  • Re: Kansas Troubles Fabric

    I first started working with Kansas Troubles fabrics when I was working on an Underground Railroad Sampler quilt. I found many worked well with reproduction fabrics. They added to the overall look I wanted. There are many more reproduction fabrics now. Glad I did those quilts 7 years ago as I became a fan of Kansas Troubles. There is a new book called

    If we do layer cakes, we'll just be sending each other the same ones. I personally would rather do fat quarters or some cut where we could get a selection.

    I haven't done this before but would love to join this swap. What are you thinking for size pieces, etc...? I love Kansas Troubles and have no idea how many quilts, wallhangings, tablerunners and the like I have done. Please include me. Ira

    A layer cake will make a nice throw (46" x 62") before borders. I have one ready for two borders.

  • Pink Patches Doll quilt

    This is a doll quilt from The Civil War Sewing Circle. I had purchased this book at the Shipshewana Quilt Festival last June and hadn't made anything from it yet. This was the perfect group to get me going. The fabrics aren't all Kansas Troubles or CW reproductions but they are scraps from the fabrics I used when making an Underground Railroad

  • Pink Patches Doll Quilt

    This is from the book "The Civil War Sewing Circle" by Kathleen Tracy for the group Parasols & Fabric. I'm trying to decide if it is large enough for my granddaughter to use with her American Girl doll from this era, or if I can add another border for a little more size.

  • Twister Halloween "boo"

    My avatar for Oct is this twister Halloween greeting. I saw a similar design some where but then couldn't find it when I was ready, so I got out the graph paper and graphed out what I wanted. We've enjoyed having it up this year.
