Auditioning borders

Posted by Prairie Quilter/NE on March 27, 2015 at 1:47pm 4 Comments

I'm finishing up a graduation quilt for a niece.  It's been a fun project - no pattern.  Flying by the seat of my pants when quilting - especially when it comes to the math - is not my strong suit.  

Outside of the 4 main big block printed panels, all of the fabric has been from my stash, which is something I'm trying hard to stick do these days.  When I started, I "knew" exactly which fabric I was going to use on the last border, and amazingly enough, I had it in yardage.  (I tend to…

What happened to spring?

Posted by Janet/MO on March 27, 2015 at 7:01am 3 Comments

My husband, daughter, 2 grandsons & I drove from Mid-Missouri to Minneapolis yesterday to attend our oldest daughter's wedding tomorrow.  Almost immediately upon crossing the border from Iowa to MN, we found a lot of that horrible white stuff on the ground along with frigid temps and strong winds.  Oddly, the further north we drove in MN the less of that horrible white stuff we saw, but it is still very cold.  I forgot to bring my coat so we had to stop for me to buy another one.  Isn't…

Quilt Show Entry #2 . . . and variation

Posted by Carol Ann Hinton on March 24, 2015 at 1:52pm 13 Comments

This quilt I made in two variations.  I think the warmer autumn colors are prettier, but the winter colors are more striking.  I have entered "The Autumn Wind" (which did not photograph well) in the show.  The second quilt is called "A Walk in the City" because, to me, it resembled an arial view of city buildings and intersecting streets.  Which do you prefer?…

Spring Has Sprung!

Posted by Sue S. / OR on March 24, 2015 at 12:26pm 6 Comments

Happy Spring to All!  We are on spring break here in Oregon, at least the part I live in.  Instead of snow, we've been deluged with rain, but there are promises of nice (even sunny) weather at the end of the week.  I have this week off from work (school), I was busy over the weekend finishing up a quilt for my co-worker, Carol.  Carol was recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.  Three other co-workers and myself decided to make her a quilt (none of the others are…

Not in the Show, But . . .

Posted by Carol Ann Hinton on March 22, 2015 at 5:14pm 9 Comments

. . .I kinda wish I had taken the chance and entered it even though it was not finished when entries were due.  I made this one up from the memory of a block I had seen up on a design wall at the last retreat.  It was in purple and pink, with white, and somehow it attracted my attention.  I looked in my "stash" and came up with this version.

  I hate wasting fabric to fussy cut, but it seemed worth it to center the roses in the block.  It is called "Roses in the Midnight…

National Quilting Day--what are you doing?

Posted by Barbara Graham on March 21, 2015 at 11:12am 10 Comments

Happy National Quilting Day! I have walked the dogs and gone to the grocery store. Now the fun begins!

I am planning to work on the mystery quilt for the next book and start machine quilting a lap/wheelchair quilt and watch basketball--my team is Xavier--go Musketeers!

And put some stitches in my white on white hand quilting project. I try to do some every evening while DH is watching TV. The combination of NCAA basketball tournament and newly adopted dog is working against…
