Hi Victoria!  Hope all is well in California with you and your family.  We are finally getting some spring-like weather here in southwestern Nebraska.  Calving season for us starts in mid-May.  The grass is greening up and I'm enjoying the warmer weather, spending more time outdoors working with my husband.  Our daughter graduates from college May 7th with a business degree.  She's job hunting.  Our son is just finishing up his first year in college and is headed to Montana for the summer to cowboy on a ranch up there.  I'm still plugging away hand quilting on a twin size quilt and machine piecing a quilt top.  Take care!  Jan

Hi, Victoria--let's see: I quilt in a square Q-snap frame in my lap b/c I like to be able to turn the quilt in the direction I'm quilting. Because of our climate, I try to have smaller projects to quilt on in the summer, bed-size in the winter. The Dresden Plate is my favorite quilt so far--the design around the plate isn't stippling. I used a vine with a flower in each corner. One of the things i learned from the judges' comments at the fair was that it's really important to distribute the quilting evenly and go to the edge of the quilt--one of the things I'm concentrating on now. The DWR was a big undertaking for me--used Shar Jorgenson's templates. As usual, it looked really great to me until I started basting it. By the time I'm halfway through quilting it will look awful, but then I'll be pleased again when it's finished. Only drawback to hand quilting (other than speed) is that you know where every one of your mistakes is. :)

Thank you for inviting me to be your friend, Victoria--I'm delighted. You joined a great group, didn't you? I love Around the Frame!

Couldn't find our group picture but I did find a cpl pictures taken at the old schoolhouse. Our group has 80 year olds and a couple 60s.

Victoria, I think we have some things in common - our love for traditional, scrappy quilts being one, and love of hand quilting for another. I also have a floor frame similar to your that was handed down by my great aunt. The stands are a little different, but the concept is the same. My boards are fabric-wrapped. We were always taught to pin the backing to the board, and then pin the top to the flap (through the backing). I never understood why that was so, because "pinning to the board" was very difficult. After seeing your picture with the backing loaded onto the frame, I think yours is the better method. I learn something new all the time. PS: Happy belated birthday!

Loved your video!!! Looks so much like the group I quilt with. They have been quilting for over

50 years and we have some newbies. I joined them about 3 years ago. Here's a picture of where we quilt. It is the only building in the historical village with heat and electricity. We tack our quilts on our old frames and I use a balloon to pull my thread through. Thanks for the video. I will try to find a group picture to send you.

Victoria,
I'm happy to have you as a friend. Your hand quilting is to be admired. Wish you could join us at the historical vilage every Friday. We have 2 quilts right now we are hand quioting. The $ we make goes toward maintaining the village and we have a lovely group of women (about 8 of us). judy
