  • Re: What's your favorite snack while quilting?

    I am thinking that Vermont Country Store might have Walnettos. I know they have a lot of candies that aren't seen around very much. They are a mail order company. www.vermontcountrystore.com Enjoy your walnettos!

  • Re: How much fabric?

    [quote user="Elizabeth"] Another way to use those fabrics you know longer like is a fabric exchange. My sister is a quilter and our tastes tend to be a bit differant but we love to raid each others stash. [/quote] Elizabeth, That is a great idea! I am familiar with stash trading and stash raiding, but I didn't think of that one. You came

    Minnesota Nancy, Tastes do change, that is a fact. There is always a way to take care of what is no longer to your liking. Using it in a donation quilt. Giving it to a newbie quilter who hasn't the money to build up a stash and would appreciate any fabric, her colors or not. Making a totally scrappy quilt. (There many fabulous and easy patterns

    twizzlers. Red or black. I love them both. Mostly I try not to snack too much when I quilt since I don't need the calories. But give me the twizzlers!

  • Re: How much fabric?

    How much should you buy of a fabric when you don't have a project? Ask yourself questions: Are you a scrappy quilter or a planned quilter? How much do you really it? How well does it fit into your stash? What is your fabric budget? If you are scrappy, then you will want to purchase somewhere between fat eighths, fat quarters, or half yards. If you

  • Re: Anybody going to Lancaster, Pa AQS Quilt Show?

    The idea of wearing a certain color as suggested in some of the posts is a good one. I belong to a much smaller on-line quilt group than this one. Iowa Quilters gets together at the AQS show in Des Moines. We wear pink tiaras or sun visors. Except for two of us. One wears red devil horns and I wear a pink fuzzy angel halo. Since some of our IQ members

  • Re: Anybody going to Lancaster, Pa AQS Quilt Show?

    The AQS Lancaster show has been around a couple of years now. The newest addition to the AQS shows that I know of is the one in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Personally, I want for the AQS show in Des Moines, Iowa since that is where I live. I don't have to pay for lodging or transportation to Des Moines, so I can save all of my money for the show and

  • Re: Old Quilters Newsletter Magazines

    At each meeting, our quilt guild has a table where members can put magazines, books, quilting tools, and even quilting fabric they no longer want. Other members browse these freebies and take whatever they want. I was just to a Right to LIfe booksale and picked up some some old magazines that someone donated. At a small quilt museum in Virginia has

  • Re: need a pattern

    If you can get your hands on a copy of the June 1998 edition (303) of The Quilter's Newsletter Magazine, there are additional patterns that wedding ring patterns. Many of the patterns are easier than the traditional double wedding ring. I especially like the Wedding RIng Tile. If you are wanting to make the traditional double wedding ring pattern

  • Re: Did you work on a quilt today? #2

    Lately I have not been able to do much quilting because medical issues have sapped much of my energy. However, I am involved in a birthday block exchange with fellow members of an online quilt club. 22 signed up for the exchange. Therefore each person makes 21 blocks to send to the others for their birthdays in their choice of colors. My birthday was
