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...

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...

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...

Emerald Waves Quilt by [email protected]
This quilt pattern is in Quick Quilts magazine Apr/May 2014. It is named Emerald Waves. Not sure why they called it that because it is actually "V's, alternating white with different shades of greens" Maybe Brian can give us the address so you can see it. I made a sample and decided it was too...

Machine grease by Gosh! by Night Mist
So I was cleaning and oiling my machines today (always after the worst of the cold is past)and I tripped over the machine DD1 brought over for me to fiddle the tension on. So I dragged it out thinking it was her Morse, but in fact it was her Singer 327. I decided that before fiddling anything I...

Cannot get backing off Printed Treasures Paper by tnhelen
I have done some quilt labels on Printed Treasures transfer paper that was run through my inkjet printer. The problem is that the backing will not peel off! It's making quite the mess. Any secrets to getting it off easier? Thanks. Helen

I just need to sew the 2 1/2 inch square rows of sashing and then sew the 4 square rows that make up the borders This has taken me longer than I thought it would. A lot of work but well worth the effort. I should finish in a couple of days. Sandy$
