I've been quilting for 19 years and it's still just as obsessive as when I started! Keeping my family and friends in quilts is a big job and with our older kids slowly moving out and into their own lives, their quilt needs are expanding :)
Thanks Sue for your input. I like the idea of using it on the back with borders. I didn't know it said do not rely by email. I need to change that. Hope you are having a great week. I have also started my next quilt called Teacher's Pet.
Hi Sue, I saw your posts on the Around the Quilt Frame discussions and clicked your page, only to find out you're from McHenry! I live just south of you. You're only the second person from our county I've found here -- there's a woman in Woodstock as well. I enjoyed seeing your quilts, especially all the applique!
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 help Sue, but the problem is I used muslin on the front for the plain in between the batiks, so I wanted something a little less plain... that's where I was hoping for something a little different. Thanks for the advise though!!!
I am okay, Sue. I had to just see the doctor for blood pressure medication. I know that I am anxious a lots with all the problems that I have been having.
I plan on trying that project as soon as I can. I know that I can at least figure out some colors and I am keeping your directions handy. I will ask question to you if and when I find that I am having problems, probably at the FIRST. lol ;-))) And the middle, and the end. ;-)
The pressure that I have right now is those baby quilts.

Thank you, I will have to write all of this down and start thing about it. I have to do those quilts for baby 3. She is due any time now. That will be my son's second child. I plan on going to CA in May to visit with them after I finish grading all papers and turning grades in for my online English class. Today, I had to go to the doctor to renew my migraine medications. I am fighting a migraine now. It is very hard to work on the Internet when I have a migraine because of the light.
Have a good one and thank you for all your wonderful correspondence.

You don't think that I need a pattern? I like what you have done with the trianges and think that the project would look nicer with the trianges. I think the second project, number 8 is more of a eye catcher because of the orange. How wise are the squares? Did you say that you had this pattern online?
I have a meeting this coming Tuesday and don't really like what they want to do (sewing meet). They want us to take something old and made something new from it. The only thing that I can think of is making a purse from old jeans.
I will look for that at the Dollar store because I am very interested in making this item. Maybe I can even "Show and Tell" it at the sewing meet. I have never presented anythng yet for the group to do. I am going to start asking the other Paulettes if any of them have sewn this project. ;-)
Thank you, Paulette
