birdsnest from Making A Lather

How did I spend national quilting day?  under the longarm.  It was fine, and then it wasn't. It was a customer quilt I really wanted to finish. Luckily, hubby was able to figure out I had thread and hair? around the bobbin shaft. He took the time to clean and oil better than I usually do, and we were up and running again. It may take awhile before I am not a bit upset with my machine again. I had changed bobbins, and needle, and rethreaded it 3 times and tried to quilt the same section 4 times. I ...

    The Quilts of Christmas Past from Sew........This Is My Blog

    I can't believe I haven't blogged in almost three weeks. Well, I guess I can, really.  This has been a crazy-busy December!  I have barely been in my sewing room at all. Since I don't have anything new to share I thought I'd show some of the Christmas quilts I made in the past.  

    This one is probably my favorite.  I made it in 2007 from blocks I received in a quilt guild row-robin.  Each person in the group made a row using the Christmas fabric I had provided.  When I got it back I didn ...
