Pop In and Say Hi!

Hello all,

 

It's been a while since I posted here; I've been working on my personal blog, Sun Naturals and Gifts...The Quilty Side  I am having a little giveaway there, please stop in and say hi!

 

I am also behind on posting pictures here so I will get on that too.  I have a couple of projects lined up with CT fabric.  Love the stuff!  I've got two orders on the way…

A Little Short, Could Someone Help Me?

Posted on November 22, 2009 at 2:38pm 4 Comments

I am finally almost done with my Southern Stars quilt! I just have the binding left. I have decided not to do the scrappy binding, but would like to use the same fabric I bordered it with, however I am a little short on yardage.



Would someone out there have a half yard of CT# 1814 Crescent Moons-Lt. Indigo from the Irresistable Indigo 3 collection they would be willing to sell? CT no longer carries it. There is a picture of it on my page.



It is a Christmas present I hope… Continue

Southern Stars Block of the Month Top Done!

Posted on September 14, 2009 at 7:57pm 10 Comments

A couple of months behind, but here is my Southern Stars Block of the Month Top completed with the CT Irresistable Indigo 3 fabrics. I want this to be an extra warm quilt for my Father-in-law for Christmas; I plan to back it in Flannel. Any suggestions for an extra warm bat? Wool? Insul-Bright? I will be machine quilting this in the interest of time, however, I really enjoyed this process and plan to make another for me with different colors and will… Continue

Organic Fabric Help!

Posted on August 4, 2009 at 7:35pm 3 Comments

Hi everyone,



I have a friend who's baby is due in October. She is very "green" and I would love to make an organic cotton baby blanket for her.



I cannot seem to find affordable woven organic cotton. However I have found some organic jersey knit cotton.



Could anyone give me advice as to working with jersey knit for a quilt? I am concerned about the "stretch factor" during piecing. It would be a simple block or square in square design. Nothing fancy. Could I quilt… Continue

A Question for you Hand Quilters

Posted on February 8, 2009 at 4:07pm 9 Comments

Hi Everyone,



To all you hand quilters out there, I was wondering what needle size/brand you like; your favorite thread and wax or no wax?



I mostly do machine work but I would like to be able to hand quilt well. I have a practice piece, a little wholecloth that came pre-marked with a design. I am trying to master the rocking stitch. I can't seem to get comfortable with it, I've been using betweens size 12; one really short and one that seems too tall.



I thought… Continue

I haven't posted my dresden quilt yet, need to finish the borders.  I really thought it would be harder, but I got it done in record time, though I didn't hand stitch them down on the back fabric, had a different technique for that.  I made it for my senior daughter's german teacher, thought the dresden plate would be perfect for her!

The monkey quilt came from Quilting for Baby edited by Jeanne Stauffer & Sandra L. Hatch. ( I think the book is on sale right now at Conn. Threads for about $11 and there are LOTS of cute patterns in it.) I made the monkey quilt for a friend's grandson whose nursery is all shades of green with a monkey theme. Thanks

I just "happened" to end up at a fabric store today while out doing errands and I bought some yardage of a brown and teal collection.......and it's all your fault! I wouldn't even have known I needed more brown if it wouldn't have been for your cocoa quilt. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

I like JP Coats hand quilting thread. It's 100% cotton and has a good finish on it. That helps to stabilize the thread when you thread the needle. Also it doesn't fray as much. My favorite batting is wool. It's like quilting though hot butter, and very light.

Love your Irish Chain. Great color choices. I like to use a very thin polyster batt to hand quilt or wool. They are both are easy to hand quilt thru. As for thread I like Coats and Clark Cotton or Guttermans. I really like Colonial big eye between size 11. I just ordered some Jeanna kimball needles and Roxanne's that I hear alot of people rave about. I think it depends on your style of quilting on what needle will be your favorite.

Hi Lisa, I just wanted to let you know that I just received your package in the mail. Thank you sew much, excellent choice of color and I will put a little of you into my Christmas quilt for 2010. The ornament is very pretty, but you know you shouldn't have. I love it anyway, and am going to stretch a paperclip to hold it on my tree right now.

Hey Girl your quilt looks real good. I just know your loved one is going to enjoy it.
The little bags are really easy to do and quick--I enlarged the pattern so I could give the little girls a tote bag for Christmas. They everyone have enjoyed them from our party on Sat. past. They are made from a free pattern --www.modabakeshop.com -- they are under "gifts and are called Charmed gift bags. Have fun and have a very "Merry Christmas" and a "Happy New Year".
