You are right, you just have to roll with it and use caution next time I have a big idea for a short cut. My deadline was going to be Monday (yesterday) because I was going to give it to a co-worker on her first day back from maternity leave. I think a big part of my distress was because I knew that because of my short-cut I would now "miss"

  • When the Short Cut ends up the Long Way

    So, I had this little baby quilt that I was quickly going to put together for a co-worker. Decided to try Hobbs Fusible batting to take a shortcut and not have to pin before doing my machine quilting. I had planned a simple diamond grid quilting pattern, marked up my top and set to quilting. I had drama from the start with my tension, so I ripped out

  • Re: "Piece" of family history

    UPDATE: Exciting News - my nephew was born on December 25, 2012. It was such a miracle to have him born after losing his brother way to early. I used the blocks from my great-grandmother into a quilt for my new nephew. Quite the generational quilt as my Great Grandmother made the blocks, my Grandmother inspired me to create the pinwheel blocks (she

  • Reborn Antique

    The star and grandmothers flower garden blocks are from my Great-Grandma's collection. I cleaned them up and put this in a quilt for my nephew. The pinwheels are made from modern era reproduction fabrics. The quilting is free motion with my home machine. The embroidery was done by my hand.

  • Re: First Quilt Show

    Thanks ladies! Your advice really helped, so happy I posted. I would have never thought of gloves and I was worried that camera's wouldn't be allowed. Big comfy totes make a lot of sense too, I always forget those and end up with plastic bags - totes are definately better. And I am actually happy to hear that mom's with kids might be there

  • First Quilt Show

    Excited to attend my first Quilt Show and Conference this week in Rochester MN. I didn't sign up for a class but I'll get to enjoy the eye candy (quilts) which I am sure will make me itch to get home and quilt myself. Any suggestions for me - is there something I absolutely should pack in my purse for the trip or things I should seek out?

  • Re: Let's talk batting

    I use Warm and Natural for most of my quilts, for kennel quilts I sometimes use old blankets (the thin poly kind that almost look like batting). For potholders, table runners and some wall hangings I like the stiffness and safety features of Insulbrite. Has anyone tried the Hobbs brand - any stories to share. I was thinking of giving it a try.

  • Celebrating Dad

    My dad is a vietnam war vet - I made this for him. The blue border fabric has a map motif to it, which fit perfectly as he often talks about all the travels he did while he was a Marine. The yellow chevrons represent his rank. The corner pieces of the center medallion are fussy cut to show the Marines. The center star was a fun challenge since I was
