I am a long time member of "Quilting With Us" (QWU). I used to give virtual workshops here. Like many others, I have ventured out as QWU became more quiet.

We are getting the warning that QWU is at risk of being disabled. I fear this is a sign that QWU will one day be no more.

It has become like family here and the thought of losing the friendships we have developed has giving me a sad heart. Like many dark clouds, there is a silver lining. When I ventured out, I created a quilters social network, much like QWU. I never mentioned it, for it was a conflict of interest. However, in this dark hour, it is time to let others know there is an alternative. It does not have to end here.

I would be honored for QWU members to join "Pattern Pastiche". If needed, we are more than happy to create a group for your new home.

Hello my name is Debbie. I live in Louisiana and I have 6 Grands. Two girls and 4 boys. I taught 2 of the boys to sew and one girl. The boys have each made a twin size quilt. I hand quilted them. The youngest was 7 when he made his. The oldest is 14 and took a life skills class at school he had to sew as part of it. this is a big boy and 6'2" and 245 lbs. his teacher did not believe he could sew but he showed her. He got an A in that class. I was so proud. I will check in later. Looking forward to seeing more things made. Have a nice day.

Just in the comment box there is a line of symbols, the second one in allows you to upload a picture. When it is done the box displays the pixel size (I think) it usually is something like 750 you need to make this smaller,  about 350. I think you just follow on screen instructions after that.

Hello all, I hope it's okay to post what we do with our grandchildren too. My granddaughter and I are working on the Craftsy 2013 BOM. We are each making our own quilt. She is eleven, so she needs help with some skills. This is what we did this weekend. I helped with the curved seams. She is using modern fabrics and I am using traditional. IT is lots of fun.

Here is my traditional block.


You are so right, being able to control the speed is a big piece of the success. I was lucky to be able to get an older Janome from a coworker when she purchased a new machine. It has speed control and a 1/4 foot. It made all the difference. Isn't it a blessing to be able to sew for and with our grandchildren.

I finally finished my granddaughter's quilt.  She's just about ready to move into a full size bed.  Better late...
