  1. Re: OK, Ryan, parental pride doesn't stop when they grow up!

    That shirt quilt is amazing. There will be lots of tears when the man's widow sees it. What an awesome tribute to him!

    Re: Mom's visit from absent son

    Family dynamics can be very complicated. Sometimes relationships are fractured beyond repair. Yes, your SIL has to live with her choice to not reach out to her dying mother, but it must have been the...

    Re: Mom's visit from absent son

    Suzanne, it sounds as though you have done all that is humanly possible to be the peacemaker in the family. It's hard to know what your brother and SIL's motivations are. You are wise to realize that...

    Re: Seeking Advice What to do when?

    Does it look wonky? If not, cut those borders at 93 inches and ease them where necessary. If, however, your quilt is noticeably wonky, you might have to address the wonkiness at the source.

  8. Re: Have you cut the cord with cable TV? Looking for advice

    I went really extreme when I cut the cord--not just the cable, but the TV as well. I haven't owned a television in more than 25 years. So reading about Hulu and Prime and Roku, that's like a foreign...

    Re: Quilt binding with words

    I have that same Bernina model. Besides various fonts, it has stitch patterns for several graphics. I could see using the sewing machine graphic on a quilt binding. Thanks for sharing!

    Re: Tuesday Trivia: Nebraska

    I have visited Carhenge. I've been to Stonehenge, too, but this one is funnier. And I love the Nebraska capital building -- it has a tall, narrow tower. Lots of beautiful mosaic artwork. The...

    Re: finished block question

    The HST paper measurements are for finished size. 2 inch HST paper produces HSTs that are 2-1/2" from raw edge to raw edge.

    K9mama, I am unclear when you say that the pinwheel blocks finish at...

    Re: Thread Racks

    I don't particularly like keeping thread out where it can get dusty and be exposed to light. For my embroidery thread, I got some plastic boxes with a hinged lid. Inside are two trays that the cones...

    Jocelyn, congratulations on your retirement! You taught that PA a valuable lesson about how to treat patients. You may call it being sassy, I call it being a patient advocate. Thank you for speaking...

    Re: Do you think it's a mouse?

    When I moved into my house in 1993, I found a garter snake in the basement near the furnace. He was immediately relocated to the back yard. It was October, and I figured the snake was just looking...

    Re: what are those called

    Knickers is an old term, from perhaps 100 years ago. Bloomers is another old term.

    Kaydee,

    An exterminator once told me that sometimes mice will chew through the spray foam insulation. He recommended stuffing the hole with steel wool or a wire mesh, then using the spray foam to...

    Carlie Wolf, I had to laugh when I read your post. Achieving a 1/4" seam is so crucial, and I struggled even with a 1/4" foot for my old machine. I started looking for a new machine, but had the same...

    Jocelyn, when you win a blue ribbon at your state fair, it is more than okay to say you are a "pretty good" hand quilter. :icon_bigsmile: When hand quilting, I too can only quilt towards me. But I...
