Glue binding the Sharon Schamber way. 2 Replies

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

If you had a birthday this week, and I missed wishing You a Happy Birthday, here it is : "HAPPY BIRTHDAY".  I was at a quilt retreat with no computer.  Sorry I missed you this year.  Hope it was a great day and full of "pieceful" memories.

Glad to join the group. Looking forward to doing an appliqued quilt again. The ladt one I did was a baby quilt. This will be so much more challenging.

It is a LOVE--HATE relationship!

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.
