Great circle quilt waggonswest!

I've had a quilting set-back - our basement flooded Saturday night, and it's a big mess.  Fortunately not much was ruined, just some Ikea bookcases and our bathroom vanity, but the carpets have been torn out, baseboard and the bottom 2 feet of drywall removed.  There is still some water.  Most of our basement things are still down there, dry, but we have to move it all upstairs and find places for everything.  Once it has settled down here in a couple of weeks, I hope to get my quilt out again and get back at it!

So sorry Korok.  I know how devastating those things can be.  Hope it all goes back together smoothly for you.

i had to trash my whole cloth quilt I was working on...not enough basting and it looks horrid.  I think I'm going to try spray basting stuff next time.  I know that's not the right name for it but I'm really tired lol!

Still need to figure out backing for my lap quilt and get started on my yellow and gray one again...things need to settle down around here so the crafting can happen!  :/

I finished the western quilt top a half hour before the wedding! LOL I took a photo and put it in the bride and groom's card and they will get the completed quilt in a couple weeks after quilting and binding.

Quilt one for March; quilt 3 for 2011.  This was from a kit.  A friend came to visit over Mardi Gras and brought this with her.  It says easy, but because of the soft fuzzy fabric and the silky fabric, it was sort of a bear to sew

I've been wondering about kits our last surviving quilt shop has. Is it worth it, to you? They don't seem that expensive, and I think they're pre-cut (and it's cutting that scares me most). Is that a good way to ease in to quilting something big?

(Just have to ask...WHERE are you, that folks come see you for Mardi Gras? I'm married to a good cajun boy in Baton Rouge! Laissez le bon temps roulez....

Graced - This was a quilt kit from joanns, so like a mass market one.  With the value for having the fabrics picked out and sort of pre-measured was nice.  In this case mixing the minky fabric and silky stuff in -- didn't make it worth it.  I would bet one from a quilting place would be nice.  I live near luling, la, so it doesn't take long to drive into the quarter for Mardi Gras.  I'm not originally from La, so a friend from Wyoming came, she's never been to Mardi Gras before
