Glue binding the Sharon Schamber way.

Someone asked for photos of what glue binding looks like. First I want to offer the disclaimer that binding with glue does not make the process faster. It probably takes about the same amount of time as hand stitching the binding. But I like it…Continue

It is a LOVE--HATE relationship!

Posted by Nancy - Cat Lady (TQPM staff) on October 21, 2017 at 4:23pm 2 Comments

I LOVE the accuracy I get when I use larger pieces of fabric to sew patches together to make certain shapes required for some blocks.

I HATE all the extra time spent trimming them down to the correct size.

Did I mention, I LOVE the resulting size accuracy?

As I said, it is a LOVE--HATE relationship!

Encouragement and Support

Posted by Bonny Peters (PeePs Rep) on July 6, 2017 at 3:30pm 2 Comments

I came to quilting later than some but earlier than others. It is a forgiving and demanding hobby. It can provide frustration and accomplishment. Some quilting is slow and tedious but some is fast and carefree. The colors used can be somber and sedate or wild and ecstatic. These are the things that I love about this wonderful obsession I have. Having a supportive and embracing community such as Pattern Pastiche is an added bonus. No matter what, this group makes lemonade from everything. The…

Help finding block 26

Posted by Debbie on June 3, 2017 at 5:11pm 6 Comments

Ok, I cannot find the block 26 and need help in discovering it's hidden location. Fortunately I  read through the rest of the notes and was able to locate #24 by going 2 clicks away from home. Does anyone have clues to help me, please.

Aliens from Side-Track

Posted by Nancy - Cat Lady (TQPM staff) on April 28, 2017 at 4:44pm 5 Comments

I wrote this as part of my entry in the "April 2017 Quilting Goals" discussion group, but thought I would also make it a blog post here.

My husband and I have a running joke: "I am often abducted by aliens from the planet Side-Track." We have determined I must be a very good candidate for what-ever experiments, or other learning experiences, they have in mind. Inevitably, I start out to do something, and find myself completing other tasks along the way. I eventually do get my original…

What pics can I post on Pattern Pastiche?

Posted by RB on March 15, 2017 at 7:03pm 9 Comments

Someone just asked this question. It's a good question and, as with most things, I have an opinion I want to share. ;-}

I love TQPM and the great patterns I've collected and made, and lessons I've learned by reading it. I love it when people post pics of the projects they've finished that were first published in the magazine. Part of the fun of quilting is seeing the way someone else envisioned a pattern that had never occurred to me.

I also love Pattern Pastiche. I love the…
