  1. Cagey, with piecing it seams like I just know what to do BUT I am relatively new to the art of quilting. I am trying really hard to do more than a meander panto. Yes, I used a panto to do a simple meander--for YEARS on a mid arm, and yes it did permanently attach a top to the bottom with batting in the middle, thus a quilt. But, now I find I want to do more. Soooo I have found Pam Clarkes Designs with Lines books and stencils to be the MOST helpful so far. But I am always open to everyone's suggestions Sharon
  2. Hi again, Sharyn Craig's book Great Sets is on EBay with free shipping right one for $8.69 with free shipping. sharon
  3. Hi Cagey, I would go to the library or book store planning to spend an afternoon and peruse their entire selection of quilt books. Maybe more than one store, afternoon. That would give you some idea as to what you need/want. After narrowing your search look online for used books, Thrift Books and EBay are great sources. Good luck in your search. I don't have one to recommend, I am assuming you are looking for a technique book and there are many out there. Sharon
  4. Wow, it's absolutely stunning. You are very talented, I love it.
  5. Congratulations on your new to you Lenni, you will have so much fun! And, this forum is a great resource, rich with information. If I have an "issue", I just come to this forum and do a search for my question. Yesterday, I was having problems with a tee shirt quilt--my forum search suggested a few things, among them-maybe a larger needle. (Ya think, I can hear it from all the experienced quilters) and viola-problem solved. So thanks for all the quilters who posted not only the questions but those who take the time to post their solutions and opinions as well. Sharon
  6. Libby, it's so beautiful! I love it. Sharon
  7. Hi Tracy, you might try Etsy. I was completing a quilt from 2008 and of course needed another yard of fabric. I found it on Etsy--1 1/2 yards, and under $10, boy did I feel lucky. Hope you are as fortunate as I was. It is the Kansas City Star Circuit Riders Quilt, top is finished, now al I need is the confidence to quilt it. Hopefully that won't take another nine years. LOL Sharon
  8. IMHO or experience, I also had a mid-arm for about five years before I got "Mr Lenni", the skills do transfer---what was wasted was the five years I could have enjoyed a longarm, I just didn't know what I was missing. Anyway I would encourage you to re-think your plan. Mid-arms have their place but are extremely limiting in their capabilities and you will be a much better quilter on a longarm then on a mid-arm. My two-cents.
  9. Love it, very nice, and your binding looks way too good to even give "machine sewn" a second thought!
  10. Yes Jean, I want them, let me know how you would like to be paid and contact info. Thanks Sharon
  11. Hi Jean, I sent you a pm. I am interested in the two remaining King design boards if you would also sell them separately. Thanks, Sharon
  12. HST=half square triangle, I knew that. LOL. It just didn't compute-- senior moment. Thanks, Sharon
  13. Wow, beautiful just beautiful! Absolutely stunning, maybe some day I can be just half that good. I don't know what a HST is, could somebody please tell me?
  14. Wow, all I can say is that your artistic abilities are waaaay over the top! Beautiful work.
  15. I'll take them, let me know hoe to pay. Sharon
