Remember those circle blocks I posted last September? I decided to do Sashiko patterns on the inside circles.
Here are a few... I still have a dozen to go.Continue
Me and my Rotary cutter are back in business..I was a little timid when I picked it up. ;)) .As many of you know, Saturday, I snipped off a tip of my Left index finger. I'm really surprised that its healing so fast, but delighted ! :)
Its still a little tough typing, cause I still have it bandaged ! So please excuse any typing errors.....LOL
Hav a good night everyone, I have some cutting and sewing and quilting to do.
There are alot of us on here and we all want to share our pics of our work ( ufo's and finished projects etc.) as well as our families and things sometimes. Why not send your suggestions to the Administration and allow them to choose what is best for all of us. Granted we all have a way we would like to do things, but they are just trying to protect our privacy and our images!!! At one point I wanted to put up pics of my family but because of hackers and the ones that don't have anything…Continue
It really is a joy to see and read what is going on with our friends.
Thanks to QWU and CT for keeping this site going, your efforts are appreciated. Suggestions and improvements, learning and growing are a great part of life.

Admin I think you have hit a nerve and need to explain or clarify the changes you would like to suggest to all members, in regards to member posting of pictures.
If I understand right, you are not asking us to delete pictures - just asking us to try to limit our personal pictures, eg. - travels, family, special occasions, (personal things - not crafty) etc.
An update on a grandchild, wedding, weather shots, just something beautiful etc. should be OK (just perhaps not the whole…Continue
There has been some talk recently about what kinds of photos should be posted on QWU. Back in May, 2009, Karen posted as moderator that non-quilt photos and posts are officially fine (read that post here). That policy still stands. However, since that time, membership has grown to well over 20,000, and the photos on the site number over 38,000.
When uploading photos to the site,…Continue
Having read everyones posts about the snow and weather, I can't complain. It's raining in Washington still but at least its not freezing. Things have been fairly quiet around here. just finishing up some things left hanging in the wings for my quilt patterns and getting ready to send out the first of my test patterns. I would have gotten them out sooner but for some reason when I went to add the photos to my instructions, the photos disappeared from my computer. I blame the dogs for…Continue
Okay; so now Bernina has left Canada and I can't get parts here. Yesterday, my dishwasher caught fire. This is not a good start to 2011. This "Kitchenaid" cost a fair amount of money when purchased nine years ago, and when I "googled", I found out that similar models in "Kitchenaid", "Whirlpool" and "Kenmore" have given others the same problem (catching fire suddenly; www.kitchenaidfire.com) both in the US and Canada. …Continue
Emma & Ella embroidered names…each letter took almost an hour and had up to 12 thread changes…I think they look great! I trimmed each letter down to 5.5 inches square! They’ll be going into a border for each girls’ cute quilt! Embroidery designs found at:…Continue
Morning to all of you. I just browsed the pictures of all the beautiful, colorful, sometimes whimsical work that you have been doing. If you get a chance check out the pics on the main page-=just click on view all. They are wonderful! So inspiring, too. Thanks for posting them everyone.
Stay comfy and quilty out there.
These are the best new products ever!!
Have you ever wanted a truely FLAT seam? Like when you are doing intricate paper piecing or mini's with 1/8" seams? I mean flat, no curling at all. This is the product for you. Sew the seam, apply the solution using the pen, iron dry. Flat as a fritter and no curling. Almost like folded paper, very crisp, but no lifting of the seam allowance. Wonderful. I think it would work great for the center of a Mariner's Compass, or any of…Continue
I finally tried a Dear Jane Block. I think I made it as shown in Brenda's book, but the A-7 on the CD uses smaller melons and they are about a 1/4 inch from the intersection. My scanner shows all my stitches....grin. I like the real one better mostly because I'm half blind with my glasses off and standing a few feet back it looks almost good.…Continue
