quilter dilemma by Taria
On the blog here for Sept. 9: http://sisterschoice.typepad.com/sisters_choice_quilts/ What a bad situation. I am glad I don't send my quilts out but for those that do communication is a big deal. Taria

Photogenic memory by Polly Esther[_5_]
Yes. I know. The expression is photographic memory - but I have learned how to use the camera for memory. One of the Christmas tree skirts began with a printed panel. Of course, none of the blocks were straight or square. Step 1 was to cut them apart and attempt to square them. Step...

I Decided to Pack It In. by John
Well. If I am going to pack it in, I will need a bag to pack it into. Right? Here you are presented with a Weekender Man Bag that is done up in the Log Cabin Pattern. See where this whole "Man Bag" thing is going. What could be more "manly" than the Log Cabin Pattern? Right? Rough hewn work by the...

OT Slow cooker (crock pot) recipes by Lizzy Taylor
I have a slow cooker / crock pot and should and would like to use it more. My problem is that the gravy is always very thin when I do meaty casseroles and such and then I have to mess about thickening it which seems to negate the idea of an easy one pot meal. Do any of you have a favourite...

Another project done by IMS[_6_]
There is a very dedicated nurse/administrator who has done a LOT (more than I could ever imagine in fact) to help me deal with the BC surgery and treatment side effects. I made a table runner for her, which I just finished yesterday. ...

Cinnamon (NOT OT) by Sartorresartus
I was reading somewhere over the past week or two about using ground cinnamon spice for quilt marking. Over the past couple of weeks I have been marking out a new wholecloth. It's been a pain. However, I learned some stuff. I usually use either a Roxanne marker (Quilter's choice) or a...

New quilt finished - pix by Bronnie[_2_]
I have just finished a Japanese fabric inspired quilt called "Kirichigae" which means 'changed cut'. Named after the block (#39) in the book "Japanese Quilt Blocks, to mix & match" by Susan Briscoe. The block comprises a set of four 6in. blocks using a 4" centre and striped fabric which is...

Gorgeous work, as usual, Steve. The colors just sing. I like the style of the birds, in particular. Just lovely. Btw, we're all getting older. ;) Sunny

Back to School by Lizzy Taylor
After 7 long weeks the boys are both back in school as of this morning. Now I can work longer and more productive hours at work which I hope will translate to better down-time at home including more quilting and catching up on stuff. I feel almost sane! Lizzy

OT OT how to destroy by Polly Esther[_5_]
I need to destroy a computer. It's not that I'm angry or anything. I just need it destroyed to ashes. There's nothing on it that would be particularly useful to the law enforcement drones - just stuff that's personal and I don't want to share. Do I take a screwdriver and axe,...

How To Become a Basket Case! by John
This is the last of these things I am going to do. They are just too hard to sew. When you have to sew together 4 layers of canvas, two layers of batting and Pellon stiffener, it is more than a simple mechanical sewing machine can handle. I had to hand sew the bottom to the side by rotating the...

OT no brakes on Hurricanes by Polly Esther[_5_]
I'm hoping all our friends on the Atlantic coast even inland as much as 200 miles are paying serious attention to Hurricane Earl. Hurricanes do not roar up to the beach and slam on brakes. They weaken just a little when they hit land but they spawn tornadoes and all manner of misery. ...

Mystery Bag Revealed. by John
Ok. So it really isn't a mystery. But it might have been a mystery, if I could have completed it as one. Let me explain. This Large, Shoulder Tote/Weekender bag, started out to be a Back Pack of the Bergen Rucksack type. I bought a bunch of heavy weight cotton canvas for the structural foundation...

Needing Grinch Christmas authority by Polly Esther[_5_]
What was I thinking? Our youngest daughter, DDIL, Grand and BF asked for Christmas tree skirts back last December and I thought that would be such a happy, easy gift for all 4 of them. The one on the design wall just now is for DD. She is such a fan of The Grinch. The stash had some...

help me assemble my quilt frame by Dawn
I've had this for *years* in the garage and have no idea how to put it together. http://www.reddawn.net/temp/quiltframe/index.html There are bolts with wing nuts all over it. The wide piece across the middle bolts into the narrow 3-pc sections on each end, there are clear marks where it has gone...
