About Me
My husband and I live in the peace of the Catskill Mountains overlooking the Willowemoc River. I have two grown daughters and 4 grandchildren. My mom, 81, lives with us along with her cat, our 3 dogs and 2 cats. When I'm not working, I quilt out on the deck in the summer, and in the winter, I quilt by the fire. I have sewn for over 40 years, even had a shop and reconstucted and designed wedding gowns. I like doing needlepoint, embroidery and counted cross stich, however, quilting has become my passion.

Cathedral Windows Help!

Posted on July 31, 2009 at 9:23am 4 Comments

A while ago someone had a picture tutorial on how to do cathedral windows with 3 fabrics by machine. I can't find it. They had posted on their page with pictures and I thought I would try it, but, now I can't remember who it was, can anybody help?

Pixie, your mini fan quilt is amazing! What craftsmanship! I can appreciate the time you've invested into this project. It is such a neat heirloom and the hummingbird was a nice tribute to your mom.

Both of the kids are off to college, so I am hoping to find more time to work on quilt projects. This morning I'm doing some housework and laundry, but I took a quick break to check in here and am so glad I did!

Happy quilting!

Hi Pixie,
Thanks for the compliment on my Hawaiian quilt. I sure enjoyed making that one. I started a carolina lily, but I hate piecing. Can't wait to get to the quilting. Your birds of a feather is really a unique quilt. Love the birds your using as the quilting motif. I am also working on a baltimore album, I have been having to work more hours at work so there isn't a whole lot of time to quilt.

Hello Pixie,
Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the passing of your mother. I am sure there are lots of happy memories you have of her and these will keep her live forever in your heart. As you quilt, you'd probably feel her presence, watching over you. Peace and prayers - Aida

Hi, Pixie--I hope your mother is doing better soon. The quilt show you went to sounds great. I'm looking forward to the local quilt show here--it is during the month long St. Patrick's festival. It is inspiring to see what others are doing--that's why I love this site so much. have a great day.

Pixie,
Thanks so much for your kind words. For now, I really enjoy the small projects! I find doing the small projects like my amish garden very rewarding.

Whew! That got a little long-winded didn't it? (Sorry. I'm here by myself today. Well, me and the livestock, but they don't make for very good conversationalists.)

Hi Pixie, sounds like a great weekend and a great place to set up your frame and quilt.

I started preparing the pieces for a hand appliqued quilt yesterday. I'd forgotten how long the prep work takes. I keep telling myself it will be worth it to have a take-along project ready to go.

I'm also putting the binding on a quilt. Just bought the Grace Company Z44 hand quilt frame to try my hand at quilting in a frame (no pun intended). :0) I usually just use a lap frame, but I have a hard time finding people to help me baste a quilt in my old-fashioned quilt frame made up of long boards and c-clamps. It takes at least 3 people to "turn" the quilt when I've reached as far as I can reach. Also I really don't have a place to set it up for any length of time if I am basting one by myself. With the new frame, I can either quilt right in the frame or baste it for my lap frame without help. I realize that part of quilting is the gathering of other quilters around the frame, but they are few and far between out here so I'm going to give this a try. It need a stain and finish put on it before I can use it and I'm chomping at the bit to get it finished! My son will help with that part of it. I have a quilt ready to be quilted and another that needs marked for quilting. Both either need basted or else put in the frame. That's where I'm at on quilting projects.
I am headed to a conference with a friend in Laramie this weekend and hope to hit a quilt shop or two if we have time. I'm looking for 30's prints. (I was going to say I "need" 30's prints, but we all know how that is...) Then I'll meet my daughter as she returns from her 2 wk study abroad trip. I'll be glad to hear all about her trip on the drive home. However it will be the first time I've missed our Memorial Day services in years. My dad is a Korean War veteran and always participates in the Honor Guard at the cemetery.
On the home front, we are calving. The man says we are about 1/2 done and branding day is set for the 19th of June.
I hope you have a great holiday weekend. PQ

Thanks for the ideas. I was checking out the cd's on quilt designs. Wow! They have five volumes. I was thinking about getting vol 4. Is it true that you can make them any size to fit your quilt? I guess then you print them out to use. I have a light box so that would really work great for me.

WoW! You drew all those freehand - and then quilted them. What great talent. Looks wonderful. Joyce
