Finally! ...photos have arrived

I finally got around to posting photos of many of the quilts I have finished.  I lost several photos when I decided to use my camera and somehow turned them into movies!  UGHH!!  Anyway, there are some still to share. 

 

I loaded my mom's king size quilt last night and hope to have it finished for her birthday, Oct 19th.  I have already given her several dresser scarves, but she has NO idea she is going to get a quilt.  I can't wait to surprise her!  Right now she is using a…

I Am Still Here!

Have not posted for quite a while!!  I have been focusing on my daughter who is in a long-term health care facility in Portland - she has had quite a bit of brain damage so far and will not recover completely.  She is now able to feed herself, but she is not eating enough so they have inserted a feeding tube into her stomach.  She responds very sweetly - however she does not know anyone - not even her husband - but she does sense that they are somehow a couple.  The doctors still do not know…

Great Nephew's Baby Quilt

I made this for my first great nephew. His mom decided to do his nursery with a red accent wall and using planes in honor of her father who died a few years ago, and who was a Life Flight nurse most of the time she was growing up. I made arrangements with Life Flight to take pictures of the plane her dad flew in as a nurse and then used Photo Shop Editor to remove the hanger and other planes before printing the plane on a printable fabric. Since my great nephew is named after his grandfather…

Breast Cancer bra

The Fashion Club at the high school is doing an awareness display window. I suggested a fabric quilted bra. They were excited. Where do I find pictures of some made in the past for fund raising?

raw edge flannel applique?

Has anyone used flannel for raw edge applique?  I am making a monkey quilt for my great nephew and trying to put the monkies on with machine applique, except I am finding that the edges ravel, am I doing the stitiches too small? should I make the stitches a little larger?  I thought if I made the stitches smaller I would hold the ends without raveling. 

What results did anyone get when they tried raw edge flannel appliques,…

Questions about Signature Quilt??????

I am considering making  a signature quilt for my daughters wedding. Can someone help me with some questions I have.

#1. Do the signature pieces get signed with permanent markers and left like that, or, do they get stitched over with floss?

#2. Is it best to get the signatures and then make the quilt with the signature pieces?

I know these may sound like dumb questions but Im really confused and want to do this quilt, as I think it would be really memorable for my…

I have a new client from sydney Australia. He has ordered 200 shirts with his business name on them. Will start on them next week when I return from trip to Tucson. Working on a quill for my secret sister for… Continue
