Great information!Just a caution about your sewing machine needles⚠️. We are seeing quite a few machines coming in with problems caused by a budget brand of needles being sold at some department stores. These needles are made so poorly that they will actually cause your machine to not sew properly.
To demonstrate - the needle on the left is a Schmetz brand needle size 80 and on the right is the department store needle size 70. This size needle should be finer than the Schmetz, and as you can see, not only is it thicker, but it’s also longer😱! Other needles in the same department-store-pack are made backwards or are bent. Consumers are purchasing these needles in good faith, and then spending hours trying to find the cause of their sewing machine problem, all the while certain that it can’t be their machine needle because it’s a brand-new pack😤. And the worst part about this is that newbies to sewing, who are keen to get involved in this hobby that we all love so much, think that the problems that they are experiencing are caused by them doing something wrong, and with a hit to their confidence, they just give up🙄.
No matter if you have an enormous machine that you use every day, or a small one, that you get out every now and then, we recommend using brand-quality needles like Schmetz, that you can purchase from all good sewing stores. Share this post with your sewing friends ... See MoreSee Less

So many shops in Texas. I was wondering if any of the shops have plates like this. it measures 3.25 by 7. I ran across this in Wyoming. But was hoping. someone might have seen or know of that would make it a bit easier to find. Thanks ... See MoreSee Less

It’s not quilted but it’s my vacation Row by Row. Blocks from Texas, my home, Lubbock my city, Wyoming, Montana and South Dakota! This is the only one I’ve done but we have a musical family and Texas and music just go together. ... See MoreSee Less

So Texas . . . what designs would you like to see? What is your favorite shape?For some shops coming up with a concept, designing, creating and making a pattern is very difficult, so we are asking you.....what types of rows and/or blocks would you like to see this year? What is the first thing you think of when you hear the phrase "taste the experience"??
Thanks for your input! ... See MoreSee Less
Applique is fine with me. It's very difficult to do a "theme" in a pieced block. Applique is often the only way to be able to showcase the idea or design.
A regional quilt highlighting local specialties.
Local food festivals, local produce, farmers markets, local food specialties.
And yes pieced rows would be nice. 2018 had the fewest pieced rows. I may be in the minority but I like the different row sizes. Wish I had seen more of the long tall sally rows.
If stores would use previous years row for inspiration. For example if they used an animal in a past Row use them again but eating or drinking. Bunny eating a carrot, bears with a picnic basket, dogs burying a bone, birds at a feeder.
So many ideas. I’m excited to see what the stores come up with.
I love the pieced rows. The last few years there has been way too much applique and not enough piecing. Row by Row should be ROW by ROW. But thats just my opinion. More pieced blocks please. Thanks!
I would love to do my entire RXR quilt with rows celebrating tacos! Or Tex-Mex food if tacos are too specific. Also, count my vote for more pieced rows.
I've never participated but have seen the past few years rows. The ones I've liked the best have had very Texas themes: Texas flag, bluebonnets, longhorns, yellow rose, armadillo, windmills. Maybe something that captures our amazing sunsets or landmarks.
A bookshelf of cookbooks
How about every states favorite or regional foods.
BBQ, Mexican food, Czech kolaches, blackeyed peas, wineries, pecan pie - lots of Texas foods!
I saw an idea in another group: camper Row with a camp fire meal. Hot dogs, s’mores, etc. Please let a store or stores run with the camping or Glamping idea.
A mixture of applique and piecing: Texas Weird/Unknown Landmarks -such as the Cadillac Ranch, Thanksgiving Square's Glory Window, Paris, Texas' Eiffel Tower with Cowboy Hat, Fort Worth Water Gardens, Muenster Mansion in Waxahachie, Painted Churches of Texas (category in itself), Combine City in Amarillo, VW Slug Bug Ranch in Amarillo near the Cadillac Ranch, World's largest Cowboy Boots in San Antonio, etc

I sometimes quilt in my motorhome on our travels and on the picnic table out, too.

I'm almost finished with the cork angel
I should make this a UFO year.......nah where’s the fun in that!
I need at least 8 more months to complete projects from 2 years ago. Then another 12 months to complete projects from 2018. 😬🙃
Yes, more than a moment. But with our bad weather I'm already starting on them for 2019. Yay me!
