Repairing a quilt, part 2 by Brian Christiansen
Some months ago, I made a post about repairing a quilt that my grandmother had made when I was really little (I think when I was born). I took a look at it, and it requires a bit more work than I originally thought, but I decided to repair it any way. In fact, at one point I considered buying...

Lavender Love Quilt by [email protected]
This is the quilt I have just started on. My colors are different as I am using two prints that are the same but different colors. One a pale yellow background print and the other light blue print. Think I should name mine the Sashing Love Quilt because there is sashing in the blocks and sashing in...

Teaching Quilting by Brian Christiansen
This is kind of a test message, as I am setting up thunderbird for reading news groups, and seeing if it is "better" than XPN newsreader. Well, anyway, this video, from man sewing, one of my favorite you tube channels (perhaps I will do a future post about...

Jumping for Joy or Rather Jumping for Floristas by [email protected]
This quilt is in Quiltmaker magazine Nov/Dec 2016 issue. They show it as a throw but I will make more blocks and am making it wider and longer. These are 9 inch blocks. Original shows frogs but I am making my quilt floral that's why I renamed it. I may put two inner borders on it, one a 2 inch...

Writing my name by Brian Christiansen
I am not announcing that I finally learned how to write my name, I have known how to do that for several years now. However, I think that on the quilt I have talked about repairing, and am currently in the process of doing, instead of making my label that says "Ruth Sherwoood, 1961, Brian...

Concentric squares by Brian Christiansen
On the quilt I am repairing, I am making "prototype squares," and what I mean is that I am working out the best/fastest way to replace the squares I am replacing. I have a presser foot that is for sewing parallel lines. In theory, this sounds real good for making the "concentric squares" that...

Singer 222 for a dollar by Brian Christiansen
The other day I was faffing about online loking at the prices of singer 301's just to see what the price of them might be, I am not really planning on buying one anytime soon. The prices seemed to run between about $80 and $200-some, which seemed to be roughly correlated with whether it was...

Rhoda by Elizabeth Bennefeld
Some of you may remember Rhoda (Rhoda's gallery of quilts, now moved to rhodaberry on wordpress). I am sorry to share with you that Rhoda recently entered into Hospice care at a local nursing home. While she has not participated in this newsgroup for many years, the Google Groups being too...

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...

Sewing for my new apt. and more by [email protected]
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...
