Ok then. Guess I better get on the ball and figure this thing out! Seeing everybody else with their cute pages and pictures is inspiring! I'm a happy wife to Dan, and proud mom to Brady, Shelby, and Hannah. I also have 2 boston terriers, Oreo and Sami, who spend the days in my studio with me.
I've been quilting for about 14 years, and started designing about 5 years ago. I'm looking forward to taking part in this group!
Paula -- I'm making your beautiful Rocky Mountain Sampler Quilt. I purchased it from CT - however, I purchased the fabric for the ligher version (cream, yellow, aqua, gold). I have all the fabric and directions; I do not have a copy of the finished quilt. Do you? I would greatly appreciate a copy if you could send one to my email.
The challenge is out, lets see how many of us can join the wonderful new campaign called Stitching for Pink !!! Starts today until 30 October. Its gonna be so much fun with 10 projects to complete. Come on Embroiderers lets unite and join the fight against Breast Cancer !!!
Thanks for the compliment on my quilt block - I took the logo for Midwest Boston Terrier Rescue and simply incorporated it into a traditional quilt block ...it's one of 4 I submitted for Wisconsin Boston Terrier Rescue's annual quilt auction :-) In my 'free time" I also have space on American Boston Terrier Rescue's website and they sell my dog apparel -most of my work is custom because it's hard to find store-bought items that fit the boston properly - 20% of those profits are donated to help fund medical expenses of rescue pups coming in - busy hands are happy hands!
Paula, I want to commend you on the accuracy of the Southern Stars pattern. I had very little trouble with the pieces fitting correctly. OK, just a little, but that wasn't the fault of the pattern....maybe the one sewing. LOL
I enjoyed the first four, so I'm sure the rest will be just as fun.
I finally got to start a block yesterday (my husband and Mom (she is 94) are ill with this upper res. virus going around so I stayed home from work to care for them and they slept almost the whole day). I just wanted to thank you for the great directions on the block! I especially appreciate the directions on how to iron the seams as that is always a problem for me when I go to put the whole quilt together. I think these are the best instructions I've tried to follow ever and wanted you to know how much I appreciate you doing this! Thank you!
Oh I just love your Avatar! What a BEAUTIFUL bostie..which BT is shown Sami or Oreo?? You are so right Boston's are the best critters to snuggle with especially during times of sadness and cold winter nights...I also have ClaraBelle for whom the quilt is named...she lumbers around like a big ol bear and weighs in at a whopping 28 lbs...and Lucky Charms our little Foster Guy who has come through so much in the past 10 months just to live is currently being treated for heart worm so both of my men have "heart" problems -ack! Many thanks for the well wishes and correspondence.
Hi Paula I was just reading cat ladys comment and she was thanking you for the pressing directions .I use pins when im sewing the blocks together....Could you explain to me what she ment...Im a new quilter so I can use all the help I can get Thanks Barbara
Just wanted to say that I have now finished the first two blocks and have really appreciated your pressing directions on the pattern. When ever I am sewing and/or writing directions I try to press for ease of construction and you have done that wonderfully. I did not need to place a pin anywhere as I was sewing the blocks together. All right, I did have a pin in my mouth-just in case-but that does not count.
