Hi Linda....No problem; this is not an uncommon question. I always have both forms of garlic in my kitchen; actually 3 forms.  Chopped garlic is the larger cut; minced garlic is finer. Both are available in jars that last a looooong time in the fridge.  I use  them in the ratio of 1 teaspoon=1 clove (NOT head; that's the entire thing, filled with the little cloves!), The flavor of 'jarred' garlic is a bit milder as the chemical that give it it's pungency (can't remember the name right now) leaches out when the cloves are cut.  Fresh garlic is good for slicing, roasting and you can also chop or mince it to add to dishes.  It doesn't last long and shouldn't be kept in the fridge as it will sprout from the moisture.  I have a garlic jar that has holes in the sides for air circulation but it still won't keep more than a few weeks before drying out.  Anyway, use whatever is most convenient to you.  The jarried garlic is easier to measure out since the fresh garlic cloves tend to be different sizes.  If you can find elephant garlic (it has huge heads) it is much more mild if you just want a whisper of garlic flavor.  Garlic chives are also good, fresh and chopped into a dish.   Okay...more than you ever wanted to know about garlic!

Linda, if your time is cut short, do not worry about this. Deb told me you were in Paducah-lucky girl! Have fun, talk to you when you get back.

Linda  -Thanks for the compliments.  You really do need to make one of these jelly roll quilts.  It goes together quickly and is so fun because you have no idea what it will look like till it's finished.

I know that Marcia really appreciates your friendship and support during this really hard time for her and her hubby.  She is such a pleasure to be around.  I am so happy that she is in the same small group of quilt guild as me - as I feel I already know her!!!

Thanks for the comments on the house - it is getting there.  We are enjoying living in AR and are so happy we made the decision to move here.  Little did we know that we would make such good friends here and enjoy ourselves so much. 

If you are ever down this way to visit Marcie, be sure to let me know so you can come over and see our home in person!!!

Hi Linda, I loved your disappearing 9 patch and am trying to figure out how you did it so that it is "controlled scrappy". I'm wondering if there is a pattern I could order that would tell me how it's done? Also, you posted a few days ago about using what sounded like a spray that you used for basting a quilt. Would love to know more about that product, especially if it means I don't have to crawl around on the floor, pinning the quilt together! Thanks for any help you can give me. You seem so experienced and I wish I was close enough to take some of you classes!

Thank you for your compliments on my work. I checked out the two You Tube sites. Both were very interesting in the way each technique is done. Thank you again for your time.

Thank you so very much. I am still relatively knew to being able to access all types of information on the internet, that I forget to check things out. I will definitely check out You Tube for those techniques. Again thank you very much for your time in answering my questions.  Bonnie

I just looked at the rest of your work and it is beautiful and I wonder if you would explain the one seam flying geese. I am familiar with the 10 minute block or three seam block. But the one seam flying geese is another new one on me.   Thanks Bonnie

Hi Linda.... I just looked at some recent pics of yours and could you explain what a tube quilt is. I have never heard that term.  Thanks  Bonnie

Linda, just an update...your quilt is almost done.  I am sorry it has taken longer than I thought- I had some technichal difficulties with my machine- quilt is fine.  She was out of comission almost all last week and is now cooperating again.  I will call you as soon as it's ready.  Again, sorry for the delay.

Linda, that's what I thought also!!!  The green was a little yellowy for me, but didn't scream so I guess it is ok.  It was suggested that I fussy cut the dragonflies, but I thought they were better just random!!!  Thanks for the comments.

Hi Linda, did you get my info?  I got a message from yahoo this morning saying that my account had been compromised and that I needed to change my PW!!  I changed it and check out my histories and there was something on there from and Illinois location.  Yahoo said that  mobile service providers can show up as different locations, andi think I checked my email the other day from my new cell phone.  I am thinking that was what the "compromise" was.  That was all I could see out of the ordinary on my account.  I hope that's what it was!  I'll have to keep an eye on it.  But anyway, I just wanted to make sure you got everything okay.  Let me know- talk to you soon.

Thanks Linda!   He did call, so my day was complete - talked to all 3 kids, ate breakfast out and played with fabric - it really doesn't get better than that.  Plus dh took the dogs out first thing in the morning - that's normally my turn.

 

Thanks too for the compliment on my projects.  I sure love making them.

Thanks Linda; this group does help me use up a lot of scraps - but I think they are multiplying!

Thank you Linda, I have really enjoyed reading everyone's posts and just love everything about quilts and their makers.  Such a wonderful group of ladies who are always willing to share.

Have a great day

Thanks, Linda.  Sometimes I have to pull the blinds in the late afternoon because the sun is so bright I can't see the screen on my sewing machine!!!  But most of the time, it is great.  The wall hangings are several years old - before I actually got into quilting.  I was doing a lot of counted cross stitch at the time.

Thanks for the comment on the sweatshirt, Linda.  It was her idea, I just implemented it.  When she mentioned it, I thought that it wouldn't be too hard to do that for her.  I opened the sleeve up, used another piece of fabric to finish the edges of the hole for the zipper, then inserted the zipper.
