You might be a quilter if you _______________________

Thought this might be fun. You might be a quilter if you ____fill in the blanks. So I was making a chili dog and this happened.

My First Quilted Piece on the New Innova!

How fun it was to work on this quilt!  I didn't know how I was going to quilt the set-in triangles all around the quilt, but I laid it down and just started drawing with my rulers and my chalk pencil and out came the design!  Thanks to Lisa H. Calle for her Divide and Design instruction - class at MQX Springfield (Midwest) and also her online iQuilt class!  I LOVE how this turned out.  Enjoy!…

Continuing Issues on MyQuiltPlace

Good Morning.

Our network provider says the site should be working properly. I'm not convinced yet and need your help. If you can see this blog post, or the comment I posted, please respond. You can either "like" or leave a comment. This will help me judge how well the site is working.

One thing I need everyone to do: clear your cache and browsing history. This will clean up any old links. Once you do this, we will have a better idea of how well the site is operating.

Activity Feed Issues

Good Morning. In case you haven't noticed, the activity feed is not showing up correctly and not updating the way it is supposed to. Since the blog posts seem to be updating fairly well, I'm using this to try to contact everyone.

Please be patient and know that we…

Making Progress, Making Pillows

Hello fellow quilting fanatics. This has been a very busy month around the Leiner household.  We sold one rental house and bought two more so I have been kept from my quilting by landlady duties.  But I am happy to report that I am making progress on the quilt for Beck and Todd, the quilt that has stymied me all year, and am to the point of putting the border on the black…

By popular demand, the Cross Stitch Halloween quilt reprised.

My quilting friend, Riana Noyes asked me to do a post on the Halloween cross stitch quilt which is #108 in my albums.  The following are  pictures and some explanations/descriptions of how that quilt came to be.

First the back story.  I have been quilting since I was 18 years old.  I had my first child, Jamie at 23 and my second, Becky at 27.  All through their childhood, I was making quilts and once upon a time, cross stitching as well.  in 1984 or 85 I decided to do a Christmas…

A Christmas quilt done in time for Halloween

I know I have been incommunicato for awhile but I have been busy quilting!  Here is the most recent quilt I finished just tonight, a few scant hours before Halloween.  No, you are not crazy, this is a Christmas quilt.  Sometimes, we just don't get to choose the timing of when things get accomplished. 

The pattern is your basic log cabin with cross stitched Christmas…

End of Frustration!

I the winter is coming upon us, I pretty much achieved a goal... I cleaned out my basement and organized nearly everything!  Nearly organized enough to buy a different house... Plastic containers are my friends... it's been hard work, but now Im at the end of this haul.... 

I made a few dresses this summer, and a tunic... now I want to start on a wall hanging.  I am hoping all my planning will make for smooth transitions so I can continue on my path! 

Looking forward to a more…

What do you do when you are stymied about one quilt you are making? Make another one instead!

Hello Campers!  Welcome to spring and are you all busy on your quilt projects?  I am supposed to be working on my 2nd Daughter, Becky's wedding quilt (they will be married five years next weekend - I am a bit behind) and it has been a challenge from the get-go.  We picked out the fabric last spring during a visit to her house in Plano, Texas.  Here are the fabrics: Not feeling…

Visiting Longview Texas

hi, I am an Irish quilter but get to visit to Longview Tx to visit family regularly . I will be there soon mid/end April and wonder if there are any quilt events or exhibits within travelling distance I could take in on this visit.  I would be delighted to hear of ideas but don't want to travel too far either.  I am interested in all types of quilting and find sewing a perfect way to relax after busy days and weeks of work.
