About Me
Well I'm new at this quilting stuff, but I'm finding that I'm loving every moment of it. I still have a lot to learn. I have made some baby blankets for friend. I still need to get up the faith that I can machine or hand quilt (I'm scared that I will make a mess of it). I'm also looking to make up a website but I don't have a glue on how to do it. Any Ideas out there. I'm also a mother to a 31year old daughter and to 11 year old son and a grandmother to a 2 year old girl. I'm from Minnesota but move here to Cleveland Ohio 3 years ago when I first got married for the first time. I'm ready to move back home.
Hobbies and Interests

I looking for a pattern that one of you quilters did on EQ6. You post it on here about 2 or 3 months. I think it was a teddy bear. I maybe wrong about it. But you post it so the we could download it on EG6. I lost the pattern some where. Please help me if you can. I remeber that this person was in school (College some where). Thank you for your help.
It's also a great day here in Cleveland OH .

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I have some great plans for today. It's snowing here in Cleveland Oh. So I'm going to wash my fabric for my girls friend grand daughters quilts. I just have the backing to do. I did my backing on the EQ6 so I have a good idea what to do. I have my candy real too. Have a Great Day!

DJ: Thanks for the comment. I do not have a pattern for the post it note covers but will post the dimentions for you. When you see how easy it is you'll laugh and think, "why didn't I think about doing this sooner".

Thx for the sweet comment!
An idea for you:
Be brave and try machine quilting on a small project.
The first little quilt I m-qtd on was 17"x 9"....yes, a narrow quilt with 8 blocks.
Of course, you can do the same with a little quilt and hand quilt. Later, make the leap to bigger quilts!
Hint: Do a search on youtube...you'd be amazed what folks share on both forms of quilting there...let's just say that a 5 year old machine quilting a block inspired me tremendously last summer! Good Luck!

Thanks and good luck on your quilts. Another fun quilt for a baby is a double 4-patch. It is easy but looks difficult -especially when set on point- to others.

Hi Darcy! There are pretty good, and varied, instructions online for making fabric postcards. Also some books out there...what I did for the postcards I pictured was to cut some background fabric, leftover batting, and a piece of double-sided fusible webbing into 4"x6" rectangles. Then I first fused the webbing to the wrong side of the fabric, then peeled the backing and fused that to the batting. Then I sewed on different embellishments, with a zigzag or decorative stitch. Or in the case of the buttons, by hand. After my sewing was finished, I backed the whole thing with a piece of white cardstock-weight paper and zigged and zagged around the edge. You can actually mail the postcards if you put on a regular first class stamp, and ask them to hand cancel it at the post office. You can also use Timtex as the middle layer instead of batting, I just happened to use batting this time as I wanted to use up scraps. It is fun! For some really beautiful postcards see Gwen's page; her comments are on my blog comments list. Have fun! Libby

Darcy, I do like the EQ6, it is more user friendly, there is alot about it to learn, I am still learning and have had it over a year. The books go into detail
and it is a good size book. If you do the practice they have you do it is easier. I like the idea of designing the quilts for yourself.
Just practice on the machine quilting, make a small piece and if you mess up give it to a friend for their dog.Or maybe a doll quilt for your granddaughter. My dogs have 3 or 4 quilts that I practiced on. They don't care if I messed up.
Just don't give up and give it a try.

Hi Darcy - All of our fabric that we use for the charity quilts is donated by the women in our guild from fabric that they have and decided not to use otherwise or perhaps don't like any more or just want to give for a charity quilt. Sometimes we will have someone who has a family member die that did quilts or sewing and they will contact our LQS and then donate the fabric for us to use. There are a number of patterns on the web available for charity quilts but really any pattern can be used. If you are specifically wanting to do quilts for St Jude's Hospital check if you have a Hancock's Fabric Store in your area; I have seen things in their ads about St Jude's quilts so perhaps they could provide some answers to your questions. Whatever charity you decide to donate to it is a worthwhile project. Project Linus is popular in many areas as well doing children's quilts, and you can usually learn about that through LQS or searching the web for local groups. Good luck

Have you been able to find what you're looking for?

Try typing "fabric paper dolls" into whatever browser or search engine you have - I just typed it in and alot of different stuff came up - maybe you would recognize it if you saw it.

Hi Darcy Jo,
Welcome to our website! As for using batting with flannel, I always do, but you can get away with using a realy thin batting if you like. It depends on how fluffy you want your quilt to be. I guess it also depends on whether you want a blanket, or a quilt. It's all about doing whatever you like best!

Good Luck!

Kristin
