Vacation and quilting

Posted on May 6, 2009 at 12:23pm 3 Comments

I wish I could quilt on vacation. My family and I (minus the hubby) just went on a 1 week vacation to New Orleans and Breaux Bridge, LA for good food, fun and crawfish!!! And, yet - here I was thinking about quilting the whole time!

Before we left I finished quilting the t-shirt quilt. I was in a "Do not disturb" mode for the whole weekend! It is so wonderful - I have only the binding left to do and am planning on knocking out the first part of… Continue

Quilting the t-shirt quilt

Posted on April 24, 2009 at 8:30am 0 Comments

I attempted to start quilting the t-shirt quilt last night and had some sewing machine drama. I have always used my sewing machine to do the quilting. However, this time, my sister convinced me to use my grandma's because it was in a cabinet. So, I did. I used the darning foot from my machine...seemed to be fine. I believe the problem lay in the act of feeding the quilt through, though! It was terribly awkward and just wouldn't not feed through… Continue

Hey Diddle Diddle

I FINALLY got around to taking a picture of my baby quilts I'm making. I have three friends having babies this spring/summer so I made them each one. Still need to quilt it, but the tops are done.

If you've never made a t-shirt quilt before...

...you should do it!!! It is such a great way to reach out into new areas of creativity. I'm kind of a perfectionist but I've never thought of myself as very creative. I was always (and, I guess, still am) a "buy a pattern and coordinating fabric kind of person." However, my sister asked me to make a t-shirt quilt for her out of all her old high school and college t-shirts that she doesn't wear. She couldn't bear to throw them away, but doesn't wear them anymore. (We clean her closet at least… Continue

Thanks for the T-shirt Quilt instructions. I just printed them, I can't wait to get started, but it will have to wait until I finish my girlfriend's casserole dish holder I am making for her Birthday, which is in less then a week. Thanks again, Happy Quilting!!!

I live in Duluth, MN. We a few shops around here. My favorite shops are up the North shore. It is a beautiful drive up the shores of lake superior. I go 2 times a year for a retreat it is a block from the quilt store trouble trouble. But at least it is easy to hide the fabric to bring home.

I don't get to SF but once in a great while and I had read a wonderful article in one of the quilting magazines exactly about organizing scraps. I had a friend help me clean my sewing room while I was on vacation. It looked great but everything was a jumble in boxes. Now I am putting fat squares together by color, and flannels together and smaller pieces are also getting organized as suggested in the magazine. Unfortunately, many were crumbled and I have to rewash and iron. I shall be done soon as I am on the last leg. I love the classes at Heirloom Creations. Their new place is great. Hope you enjoy the class. Maybe one day in the future we will be in the same class. Yolanda

You want to hear something funny. About 4 years ago I had had all I could take on my husbands view on my laundry method. He griped for 25+ years. I told him since he thinks HIS method is so much better than mind, Laundry is now his new job. YOU SHOULD SEE OUR LAUNDRY ROOM. TONADO ALLEY. (of cource I do my own and he has no clue ) I've been know to go out and buy new towels rather than put a load of towels in. We've gone from one sheet of really nice sheets to 5. He couldn't figure out what was charged on his debit card and when I told him, HE washed sheets. It's kinda funny. Hard not to go into the laundry room and take over, but not a chance. I guess that's one reason your blog hit a funny cord with me. OH, guess what....dishes are NOW one of his new jobs. I cook he cleans. Dirty dishes in the sink, NO dinner. So far so good. Guys! Can't live with them and can't shoot them. (kidding--been married 33 years and he's a keeper...at least most of the time)
