A place for me to journal and post pictures about my quilting adventures.

Design wall Monday 6/14/10

Today Bart is modeling the last of the R-W-B Chinese Coins that HeartStrings made a long while ago. This one is in the Funky Caterpillar pattern (link on sidebar). I just love the texture that the Spiral templates give it. I remembered to take a half-way break, but I think my feet want me to take 2 days to do this much. This one will go to Alycia for her QOV project when it is finished.

I'm still loving the LeaderGrips for loading and unloading. I watched their video again, and noted that they clamp the end of the dowels so they don't roll away. I did it, and it works! I still really like not having any pins involved. I was always catching myself on them, and bleeding on the quilt!


The battery in my camera just went dead, or I would show you a fun little UFO I made to the flimsy stage yesterday. When hunting in the 2" square scrap bin, I found some little 4-patch "Posies" blocks - cut long before there was anything called a 4-patch Posy. They were left over from a stack and whack type 6" stars quilt that I made a long time ago, but only gave away last year for a special person's baby. I used to save left-over parts and pieces together until I made a reminder quilt. I now have one for that. It is about 15" x 18" and just needs a bit of quilting now. Hopefully I will remember a new battery for the camera before I finish it!


Happy Quilting, Becky

Great pattern. I love the movement of the quilt.

So how about a picture or three of your leader grips. Once Ruthie is put back together I will probably get those grips. It seems like such a good idea.

Loved the dolly quilts... so sweet. And one of these days i'll make that coin quilt. It really is nifty. B.
