  • November 1, 2016 - Finished a "no-sew" fleece quilt for my Grand-daughter yesterday

    Amazing - worked on the baby quilt I have been trying to finish for a niece - ran into a problem - will have to take out the stitches. Gave up on machine quilting for the day when the fabric gathered. Finished my grand-daughter's "The Walking Dead" fleece quilt instead. I hope she likes it. I certainly would not want that on my bed - all

  • October 31, 2016 - Don't you hate when you cannot find a quilt pattern???

    Thank goodness - I just found a pattern I previously used five years ago. I need to use up the fabrics purchased to make originally three. I am make two to use up the fabrics. Have you found older projects that you do not remember what they are supposed to be? Scary to me. I am embarrassed to say I have found quite few - not just a couple. LOL "eat

  • October 29, 2016, Saturday - Hope to finish the quilting on a baby quilt

    Wow - the week sure went by fast. I truly do not know why people say retirement is boring. I think it must be because I am so busy. Did not realize I had not published this post - adding that I never did have time to work on the baby quilt. Will start quilting after breakfast. So glad my hubs tells me to take each day one at a time and not feel rushed

    OMG - this is beautiful. One of these days I hope to be able to do something like this. I think I heard a saying - "eat the elephant one bite at a time" - that would be what I will need to tell myself when tackling a project like this. Congrats - and thank you for posting this.

  • Retirement 09/23/2016!!!

    Well, I have been "retired" for a whole month now. I have gotten quite a bit done for my quilting/sewing room. I really did not realize I have so much fabric. This is a crazy amount of fabric. I do not think I need to buy for at least a year or so. I have had a few moments of wanting to just donate some of the fabric, but I can make some baby

  • My first post July3, 2016

    Wow - I want to start blogging about my thoughts and crafting ideas. I love the fact I can do this on my Quilter's Club of America site. Pretty nice perk. I am getting ready to retire - I want to have a place to offload my ideas. I am still working on getting my sewing room organized. I really have too much fabric. My grand-daughter talked me into

  • Just wanted to introduce myself - finally.

    I have been a member for about a year, but never explored the site much. My name is Maimie. I have been quilting since the summer of 2007. I have made a few quilts, ruined a few quilt tops trying to quilt them, but I am hoping to learn more from classes and books. I am glad to be a part of this organization. I am enjoying quilting as not only a great
