I have been pretty busy this year making quilts for cash, and quilting other quilter's quilts. I have made several quilts for family and friends as well. I still have quilts to make for 2 more of my three sons(I know...it sounds like an old sitcom), but I already have a good start with most of the blocks already made. I just need to get them put together and quilted.

My DH and I went to a quilt show a few weeks ago. There were a lot of beautiful antique quilts that I enjoyed looking at. And guess what! They were not all perfect. There were mistakes and it made me feel so much better. I don't have to achieve perfection when I quilt. Who knew?
One of the booth's had cutting forms that mystified me. Somehow they held onto the fabric and could be moved without the fabric falling off. Pieces could be cut perfectly. The cutting table was hydraulic and…Continue
