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.

Thank you, Laura!  I have fun no matter what I am sewing! :D 

Happy New Year to you and your family!

Hey Laura,

You're welcome! I thought it was a pretty nifty project and easy too. I used a commercial bias tape rather than making my own which saved time and I found if I took the cover off a couple of times while I was pulling up the elastic, the gathers were easier to distribute.

Have fun making yours! :-D

Hi, Laura!  You did an awesome job on your ironing board cover.  I have been looking for one and was DELIGHTED to see you had posted this!

Thank you for sharing with us!

Hey, I just had to share my latest project. I couldn't resist Connecting Threads Hello Sunshine Collection and what better project for the cute Laundry Day print than an ironing board cover!? 

This project was very fast and easy and Eva at Sew Much Good put together a FANTASTIC FREE tutorial on how to do it. Here is the link to her blog: http://sewmuchgood.blogspot.com/2012/05/iron-board-cover-fast-and-e...

Love the baby ball.  I worked at a nursing home in the 70's and the residents use to make these and sell them in the gift shop.  They were really neat. And toddlers could really hold on to them.  Great for eye to hand coordination. I have a daughter due in may. I'll have to make her one,  Good thing to do while husband switches tv shows 100 times at night. lol

It was a lot easier then it looks. You construct and stuff the wedge shaped "pods" separately and then you hand sew them together with a strong thread to form the ball. Very satisfying! =~)

Laura: That baby ball is adorable.  Was it a pain to make, because it sure looks like it was.
