"I'm so sorry for the loss of your friend. So sorry too that misdiagnosis happens too often and robs a person of quality of life. She needs to be remembered. What is her name? Perhaps donate a quilt in her name?
Hi,If you're looking around for a good cause that involves quilts. Here's one that is sponsored by Quilters Dream batting to raise funds for ALS research which will also benefit other neuro-muscular diseases such as Parkinson's, Alzheimers, MD, etc. For information on how to get involved, visit: http://quiltersdreambatting.com/HD/ALS.htmWhat I particularly like about this project is the woman in charge. She's motivated, has the network…See More
You asked about square size, traditionally it seems log cabins are made in 8-inch and 12 inch sizes. At least through the years, that seems to be the patterns I found most often. But I rather like the idea of an 11-inch or even a 10 inch…"
I think you stumbled upon the most recomended thread first up ...... that will save a lot of time and money experimenting with varius threads. I have switched to Superior Threads .... and use Bottom Line on both top and bottom. Initially…"

"That's great information. I'm taking notes to research what an Aunt Becky is. :) The sewing I'm doing right now is on the machine, not by hand, sorry to be so confusing. I'm too anxious to actually finish something right now to…"
I use the #11 quilting needles(John James) and LOVE them. They are short(1") and fine and feel perfectly comfortable.
I also use "Aunt Becky" underneath to protect my fingers. I quilted a queen size whole cloth quilt with the…"
I admit that I'm trying to travel from the dark ages of my mother's brand of traditional quilting into the light years destination of today.

"I may be obsessing with handmade Christmas cards, but it seems like I see them everywhere and get so excited at what people are doing. I particularly love Sherry Lidgard's use of kids coloring books and photoshop. I've tried just coloring…"
Hi Dawn, Thank you so much for the friend invitation. I'm really sorry it's taken me so long to respond, I've had a back problem for the past few months and have not been able to sit or lie down. Just getting back to normal. I love your beautiful quilts.
I especially like your table runner. The combination of fabric paint and cloth work gives an interesting result. I also enjoyed seeing the women featured on your blog. How did you come across them? I would be pleased if you would take some time and look at my website. http://lynxlace.com I also am showcasing the work of some others, but I'm doing it differently. You are giving your guests an opportunity to personalize their contribution. Well done.
I think today must be Dawn Goldsmith day! Found your blog mentioned on someone's blog, then another link, added you to my reader only to discover you were already there ....... and then a friend request here! Glad to add tyou as a friend.
