Hi Helen. Just stumbled in here. I'm in a couple of other groups here on CT's.
Noticed that you are from Newton. I live in Franklin, MA...but, I, too, am a Newton Girl. Born and Grew up in Newton. Went to Newton High School. Met My DH in High School, and he is from West Newton. We should start the Newton Girls Group. Check us out on Quilty...Anne Grinley
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 !!!
I am sorry you have been ill. And that your computer had a virus, hope both are now better! My daughter went to school in Cummington - in the Berkshires. A private boarding school. She also lived in Boston for a year, but missed home, a surprise to her! She always thought she wanted to live in the city, NOT in Vermont! She is now 25 and on her own. Sigh....they grow up quickly....
Hi Helen, thank you for welcoming me to East Coast Quilter group. I live in Essex, Vermont, which is outside of Burlington. About 40 minutes from the Canadian border. My daughter went to school in MA and we spent time visiting her there. Another beautiful state :) Paula
Hi Helen, I saw that you had a question regarding the 3D Shelf quilt I did. Thanks for the compliments, but no, I did not design this myself. I'm not that comfortable with the whole process for that yet. This was a pattern called Shadow Box by Pieces Be With You, Susan K. Cleveland, #106. Good luck. Maria
Hi Helen, Sorry for not responding sooner, but I just saw this message. You asked if this quilt, which I also use as my logo picture, is a wall hanging? The answer is yes. The dimensions are 20 x 20 and is called Deco Medallion found in a book by Gai Perry called 24 Qulted Gems published by C&T Publishing I think its dated 2003. Just to let you know, there are no, I repeat, no set-in-seams in this piece. There is a bigger quilt of the same design on the cover, I did the smaller one. I actually made two of them. I see you are in Newton, I'm down in Norton. Hope this helps. Maria
Hi - try http://www.waysidequilters.org/ . I know some of the members - still quilt with a few in an informal group. I believe that they meet at the Sudbury Library, which is easy to find - right off of Rt. 20. I do enjoy my little groups...also belong to one that used to be hosted at Fabric Place in Framingham, but we've been forced to go it alone since they closed....I'll check with my sister-in-law and see what she is into in Newton too....will check back later when I find out!
Hi - I'm in Marlborough and there are a few quilt groups around here...there is one in Sudbury (Wayside Quilters) that meets one Monday night a month I believe; my guild meets in Southborough - a little farther out. Another in Arlington that you have to be somehow sponsored to join....My sister-in-law lives in Newton and quilts...want me to check to see where she does this?
I don't like feeling house bound either. It just seems to happen every winter whether we like it or not. I worked yesterday but I stayed in all day Wed the day of the storm. The roads are much better now. My son is much better, thanks for asking. He's still on the tired side but other than that, he's okay. I want to get so much quilting done today but I'm all over the place! I went out a few times and then had to cook dinner. I have to work tomorrow so I should get something done today. I feel like reading, not quilting! Isn't that awful??!! You're so lucky to be able to get away to the warmth of California. How long will you be there?
