I drew out the entire "Primitives I" sampler quilt. The quilt is a no sashing between blocks quilt. Your first block is actually six blocks. You got that right? One equals six, and those six will be the first and only row. You may actually begin, and wait for the applique diagram, which I can do via photo download. That will get us started. Ok, pay close attention.

For what is coming your way, select a nice variety of dark backgrounds. You will have 12 blocks puzzled together, some touching as many as 6 other blocks. Your 1st block (copied for 6 total) begins with cutting width of fabric (WOF-40") into 2-1.5" strips of light, and 2-1.5" strips of dark. Sew a light to a dark strip to make 2 sets. Now your strips should measure 40ish x 2.5". Press to the dark. Lay it out running side to side long ways and cut across the narrow part every 2.5" for a total of 18-2.5" squares. Align the seams vertical (up and down). Sew 3 squares together light to a dark, all seams veritcal (up and down) to create a row 2.5 x 6.5", light, dark, light, dark, light dark. You need six of these. Sew a 6.5" square of background fabric to the 6.5" side of your "checkered" strip. Applique primitive star to each 6.5" square. Each block is now 8.5" high x 6.5" wide. Sew your six blocks together on the 8.5" sides, alternating the checkered strip top, bottom, top, bottom, top, bottom.

I'm going to draw this to scale, color it in, and show you your block after I take a pic of it. Give me an hour. Then you can see what these instructions mean.

A New Group! Wonders and Whimsies

Posted on June 23, 2011 at 7:14pm 3 Comments

A wonderful new group is now available for you to join.  If you work with themes to create your wonders, I would like to invite you to participate.  On the first and fifteenth of the month, a new idea will be proposed.  Share your thoughts and reactions, and if you create (or have created) something fitting the concept, share it.  What you come up with might just launch someone else.  There are no deadlines, and no rules.  If you are working with fiber and creating with it, art or not, you…

Gonna Be's


In my basket you will see,

My whole bunch of gonna be's.

How they get there I don't know,

But the basket seems to grow and grow,

Pillow, quilt, and table cover.

I am proud and…

Hi Robin, Stumbled onto your page and it is fantastic.  I am new to quilting but may I hang around and watch a bit?

Hi Robin, thank you so much for you sweet comments about my quilt.

Now out of the hospital and have moved to a skilled nursing home to receive IV antibiotics for a bone infection. Had surgery to remove the problem area, but my blood work indicates some continued issues. I checked into the ER on 7/7, so it has been a loooooong July! Hope to go home sometime this month, after the medical detectives solve the newest problems.

I was going to find a Texas window sticker, but life had other plans for my time. Spotty Internet service in this facility, so I check m email perhaps once a week now. Hope all is well with you and my T4T friends.

Thanks Robbin. The red and black is actually about 12" x about 9"...I made these beads for the first time after Royce gave a tutorial in the group. They were fun, and easy, to make!

Thanks for taking a peek!

Hi, Robbin:  We live in the Phoenix area, the fires are not near us.  They are in the southwestern and northwestern part of the state.  I, too, am praying for those affected.  I am so sad that so many all across the US are having such terrible tragedies.  We keep them in are thoughts and prayers every day.

Thank you Robbin, I have always had a variety of interests and find it relaxing to swich gears often. Right now besides alterations, I have a dress, purse and a wall hanging cut out and ready to sew. I like scap booking and I did cakes for over 30 years. I haven't been in your new group lately. I have been re-doing my dining room.

Please use that series of photos as inspiration Robbin. The poles were actually covered in knitted strips - why not use some pin weaving or actually weave on to your poles - not too sure how hard that would be.  What about woven torn strips of satiny fabric, glued to the poles and then overlaid with other strips? What about paint and then glued stuff - yarns, ribbons, twine,  grasses! The mind boggles.

Robbin, - regarding your comment on the "ticked off" post - WELL SAID!  You articulated perfectly what I could not.  Thank you.

I got the angel from Becky Ray's generous box and have decided to call her the Button Angel. When I ever get the opportunity to send something from my stash to help with theirs, the angel will go with it. The Button Angel will, I predict, travel far and wide! I do think of you often and wonder when. Do and DH ever stop traveling? Wow! You have been hither and yon the last month. For a creative, expansive mind it must be difficult to move around so much. I'm sure your journal(s) are getting full. Can't wait for the eventual day we meet. And we will.

Robbin--I used to live in Waycross and came to Jacksonville to shop with my daughter.  And I got to come to the big quilt show twice---I really enjoyed it a lot, in spite of getting horribly lost each time!  We moved to Dublin when DH retired b/c we wanted to get out of the swamp, but be near a VA hospital and also to stay in Georgia b/c of the Hope Scholarship for our kids.  We're below the Gnat Line, but above the Fall Line--so our weather is still very hot in the summer, but it isn't hot all year long and the humidity isn't so bad.....there are also fewer frogs, snakes, and alligators.  I would still love to be up tin the mountains, but this is good.  For one thing, I have two guilds I enjoy.

Hi Robbin,  I think my grandson got bored with working on this project so it hasn't gotten any further than rows of blocks.  I am going to get him to sit down & finish it once I get my new sewing room set up.  Or maybe I can get his younger brother (Jesse James!) to work on it.

Robbin, I got your beautiful card and my goodness, that yoyo!!  What a treasure!  It's the prettiest thing I've ever seen in yoyoy's..lots of talent in it..
