quilt spotting by claudia
Good morning everyone! My day already started 3 hours ago (and it's Saturday!!). While waiting for the rest of the family to wake up, I'm playing around on the computer. And I've had it with facebook games so I thought of something else: how many of us can name tv series or movies in which quilts...

Einstein was right by Polly Esther[_5_]
You know - that smart old man that said insanity was doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. I had a box full of somewhat neatly cut squares and strips and thought I'd make blocks and sort of diminish the scrap collection. Wrong. While I was putting...

OT NightMist is Happy Dancing! by NightMist
At least metaphorically. Had my follow up appointment at Roswell today. As many of you probably already know ovarian cancer has a dismal mortality rate. Primarily because it is usually not discovered until it is well advanced, generally stage 3 or 4. Considering the size of the tumor I was...

fabric amounts for quilts by Taria
So I come across a neat quilt in Fons and Porter's magazine (sept./oct. 2008) It is called Mariner's in a Pickle. It could work for what I want to do. Under the materials list is 2-3/4 yds of 17 prints. 2 yds. for binding and 14 yards for backing. That comes to a whopping 62-3/4 yards. My...

Just a happy story by Polly Esther[_5_]
Do you remember a little more than a year ago when I made Puss in Bonnets for an expected grand niece? The quilt was purrfect until I washed it and the batik backing turned everything (including the zebra striped kitty, the washing machine drum and my kitchen counter) a rowdy pink. No telling...

Making crib bumpers by Michelle G.
First of all, I realize they are recommending that we don't use crib bumpers at all; but, my GD is 16 months old and her mom wants new bumper pads. I think she's too old for bumpers but. . . Anyway, can anyone tell me what to use as the padding for the bumper pads? I've tried thick batting...

Home Again Home Again Jiggety Jig by NightMist
I am returned! The hospital finally let me out and I bolted for home. Well, close anyway. They said I could leave and I kind of gimped into a wheelchair and rolled out the door. My stay was full of trials and travails. At first they said I was doing great and could probably go home last...

is there a reason for becoming officially "not for profit"? by Musicmaker
I'd like to begin providing quilts, both lap and bed, to the cancer center my husband has been going to for chemo, and I don't know if I should just make a page on my blog about it, and hope people contribute orphan quilt tops and quilts, or become an actual non profit organization with all the...

OT-Pink on Friday by Steven Cook
I am SOOO excited about school tomorrow. No, not because it is the deadline for Senior Pictures for the Yearbook, which it is. Nor because the Senior Survey deadline is tomorrow, because it is. Nor that the deadline for the Senior Tributes need to be in from Parents, which it is. My life...

I wonder? by Pat S
I have never before questioned those respected quilters who say that they always do a double fold binding, because the edge always gets more wear. Well, I am giving a workshop next Saturday, on Borders and Bindings, and I was just typing out my notes for it. I was giving detailed instructions...

I've been playing by Polly Esther[_5_]
with Dimensional Curved Patchwork. It goes pretty much like cathedral windows piecing. The folds are peeled back and stitched so there's a curve rather than a straight line. The designer is Annette Ornelas, QNM Nov 2002. That was fun but not enough to make more than 3 blocks of those. ...

OT More on the NightMist Saga by NightMist
I am all poked full of holes, have three hospital bracelets, and my back is just killing me from laying about on gurneys and hospital beds. So Wednesday I went and had my bloodwork done, and the ultrasounds, and the chest x-ray. If I have to fast for tests I am by gosh only going to do it...
