My friend and I took a purse class at our LQS. I had purchased this fabric at a quilt show in the spring, and couldn't wait to use it! I've had SO many comments on it just carrying it around town!! What fun!

Good morning. I'm just home last night, from Punta Cana, and am already in withdrawl from the Carribean warmth and sunshine! We came home to -20 Celcius and a bone biting wind. Our two sons and their girlfriend/fiances went with us. It was wonderful to spend quality time with them, as one couple lives in BC and we are in Ontario.
It will take another week to sort through the mail, newspapers and emails!
I can't believe we had 275 emails waiting for us!!! I have clicked on the "stop… Continue

Hi, I watched "House Hunters" on HGTV last night. It featured a lady named Anne from Streamwood IL, outside of Chicago, who was looking for a new house. The main criteria was that it have a large, bright area to do her quilting. She has done 50 quilts! They were beautifully displayed throughout her house. Did anyone else see this show? Wouldn't it be amazing if she was one of our CT Quilt With Us, friends? Who knows...maybe she is!!!

We were approached by a local nursing home to make a "Dignity Quilt".

One of the residents made a comment… Continue

Okay all you math whiz people....if you know the size of the 1/2 square triangle that you want to make,,,how do you figure out what size of squares to cut to make it? I usually make my 1/2 sq triangles by cutting the square in half diagonally.
