    Re: ...it will be new to me soon!

    Re: Where are all of our men quilters?

    I visit every day just don't have much to say. I read all the posts and check out the Show and Tell. The fact that no one remembers me is fine with me. Mark Twain said it was better to remain silent...

    Three bears

    I saw the bears that Bababoo posted and I decided to make one for a new member of our family. I got a little carried away and ended up making three. The one on the left is made from material left...

    I'll try that next time. Thanks. I had trouble with the upper part of the fabric bowing in the slit. Not sure why. Debbie Shore has video on you tube that shows how to put a zipper in a slit. I'll...
  9. Re: Here's The NEWEST MSQC From Jenny .....and.....Me & My Sister!

    I just made the template 36 degrees. It is 1 inch wide at the bottom and is 5 3/4 inches tall. This gave me a template that worked well with fat quarters. The pattern is a standard dresden plate that...

    Clutches

    These were made with the free pattern from Bagstock Designs called the Sunshine Wristlet. The faux leather was purchased by my wife many years ago for an unknown purpose. I had never put a zipper in...

    New guard dog

    Don't let the small size and cute face fool you. My niece and her family will sleep a lot better with this viscous creature guarding the house. It is half Maltese/Shih Tzu.

    It is not hard if you have done "Y" seams before. The 1/2 log cabins must be square and the distance across the diagonal must be accurate. This pattern is copy righted or I would share more. The log...
