  • My First Quilt: Wild Goose Chase

    "Wild Goose Chase" December 2010. 39x39 inches. Machine pieced. Hand quilted. I finished my first quilt ever! Hurrah! It was hand quilted and made using a pattern from Alex Anderson's book "Start Quilting" 3rd edition (2009). I am kind of proud of my hand quilting stitches. They are wobbly and a little uneven, but not too bad

  • Re: Did you work on a quilt today?

    I finished hand quilting the inner part of my first quilt. Now I just have to quilt the borders and do the binding. I'm getting there. I bent three needles on the first day, then got into a groove with this one needle that never bent. It escaped into the couch cushions one day, and I had to stitch with a new needle. Ugh. The new one was hurky jerky

    Marge, I lived in Jackson, GA, not far from the dam. My mom still lives there. I left GA in 1997 when I moved to the UK, and returned the U.S. in Sept 2001.

    Joan, I have never made a MQ. Perhaps I shall one day, but probably not any time soon. Right now I am working full-time and studying full-time, so I don't have as much time for quilting as I would like. I usually quilt while the rest of the family watches a movie. I bring my cutting table up to the living room so we can all be together. Heh. The

  • Re: How I baste/sandwich my quilts

    [quote user="wbrownsf"] Iron and pin method? I haven't heard of that (or is that when you use the safety pins?) I've always thrown the quilt on the floor and then attacked it with the needle and thread. I'd love to hear about other methods of basting for hand quilters. [/quote] I was thinking of laying it out on the tables as shown

  • Re: How I baste/sandwich my quilts

    Okay, so here I was thinking I would never be able to make anything larger than a lap quilt because I don't have a room large enough for the basting process. It never occurred to me to take it up to my church. Duh! :-) I don't know about the spray basting though. I hand quilt. I think perhaps I'll try the iron and pin method first. Thanks
