I have done the Jelly Roll bag and I have seen that Paris bag but have not gotten the pattern as it is a suitcase . I have done 1 or 2 with zzippers but not very good with them. I love them but it is not easy for me. I might have to do this one just to prove to myself that I am not afraid of zzzippers. lol
Heidi Welcome to Fl and wishin you good luck with your move. The leaf quilt was a kit that I bought when we were in Winterset Iowa at Frons and Porter's quilt shop. I even got to meet Liz Porter. It is from the Nov 2001 magazine. Once you get settled in I can send you a copy of the instructions.
Hello Heidi, The painted Turtle pillow case was a National community service project the American Sewing Guild did for The Painted Turtle Camp that Paul Newman started. www.thepaintedturtle.org/turtle. Each chapter who volunteered to make the pillow cases sent them to a contact in Calif. and they stuffed them and gave them to the camp. Anyone can help by going to the above website and volunteering to make a pillow. Then you can download the pattern from their site. I thought they were adorable.
Just wanted to pop in to say “hello” and introduce myself. I’m Linda Hubalek, fellow quilter and author from Kansas. Books about pioneer women are my specialty, with a cooking or a quilting theme mixed into each historical fiction series.
My Trail of Thread historical fiction book series, written in the form of letters sent back home, describes my ancestors’ wagon trail journey and homesteading in Kansas. Each book mentions twelve old-time quilt patterns, and I put drawings of them in the back of the books.
So if you like to read—besides quilting—please enjoy my blog and book excerpts on my website. Besides printed as paperbacks, my ten books are also available for your Kindle or Nook. (Good choice for gifts, or yourself, because the ebooks are on sale now!)
I have about a dozen quilts made by my great grandmother, (that we used all the time when I was a kid) so I’m into antique quilts and patterns. What kind of quilts and patterns do you like to work with?
