  3. Hi Nineva I have a small box of vintage hankies that was my husbands mother. I will never use them. I will be happy to send them to you . Please send me an email at byegonn@aol.com. I was going to give them to goodwill.

  4. You get a more professional response to your questions here. I was surprised by the number of folks advocating using sheets for backing on FB. Plus no politics or alternative facts here. Only wish the more recent responses were on top and didn't have to wade through several years of responses. Some old ones are still helpful so don't want to dump the old.

  5. I have decided that I am going to leave FB in the next week or two. I have had enough of the spewing hate there from both sides. I also do not believe in the censorship there and other sites. I have none of our kids or grands on FB. Most other family members are not on either, or rarely ever post. I have never posted much here but I read. Somehow this did not get transferred when I got this new computer and I could not get in under IQuiltToo. I had to sign in as a new user. Looking forward to being here again!

  6. Stan, the biggest advantage to our Facebook pages is the fact that those of us who follow the various groups get instant notifications that someone needs help. These forums have to be checked periodically, which can sometimes fall through the cracks. And even if we see and respond to a post, the user might not see our response for some time. On Facebook, our interaction can be in real time - and is a searchable resource for other users. Yes, these forums are a similar resource and are searchable, but they don't feed past users' eyes, where someone might say, "Wait, that's just like what I expe

    Surf Song Bargello

    Just off my quilt frame this week, "Surf Song" bargello. From the book Twist and Turn Bargello Quilts by Eileen Wright. Needed a king size quilt for my bed and instead of adding borders to make a king sized "Surf Song" I kept building the bargello to the edges. I quilted it with IQ and the panto Ripples by Lorien Quilting. I will make coordinating batik pillowcases and of course still need to bind the beast!! Robin in MT

  9. I call myself the 'cobbler with no shoes' because I quilt for everyone else except me! So my goal was to make a quilt for our new house, our new bed.... I wanted calm neutral colours reminding me of sand or pebbles.....I made this quilt using the pattern "Sweet Garden" from Carolina Patchworks. I was intending to make the entire king size with this pattern - and I did. Then I hated it, so I chopped 2/3s of the pattern off and added white for some neutral breathing space. Simple quilting in between the blocks. And then I got carried away in the white. [

  10. I had trouble with "bearding " from a pure wool batting more than ten years ago. It was gentle machine washed. I now use wool/poly on a scrim in all of my quilts and they have been through the washing machine numerous times.
