Since it has been so hot here in the valley this past week or so, and I really didn't want to have a steam bath in my sewing room, I have decided to take advantage of that time and go through some…Continue

How important is it to us that we have room to move around and work.  Do you like a large room with plenty of space for your machines, fabric and other accessories but have a small area? Or do you…Continue

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.

Hi has anyone an idea what I could make with a selection of quilted blocks, none of them match,  but don't want to bin them.

Link to poll: Permalink: http://16300751.polldaddy.com/s/lovely-ugly-challenge-polka….

I have had a few issues brought to my attention regarding the polling process. My apologies and I have fixed them. If you have any other issues, please let me know.

1. Link to photo has been fixed. Use this link:https://cozyquilts.wordpress.com/. It is the first post on the page as it is fixed and will stay that way until the poll closes.
2. Voting. You are allowed to vote multiple times, so if you were confused by the issues, please try again.
3. Drop down choices. That has been fixed. They are all now listed and you can choose from there. Somehow it got screwed up and was giving radio buttons and I missed that. My apologies for the mess. 
4. Categories. There are 3 categories, self-explanatory. Most Creative, Most Original and Best Camouflaged. Or you can choose none of the above if you wish.

Thank you again for letting me know about these problems. I am trying to fix what I can and did not know about these until it was mentioned and I thank you for that. Have fun voting!

Hi.  I am not able to keep up with this group because of health issues.  If anyone wants to start it up again, please go ahead with my blessings.  Thank you for understanding.

Hi all, is this group still going, no posts for a while.

Comment by Donna Coppin on December 2, 2016 at 9:21am

Hi Everyone.  My apologies!  I have been fairly busy with getting a FB group going this past year and have been focusing on that.  I would love to get this group going again now that I am retired and have a "little" spare time on my hands.  

Question, shall we keep this same format or should we try something different, like swapping fabric or blocks?  Let me know what you think and possibly next year we can start.  

Need to finish quilting a 4 year old top that is due tomorrow.  Nothing like procrastination to get you moving!  Chat more later.

Comment by Marianne on December 2, 2016 at 12:45am
