About Me
I have been addicted, I mean quilting for around 10 years. There is just something about cutting apart fabric and creating something from all those little pieces that nonquilters just can't understand. I come from a floral design background. (I owned my own shop for 28 years.) And quilting fulfills my need to create. I'll never win any contests, but I love it and love giving my creations away.
My Website (not your email address)
Hobbies and Interests
quilting, applique, paper piecing, machine quilting
My pets are awesome!
3 kitties-Bart, Krusty and Patches

I owe my mother........

Posted on May 12, 2010 at 5:18am 10 Comments

It's a tad after Mother's Day, but needed to share this. I know that my mother and/or my grandmother has said each of these to me and my brother. In turn, I have imparted that wisdom on to my boys! :0)

> I Owe My Mother **************************************


> 1. My mother taught me TO APPRECIATE A JOB WELL DONE .

> 2. My mother taught me RELIGION.



Shabby scarf

Posted on February 4, 2010 at 3:06pm 2 Comments

Here's the website where I got the idea for my scarves. They were too long to post, so the website line is easier. Of course I've made many variations on this and if you try it, I'm sure that you will make it "your own" too. One tip that I can give with this-the instuctions tell you to use a spray adhesive on the wash away stabilizer. I used it on the first couple that I did, but had a heck of a time getting the sticky to wash out, so I don't use it any longer. I just pin the heck out of it and… Continue

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!

Thanks for letting me know Melzee. It is important to stay within our limitations. Do you want to keep on the list for future ones?

Melzee - Please contact me ASAP (today would be best). We're starting a new group challenge quilt in LOAQ and I need to know if you want to be a part of it.  BJ

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!
