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.

Hi. I've got my little quilt done and ready to ship off to my nephew's family.

It turned out so cute.

Today's the day I usually post on Sweet Path but we'er all done....  ho-hum.  Hope all is going well with your play quilts!

Awesome Suzanne!  Glad to hear you're so close to being done!

Comment by Suzanne Shumaker on November 21, 2011 at 8:26am

Almost done...  I am finishing the bird today and hopefully will get it sandwiched.  Next weekend I'm hoping to quilt and bind it.  The last few steps flew by.  They would have flown faster if I wouldn't have forgotten about sewing on the velcro before stuffing but ah well, I've gotten them all hand sewn now.

How's everyone coming along?

DD suggested i personalize the pillowcases. My machine does letters but they're only about 1/2 " tall. Not sure whether I ought to. It's a cute idea...

I need to get my serger out of the closet. It's getting sad.

I've got my sweet paths quilt ready to hand sew the binding and label on.

Also have almost got the 'Grumpy Ladybug' (Eric Carle fabrics) ready to sandwich. Just need to do last two sections of border. Needed to take a break .

Hope your loopers stay looped, Barbi.

It's the serger -- if I can keep the lower looper from breaking thread!!
