    Re: Placematsf

    I love Donna's placemat ideas but wondered about puckering if using the pillowcase method. Love your idea Barb. Problem solved.

    Re: Labor Day Greetings! :)

    Julie, my prayers are for you and your search for a care facility. Finding a facility for my mom was the most difficult thing I had to do. I did find a great one in Poland, Ohio not far from where my...

    Re: Layer cakes

    I have cut my own precuts using 108" fabric. I even cut 2&1/2" squares from 108" fabric as well as other precuts. Why did I do that? I really liked the fabric for what I was making and got a lot of...

    Thanks again for posting! I am making this pattern as a Christmas gift for my oldest son. I looked to see if Jenny had posted this tutorial before I started. Now that I have it underway, here it...

    How pretty! I really like how cheery your table runner is. The scalloped border really sets it off nicely too.

    Re: teaching a child to sew

    Thank you for the advice Sharon. There are times when I want to freeze time when she is sewing. I remember one Christmas break when I taught all my young sons to cross stitch. That was fun! They...
  11. Re: Great-Grandbaby Quilt for my Beloved Cousin's First BGGS

    Thank you everyone! I usually use brighter colors for babies yet I really liked this fabric line and when the fabric arrived, I thought the colors might be too soft. However, when I got the blocks...

    Re: Baby Jump Rings

    Your quilt turned out great! It is so cheery. It will make someone so happy to receive it for their very own.

    Re: teaching a child to sew

    I agree. My DGD made one project on that first machine, but then her confidence soared when she realized she could actually sew like grammie and not merely pretend to sew.
  14. Great-Grandbaby Quilt for my Beloved Cousin's First BGGS

    I made this little baby quilt for my cousin's first great-grandchild. He came in the world on May 11. Naturally a first great-grandchild deserves his own quilt. The new parents love it! I love D9P...

    My DGD's mother got her a hand-crank machine and DGD used it for one project. Her mother's brother then got her a New Home/Janome Derby that is actually pretty good. He bought is so she could keep it...

    Re: - Written patterns or not

    I generally cut enough to get started and build my blocks from those pieces. Then I have a "Oh crap" moment when I have to stop sewing and go cut some more, but how much cutting can a body really...
  17. Re: Make a "Geese in Motion" Quilt with Jenny Doan

    This one spoke to me. It said "Stash Buster"!! Another thing I like about it is that it is Accuquilt friendly and I am always on the lookout for those. So this one has been added to my always...

    Re: Fudge it

    There is a saying I learned from my fiance, "Beat it to fit. Paint it to match." That works for me a lot because I am more impatient than perfectionist. I will rip the seam out once and occasionally...

    Bummer. I didn't get the email and didn't see this post until a few moments ago. I'm not sure why emails stopped coming. I even signed up again when they stopped and again the other day, but still...

    Re: Another one finished

    Beautiful job Shirley. I have an American eagle panel that I am afraid to use because I don't want to kill it. You did great.

    BTW...I LOVE your quote. Isn't it the truth???
