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...

Question about Stack'n'whack by Ursula Schrader
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...

OT Laminate flooring by Leslie & The Furbabies in MO.
I want black and white (diagonal) checkerboard-pattern flooring in my kitchen and bathroom in my little cottage. I've never had laminate flooring and have concerns about whether it will be slippery if used in the kitchen with the miriad possiblilites of spills and in the bathroom with water...

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...
