  • Wow -- It's been a while

    I guess I forgot to blog. I've been busy. I'm not sure I got pictures of every thing, but here's a sample. I made a scrappy back for a quilt out of this and that: Here's what it looked like before being quilted: Here's the front, after being quilted: (as much as I really wanted to do some serious free motion work, the quilt wouldn't

  • Because I Have to Sew

    I've been trying my hand at free motion quilting. And my hand sucks at it. So I sent away for some sewing aids (a Sew Easy silicone pad) and have been practicing with a pencil and paper: This is so much better than what I've been doing on practice quilt sandwiches. But! Several days of this and not only was my ego in the toilet, but my sewing

  • Another UFO "F'ed"

    I had this one laid out on my working table for almost a week, trying to come up with a quilting method other than my usual straight line thing. Then it occurred to me that, as long as it was taking up my table, I wasn't getting anything else done and, since I really didn't like it anyway, why not just finish it? So I did some straight line

  • Re: Did You Work on a Quilt Today? #9

    Thank you. I'm getting tired of straight line quilting -- either in the ditch or just away from the seam. So I'm determined that this table runner is staying right where it is until I come up with an idea -- which mean nothing new for me until I do because it's using up my sewing table space!

    Does this count as working on a quilt? I've had this table runner pin basted on my table for about a week. I look at it daily and still can't come up with a quilting pattern I like.

  • Re: Printing out quilt patterns from digital magazines

    I'm on a Mac, so this might not work for you. I click on the link for the digital magazine and it comes up in a window. Then I do an "Apple-P" (I think that's an "Alt-P" on a PC) to print the page and, when the options for printing come up, instead of printing on paper, I print it as a pdf onto my desktop. Then I can go to

  • "What Goes Up" Quilt

    A couple of years ago -- right about the time I was starting to quilt -- my daughter found a picture in a magazine and asked if I could please make this for her. I tracked the pattern down, looked at it long and hard, and then told her, "No." It was way beyond my skill. But then the stubborn, what-ever-you-can-do-I-can-do-better side of me

  • Re: CAN'T GET THE MATERIAL STRAIGHT AND CUT STRAIGHT WHEN BEGINNING A QUILT

    I live out in the middle of nowhere, Colorado, and we recently formed a quilting group. It's mostly about one very generous quilter who is helping a score of would-be quilters. So if it can happen here, it can happen anywhere. Just ask around. Your local fabric/quilting store will help you organize as well. Take advantage of classes wherever and

  • One More UFO -- Still "U"

    A while back, I bought a sort of charm pack (of 6" squares, not 5") of pastels which I eventually sewed into half square triangles and then into eight placemats. I didn't like them, so they went into a drawer. I eventually bought some super cheap flannel (on sale, probably because no on in her right mind would ever use it) for backing
