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...

Quilt Show and Auction by Alice in PA[_3_]
My DH and I went to the Kutztown (PA) Folk Festival today. I checked out all the quilts in their "Quilt Barn" and stopped by the auction later on. They just happened to be auctioning one of the First Place winners. It went for $11,000!!! Quite a roar and round of applause went up from the...

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...

UFOs by Jo Gibson[_3_]
I'm pretty sure that everyone here (apart from Ragmop) has a couple of UFOs, probably a few more than they would care to admit or would like and I once again wonder.... why is it that we have UFOs? For myself, one quilt is waiting for me to remember how to do a seamless join on the binding, and...

OT this IS funny by Polly Esther[_5_]
I was thinking Mr. Esther and I would enjoy some sort of GPS system for our little trips. So. I Googled: GPS system for seniors. I got: a system for tracking seniors. Do they put a tracking chip beneath the skin of the old folks like the vet does for family pets? I reckon we are...

diamond question by Karen, Queen of Squishies[_2_]
I am insetting nine-patches between the points of my diamond stars. What do I do about this? I'm worried it will mess up the next step. Obviously this quilt is just *that* much beyond my skill level. But we march on. http://home-and-garden.webshots.com/photo/2713128790038007762SunpMr Karen,...

OT I want to get back to quilting and sewing! by NightMist
But stuff keeps happening! My dad is talking about driving to NY. He does have some short term memory loss, and recent events have aggravated the problem, whether permanently or temporarily we will not know for a while. The thought of him driving 1500 miles alone right now scares the bejeezus...

Yikes! Now I've done it! (it's good, I think) by Sunny[_2_]
I've volunteered to make the permanent banners for the little chapel of our church, which is undergoing a complete re-do. New carpet, new drapes, new backing for the cross (lots of grumpy parishioners who hate change) and now I'm going to make the banner. I drew up a possible design ... and I...

Another experiment with Clorox Bleach Pen by Leslie & The Furbabies in MO.
For those of you interested in this process, I tried another experiment with both of the two tips and the "spread factor". Also, the batik I used was pre-washed and dried with a fabric softener sheet. I don't know if the softener has any effect on the final results. The first two pics are the...

Prewound bobbins by Alice in PA[_3_]
I think they're the greatest thing around!!! Do any of you use them? Since the thread is fine, they last forever! They're fantastic when doing free-motion quilting.....less stops to change the bobbin. My sewing machine repair guy gave me one to try, and I went back and bought a box of 100!...
