  • Third Completed UFO in 2014

    I neglected to post about numb er two which was the delectable mountains quilt. Today I finished a paper pieced calendar quilt that I started in 1997. It was a mystery quilt from the internet. I machine quilted it and used an envelope edge finish. Woo Hoo! I also found another mystery wall quilt from the internet, yes, unfinished. This one is a Christmas

    Thanks to the great cupons from JoAnne Fabriics this weekend I was able to buy the backing fabric and the batting for this quilt. I'm washing the backing today. Who knows when I will be able to starch and iron it. Hopefully it will be soon!

  • Planet Patchwork Mystery Quilt 1997

    I'm wondering if anyone still has this pattern with the diagram of the layout. I'm in the process of actually finishing this quilt. I've looked through my quilting notebooks and cannot find this pattern. I know this is the pattern because all the little zip loc bags with patches in them have this name written on them. I have laid it out

Today I laid the blocks out on the bed and took photos of two different layouts. I also looked through all my quilt pattern notebooks to see if I still had the instructions. Did not find them. I

  • Sampler Quilt

    My sampler quilt is yet another UFO from the 1990's. All but two of the blocks had been pieced years ago. I had to take one block apart and redo it to get the points to match.

  • Re: Hand quilting questions?

    Marge, I too use the Gutterman 100% cotton quilting weight thread. I always pull my thread through bees wax as well. I have quilted a queen size quilt on a frame that sits in my lap. There is a little platform that holds the hoop. The hoop can be tilted and turned to suit your best quilting direction. I enjoy using this frame in cold weather. In warm
