Autumn colors sound great.  Reds, greens, yellows, browns?

Hi Kimberly,

Have you decided on colors yet?  And which way do we cut the strips?

Hi Katy,

Notified Kimberly hopefully she got my info.  I found lots of great fall prints at the fabric store today.  Still looking up block patterns.

Hi Katy,

How about the tesselating leaves for fall with fall colors or is that too mundane?

hi katy,

Would love to do a swap but never did one.  How do we get started?

Thanks Margaret,

I tried to look up The Cotton Patch but couldn't find the right site.  Will try again.  Glad I'm not the only one crazy for lighthouse quilts!

Hi Margaret,

I'm interested in the lighthouse quilt and wondering where I can get it.  I like doing lighthouses.  I have made my own pattern of the Portland Head light in Maine.  I can't wait to see the whole thing when it's done. 

Thanks Ann

I've used the steam and stretch on my carpet and it works great.  I also steam my miniatures and then press and leave them under heavy books for a couple of days.  It works great.

Thanks sally and Pris for your comments,

I took them to heart and did another wall hanging and it came out great.  I made sure my backing was not too tight.  I started quilting from center to outer edges.  I even did circles and it came out great. Thankyou very much

Thanks Davina and Sally,

The front of the quilt looks wonderful.  Your right so what about the back! But I would like to improve my wall hanging quilts.  I wanted to make a continuous line of diagnals on the quilt to go with the tesselation pattern.  I put the safety pins about 2-3 inches apart.  Should I have the pins going all in one direction? Would that help?  I should have started from the middle out but I was determined  to take a short cut.  Now I know.  Quilts teach you patience.  I have another top to do tonight.  This one is smaller.  I call it Chocolate because I used some new line of fabrics that remind me of chocolate.  I made circles in the middle of squares using a curved edge.  Each block came out great but I really want to make sure the quilting comes out well.  Thanks again.

I have been struggling with machine quilting smaller quilts and wall hangings.  I just put the back on one today and used my walking foot.  I did simple straight diagnol stitches on a 23x 43 size quilt.  Well, I used quilters safety pins to baste.  I pulled the back as tight as I could get it and basted it to my carpet then basted top layers.  After I quilted I checked the back and there were puckers and wrinkles made by the stitching.  I was so mortified because I spent so much time basting it!  Should I do needle and thread basting?  I just can't figure out how to get that smooth look on the back.  What other things can I try? Please help.

Thankyou very much Mary and Katy,

I've been researching books from the library and bookstores and so far have found a few that I like.  Twenty little patchwork quilts sounds good.  Shall look that one up too. And Mary would be very interested in any other titles you have and I promise you I don't get bored looking at quilt books!  I have quite a collection and love it.

Thanks again,

Hi Everyone,

Need some help with finding a good book of miniature quilts.  Pictures really help.  Any suggestions?  For some reason I'm getting very interested in making them.

New to this site.  It is quite inspiring.  I enjoy viewing all the sewing pictures.  I live in Maine and I am currently working on a small tesselation wall hanging and have a purse to do after that.

It's great to be inspired by others and see what they are doing. Love the sight.
