Repairing a quilt by Brian[_3_]
My philosophy of quilting is that it is both a fine art and a practical art. The fine art portion is that I think even a "stash buster" quilt should somewhat be coordinated in the colors/patterns chosen, as judged by the quiltmaker. The practical art part is that quilts are meant to be used...

Catching up on other projects by [email protected]
Thought I better clue everyone in on what I am doing now. I have made two sets of 4 place mats/napkins for my kitchen and didn't like either one, so they will go to the Senior Centers craft show along with those hot pads I make after every quilt to get rid of extra fabric. I also finished pin...

Pine Trees and squares by [email protected]
I found this picture of a quilt in a magazine or quilt flyer. It is very simple except for the pine trees. There are 16 squares in one block and then the pine tree block. I have never made a pine tree before, so this looks like a challenge for me. Since I have only a picture and no instructions,...

back from retreat by Julia in MN[_5_]
I just spent about 4 days at a quilting retreat at a lovely camp in northern Wisconsin. I had a great time and got quite a bit accomplished. About 7 years ago, I took a "design a mariner's compass" workshop with Gail Garber at the Minnesota Quilt Show. I completed the center and added one...

"sea silk", aka byssus from Sardinia by Jack Campin[_2_]
I doubt this stuff is ever going to feature in a quilt, but it's the most remarkable story about a textile craft I've read in a long time: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-33691781 I like the way it is not a commodity. A lot us treat our quilts the...

Those Flying Geese by [email protected]
Hello All, I did some testing on making flying geese. I first used 3 7/8th and found the line did not match on the geese wing piece's so you do have to use 2 1/2, 3 1/2 and etc. I also tried different background fabrics and found that Kona fabric was the best and you can buy it at JoAnn's...

Hot Pads and more by [email protected]
Had computer problems last Sunday and google made me open a new account with new user name and password or I could not get into my e-mail, think the same thing happened last year about this same time. Now I have to notify all my friends of the new e-mail address. At least they have not bothered...

Anniversary by Nann[_2_]
Twenty years ago yesterday -- August 2, 1995: my first post to RCTQ. I lived in Fargo then. The public television station offered inexpensive internet (email) access -- two hours a day. The service included a range of UseNet Newsgroups, among them RCTQ. I was a novice at both quilting and the...

Bear Mountain Quilt by [email protected]
Am I the only one that has these bad days where everything you do is wrong? I got my two different blocks done and the blocks that I did the applique on gave me the beginning of my problems. The applique made them shrink so when I put the two blocks together I am short by say 2/8 inch. Have you...

NuStyle quilting machine by [email protected]
My wife has a chance to buy a used Nustyle model 228 quilting machine, about 10 years old. The price is good, but I'm wondering if anyone has any good, or bad opinions on it. She is a home user, and is doing this for a hobby. We do not need a production machine. Thank you. Ed
