Latest Quilt top

Posted on May 25, 2013 at 2:43pm 6 Comments


Latest pieced quilt top.  Now the decision time is upon me.  What to quilt.  I am thinking a something in the middle, a border, and just stitch around the stripes.  Any suggestions?

New Quilt top

I need to decide how to quilt this new quilt top.  Should I just outline and put quilted borders on it?  Or should I outline, fill in the blank areas with designs and quilting, and quilted borders?  Any suggestions?  Thanks

Happy Mother's Day!

Free motion quilting

Posted on May 6, 2013 at 11:54am 28 Comments

Please share any experiences with free motion quilting.  I am new to this style.  I have been practicing and so far like it.  I need more practice and I am finding that practice seems to be the key.  Are there any good books or videos which will give me ideals?    Thanks

Hello Anna!  Yes it has been awhile.  Mitzie is still with us although she is approaching 20 years old!

I have no experience with either disappearing 9-patch, or disappearing hourglass blocks.  I have seen them; even watching a demo for hourglass one some time ago.  I have made the disappearing 4-patch block into a king-sized quilt out of a huge number of blue, brown & neutral fabrics in my stash.  It came out well.  Most helpful item to me was the cutting board that rotates like a "lazy Susan", since you need to cut from all directions without moving the block, or removing the cut strips.

Yes, we keep getting it too!  This is so nice after the extreme drought of the last four years.

I know what you mean about wearing out cars! my husband drove to Dobbins for years then they moved his unit to warner robins. He drove there for 5 years before he retired. I dont understand our government either...makes me sad sometimes.

Hi Anna!  Sorry-I haven't checked my page in a long time-just usually check MEB:)  I graduated from Heritage HIgh School in 1982.  Both of my children graduated from Salem.  It has gotten big and busy and has changed a lot but our friends are here.  My hubby and I both work in Atlanta and we don't want to live there, so we will be here for a while:)

Hi Anna,  I am in PCB so about 2 hours from Pensacola. We go to the Navy Museum there occasionally.  I just bought a new machine and am learning as well.  I have not practiced much yet .  I am traveling right now but will be back early July.

Tortie's are the best cats!  Mitzie will be 17 years old in June, and she still rolls around on the floor in front of the fireplace, chasing her tail in the mornings.  They are also "talkers", making a variety of interesting sounds.  My son brought her home from his piano lesson when he was 10; he had his music under one arm and this bedraggled kitten under the other.  She's been here ever since.

I'm not overly fond of paper piecing because I just HATE having to tear off all the paper bits after you sew the blocks together!  It does force you to make very straight seams, however, and helps keep the bias edges of the fabric from stretching.  The method is good for making very sharp points, such as a Mariner's Compass block.
