Anvil Chorus Quilt by [email protected]
In McCall's quilting magazine Sept./Oct. 2013 page 86 is the Anvil Chorus quilt I am in the process of making. I plan on changing the quilt a little by putting just 2 1/2 in rows sewn together as strips for sashing and a 4 patches all around the outer quilt as a border. The quilt calls for 2 1/2...

Scarlet Serenade by Helen[_2_]
I have finally gotten around to this pattern and I have done the block 3 times and every one is 10 1/4 inches. I have tried batting and without batting still the same. If I continue will all the blocks compensate and fit in the end? I have the new Bernina 16 embroidery machine and the design...

Mega Quilter grinding noise by Debbie Dempsky
I've had my Mega Quilter for about 4 years. Some days I love it. Some days I wonder what it would look like if I threw it out the second floor of my house and had it land at the bottom of the pool. Last week it suddenly started to make a horrible grinding noise. I ran it long enough for my...

Quilted jacket by Brian[_3_]
Several years ago I made myself a quilted jacket (https://www.flickr.com/photos/brian0908/, album = quilted jacket). I took the pictures with my phone, so they are not "great." Even where I live, Tucson, AZ, it gets cold enough where I need to wear this relatively heavy jacket some of the...

OT Stove Mouse Wins! now: The Revenge of Curly Whiskers by Night Mist
It was a thing of beauty. Stove Mouse popped out, Jericho was waiting on his chair and just stood with one paw on the stove and reached out with the other paw, snagged Stove Mouse and threw him down to the floor where Jiji was waiting. Jiji dispatched Stove mouse immediately. It was like they...

Tumbler Quilt by [email protected]
Finished my Flutterby quilt and now onto the Tumbler. I did one of these quilts many years ago, so it is an old quilt/pattern. I needed something to use up left over pieces of this and that, along with material in layer cakes and charm packs I didn't like, so this quilt is everything including the...

The Flutterby Quilt by [email protected]
I have revised a pattern that uses 2 1/2 inch jelly rolls. Instead I wanted to use a (42 piece) 10" layer cake I just brought. There was only 2 or 3 prints that I liked, the rest was ugly as far as I was concerned. Will never buy another layer cake. I recommend cutting your own 10 inch squares. ...

Repairing a quilt by Brian[_3_]
My philosophy of quilting is that it is both a fine art and a practical art. The fine art portion is that I think even a "stash buster" quilt should somewhat be coordinated in the colors/patterns chosen, as judged by the quiltmaker. The practical art part is that quilts are meant to be used...
