No good deed goes unpunished.....

Posted by Terry F on April 22, 2014 at 3:45pm 6 Comments

Hope everyone's Easter was good.  I enjoyed it very much with family and friends, and the weather was perfect!  I'm on school/work break this week, trying to "catch up"  (I know, hysterical, aren't I?) on some sewing.  I'm especially trying to use up fabric that I already have.  Made a pair of PJs for Piper that she won't wear because they're "too loose, Gramma!".  I like loose PJs, Piper likes hers tight!  Who knew?  I'll see if the little girl down the street likes them.…


Gray is the new neutral!

WOW! After looking at the same background for a number of years here at QWU, the new gray sure is different.

But I like it.  I am using more gray as a neutral in my quilting also.

Dont just dot your I's.....make sure you thread them!

Hi all!  Beautiful day here in IN as was yesterday!  FINALLY spring has sprung!  I hope spring has found it's way to you!

After wasting 2 hours on a 1/2 a row of a customer quilt it is rather important to hit EVERY eye when threading your machine.  *rolls my eyes*.  Mind you I've been doing this almost 8 years and I'm well aware that checking your thread path is the first place you look when you are having tension issues.  Couldn't possibly be ME dang it, all that happened was a…

Jenni, our fabulous fabric designer, has left for New York City. Sad for us, exciting for her!

As a going away gift I wanted to make her a needle book because she said she could use one. Fortunately, I saw a…


High Fiber—New Beginnings

Posted by Peggy Stuart on April 21, 2014 at 8:30am 14 Comments

This week has been crazy! Besides trips to eye doctor, dentist and Apple store for a new iPad, I made a trip to Shepherd's Bush and Needlepoint Joint in Ogden with friends from Common Threads. 

Shepherd's Bush has an entry way full of projects. …


A Pause in the Action

Posted by Joanne Grimes on April 20, 2014 at 8:22pm 1 Comment

Here's how far I got with Raindrop Kaleidoscope. Page up and down to see more. 

Well this is about as far as I can go for now. I need to keep the living room clear for guests coming in a week or two and I know this project will take longer than that. I set up sewing in the living room on the floor under the fireplace (no longer used ever). It doesn't take up much…


Fabric Search

Posted by Lorie Black on April 20, 2014 at 6:26pm 2 Comments

Hey, All!  I am in need of several yards of a Connecting Threads fabric from 2012 to complete a project.  It is the yellow/gold "Briar Patch" fabric from the "Rose Manor" collection.  I do not need one continuous piece, smaller pieces will be fine.  If you have any in your stash and are willing to part with it, I will buy it from you.  Thanks in advance for looking!   Lorie…
