Hello to All. I've been a lurker on this group off and on for about 5
years or so. The information and help have been incredible. As many
before me have said...what a great group!
I do, now, find myself in need of some help, however. Is there anyone
out there participating in the Quilt Pink day at Pennington Quilt Works
in Pennington, NJ? I've been participating in their block of the month
and at last month's class picked up the instruction sheet for the Quilt
Pink squares they are planning for this Sat. Picked up my pack of fat
quarters and headed home. Can't make it to the shop that day but
decided I could certainly manage to make a few blocks to be dropped
off. Well....the instructions for the Sister's Choice block seem to be
off a bit. I went to my trusty local mentor and she agreed with me
that the instructions seemed a bit lacking. There's no finished block
size, so I can't even work backwards on how to make adjustments. The
shop closes at 5PM most days. Since I work till 5PM that's not overly
helpful. Didn't know if anyone had run into the same problem and had
managed to either figure out what the descrepancies were or had been
back to the shop for better instructions.
By way of introduction, I am a self-taught new quilter - about 5-6
years now. My first quilt was a double irish chain lap quilt for my
grandmother. Next project was a hand pieced tumbling block pattern for
the then new niece to be. Since then there have been two queen sized
quilts. Generally I machine piece and hand quilt. Still working on
the quilting on #2. Currently planning #3 but have to finish a baby
blanket and needlepoint christmas stocking for the new niece/nephew due
I have a DH and two QI's of the canine (chocolate lab) variety. Oh,
and dark chocolate is the best!
Thank you all in advance. Sorry for the length of the post but would
be ever so grateful for any help that may be out there. Not like I'm
not waiting until the last minute or anything....
P.S. Sorry if the posting is a bit off. Using Google groups and have
not done this before.
