521  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: My son's first sewing lesson on: August 08, 2010 02:37:19 PM
That's awesome!  My JUST three year old (b-day yesterday) is so interested in my sewing but I wasn't sure if that would be ok.  I love the idea that you can give them something with straight lines to sew - maybe I'll let her make a bag.  Smiley
Thanks and those pics are darling!!!

Amazing quilt!  Beautiful color choices and I can't believe your matching seams - so professional!  Are you a professional?  wow.

Thanks!  You are all so sweet!  It's giving me courage to attack the next one...

And the back is a white muslin just like the front.  For some reason it's kind of shadowy in that picture. 
524  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: First Quilt AKA what was I thinking? on: August 03, 2010 03:14:26 PM
wow!  That is super creative.  I love that you just went for it on your first quilt!  I think you'll find that creative spark in yourself, that willingness to take a risk, will take you far.  I'm impressed.

Super cute!  The minky will be so soft!  I would love to use it but just can't seem to quilt over it!

Ha ha!  Tell me about it!  I love the look of it and might someday try it myself, with a similar timeline!
527  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: what is this quilting block called? on: August 03, 2010 01:14:38 PM
I knew that looked familiar so I had to google research until I found it!  It is called "Cathedral Windows" and here is one example:

And it looks like there is a great tutorial here:

Good luck with it!

528  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Fabric quality question on: August 03, 2010 12:56:54 PM
I have noticed a buzz around the blogs that only high quality (expensive at $8-$10 a yard) is worth it in the long run.  I'm wondering if people here have an opinion about that.  If I had oodles of cash I would just go for it, heck who doesn't want a house full of Amy Butler??  But I see really cute prints at my local Joann for about half the price.  Any thoughts on the long term quality difference, or even short term! 

Thanks,
Emily
529  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: A brilliant idea for recyclables!!! on: July 30, 2010 08:16:37 AM
This is so true!  As a former teacher I am a total hoarder of "interesting" recyclables.  I keep a running bag of them and then bring them to my daughter's teacher.  One of the places where I was a teacher we kept a big bunch of things parents brought in - milk cartons, tissue boxes, containers, boxes, etc.  The kids could use them however they liked - to make sculptures, robots, play in the sand/water, anything they can think of!  I love this sort of play because you have to use your imagination, problem solve, and ultimately create something from junk!
