Hi Melzee. I will write the IT dept for a request to have members be able to delete groups, discussions as long as they are the creator, such in your case. Thank you for writing! Unfortunately right now I can only delete them...if you can direct me on what you would like deleted I can do this for you. Thanks!
How funny that we'd buy the same jelly roll! I can't wait to see yours. I think they could look very different depending on what order the strips are in. I just threw them in a basket and picked them out randomly. It's so fun to see what it looks like once it's finished.
Think about taking the Marilyn Belford class on Quilt University, it starts October 7. She is a member of the LOAQ group too, so I have started a Discussion Forum of members who want to take it. She does awesome work, and I know it will be fun and a real learning experience.
Guess I just assumed you owned a quilt shop, my I have too much of a fabric addiction to own one or work at one. I always say if I worked at one it would cost me too much at the end of the week. I can not resist fabric!
sounds like you all had a great time at the Pizza Ranch! if you still have a kit for the flower block, i handed out mine on Tuesday nite (crazy for cosmos) and would love to have yours in my quilt. thanks
The challenge is out, lets see how many of us can join the wonderful new campaign called Stitching for Pink !!! Starts today until 30 October. Its gonna be so much fun with 10 projects to complete. Come on Embroiderers lets unite and join the fight against Breast Cancer !!!
The fractured batik sounds neat - hand painted panel huh? That should be beautiful - you always find the most unique projects. I expect to see pictures - I'll give you an hour or two after the class. LOL Have a really fun time!
yes it is a good place to start. It is a wooden table with metal rails and the wooden carriage rolls on a continuos line of plastic so no bumps. Can be crib queen or king size.I used it for a dozen quilts and was very happy with the results. Havnt figured out how to post pics yet. Let me know if you want more info.
That has to be hard Melzee - with never knowing how your mom will be from day to day. No matter what she remembers that day, she will feel the love in that quilt. I lost both my parents years ago, my mom in '89 and my dad in '91 but I was so blessed that Mom's mind was sharp till the end and Dad's, although somedays a little "foggy" was pretty good -- he always knew everyone; just sometimes very emotional and forgetful. Keep your chin up; I'm praying for you!
Yep, that was the first one! Of course I had an instructor standing over me for most of it and I had sewn clothes for years. We had one class a week for a month I think with "homework" in between. The seams aren't matched so well and the quilting is VERY basic - I'm still working on improving that but I am grateful to my friend who begged me to take the class with her. It has led both of us to addiction!
