"Beg" Quilt from Estelle in UK by Tia Mary
I have finally started work on "jazzing up" the "Beg" quilt I received from Estelle in the UK. A bit of background, now. It's been about 1 1/2 years since Estelle posted here about a quilt top she had finished and she **really** didn't like it and was going to get rid of it. I posted a nice,...

Basting by Sally Swindells[_3_]
I've just cut a batting for a lap quilt, and as I always do for this I used a king-size bed as the cutting surface (no sheet and very taut mattress cover, and no bits to adhere like the carpet and I can stand-up afterwards). It suddenly struck me that this would be an ideal basting table as I...

OT Women's soccer finals by Ginger in CA
Wow! What an event! I am disappointed there were so many shots-on-goal by the American team without success. But everyone played with their hearts. They are all such fantastic athletes. Ginger in CA back to designing/pulling fabric

Can't be that bad by Polly Esther[_5_]
I wanted to show you the quilt block I'm using and went over to quilters cache to see what its name was. There was really no need to be quite so insulting but the name is Simple Star. Okay. It is about as simple as they get but something mysterious or historical would have at least sounded...

Hello all, most of you probably remember the Singing Quilter: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XzoL7ddTEnA&feature=player_embedded Now, I've grown really fond of the quilt shown at 3:24 and I wonder what makes the charm of this item. Is it the wonderful contrast between the green and the nice...

Multiple half-square triangles by Pat S
I wonder if someone could kindly remind me of the printed paper (I think?) that enables many two-colour half-square triangles to be made by simply sewing along the correct lines and then cutting apart? I expect I could draw my own - if I sat down and concentrated on which lines to sew and which...

Half square triangles by Sally Swindells[_3_]
I've just started a Christmas wall-hanging which is completely half square triangles. Its a Christmas Tree so the right side is a mirror image of the left. All the fabrics are dark - no pales or whites. My dilemma is which is the best way to press the seams - to one side or open. The quilting...

Summer Wedding by Jo Gibson[_3_]
I think it was Polly's sharp eyes which spotted my casual mention of a wedding. First, we planned to get married in 2009 but a baby came along faster than we anticipated and I refused to get married looking like a white satin beach ball. So it was postponed until 2010, which was handy because...

Wal-Mart by Alice in PA[_3_]
Our local Wal-Mart is putting a fabric department back in! There really isn't room for it anymore, so they pushed all the "snack aisles" together, to squeeze it it! So far, they just have notions and a lot of ribbon, but the racks are set up for fabric. Should be interesting to see what they...

OT-but you are such a friendly bunch by Ursula Schrader
Hello all, I've often seen requests for prayers here, and sent good thoughts out myself, even though I'm not the strongest quilter on earth. Now I'd like to ask your good wishes for me, that is, actually my little daughter. She has to have her adenoids out, her tonsils minimized and her...
