Anniversary gift

Posted by Tomara Rhoden on April 7, 2017 at 8:00pm 3 Comments

I have the best hubby. He got me EQ7 for a late anniversary gift. He seen I had it on my wish list. Think maybe I'll add a long arm quilter to it.Maybe he will get that for our 45th in 2 years, Now have to learn how to use it.

What pics can I post on Pattern Pastiche?

Posted by RB on March 15, 2017 at 7:03pm 8 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 inspiration I get and the friends I've made. Part of that is seeing all the fun things our members are making. There seems to be endless variety of quilts and bags and toys and even clothes and cats that appear in the photo vaults of PP. I browse them regularly. I'm excited each time a new photo pops up because I know someone is opening part of their heart for all of us to look into, and I'm grateful to be trusted with that whether it's a prize winning quilt or a silly pet.

Thanks Cindy and staff for making PP a safe place to share and learn. My time here has drawn me out of sewing alone in my basement, into a whole new joyful world of quilting. Most of my quilting friends live inside my computer, but I enjoy the association I have with them as much as my Real Life friends. Please friends, share your quilty successes, no matter where they came from!

PS. No one should have to quilt alone. Come join us at chat times (listed in the far right column of the main page) for instant help if you need it, and maybe a laugh or two with new friends.

The Opportunity Quilt

Posted by Nancy - Cat Lady (TQPM staff) on February 27, 2017 at 2:52pm 7 Comments

 Every year my local quilt group makes an opportunity quilt that someone will have the privilege to take home with them at the end of our February quilt show.

This is the quilt that was made for the 2017 show:


Different members of the group were asked to make the hand appliquéd blocks.  Then the opportunity quilt committee set the blocks together and another member of the group did the exquisite custom machine quilting.  You cannot see it that well in this photo, but the outer edges of the quilt are scalloped and are finished with a double row of piping in lieu of a binding.  And no, I was not part of the membership that made this quilt, although I have made many pieced blocks for other opportunity quilts and was the chair and designer of a previous year's quilt.

At the end of the show, as the granddaughter of this year's committee chair was getting ready to draw the ticket out of the drum, I went to the microphone so I would be ready to announce the new owner's name when it was made known.  Someone called my name, and since I saw the ticket had been handed to the ticket committee chair, I asked "Who won?"  The answer: "Nancy Noah won."  Needless to say I was, and still am, in shock.

Like many people comment, I always get a ticket, but I never win anything.  

But one never knows.  The next time it may be your name that is called.

Donating quilts

Posted by Penny Brien on February 9, 2017 at 12:14pm 4 Comments

I love making quilts for a purpose.  Actually I just love making quilts for any reason, but especially if there is a purpose behind the quilt.

I have so many scraps left over from quilts that I have made for family and friends that I am now on a crusade to reduce the scrap stash in my sewing room.  That means making lots, and lots of quilts but having no final purpose for them.

This brought me to the conclusion that I should start donating quilts again so I have started looking through the small pieces of fleece I have and then making quilts according to the size fleece I have to back it (since I hate piecing a backing).  I have found I can now make 12 baby quilts from sizes 36 - 48 x 56 and 7 lap quilts approximately 55 x 68.  Awesome, but what about all those pieces 15x36 or 20x30 - well I found a solution for that too.  Kennel quilts!

I have joined the kennel quilt retreat in March and am stockpiling all of my backing pieces that would fit that bill.  I have contacted our local humane society and they are excited to get donations of quilts for the rescue animals and they told me that they need sizes 12 x 18 and 20 x 29 - so I am ecstatic because now I can make two sizes of kennel quilts and get rid of a ton of scrap pieces of fleece as well as all those smaller pieces of batting.  Hopefully along the way I will also acquire some new piecing techniques and find some new quilt blocks that I love.

I have several quilts that I have made in the last 6 months that I have not found a home for and those are going to our local charity to help homeless individuals in our school district.  They are going to receive several lap quilts next week and 3 twin size rag quilts that I made for grandchildren who decided they wanted a different color after they were made (it's not just women who constantly change their minds).  

I do not belong to a quilt guild or any kind of quilt group so this is all stuff I am doing on my own - however I am…

Dear Santa, define good...

Posted by RB on November 22, 2016 at 4:03pm 4 Comments

I plan to ask Santa for quilt designing software for Christmas. I'm looking for suggestions regarding EQ7 vs Quilt pro, or anything else you are using and love. And is a mini version good to start with or should I just jump in with the grown up version? Lastly, about how much should I tell Santa to expect to pay? Is there a coupon or other discount out there? I want to give Santa all the information I can so we can both be happy.
