Losing My Sewing Room

On July 25th we welcome a Japanese exchange student into our family for the next year.  We're very excited except for one problem:  he'll be staying in my sewing room.  Well, I shouldn't really call it my sewing room since no actual sewing is done in that room.  It's really just my fabric stash closet.  I have so much fabric I need an entire bedroom to store it. I actually sew at the dining room table.  My design wall is an 8' x 10' piece of batting on the main wall of the dining…

I'm back in the saddle again! Working on "Topography" with my cat buddy, Vinnie

Loving how this quilt is coming together but I have run into a slight problem - it is too narrow.  This is a wedding quilt for my "third" daughter, Artemis and her husband Tom and it is (at this time) 45 x 84 inches.  I thought of adding a row of blocks down the right side.  My husband suggested something sand colored so as not to take too  much attention away from this…

Hi all. Wondering if anyone on here uses the ironable Mylar for sewing? We were asked to make some in a diamond shape. Have only sold acrylic so far so we don't have any samples of what you would make with it. Any help or advice would be appreciated!

Paint a Pretty Picture

I'm up in the air about what to call this art quilt, but I have a bit of time to decide.  It's coming along.  I have two (maybe 3) colors left to figure out and have ordered a few more pigments to help me decide.  I'm using polished pigments (available via sewfarsewgood.org or from colourarte.com) and Derwent Inktense pencils.  I mix the pigments with textile medium (like Inkfusion or Delta Ceramcoat).  The pencils I will either pencil the color on dry and brush the textile medium over it,…

Lost Job

I lost my job in April and have decided to try and make extra money by sewing and teaching. I also am just starting a store on Etsy which is called CharleneHsCorner. Things are not happening as fast as I would like. Do any of you have any suggestions or ideas?

Thanks so much,

Charlene in WS North Carolina

The end of a career is near!

Hello Quilting family! I've missed getting on here and seeing what's happening on My Quilt Place.  I am happy to announce I get to retire from the Navy next year and will be looking forward to spending more time quilting and hopefully finding a way to turn this passion into profit.  If anyone has some leads or ideas on the best avenues to pursue, I'm all ears:)  I will be going to School full time since the Navy is paying me to go for three years.  I'm be working on my Masters in Education…
