Hello, I live in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, on the shores of LAKE SUPERIOR. Two years ago I joined Munising Bay Quilt Guild. I've never sewed before, so the challenge was/is great for me. I found…Continue
Regina, We currently live in Florida but my heart and soul belong in Michigan so we are moving back to SE Michigan. I can't wait to go to all the quilt shows in Michigan. Here in Sarasota all the quilt shows are only "in season" which means not only is it a long, hot summer it is also devoid of stimulating quilt shows. Thanks for the feedback. Karen
Am working on baby quilt for first great grandson coming in April. I will see if I can post a couple of the blocks that will make up the border, then on the face will be a giant giraffe; have matching all over animal print for back (flannel) We are leaving on trip to Ga. tomorrow so will not be quilting for a bit. I looked up the quilt shop near Curtis and they have some gorgeous fabric; I will visit there in May and will stop in to check it out. Take care.
Regina, there's a nice fabric line out for art quilters called Danscapes by Dan Morris. There are architectural or natural categories. 2 free patterns at www.rjrfabrics ,one is Cabin in the Woods, the other Fall on the Farm, both by Joyce Becker.
Hi Regina! Thanks for the heads-up on the Munising Bay Quilt Guild show on Oct. 11-12, 2014. It sounds wonderful and I've put the event on my calendar. Will get the word out here in the greater Traverse City area. Stay worm up there!!! Kathy Hurst
Just wanted to pop in to say “hello” and introduce myself. I’m Linda Hubalek, fellow quilter and author from Kansas. Books about pioneer women are my specialty, with a cooking or a quilting theme mixed into each historical fiction series.
My Trail of Thread historical fiction book series, written in the form of letters sent back home, describes my ancestors’ wagon trail journey and homesteading in Kansas. Each book mentions twelve old-time quilt patterns, and I put drawings of them in the back of the books.
And my new books in the Kansas Quilterseries will be out by early 2014. It’s about my great grandmother Kizzie Pieratt and the many quilts she made.
So if you like to read—besides quilting—please enjoy my blog and book excerpts on my website. Besides printed as paperbacks, my ten books are also available for your Kindle or Nook.
I have about a dozen quilts made by my great grandmother, (that we used all the time when I was a kid) so I’m into antique quilts and patterns. What kind of quilts and patterns do you like to work with?
To do the Jewel Box we have a Batik Strip Swap going on and we are using those strips for the Jewel Box. We just started a Charm Square Swap of either Batik or 100% cotton at http://myquiltplace.com/group/charm-square-swap?xg_source=activity today to use with our Jewel Box Quilt project and the newest TWISTER quilts. Just come on over to join and then you can decide if you want to swap or just do the quilt projects.
