Hi Lucille, how are the quilt classes going? Let us know how you are getting on. I spent all last week up to yesterday cleaning up my sewing room (again) after I made a huge mess looking for a specific piece of material (and no I did not find it LOL) now I am good to go after I spend some time cleaning the rest of the house that I neglected over that time.
Hi Lucille, Glad to "meet" you. All quilts are perfect just as Doreen said...and every day of quilting is a learning experience where we find something else we didn't know about or try a new technique. Just enjoy every stitch and love the end result! Happy quilty day, Susan
Hi Lucille,,,,I'm Anne from Peterborough!
Glad to see you are on the Canadian site. There is a large 'day' quilt group in Peterborough. In fact they are putting on a quilt show in May this year. I could get you a contact name and number if you like. Two of my good friends are on the show committee....I am not a member as yet, as I still work full time, days.....but my time WILL come!! At least, that's what I keep telling myself!
Excellant Lucille, glad to hear from you. Classes are always fun, and you get to make new friends that have the same interest. I just saw that there is a new "Canadian" group on here, I was just about to sign up for it. Keep in touch
HI Lucille: I think if you try it this way Sew to the V, keep your needle down. lift your presser foot twist slightly and crease fabric (like you would a mitre) put presser foot down and continue sewing, you might want to go back and hand sew it down, but I found that that worked for me.
Hi Lucille, I retired in July, and you are right, was more organized when I was working. I am getting so that I don't want to go out at night either. I know that Peterborough's quilt guild has a chapter that meets during the day. Once you start digging you will probably be surprised at the number of quilter's in your area. Where do you buy your fabric? As far as being perfect goes, who is? and the more you do the better you will get. I taught basic quilting a number of years ago and still do some demos for my guild. So if I am able to help at all, just ask.
I "retired" from my 9-5 job 5 years ago, but the family has me babysitting grandchildren 5 days a week. So you can see how that would cut into my quilting time! Sometimes I'll get in a little quilting during nap time, but mostly I use that time to go through magazines and plan projects. that's why my to do list keeps getting longer. - Jane
