AQS Quilt show in Des Moines

Posted on October 9, 2010 at 2:25pm 3 Comments

I just got back home from the AQS show in Des Moines, Iowa. What a terriffic show! I took 4 classes on longarm techniques from Judy Woodworth. She does excellent demonstrations and her enthusiasm is contagious. I also took a reverse applique class from Teri Henderson Tope. Teri is a lot of fun, and we had plenty of one-on-one instructions which is so helpful in a class like that. If you are thinking about taking a class from either of these teachers, you will not be disappointed! Both of…


My "reverse sewing" weekend

Posted on August 19, 2009 at 4:56pm 7 Comments

I'm working on a king-sized quilt for my sister-in-law, and learned a lesson the hard way: ALWAYS check the finished dimensions of the quilt pattern against the finished dimensions of the quilt you actually want to make! I am doing a great Eleanor Burns pattern called Lover's Knot. I have been happily sewing along, putting my blocks into rows and getting ready to sew my rows together, stopping occasionally to admire how the pattern was shaping up and visualizing it with the finished borders in… Continue

Working in Fits and Starts

Posted on March 10, 2009 at 11:22am 0 Comments

Dreary day in NW Iowa today. I am washing/drying/pressing some fabric pieces for my stash. I think I have resolved the tension situation on my Voyager 17 longarm. Now I have to reload my frame (having used up my practice piece). I ordered a cast-iron cone thread holder from Clotilde.com, and I really need that to get my bobbin wound properly. Once I get some bobbins wound and frame re-loaded, I can test drive again and see if the tension is correct. It all looks so simple on the video - - - -

Thanks so much for the resources on the Mar. compass. I just checked our local library's website and it looks like they have the 40 bright and bold pieced blocks from Carol Doak. I will keep an eye out for the other 2 as well. Hope you've had a happy fourth!

Thank you for your comment about why my supervisor reacted the way he did to my quilt gift. I feel your comments may be exactly what happened. I appreciate your insight and thoughtfulness. I feel much better.

Hi Pat,
... thanks for the sweet birthday wishes - I'm sorry it's been a few days since I've been able to respond - my husband and I adopted a dog on Sat. and it's not going all that well with the cat ... I'm exhausted trying to keep the 2 apart. We finally bought a "baby-gate" ... this way Fuffer (dog) won't chase the Fluffy (cat).

thanks pat...you have my sisters name :) She is doing ok but she misses her children and grandchildren. I live on the other side of the state she she is a good distance from them. I don't have the heart to tell her she no longer has a home there. I think it should be up to her children to do that. And even if she was told, I doubt she would remember. Her memory is very bad. I'm glad you enjoyed the quilt tops. I'm hoping to get the one I finished today quilted soon. I'm planning on starting it tomorrow. Hopefully I'll have it totally completed in two weeks....that's my goal anyway...lol.
