I just wanted to give a shout out for my friend Matt at ManQuilter.com. He and his wife Bradie have a live webcam where you can watch them quilt on their HQ16 Longarm quilter. I have learned so much in the short time that I have been watching them. So if you have a moment to check them out, I am sure you will become hooked just like me!


Hooded Bath Towels

Wow! I did not realize how long it has been since my last entry. I am a bad blogger lol.

I have been making these adorable Hooded Bath towels. They are great for our camper when the kids go down to the pond. Nice and warm!

You can purchase my towels at my website www.aplusquiltshop.com

Happy Quilting!

1/4 inch foot

No matter how much I try and how hard I practice, I just cannot seem to get a true quarter inch seam. So, I went out yesterday and bought myself a new foot for my bernina with the 1/4 inch guide.

What a huge difference that little guide makes in accuracy! I had started some of my disappearing 9 patch before getting the foot and then some afterwards. I put them together and they did not match up. Way off actually so now I know how important that little foot is.

That is my finding for the day lol!


DQS6 Disaster

I made this really cute quilt for DQS6 and mailed it out on 5/1/09. Just my luck, it has been lost in mail land :-( For over a month it is nowhere to be found. I have the receipt so will try and call the PO and see if they can locate it. (it went overseas)

An Angel quilt has been sent to her by the wonderful TLHCrawford and hopefully mine will show up eventually!

On a lighter note, I have been working on a couple of quilts. I made a pinwheel quilt for one of my swap partners and really liked it so I am making a larger version of that.

I am also working on a disappearing 9 patch usuing a fresh layer cake by Moda. I really love the colors in that fabric and with the layer cake, I cut each 10 inch square into 4 5 inch squares. I have way more squares then with a charm pack so I think this one might end up fitting my bed!

That's all for now, Have a great day!
