Well done Barbara!  Sorry I haven't written...again!  Each time is a test to see if their software will let me in☹️

Comment by handstitcher/IL yesterday

Very nice, Barbara! Your borders help draw the attention inwards towards your blocks. Nicely done! 

Comment by Janet/MO on Wednesday

Very lovely projects Barbara.  I know what you mean about our hands not working like they used to.  Very frustrating to say the least!

Comment by Barbara Dieckmann on Wednesday

I also looked up the Stonefield quilt.  Looks like a lot of interesting little blocks to make.  Will be lovely.  Time has flown with all thedays seeming more or less the same.  Been working on getting my stash in better sahpe to actually find stuff, and of course working on projects, mostly pieced with minor touches of applique in borders.  Experimenting with alternatives to needle turn as my hands just do not have enough control anymore for it to look as I think it should. Pics are of the top with my last set of needle turned blocks created before my hands got as bad.  I showed earlier, but it now has all the borders I'm content with adding.  2nd pic is of a  meant to get ravelled Drunkards Path quilt that I added meant to ravel floral vine border.  Still need to trim the furrist bits away, but I'm enjoying the effect.

I looked up the Stonefield quilt, Annette. Looks quite challenging. Definitely not for the faint of heart, but looks lovely. 

Did a little appliqué this week for an unusual project. I rescued a vintage (1920s?) Trip around the World block. It was getting a little wonky by the time the quilter sewed on the final triangles to make it square and the bias edges weren’t helping. So I removed the triangles and appliquéd the hand pieced blocked to a solid background. The inside is quilted quickly, so I just need to quilt a border.

Sounds like a beautiful quilt Annette.

Hi All:

Gosh!  How did we get to mid-September already?  Being locked down for a while gave me time to re-evaluate WIPs, start AND finish some new projects, and clear the decks for winter 2020/21, which I am hoping will freeze those Covid 19 virus's and let us back to normal routines.  I don't know what's going to happen to the QWU groups, but I sincerely hope they will continue.  

During this stay-at-home time, I started the Stonefield quilt, so a lot of applique, some hand piecing and a lot of EPP for the borders.  Hopefully, after I finish a quilt for one of our grandsons, I can get back to it.  In the meantime, glad to see some of you returning.  Happy Autumn!

I am a long time member of "Quilting With Us" (QWU). I used to give virtual workshops here. Like many others, I have ventured out as QWU became more quiet.

We are getting the warning that QWU is at risk of being disabled. I fear this is a sign that QWU will one day be no more.

It has become like family here and the thought of losing the friendships we have developed has giving me a sad heart. Like many dark clouds, there is a silver lining. When I ventured out, I created a quilters social network, much like QWU. I never mentioned it, for it was a conflict of interest. However, in this dark hour, it is time to let others know there is an alternative. It does not have to end here.

I would be honored for QWU members to join "Pattern Pastiche". If needed, we are more than happy to create a group for your new home.

Mary, it seems like a lot of groups that used to be very active on QWU are basically defunct.  Makes me wonder what has happened to some of the members who posted quite regularly.

I've certainly missed all you ladies and those in my other groups. I went looking for these pages several months ago and couldn't find them. Figured CT removed them. Now today I get a notice from another group that someone has posted. Really think we should get back to posting since most of us are quarantined!
