WWQP Bulletin Board

Thursday, April 21, 2016

Please join us!

Thanks to Kathi in Idaho I have just joined the new WWQP Facebook page. It is a closed group, so you have to go there to join up. You can see and read the page without joining but must be a member to post. Facebook is not everybody's favourite social media but it is fast and accessible and easy to use and a closed group is pretty safe. I manage a page for my feral cat rescue and am a member on a number of others and have never had a problem.

So this is your invitation to pop over to

and join the group there. It would be lovely to see some more of the old crew over there! And I can safely promise for those who have long memories -- no flame wars. It is a closed group with moderators. And did I mention it is easy to use?  :)

Non Basting Quilting Frame Free


Back in the day I lived here at WWQP, traded many fabrics etc. and posted about projects. I seldom do any sewing or quilting now and that's way I'm posting. I have a very nice adjustable non-basting quilting frame that was given to me. I used it a few times, but it now needs a new home where it will be loved and used. If you live near Columbia, Florence, Cheraw, or Camden, SC and are interested in having this frame please contact me. I have contacted the one guild in my area but no one was interested. Seems almost all hand quilting is done by machine now. That's sad. There has to be someone that still hand finishes their quilts. Below is more information about it. Please, help me by sending this on to guilds in your area if you are in SC.

Will hold a top up to 65ā€ wide comfortably (maybe wider). Locally handcrafted from bamboo. Adjustable height up to 4 foot. The frame tilts up and down and measures 73ā€ X 37ā€. The frame can be taken apart for storage. Free for local pick up. I live about 30 miles north of Florence, SC.
I have had the frame for around five years now. To date I have used it to finish three quilts. However, it is just too large for my small house. Iā€™m trying to find someone that would like to have it. It is made from bamboo wood, has been well taken care of. Email me at lightningsj at att dot net

Cotton Flannel as batting?

I want to do a lightweight batting in the next 2 quilts for the grandsons.  They have moved from almost on the Canadian border to the state of South Carolina, in the USA.  As they both want the "minkie" or fuzzy warm backing on the twin quilts I think that a heavy batting would be too much.  Although the Minkie is polly, the rest is cotton.  Has anyone out there used this?
Or do you think it's a bad idea?

Testing posting

Tuesday, March 31, 2015


I was cleaning my sewing studio when the American Patchwork and Quilting magazine arrived this winter. The magazine had a quilt-along feature using 4-patch blocks. I happened upon tiny 4-patches of diawabo scraps in  my clean up. I loved the fabrics so much I saved even the tiniest bits. This 21"x 23" quilt is my result. As usual for me, the quilting will wait for I'm a piecer at heart!

Sue's Posts

I am putting Sue's posts here to see if there is interest out there. Sue is a quilt shop owner in Germany who wants to know if others are interested in reviving our conversations.

I am really frustrated about not being able to post here any more. I have written to Eric twice, he replied to my second mail but there have was a solution. This BB seems to be soooo quiet - I would love to revive it, but how? Make a new board somewhere else that actually works for everyone? Let me know what you think!

What a pity that this fabulous Bulletin Board sort of "died", don't you think so? What would you say to moving this to a different kind of discussion board, like a phpbb board system? Just an idea... we have been quilting together for years (since 1999) and I always think it is hard to give something like this up just because of technical problems. I haven't seen postings for ages!

Looking for group member

Sue in Germany posted the following on October 25, 2014 in the
cBloggeromments section. Seems she can comment but not post so I thought I would post here for her so that more could see the request. The name does not ring a bell for me.

I still am not able to post. However, I am looking for a former member of the BB - Karen Bowlzer of Durham, United Kingdom. Anyone remember her? We made a blue and yellow star quilt for her. If anyone has a contact address, email address, facebook page of her, please let me know, I need to mail something to her. Thanks a bunch! Sue in Germany
