dew quilting: Another wedding quilt

Wedding quilt... fabric bought, cut, pieced, quilted, binding attached, delivered. Whew! Fastest one yet. DH loved it and didn't understand why he couldn't have it and buy the newlywed couple a toaster. Come to think of it, a toaster was on their gift list. Used my easy go to Trip Around the World pattern. The only thing I knew was their family room was brown, light brown walls and brown couch. I tried keeping it neutral, brown, black and a little gray. Love the colors. Made it a little larger, 75x92, thought it was a good size for a couple to snuggle on the couch. I think it finished very nice, I might have to make one for myself, of course I always say that. Congratulations to Brett and Megan!

Bastille Day (March 2, 2012)

Cover Story - Friday, March 2, 2012 Bastille Day Second place: Adults by Apala G. Egan "Here are some more saris," Meera's sister-in-law said as she laid out a pile of crisp, white saris on the chair. "You might want to put them over there." She nodded towards the armoire as she draped her canary yellow sari with its woven black border over her left shoulder with an easy swing of her arm, the sari straining over her swelling belly. "But there's no room," Meera said. She faced her visitor, noting the 22 karat gold hoops on her ears and her finely wrought gold necklace glinting in the morning sunlight of a Calcutta spring filtering in through the window slats. "The wardrobe is full." "But surely...," the relative paused. A look of apprehension mingled with pity flitted across her face. "Sure

The Hyphenated Life

She is 5 years old, she is from Glendale, Ariz., she was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, blue jeans, and pink flip-flops, and she is black. The last characteristic matters, and not only because Jahessye Shockley's family needs the public's help to find their little girl alive. It matters because according to the Justice Department, children of color make up 65 percent of all missing children cases; 42 percent of those are African-American, 23 percent Latino. It matters that Jahessye is black because despite those statistics, of which she has now become a part, the face of the missing child in America has long been, and continues to be, a white face. Six years ago, it was Baby Jessica. Right now, it's Baby Lisa.FULL ENTRY

Looking Glass Knits: Wedding quilt

I've been quilting a lot lately. This is a quilt in progress for my best friend's wedding present. It's got birds and helicopters -- so, things that fly is the theme?

signature wedding quilt, SMofA quilt show 2010

yes, the description said these were the wedding colors and that it was a challenge for the quilter. I thought some of the modern quilting people who love grey would like seeing this one. Also... string blocks!

Scrap Happy Quilter: Sylvia's Bridal Quilt

Have any of you read the "Elm Creek Quilt" books by Jennifer Chiaverini. They are a nice, fun read. They are stories based around the lives of a group of quilter's. In the "Master Quilter" they all make a surprise sampler quilt for Sylvia's wedding gift. The pattern is posted on this webpage, Patterns by Row. The quilt consists of 140 different blocks. I am just picking out my favorite blocks and will be making a smaller quilt. I am using "Heaven on Earth" by Northcott. I will be giving it to my sister for Christmas. I know, can you believe that I am actually getting a jump on Christmas. I generally start my projects in November. Just thought I would share the first 6 blocks with you. Maybe you all can keep me on task and I will have it done before November.

the Domina: Antique Wedding Quilt

I have the privilege of working on a beautiful antique quilt that's destined to be a wedding gift next weekend. This amazing quilt is all hand pieced hexagons and diamonds - isn't it gorgeous!! I'm in awe of the time it took this quilter to cut and hand sew each piece! I put the seam ripper in there so you can get an idea of how small each piece is. The quilt top was made by the groom's grandmother. A crew of ladies from our congregation sandwiched and hand quilted it with perle cotton. I love the pale pink cotton they picked. My role in this process is to bind the quilt, no simple task since the edge is not straight but scalloped! And not only that, the two long sides are a bump-bump-bump type of scallop, while the short sides are a bump-dip-bump-dip S-shaped wave. Did that make any sense

Submarines and Androids: The Comfort Movie Phenomenon

Certain films, Ive noticed over the years, are like chicken soup. Theyre the movies you watch to make you feel better, to unwind. These are films youve seen so many times you can recite the dialogue and anticipate the exact cutaways and insert scenes, films so familiar they become the cinematic equivalent of a favorite old quilt. Comfort movies, I call them. Since were piling on the similes, lets try one more: Comfort movies are similar to your favorite old albums. You put them on when you want to relax, or have some background music for whatever else youre up to. For example, I prefer to do the laundry to mid-era Beatles. Revolver, say. Or Rubber Soul. Mowing the lawn requires the iPod and Jurassic 5. These days, when my CIA handlers remotely activate my international as
