"Hi Joyce, Thanks for your inquiry regarding flannel. We were advised that 100 % cotton fabric would be best as these Kennel Quilts get a lot of wear and washings. Thank you."

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.

Quilting Goals

Posted by jaci lawson on September 25, 2016 at 9:45pm 3 Comments

Hello ladies,

Thank you for your welcoming notes.

I have been getting ready for our local guild quilt show and updating my website. Today I met with two friends to work on creating a nautical row by row quilt. I had also found some adorable cupcake panels in PA last month and brought one home for each of us. We like to sew together every few months and some times we work on the same project.

I belong to several quilting bees - an art quilters bee, a bee to finish ufo's (who doesn't have those) and a new bff bee. The bff bee started because all the bees in our guild were pretty much filled and our new members were so disappointed. They had all this enthusiasm and no bee, so we started one for them and it has been so much fun! This is the 2nd bee I have started and I have to say it is a little uncomfortable wondering if anyone will want to come and if they will like working on what I think they might, finding a place to meet, etc., but it is so worth it. It is a chance to spend real sewing and planning time with people who share your love of quilting.

So pretty much every week I have at least one evening a week with quilting friends!

My gardening chances are winding down for the year, but I have jars and jars of apples and apple peelings from our apple tree slowly turning into apple cider vinegar (hopefully!) and homemade apple cider in the fridge.

I also have the New England Patriots to watch again every week and 3 beautiful, extraordinary, and talented grandchildren to take on fall walks and take pumpkin picking. I was born in California and raised in Alabama among other places, but I married a man from Massachusetts and have been a New Englander for the last 31 years and I can't imagine ever wanting to live anywhere else now!

A day with a local guild

Posted by Susan Sziva on September 25, 2016 at 10:11am 5 Comments

Yesterday I was a guest of the local guild called Budafolt. (Buda is a part of the town, and "folt" means patch.)  I would join to it with love, but they meet on Thursday mornings when I work. I usually visit them when they organize an open day and a small exhibition every September. 

Members of the guild make cakes, snacks, and offers tea and beverages. Every year they give a small present at the entrance - this year it was a small bag (pyramid) filled with lavender and rice. (Rice is for stability.)

And you get a kit with all materials and a pattern. It can be sewn there or at home. This time it was a cute key chain

There was a new and  nice initiative: give a present and get a present. Everyone had sewn something small for this event. It was a bit early, but I made an EPP wreath ornament (pattern from here) for Christmas. …
