We just got back from the Jacksonville, Fl quilt show. Very impressive quilts, we were more impressed with the quality of the quilts there than at the big Nashville show.

Sandy both quilts and knits. She is a leader/teacher in our Church's knitting group. They are now busy knitting bandages 4 inches x 4 feet, made exclusively of pure cotton. They are for leprosy victims in Viet Nam.

Since they are made of pure cotton (string, essentially), they can be boiled to sterilize and re-use, and they are so stretchy and "open" they allow the air to circulate to help speed up healing.

The only drawback is how long it takes to make a single 4 foot bandage ;-(

The advantage is that after a very short time, you can almost knit them in your sleep. So, the knitters can sit around and talk about anything, while knitting.

Sandy has been bringing her bandage knitting on our Egg rallyes, and knits them around the campfires in good weather, and watching DVD's in the egg when the weather turns bad.

Just finished my 6th quilt this year. Four of them were large lap size, one was twin size and one was queen size. The last one was a Mickey Mouse quilt started on Monday afternoon before Christmas, finished Christmas Eve morning, and delivered that afternoon. That was cutting it a little close! I don't have another to start right now and I'm feeling a little ansy. Made it through today but not sure what I'll do about tomorrow!

Her spare time is spent in the 'quilting room' while I sit, a shunned husband, and have to watch sports alone

This sounds like my house! My husband is shunned too but he quite enjoys watching football or hockey or NASCAR while I quilt. I have a home business doing longarm machine quilting so my quilting really does take up a whole room. I should be working/quilting now but procrastinating on the computer.

tried to put links to photos but can't figure it out, sorry.
here's my blog address if you wanted to see photos:

I started quilting six years ago when I retired - always figured I wouldn't have time to do it until I wasn't working any more. I've lost count of how many I've made, along with table runners, various little bags, wall hangings, etc. I also have a room in my house that's for sewing only. Doesn't everybody??

Never thought about quilting on the road...

Talking Quilter too

I have quilted for a few years now, but just retired so am looking forward to having lots more time for it. My husband can't figure out what we will do with all the quilts, silly man. Most of what I have made have gone to the kids-grandkids. I do some hand applique so I think I could take that with me on the road, or do hand piecing. The Sisters Quilt Show is this Saturday July 9, since we only live about 45 minutes away I am going with a friend. Anyone else going?

Yes, we were at the Sisters Quilt Show. My wife is the quilter. We stayed at Tumalo State Park. After Tumalo we headed for Valley of the Rogue State Park where she was able to do some outdoor quilting of her own.

Interesting new book about seamstresses whose sewing skills kept astronauts alive in space suits. "in the midst of NASA’s mania for systems engineering, this technical device was created largely by seamstresses."

What kind of quilting does she do on the road? This years quilt show was the best I have seen. The colors were incredible and there were some wonderful original designs.

For a change, my wife made these bears from an old comforter that we got as a wedding gift back in 1967 as a wedding gift. They're going out to our grandsons at Christmas.

Since this original posting I actually started quilting a little. While my family members are more into art quilts, I like the personal touch, simple designs with meaningful fabrics. Anyway, I've been using some fabrics from Spoonflower. They have some great trailer/camping fabrics such as these.

Not the cheapest fabric, but if you buy a yard of something you like you can fill the quilt out with coordinating and less expensive fabrics.

My quilter is gone now but our grandaughter got most of the stuff and the Janome. She is doing quite well with it. Janet gave most of the quilts away before the end but I can still curl up with a lot of memories when I feel the need.
She would be really impressed [as am I] with the quilts show here.
