Quilt With Us

Renae Thomas's Blog (7)

Long time!!

It seems like it's been forever since I posted on here.   Maybe some of you can identify with two children in school, their activities both church and school related...& then working full time, coming home and working some more... only to feel wiped out at the end of the night and just want to crash. (add to all of that--that I've been a single mother for the last 7 months)    I haven't been getting a lot of quilting done--but I do work on it whenever I can even if it's for just 5-10 min…

Special Deliveries - Almost done!

I've been spending much of the last two weekends working on two quilts for my co-worker, Sharon. Sharon's mother used to quilt...and when she passed away Sharon gave me a box of unfinished quilts, mainly squares. When Sharon became a grandmother herself--I couldn't resist creating a quilt for her granddaughter using the dresden plate blocks Sharon's mother started. It's getting nearer to finally being finished! Lots of hand-quilting in it.... And if that's not enough--Sharon's daughter is due… Continue

Sold my Frame--now to buy a new sewing machine?

I've sold my Handi-Quilter II frame! Finally!! I've contemplated buying a new machine...now to decide which one. "Test drove" the Bernina Quilters Edition on Saturday----LOVED IT! Anyone have anything they can share about the Bernina brand....or this particular model? Just curious as I continue to ponder whether or not to buy.... It's not a cheap one! But will likely be the last machine I buy!

Home Sewing Machine - Quilting Frame

Does anyone who quilts shop Craig's List?? I'm guessing not..... so sad, because I have a Handi Quilter II quilting frame that you use with your home machine listed....and not one reply!! Ok....it's just been a week... maybe I need to be more patient??? I am doing Craig's List---since I don't have the original box anymore for shipping (it was pretty beat up)...so hoping I sell somewhat locally. Next thing i will try is putting it in the ND Quilters Guild Newsletter....after I find out when the… Continue

My first T-shirt quilt

Well--almost done with my first t-shirt quilt ever! Of course--knowing me---I make it somewhat complicated... Nothing is in a neat row....it's random and very puzzle like. The quilt is for a friend's son who is graduating from high school this year. I'm helping her make it--as she's never made a quilt before...muchless a t-shirt quilt and I've never made a t-shirt quilt. First time for everything!! The good news--her son loves it!! He thinks it's so cool that it's not all in a row and…

Home Machine Quilting Frame

I bought a Handi Quilter II (table top frame) to use with my home machine, thinking I could get way more quilted/accomplished in less time. However--I just can't break myself of the hand-quilting. (I know--most say I'm crazy) Unfortunately--I'd like to sell it. Does multiple small projects at once on up to king size... If anyone interested--let me know. Happy Quilting Everyone!
