McKenna Ryan

Daughter decided she wants Faith Hope and Love wall hangings for her house - anyone used McKenna Ryan patters before? I haven't and am unsure about them. Just hoping someone can give me some feedback about them before I spend the $$ - they are pricey, as will be the fabrics.

Found a very nice quilt shop in the middle of NOWHERE!

Just found a cute shop - way off the beaten path! It is one of the nicest shops I've ever been in. Service was great and the prices are quite reasonable. If you are ever in the NE Washington area - north of Spokane, come on down to see it - I'll take you myself... just let me know! It is awesome - you can preview on a new website they have at www.cottagequiltshop.com..... I don't usually get excited about these shops - too expensive. But this was…


Hoffman Challenge

Posted on October 24, 2009 at 11:27pm 0 Comments

It is my understanding that Connecting Threads will carry the Hoffman Challenge fabric which is soon to be released (early November). Will we be able to order it online?

In the Spokane area there is only one shop that will have it as two shops went out of business that normally carry it... too sad.

Thank you...

I posted a note asking for ideas - I'm starting (or trying to) a group through my church. I offered to teach some basic quilting techniques and sewing for projects for practical gift ideas - totes, casserole carriers (we are big on pot lucks!), wall hangings, and other... the notice will be in this Sunday's bulletin at church. It is a very small church so we may not have many, but it is a beginning.

I want to thank those who responded to my post about this with suggestions about how… Continue

Kathy, I appreciated you well thought out response to my blog question.  I agree completely that quilting has become about the competition of how many, how fast.  I think that is because quilt shop owners need quilters to complete projects in a hurry so they can buy more and more fabric!  

I also agree with your sentiment that quilting is about the process, not the competition.  It's one of the reasons I don't belong to a guild.  That, and because I always figured in the hour it takes to get to the meetings and back is time better spent quilting.   I've heard many quilters (including myself) say they quilt because it is relaxing and fulfilling, and that's how it should be.   

I'm grateful for on-line shops, just because I don't get to town that often.  The quilt shop I mentioned that is closing down is located in a town of approximately 1000, and that's probably a generous estimate.  I just don't think there was any way it could generate enough daily foot traffic to be sustainable. 

Thanks again for your input.

Hi Kathy,
I'm so sorry I haven't checked my site until now. I'm not quite sure what you want an answer to. I know the our Slackers are great talkers and sometimes it is hard to find the info you want without going through a ton of pages. Anyway, if there is a question I can help you with, let me know and I will give it my best shot. I've been out of commission for a few weeks but am back now.

Good morning Kathy. Well, on my way to Oregon in the morning for a week of quilting. I love the threads of friendship quilting has brought me and I think that's why we continue to seek avenues to share our passion.

I don't know what area you live in but maybe next year you could join us at Quilting on the Mountain. I have a lady from Kremling CO who is coming in this year. Back country TN is trying to get on the map - ha, ha!

Have a great week - acknowledge and enjoy all the blessings coming your way!!!

Good morning, Kathy. It was good to hear your experiences. I am learning that everyone does have their own agendas and not to take it personally that not everyone shares my passions - since I will be 70 my next birthday it tells me I'm a slow learner - ha, ha.

I live out in the country so I am finding it a little challenging to find people who want to share the love and camaraderie of a little quilting community. I'll just do the footwork and give it to God!

Think we may try a group who want to participate in the Quilts for Injured Soldiers project that is so dear to me. I'll just toss it out there and see what happens.

I'm leaving Friday for a visit to Oregon - with one of my favorite quilting buddies and as soon as I get back I will be at Quilting on the Mountain - a 4 day retreat I attend every year. Then I can work on organizing my group in earnest.

Have a great day full of God's blessings.

Hi Kathy, Looks like your 1st one was a little more complicated than mine was. I liked them and the colors you chose.

Kathy! Did we all miss your question to the Slacker's group? I saw your recent post, but nothing caught my eye, that I remember? It wasn't intentional, I can assure you! Please post again & I'm sure someone will reply & help you out, okay!

Hi kathy, Thank you for your comments on my quilts. It always makes the quilter feel good when someone else likes them, too. I browsed thru your quilts and like them. Your kind will be great when finished. I've made 3 of them, the last 2 in 3 sections. It makes it so much easier to quilt when it isn't so big. Then after I sew them together, I just have to quilt that area. Which one is your 1st? Happy quilting.
