Life in the slow lane

I hope you all are escaping the Covid 19. Here in Calais we haven't had any cases but we wear masks, gloves and stay home as much as we can. I hope this pandemic will blow over soon so we can get our lives back to normal. I'm beginning to wonder if we will ever see normal again. Down State has has quite a few cases but it's more populated and nearer to other States. Our bridge into Canada has been closed for months.

I keep busy. I have a neighbor who needs help with cleaning her…

Quilt for my older brother

A couple of years ago my brother Mike asked me if I ever saw fabric with tractors on it.  I told him I would keep an eye out & let him know if I ever found some.  I visited a local quilt shop & saw this panel along with 2 others.  I liked this one the best as the old barn reminds me of the old barn on the farm where I grew up in Michigan.  I sent him a picture & he liked it so I told him if he would buy the fabric, I would supply labor & batting as a 70th birthday gift. I…

vacation time!!!!

So I've been trying to decide if I want to hand quilt one of the tops I posted previously.  It was the broken arrow quilt.  I also posted pictures of the calligraphy designs I wanted to use.  I recently traced the calligraphy designs on some muslin fabric and stitched it out.  Looked pretty good.  The problem now is how to transfer the designs to the quilt. I know it wouldn't be much of a problem for me except for the fact that I already have the quilt sandwiched and ready to quilt. It was…

glue basting spray

A word to the wise:  if you think your glue-baste quilting spray is too old, be very cautious about using it.  Mine is several years old, and not something I use(d) very often.  I can't tell you how old, because I don't remember when I bought it.  

I was working on a shannon fabric (minkee) blanket and since it is somewhat slippery, I thought I'd tack it together with small amounts of basting spray.  

As I was cleaning the spout, I got some glue on my hands.  I sure hope it…

Any ideas?

A family friend is organizing an estate auction and asked my opinion on the value of some quilts.  I know it is difficult to do from a distance, but anyone have a rough ballpark guess as to what she should expect.  …

I nearly lost my mind

Yes it was driving me crazy trying to make these blocks.  I haven’t done curved piecing in quite a while and the straight cut blocks weren’t exactly symmetrical either. But the top is almost finished. I just need to work on the border pieces and it will be done.  Oh and this one is mine.  Not going to give this one away.  Lol  Sorry I don’t know why it keeps trying to post picture sideways…

Recommendations needed on rulers

Hi. I have recently begun working with HSTs.  What ruler do you all prefer to use for squaring up HSTs?   I am looking at purchasing either Clearly Perfect Slotted Trimmers or Bloc Loc ruler or Quilt In A Day Square Up Triangle Ruler.  
  I would appreciate your recommendations.

Accumulated quilt stuff

Lately I have been in the mood to start going through my quilt room as well as my 2nd bedroom where I store some of my  quilt stuff, but mostly yarn, to get more of an idea of what I have.  I don't know whether to feel happy that I probably don't need to buy anything other than thread, batting  and stabilizer (for my embroidery machine) for the next several  years or guilty because I have so much stuff!  I found kits I had forgotten I even had.  That makes me feel guilty.  

I did get…
