Hi Jo, thanks for inviting me to be friends and thanks for your comment on my thread painted bluebells. If you would like more specific help with thread painting, feel free to contact me any time and I will try to help.
Hi Jo: I am from Nova Scotia, quite new to Quilt with us. I have been quilting for 19 years, and have taught quilting for the past 14 years, and try to keep my class projects easy. I would very much like to join your group or a group. Thank you, another Jo..
Hi Jo, I used the software EQ6 to design the Lone Star quilt. I knew I wanted to use blues in the quilt and fell in love the Connecting Threads Indigo fabric. I can download the fabric images into the software then added them to the quilt... it was great and such an enjoyable process to design a quilt then making it real.
Welcome to Quilting Canadians. You will love this group and there are a lot of you from Alberta, but like I said to one of the other girls "we won't hold that against you" (ha). They are a great bunch of girls and a big help. Happy Quilting.
Hi Jo, Thanks for the compliments on my dgs learning how to quilt. This is his last week for school for the year so he is planning on spending more time getting it finished. I'm very proud of him. He caught on better than some adults I have taught! LOL
Yes, those are siggie quilt blocks behind me. I have been waiting for 1 more block to arrive, but don't think that is going to happen so I should just get it finished. The block is called American Chain and you can find it at http://www.quilterscache.com. It is a 6" block, but could probably be made larger if you wish to deal with the math. If you haven't ever done a siggie quilt with non-quilters, one thing I would suggest is that you mark off the quarter inch seam allowance on the part you want them to sign. Otherwise you are apt to lose part of what they write. Also, try to provide a pen if possible so that you don't end up with some written in non-permanent ink. I'm sure your in-laws will be thrilled to get a wonderful gift such as this!
