OT Finally! Actively house shopping by Night Mist
As most of you may grok based on my posting history, the house I live in has been going all to heckies for better than a decade. I have finally gotten my family to agree that we must move. What is more I have convinced them at long last that it will be more economically sensible to buy. Between...

Different Butterfly Quilt by [email protected]
This quilt is not the batik material that I used before. This time I just used 2-5 1/2 inch print squares for front wings, then another 2-5 1/2 inch solid/or mini print squares of contrasting material for back wings and then drew a line crosswise on each 2 1/2 inch white Kona material squares(need...

Butterfly Batik Quilt by [email protected]
Hello Barbara, Thank you for your comments about making quilts. Is this the only quilt or fabric newsgroup that you know of?? It just seem like some have left our newsgroup. Just hope Brian never leaves because I depend on his help so much. Sandy$

Kindred Pinwheel by [email protected]
Have a couple of comments to make about this quilt. They should of spent more time developing the pattern as there is too much waste of background material. The way the pinwheels are made, when you sew them together as blocks, some of your points are actually sewn off when you connect the blocks....

Sometime in the past, I suppose, I started making a pair of gi pants for a martial arts class I was in at the time, which I did not finish (the pants, not the martial arts class). A few days ago, I found the pieces of it, 2 legs that had the inseam sewn on each leg, but the legs had not yet...
