So glad (and a bit jelly) that you had such a great time!

This is beautiful - and so tiny!  I hope she loved it!

Well done!
24  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Seam Allowance for quilting? on: May 13, 2013 07:29:21 AM
I had this problem, too.  Using a spider helped, especially for triangles with those little points.  After stumbling upon Bonnie Hunter's site, I still continued with the spider theory but started using quilt pieces instead.  Now instead of wasting the time and thread I am working on two quilts at once.  The one I'm working on with leaders and enders isn't the one I'm primarily working on, but if you are sewing anyway you might as well make it count, right?  It can be the beginning of the next quilt that you'll "upgrade" to the main quilt or just stay a leader/ender project until it's finished.

And yes, 1/4" seam is correct.  It seems so tiny after sewing garments and home dec, doesn't it?  A bigger seam will only add bulk for the quilting process later, and the quilting will make it more secure.  You'll be anchoring the pieces to the back, so there won't be as much stress on each seam like there is with other sewing.

Beautifully done!  Sometimes it's better that you don't know what you don't know, or you wouldn't have the courage to begin.  Wink

I hopped over to look at the reviews, and this was posted on March 3rd.  In case it wasn't you, here is what it said " I tried 'Grandma's Spot Remover', I applied the soap and brushed it in with a toothbrush. Left it 10 minutes and washed under cold water with the tooth brush again and it all went away!!!!"

Good luck!  The only other thing I can think of to try is Biz.

Thanks! yes, it does feel good. My next project is a lapghan for my my mom.
LOL it's a good sign if you are planning another one.  Congrats on the finish!
29  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Does anyone know what quilt pattern this is? on: February 04, 2013 10:05:27 PM
I'm sorry, but this one isn't familiar to me.  Is this one you can actually touch or is it a photo you found online?

That is amazing...though the team choice is rather unfortunate (says the Blackhawks fan). But, at least it wasn't Vancouver or Detroit Smiley

This is really amazing, though - I love that its pieced together the way it is - and hopefully it got your future BIL through some serious lockout blues! (HA! Blues...get it? Right...I'll be going now...)
Wooo hooo go Blues!  Why, yes, I do live in St. Louis.  Why do you ask?  Grin

You had to overcome a lot to get this one finished.  I hope he appreciates it!  I like the pixel approach rather than applique.  Well done!
