  1. I am a slow learner, but eventually I get it! I have had my Lenni for 5 years this month and I am still learning and practicing things I have learned on this forum! I mainly quilt for myself except for a handful of customers and have never been able to go to classes. Thank goodness for the internet and this forum! From the beginning I have used So Fine thread from Superior Threads. It is marvelous thread and I have never had a problem with it. But, along with So Fine, I also bought Bottom Line. I wind my own bobbins and Bottom Line gave me nothing but trouble! From this forum I read to pu

  6. I have mentioned before that my daughter wrote a children's book. I have some pictures now to share. This is my daughter, Eyvonna Rains, and me at one of her book signings. She wrote this book for really little kids that are just learning to enjoy reading books. I made the quilts on the table for her and it took a few tries before I could get it to match the book exactly. hastingsbooksigning by DyanCT, on Flickr These are the ones I tried and we decided on the top two.

  7. We live in north central Oklahoma and everything just skirted around us and on to the east. We had 3 1/2 " of rain which we needed. We have an underground storm shelter in our house, so we always feel 'safe' when we are here. Thanks for thinking about us 'Okies'!!
  8. My granddaughter was about the same age as yours when she decided she wanted to quilt. She lives in Iowa, so we had to wait until she came for a visit in the summer. This is a picture of one of the things she made. We just took muslin and batting and made a sandwich and then she used the Lenni to quilt it. Then we sewed it together to make a large bag. She is 13 years old now and still takes it on trips with her. It is wonderful when your grandchildren want to learn to quilt or sew!! Granddaughtersbag by DyanCT, on Flickr

  14. I just finished this Tardis quilt for my grandson Branden's 16th birthday present. My kids and grandkids are Dr Who fanatics! So, when I saw a picture of this on Pinterest, I just knew I had to make it for him. He lives in Iowa and we will be taking it to him in a couple of weeks. I can't wait to see the reaction on his face when he sees it!! IMG_4403 by DyanCT, on Flickr Here is a picture of the back and I tried to get a close up of the panto. My camera doesn't take very good close-up pictures. I drew the pantograph myself. It is the tardis and then bursts of stars around it.
  15. Beautiful quilting! I love the quilting on the white border too!!
  16. Love the tattoos!! Would love to have some for my Lenni!!
