There seems to be a big division among quilters as to those who pre-wash their fabrics and those who don't. I have my own feelings and reasons for what I do, but I would love to hear what you feel and why. I pre-wash everything unless it is a…Continue

Dear Santa, define good...

Posted by RB on November 22, 2016 at 4:03pm 2 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. …

Hungarian Quilters' Festival

Posted by Susan Sziva on September 17, 2016 at 12:23pm 4 Comments

At the end of August there were a festival organized by Hungarian Patchwork Guild. Unfortunately I have only three hours to visit it. This was enough only to get a quick impression of how wonderful quilts had been made.

The first exhibition showed the quilts created for the tender of the Hungarian Patchwork Guild. The subject was Chemical Elements. The Grand Prix went to Ildiko Kovacs: Limestone Imprints

The award for the best teamwork went to Foltkoltok Tarsasaga. The name of this group is a wordplay, referring to  the film title Dead Poets Society, changing Dead to Patch.  The title of their quilt is Why?

The best machine quilted piece and the best art quilt was Klara Feledyne Szabo: Colorful Fossils

My favorite one got a special award. Levente Sulyok: Chemical Village. 

You could ask, why chemical? (I hope, you see village :-) ). Then let's take a closer look:…
