Quilt Basting

Posted by Cat Lady--MO on June 26, 2016 at 1:02pm 7 Comments

Basting a quilt, either with thread or with pins, has never really been high on my favorite quilting activities.  Lately it has even become more of effort.

I have never been able to baste a quilt on the floor.  Injuries to both my knees, resulting from a car accident when I was in my 20s, has kept me from kneeling for any length of time for any reason.

I used to go into the church fellowship hall, set up some of the 8-foot long tables, push them together, layer my quilt…

Painting Finished!

Posted by Terri D. on June 26, 2016 at 12:55pm 6 Comments

I have finished the karate painting of my twin granddaughters.  All that's left to do is sign it, and spray sealer on it and then send it off in the mail.

Thanks everyone for all the wonderful comments as it progressed. I have started drafting the picture for doing it as a thread painting. Once I get it started, I'll post its progress.…

Small project leads to bigger one

Posted by Irene Gallway on June 25, 2016 at 11:29am 11 Comments

Yesterday I set out to cut scraps into different size squares, depending on the size of the scrap.  I hauled out my box of scraps and started sorting them in colors stacking them on my "double" bed. I had so many scraps that I ran out of space on the bed so decided to go to WM and buy another stack of those plastic drawers. I got two stacks (6) draws. Then the task was to make room in my sewing room closet for this extra set of drawers.  This was no small task hauling everything out of the…

We are half way to Christmas!
Better get those machines humming!

Machine Attachment

Posted by Pam/NY on June 22, 2016 at 5:09pm 8 Comments

Hubby and I went to pick up my machine from the Viking store. The gal that works there is a real sweetheart and enjoys her job. She was treating the machine like it was my baby. When we left the store, hubby was laughing at her calling it my kid. I actually felt like something was missing in the house for two weeks!

So, I went down and hid one of his bows for hunting. We were having dinner and he asked if I'd been downstairs. Why????

I just think something is missing but can't figure… Continue

mini rant

Posted by Prairie Quilter/NE on June 22, 2016 at 9:30am 13 Comments

Don't you just hate it when you KNOW right where you put something, but when you go to retrieve it, it isn't there?      

About a year ago, we had a large amount of hard rain in a short amount of time, which caused flash flooding.  While our house sat above the floodwaters, we had seepage in the basement.  This, in turn, resulted in major cleaning, purging, reorganizing, etc.  You would think that would be a good thing, right?  Except for one thing...

I CAN'T FIND ANYTHING!…
