About Me
I live in a small town in Ohio and we just celebrated our 47th wedding anniversary. We have 2 adult children and one granddaughter who's my pride and joy. I've been quilting for just about 15 years. I'm still learning (so don't look too close) but I really enjoy trying new techniques. In 2011, I was fortunate and honored to have been chosen as a member of Quiltmaker Magazine's Scrap Squad. It was quite an adventure; I learned a lot and had lots of fun!
Hobbies and Interests

A little excited - my best year yet exhibiting at our county fair; 9 ribbons -- 6 blue, 3 red.  Such fun to see your work arranged so nicely for folks to enjoy.  If you have never entered, give it a try!

Just saw this on Facebook.  I know we all do this all the time without a second thought but I guess it's a REALLY bad idea!

Whimsical Welcome pattern

Posted on March 28, 2014 at 12:00pm 35 Comments

OK, I can make enough errors in quilting on my own without help.

I bought Fons & Porter's Quilting Celebration fall 2013 issue because I fell in love with the Whimsical Welcome banner pattern on the front cover. Checked that all the pattern pieces were full size.  Traced all the pattern pieces onto fusible; ironed them onto carefully chosen fabrics and cut them out.  Triple checked the size for the background fabric and cut into my last piece of perfect "sky fabric" and a…

An inspirational day brightener

I posted this on one of the groups and was asked to put it on the main page.  I read it some time ago and found it again today on another site.

If you need a morale booster, this is for all the moms and grandmas out there.

Good morning, a big thankyou for the welcome to the group.

I live in North Yorkshire England UK. Retired child psychologist,  and manager of a children's charity.  Have had a very busy life, but, now have time to enjoy my hobby, that lay dormant for many years. We have 2 grown boys who have 2 children each, all live within 5 miles from us. I am a member of Soroptimist International , terrified of cats love dogs and now give time in our local prison.

Thank you for letting me join your group.  I am retired and I have 14 grandchildren I am always making something for one of them.  Also made quilts for my great nephews - 2 of them.  3 great nieces...  I have a few unfinished projects.

Hello Carol.... Is it hand pieced the traditional way or is it English Paper Pieced. I know about the amount of time it takes for hand work. I am currently working on a scrappy hexie quilt. I have been working on it for a little over 2 years now and it still is not finished. I estimate about another year and a half  or so before it will be done and on out bed. But I have always enjoyed hand work...piecing and quilting. I find both to be very relaxing.

Carol,Thanks for the address.  you are a life saver.

Carol...No, I didn't know that she fell, as I'm not on Facebook. I think I'll look into e-mailing her friend in CA. Maybe she'll know something. They corresponded a lot.

I've been quilting since May, '06, and haven't ventured into it as much as I could have. I have made many quilts, 3 king, several queens and lots of lap sizes. I really enjoy reading the blogs on QWU, but haven't blogged since 2012. Guess that means I'm lazy.

If I learn anything, I'll post on here for you.

Thank you for letting me know.

Hugs,

Sharon

Hello Carol...I have been doing good. I agree whole heartedly about misjudging time. But even though you changed some motifs they still look great. I am glad that you got them finished in time. Not been on much recently, but I plan to change that. I have been busy with a major hand piecing project. I got hooked on EPP and I absolutely love it.

Oh, before I forget.....there is a New Philadelphia only about 35 miles from us here in Canton, IL. But it's not much more than a dip in the road. Ha,ha.   And, yes, I have been through Canton, Ohio and Canton, MO.

Sending my Christmas wishes to you and your family as well. It certainly is a joy for me to have found this group of crafty women.  We have so much fun. And I'm looking forward to lots more fun in the new year!
