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,...

Long time, no see!!! by amy in SoCal
Thought I would stop by and say "hi y'all!!". It's been so long since I've posted here. I usually spin through FB and "like" just about everything. Rarely have the time to post anywhere these days. Hope all the old crowd is doing well! I will have to spill all my escapades and adventures later...

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...

New Home My Excel 15S lost manual by Kelley Greene
Hi folks, after 25 years the manual disappeared this week and we cannot find it anywhere. I about tore the place apart last night. It apparently sprouted legs and ran off. Looking online I found places that advertised the manual but when you get to the site they don't have it. This is so...

"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...

My Scrappy Quilt by [email protected]
I just started this quilt because I saw a picture of it in a magazine, so with no pattern I graphed it. It is a very simple quilt. Will try to explain how it is made and you can make any size. 1st a 5 1/2 inch square for center, then added two (3 x 5 1/2 inches) to the sides, another set of two...

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]

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...

On a Roll now/ Curves and Steps/Bear Mountain quilt by [email protected]
I just finished a quicky quilt, one of those no brainer kind. It was called Curves and Steps. You just cut 5 1/2 x 10 1/2 inches rectangles, then take 5 strips of 2 1/2 inch and sew them together(I did change the strips around from row to row) and cut them 5 1/2 inches. Those two sections are...

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

Ohio Star and Snails Trail Done by [email protected]
The Ohio Star quilt turned out really good and fast since it had 15 inch blocks. Then I started Snails Trail or a version of it. It has been called Galaxy and Andromedia too so don't really know the original version. It is a very colorful quilt, just lots of bright colors. Wish I could take a...

The Ohio Star Quilt by [email protected]
I finished my Paisley Churn Dash quilt and had a problem when putting it together. The blue I had made the Churn Dash blocks did not go at all with the Paisley material so I remade those blocks using gold mottled and green. So then brought more material for the blue Churn Dash blocks, so got it...
