Repairing Utilitarian Old Quilts

First, I just have to show you Apple Jack Cotton, by Tim and Beck, from Moda. Isn't this fabric line so cute! I won a jellyroll during theQuilting GalleryBlog Hop from Sharon @ Vroomans Quilts! Thank you Sharon, you have such great taste in fabric, I plan on something fun for my littlest baby girl! The next blog hop will be "April Showers" withMadam Samm! I bought this old quilt at a yard sale for a $1.00. It had no batting, just a piece of muslin sewn on. One day I planned to deconstruct it so I could practice Free Motion Quilting (FMQ) that day has arrived! Repairs needed to be made where it had a couple of little wear holes. I grabbed a couple of scraps and went to work. Cut a scrap bigger than your hole. Then iron all 4 sides over about 1/8".

Go to the Quilting Gallery and become a Quilting Blogger

I just went to the Quilting Gallery which is hosted by Pat Sloan and Michelle Foster. They have a huge database with links to thousands of blogs that all quilt. Last night I went on it looking around and found 8 other bloggers in my state. I like the idea of finding possible new friends who enjoy what I do to maybe go to a quilt show or sew with. So, follow the link, sign up, and grab a button!

While at the Quilting Gallery take a look around, I like the Learning Center. They just started a Beginner's Quilt Along, if you want some extra fun join in. They also have a Weekly Quilting Contest and they always need quilts and help with the voting. I like it because you get to see quilts from all over the world and all the different styles. It is easy to do and you don't have to jump through a bunch of hoops to have fun at 1:00 am in the morning.

Come on go check it out! When you join come back and leave a comment with your blog name on it and I will join any blogs I haven'…

I kept busy this week working on my lil' twister quilt. Took it this afternoon to my friend Irene, to quilt it all together. It will be one of our joint entries in the County Fair. Then it will go to little Sophie to live for the rest of her life! That baby is so cute I can't wait to kiss her little cheeks! Her momma is my youngest daugh…
