Sea Glass Quilt by [email protected]
This is my latest quilt and just started it. One I call a no brainer yet time consuming. My quilt will be 4 blocks wide and 5 blocks long. When you add in the 2 1/2 inch sashing it makes the quilt wider. I used mostly mottled colors or mixed together colors and I would have named my quilt Stain...

String Quilts and more by [email protected]
I painted the eyes in on my two fish quilts instead of using buttons. I really don't like buttons on quilts except wall hangings. I used paint that says it is for fabric, wood, glass and etc. Only place big enough was in the living room. Some were all black eyes and others were green with black...

fabric colour of the day: isabelline by Jack Campin[_2_]
From another newsgroup... From Michael Quinion this week: "Isabelline refers to a colour. The dictionaries variously describe it as greyish-yellow, light buff, pale cream-brown, dingy yellowish grey or drab. The Merriam-Webster Unabridged Dictionary tries hardest to tie it down: „a moderate...

2nd Fishy Quilt Top by [email protected]
I had so much material left over that I am making a second fishy quilt. It will be nothing like the first quilt. I had 4 small fish appliqued but didn't not use because they were too small for the block I wanted to make, but found a bigger fish pattern, so that is what I used in the first quilt.....

It's been a long time... by amy in SoCal
Well, tonight the group is quiet. Not what I was expecting. But, then again, many of us do go over to the dark side (FB) more often than here. I am as guilty as anybody! I was hoping to have pictures of my last few projects to share, but my old phone died and along with it, my pictures. I will...

Nascar flags and miniatures by Brian[_3_]
The thread about the jacob's ladder quilt got me to wondering something, but first I will talk about something that I got to wondering while thinking about that. Suppose you are making a quilt for a bigtime Nascar fan. The most obvious and perhaps easiest is to make a checkerboard of black and...

Jacobs Ladder Quilt by [email protected]
Hello Brian, Yes, this is the quilt I am making but I made my half squares differently than what they show. Make 8 at one time. I used 2 different materials but in same color range for the blocks. I really think it needs sashing but I don't want to use the regular 2 1/2 inch but a little...

I have not done much sewing lately except for my apt. I made new Valances for the kitchen and dinning room and my other valances for the 2 bedrooms and living room was able to use the old ones and didn't even have to alter them. I also made place mats and napkins to match. I don't like curtains...

EU flag motif fabric by Jack Campin[_2_]
Google is not finding this for me. I'm sure there must be such a thing as blue fabric with a close repeat of the EU stars. Good cotton so it would make a shirt. All I can find is photoshops of such designs or actual flags, and no I don't intend to wrap myself in a 3'x5' piece of...

OT A New Reason to Sing in the Shower by Night Mist
I generally sing in the shower, and the kitchen, and my studio, and just about anywhere I happen to be. Well it has been a wet summer so far, and I am more than a bit allergic to mold. So my chest is full, my head is stuffed, my throat is tight, and I am in no fit state to sing nursery rhymes...

OT - Chocolate cupcake recipe? by Johanna Gibson
I was all set to make chocolate cupcakes, but my American cookbook doesn't have a recipe for them! How can this be? It has various recipes for muffins... which leads me to wonder: What is the difference between a muffin and a cupcake? Anyway, I know many of you love to bake, so can someone help...

BRICK-A-BRACK by [email protected]
This quilt is from Quick Quilts, April/May 2014 and a quick one for sure. I used left over scraps. Was not happy with the size, so made the center rectangles rows longer and wider and adjusting the sides accordingly. Did this while packing for my big move. My move is over now, I don't ever want to...

The Big Move by [email protected]
I will not be posting for a while because I am moving within the city of Pocatello, Idaho, 1 of next month. Just didn't want you all to be concerned about what happened to me. Maybe we should all move every 5 years, just so we can get rid of all the junk we accumulate. Just call me...

Hi all, I would like to know what is the best material to use for such a wall - would a flannelette sheet be alright? I am setting up a new sewing room (which does not have my computer and and all my family history files in it - yay!) and have room for a design wall. Thanks in advance for any...

Misc. Sewing Projects/Half Square Quilt by [email protected]
I did finish the Emerald Wave chevron quilt. Been trying to use up my left overs here and there. I have three dog/cat mats started and waiting to get some thin batting for centers. I had extra blocks from the Chevron and took them apart and made hots pads which still need the binding to sew by...
