• I've been gone a while, but not from quilting

    Hello everyone I've been away from this website for almost a year now. Not because I have lost interest in quilting, but because I have focused on losing weight and getting fit. I did reach my goal for weight loss and toning in November, from which I quickly rebounded just a little, so I'm back at the loss mode, but will also be back here now

  • Has anyone here made a Joseph's Coat quilt?

    I saw one of these today and it was stunning. I just purchased the pattern and I'm thinking of using my cousin's Crown Royal bags as the background and coordinating colors for the "pedals". My original idea for his crown royal bags was to do a cathedral window, but I think this will be easier. Definitely not a piece of cake but perhaps

  • The Vampire Quilter

    ooooo sounds scary, right? I call myself that because I actually enjoy staying up all night quilting. Of course, I'm only a weekend vampire quilter. Doing it during the week would pose some problems at work I am sure. I get into this "artist" zone and don't even think about going to bed. Before I know it it's 4:00 a.m. and makes

  • Re: Just wondering? What is the oldest UFO you have?

    The oldest of my projects is from the 1940's. I purchased the top on ebay and plan on quilting it someday they called it Rolling Stone pattern and it has the date 1942 pinned to it: Then my Granny gave me a quilt top to finish, she probably pieced it late 1970's early 1980's. I have finished two of her tops so far - one I kept, one I gave

  • Having fun with sewing storage

    When I begin a collection I tend to obsess about it. I am constantly searching for the new (old) thing. I browse ebay and go to estate sales and garage sales. I become immersed in the new object of desire. I am always checking out all kinds of places to find my new obssession. Hello, my name is Jenia and I am a collector of vintage sewing boxes. It's

  • Re: Buy patterns to save for later?

    Oh yes, buy them now. Just having them on hand will give you motivation to try something different and more difficult than you are used to. Also, how disappointed would you be if you tried to find them later and could not locate them. I have stockpiled quite a few cool patterns I know will take me years to attempt. But I am so looking forward to picking

  • Eye Candy for the Calorie Conscious Quilter

    AAAARRRG...didn't realize until now these all posted upside down, on the ipad they always look fine. When I come and look from work, it's all messed up. I will fix this asap, probably tomorrow (2-25-2014). I am fairly new to Las Cruces, and new to quilting. I don't have many local friends and I have yet to join any quilting group or guild

  • Re: Red and white chevron fabric

    I would love to purchase all 3 yards, if it hasn't already been sold. Do you take paypal? What service do you use for shipping?

  • Foiling for quilt label?

    Has anyone used foiling for their quilt label? I saw this at a local quilt show and thought it would be a great way to label quilts. You use a glue-type pen and can really sign your name and write other information, then you take a piece of foil and rub it over the hand-written message. The typical use for this stuff is t-shirt designs. The foil and

  • Quilter's Guild for shy people or beginners?

    I went to a local quilt show over the weekend. I didn't even know there would be one here in my home town until I drove past our convention center Saturday. Well, they were there Sunday as well, so I got the opportunity to go to my first quilt show! The show was put on by the local quilting guild another surprise to me. I didn't know we had
