Hi, Cynergist... I'm not a true quilter, have just done some baby quilts. My Mom is/was a quilter and we are living with her now. She had a stroke in '08 and lost a lot of her knowledge but can sit and sew simple quilts now. She taught me a little before the stroke (who knew we needed to get on with it?) and now I have seen her go thru the process several times (after Dad died in '09 she just started in making quilts. She slowed down for awhile but is back at it again) so that I know how to get it from A to Z and have done so with a few little quilts as I said, but I don't know anything about fancy... lol... I will take a quilting class one of these fine days when my time is less taken up with teenagers and elderly parent care!! (Can anyone say - SANDWICH generation?)

I would love to find an "older than me" lady who quilts and has one of those nice machines. I can do the first few steps, but once I have it all sandwiched together, it's the quilting process that I have trouble with. I would love to exchange some cleaning, or produce, or both to have her quilt it all together for me. I am saving old jeans right now to do a demin quilt. No quilting, just sew the squares, demin one side, flannel the other, seem demin side up, cut slits in seam, wash and fray.

FarmerValerie, we take ours to a Monogram shop who does quilting when we get to that point!! Embarassed That's for larger quilts. For the small ones, I have just run straight lines on the regular machine... none of that fancy meandering or anything. My Mom did some pretty intricate stuff in the past, though, but she can't manage that now since the stroke. She has the templates for making different designs, but I can't use them!! Not to that yet!! They have quilting classes and guitar lessons at the gym I go to... so one of these days I'll avail myself of both!!

You ARE a True Quilter

Sure you're a true quilter Kerrie Jo. Baby quilts are no less quilts. The process is the same, so anything you can do small, you can do big.

It's nice that your Mum is able to get back into it even after a stroke.

Piecing the top is a tad bit more effort than regular sewing, but it's the same technique, you can do it!!!

Kim, I checked out your blog....the video with the local news in Maryland was very cool! I am a newbie gardener, but I am so taken with Mel's SFG method that I have forced everyone I know to come and look at my boxes. I've been preaching so much to everyone I know that my husband finally joked that I should start teaching SFG to people. I told him there was a course to do just that. He is now encouraging me to take the course and start teaching the method in our area. I would absolutely love to help our local elementary schools set up their own boxes to help teach the kids! Thanks for the inspiration!

Kim, you will love blogging, and it will be a great way for your students to keep up with you!!! Don't let it overwhelm you, post what you can when you can, you control it, it does not control you. I had people start telling me how and when to blog and I just stopped, I'm slowly getting back into it, but I don't get upset if I don't update. I do love it though.

Sarah - I think you SHOULD become a certified teacher! LOL I think you win the prize for Commando SFGer of the Year. I started with the correspondence course but jumped at the chance to finish at the 3-day symposium in UT.

FarmerV - Thanks SO much for the hints. You've put me more at ease. Now there's NO pressure to "perform". And I don't mind that it's not fancy.

Dorothy you have a spectacular garden. How long does it take for marigolds to bloom? I think maybe I should have started mine long before the vegetables.

I'm so jealous of your peach tree. I wish I could have a couple of fruit trees myself.

Reading through your blog post, I nodded, smiled and completely identified! It will be fun to follow along with your adventure. I'm starting my own first adventure with sfg this year too. I'm sure our husbands could commiserate on projects started gang busters and ending in giant weed piles (or scrapbook paper piles, or half knitted piles of yarn, or or or LOL!) Print that picture of you in your baby garden and tack it on the fridge...I can just *feel* your joy!

I got rid of all the scrapbooking stuff, but I still have all the yarn around! You 'do' get me!

I read this to my husband is and his

He just reminded me of the jewelry making venture...

You made my day!!!
