Bummed

Well Pam aparently no one appologized for ordering this weather! My quilt guild meeting was cancelled...Again. For snow. We only meet once a month which in itself is a bummer. Haven't had a meeting since Nov 7. And that was the night my Dad passed away. Sighs. No wonder it took so long to find my quilting MoJo.

Quilting MoJo

Well I seem to have lost my Quilting MoJo. No idea where it went. I have several quilts started. Just the piecing stage. HELP! It's been very cold here too. Had to get new hot water heater last week. Froze and busted along with the pipes under the house to my kitchen sink DH says no fix til warms up so I get to heat water on the stove for dishes. Ugh! Been crocheting. Have a new DGbaby Ava Cathrine born 11-18-2013. Only seen pics. She is 2000 miles away in Sac area of CA. Sighs. So. Ladies what… Continue

Way to start the New Year!

DH and I have our 9 year old DGD for New Years again. She got a Mini Sewing machine and sewing supplies along with some fabric for Christmas. She is so excited to learn and I love that!
She is making a small pillow for her little cousin from Lightning McQueen Cars fabric she picked out. So cute! I can't wait to help her. We had ironing lessons last night. Now she wants a mini iron too! Lol.

Does anyone live near me?

BJ has inspired me! Thanks lady! I want to meet my fellow QWU gals! I am in East Central Indiana, about 10 miles from the Ohio border. I live in a tiny rural farmtown. So, I will have to drive to meet anyone who wants to meet up. Within 100 miles. Near Ft Wayne, Indianapolis, Dayton, etc. Let me know!

Surprise!

Last Saturday, my DH surprised me with a day trip to Indianapolis. About 11/2 hours from our rural farm town. He took me to a quilt shop! ON PURPOSE! I was in shock. Quilt Quarters, if anyone is in the area. Nice shop. A Bernina dealer. I actually bought a Robert Kauffman jelly roll. Tropicals. It was bright and cheery. Well, when waiting for my DH to pump gas later, I unrolled it. And to my amazement, I discovered I had picked out fabric for DH! He is into fish tanks. Angel fish and catfish… Continue

My birthday

Hello! Yep, today is my birthday! No, I'm done counting! LOL. There are some sad things in my life right now. We have to put our beloved Newfie, Julie, down friday. She has agressive bone cancer. Poor baby. That is such a hearache, on the heels of such joy she has given for 9 years. She will be missed. I haven't been sleeping well. So I stay up late and work on my DGD quilt. Piecing this top has been my therapy. My solace and comfort. Amazing that quilting can do that for us, isn't it?

RE: Help!

Clarification. I am sewing quarter square triangle to same size quarter square triangle. I am confused by previous comments. Thank you for them tho! Lol

Help!

I am sewing quarter square triangles together on the short side. They keep slipping, ending up crooked when sewn. Also they are stretchy, of course. How to I counter that? Any suggestions are welcome.

Soft backing

My DGD is turning 9 next week. I am working on a quilt she is helping to design for her. She has been pretty specific on what she wants! And she wants the backing to be all one piece and has to be SOFT. I thought flannel. But not too crazy about using flannel on a pieced cotton quilt. Any suggesstions?

Squaring up a quilt top

I am having trouble with a quilt top that isn't finishing quite square before putting on the borders. How do I square it up and then put on borders?
