Everyone is gonna have a story and please God may we survived to tell it

When I was a young bride the first time around in the early 70's, I started out making quilts from scraps of material left over from clothing sewing projects.  The first ones were patchwork and tied, not quilted and quite honestly, pretty ugly.  I have pictures of all of my quilts and from time to time, I look at them to understand the process and the progress of change in my ideas and my quilting ability.  I actually enjoy looking at them but one in particular always leaves me with a nagging…See More

Like fine wine, we are going to let this one rest for awhile....or is that cheese?

Just finished the quilt top for the "Fox in the Christmas Hen House" and I am pretty darn pleased with it.  Turned out to be bigger than I originally planned (it's approximately 80 x 94 inches) but I always believe the quilt decide what size it will be, not me.  The back will be the same chicken print as the fussy cut chickens in the final border.  I do not have enough…See More

"Beautiful, Ginnie! I think it was completely okay to offer it to him. He is still a part of your life and I am sure your thoughts were of him while making it. The other half just won't be a part of it now. "

Of course I would love to be a friend to you, another Ginnie, even if we spell it differently. What's your middle name? Sure hope your knee replacements heal well and you are up and at 'em again soon.

 Just here to introduce myself and welcome you to MQP.

Sometimes we are not sure where to visit on this site but I wanted to let you know that I have a group of gals and I that are doing several different quilts the Blooming Nine and the Jewel Box quilts. We are posting pictures with our choices of fabrics and progress. Carla Walton has done several of the Blooming Nine so she is our administrator. Come on over to view what we are doing at http://myquiltplace.com/group/batik-strip-swap/forum/topics/projects-and-pictures?xg_source=activity.

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. Just come on over to join and then you can decide if you want to swap or just do the quilt projects.
