    Re: getting ready for move to coast of NC

    Gorgeous quilt Terry. It's so good to hear from you but I'm sorry things have been stressful. I've always found the beach so therapeutic. Maybe it will be the same for you once you are settled.
  2. Re: Can a hurried Quilter ever be a good Quilter?

    When I first started reading, I was afraid that you were going to say you cut something off, which would have been awful. I think we've all made one of those mistakes and that feeling you get...sheer...

    Barb, did you try CBD cream? Hubs has an arthritic knee that flares up every once in a while and he swears by it.

    Re: A bad case of Quilter's Block

    This is the pattern I just finished...it was my first thought too. I'd love to try the arrowhead pattern you linked. I'll have to spend some time choosing the right fabrics for good contrast. Thanks!
