About Me
I live in a small town in Ohio and we just celebrated our 44th wedding anniversary. We have 2 adult children and one granddaughter who's my pride and joy. I've been quilting for just about 12 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!

Whimsical Welcome pattern

Posted on March 28, 2014 at 12:00pm 34 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.

Adding pictures

Posted on April 9, 2013 at 2:00pm 7 Comments

Anyone else have this problem?

I can add pictures to my page and I can add a picture to my comments in my groups.  But I can't add a picture to individual messages or to a blog post on the main page or to a comment on a main page post.  I use Internet Explorer and when I try it says that the website has experienced a problem and IE needs to shut down.  Then it does and reopens the page but without my typed comment.  Suggestions…

Can anyone help?

I've started a mystery quilt using some neutral fabric I bought at CT quite some time ago on clearance -- don't even know what the collection was nor the name of the fabric.  It is a white background with beige basket weave pattern.  I need about 1/4 yard more or I'll have to make a substitution -- and since it's a mystery I don't know where would be a good place to substitute!  My picture's not good but if anyone would be willing to sell a quarter yard or so, I'd be thrilled!  Thanks!…

Quilt barn block

Posted on February 20, 2012 at 7:37am 8 Comments

Help please, ladies.

Some time ago - okay quite a long time ago - the Golden Thimble website had a free BOM of Quilt barns.  The pattern for the barn was the same on each block but there was an opening to insert a quilt block (as rural barns are often decorated).  The quilt consisted of 9 blocks with 9 different 4-1/2" inserts.  I have finished 8 blocks and in going through my UFO's I found them and thought this would be an easy quilt to finish up.

However.....I have misplaced…

Thank you for the encouraging words, Carol. I need to "neaten" up my points and seams and the mystery quilt has helped a lot.

You have some lovely work in your albums too. It is really nice to find people with similar hobbies and passions.

Hello Carol...Thank you for the compliment on my quilt top. Even though I did all the cutting and kitting the BOM blocks it was still a mystery as to how my employer would bring it all together. She changed the original layout that she showed me at the beginning of the year.

That is an honor to be named to the Scrap Squad!  You do very nice work!  I love the bright colors on the kids' projects.  Very nice to meet you!  Let's stay in touch!

Hi Carol, thanks for the compliments on "1941" - it was fun and frustrating to make at the same time. I had to find pictures of the ballparks from that year...in color. Then we saw a video called "When it was a Game" using home movies from the players and there was Yankee Stadium and Fenway park. Lucky we could tape it and stop motion so I could take pics to do the colors. I'm really happy with the results. Thanks again. Barb

Thank you for your comment on Angels in the Sky. I took time to look at all your work. There are a lot that speak to me so I will be perusing your gallery in more detail for inspiration.

Thank you for you kind comments on my recent quilt postings.  I have only been quilting for about 10 years now and do mostly miniature work, though I have made two large quilts for the Wounded Warriors.  I have a great bunch of quilting friends that give me their scraps because what they think is to small to work with is really just right.

Thank you for the nice comment on my wall hanging . The pattern was originally a table runner.

Thank you for the kind words on my quilt. I put the quilt pattern into my cross stitch program, then took the floss colors that I had used to the fabric store and picked fabrics based on how well they matched the floss.

Thank you Carol. I got some turkey breast and pierogies and broccoli to steam for Indy and me. We aren't going any where and I'm not expecting anyone.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

Actually I'm fighting the worse fibro flareup I've ever had. I can barely move and I'm sleeping a great deal of the time. Afraid I won't get Christmas presents done in time for Christmas this year. I spend my time up for about an house then back to bed. Indy has been such a good boy through all of this. I hope it doesn't last much longer. Have a Happy Thanksgiving.
