    Hi gang! I've been away for a long time, but just finished a quilt I tried to add to my gallery. No go! I'm getting a message that simply says the files didn't load. No hint as to why. I posted...

    Re: Wonky Nine Patch

    :) I'm primarily making this quilt top so I have something new to practice with on my quilting machine. I do a pretty good meander, so I probably won't go that route. I did find a branching leaf...

    Wonky Nine Patch

    Just started the Wonky Nine Patch (using Fons and Porter templates) over the weekend, and already I'm fretting about how I'll quilt it. I'm thinking I want something edge-to-edge but not sure what. ...

    I don't post much these days, but several of y'all provided comments during this journey, so I thought I'd share the outcome. I love this quilt! Fell in love with it the first time I saw Jenny's...
  7. Re: What kind of Christmas tree do you use...Fresh or Artificial???

    We're in our seventies. No grandchildren. Don't really "celebrate" the holidays. I got weary of the labor of decorating and undecorating years ago. But, we have an antique wooden chest upon which...

    Continuous curve with ruler

    Several of you offered suggestions on quilting my current quilt. I'm pretty much following your advice. For one thing, I'm doing continuous curves in the 16-patch blocks. For the first time ever,...

    This is my favorite basting method. But, as others have pointed out...use SCHOOL glue. Washes right out. I have used it full strength and diluted. I think I like the full strength better. Just...
  12. Re: Looking for quilting ideas for Sunny Skies

    Well, here's the top. Lots of thread snipping tonight. Sandwiching tomorrow. Quilting as soon as the threads arrive - probably Tuesday. That gives me some time to practice on a few extra blocks. ...

    Re: Another use for Parchment paper

    Parchment paper is a Godsend! I made sticky buns this morning, and it made rolling the dough soooooo easy! I buy it by the huge rolls at Sams and have several rolls waiting in backup. There is no...
  14. Re: Looking for quilting ideas for Sunny Skies

    All great ideas, ladies! Thank you! I think I am definitely going to use the Angela Waters continuous curve treatment to the triangles. I wasn't seeing them as triangles but just gray negative...

    Re: Starch of Choice?

    I use Faultless spray sizing rather than starch. It's quite similar but imparts just a little bit of smooth finish along with a tiny bit of body. I don't use it all the time - just when the fabric...

    Re: Machine Quilting

    I've had MSQC do four quilts for me, and I have loved each one. Yes...there's a wait. But, y'know what? it's not nearly as long as the 12 years it took me to quilt my longest-lasting UFO. LOL....

    Re: Fabric Choice Quandry - Help Me!

    After much thought, I've settled on something other than what I was considering. Go figure. :)

    Since y'all were not unanimous in the need for a border on this design, I chose a backing that I...

    Re: Fabric Choice Quandry - Help Me!

    I think one of my problems was choosing solids for the 16 patch blocks. Had I gone with prints, I would probably pick one of the prints for the border. But, I love the solids I chose, so I'm going...

    Re: Fabric Choice Quandry - Help Me!

    Hmmmm...well, the problem is I'm trying to decide on fabrics to make the middle. Based on what I use for the borders. So maybe I need to just make the middle and worry about the border later?????

    Re: Different Rotary Cutter

    Looks really clumsy to use. Plus, she ran into her own hand, causing a bobble on that first cut. No thanks. Interesting, though. Might be a workaround for someone who is arthritic and can't hold...
