  1. Hi Linda, I was going through my quilts the other day and came across our international themed pieces.  I don't even remember the last theme we went with and where they might be.  Do you know anything about them?  Seems like Covid put an end to many things.  

    Thanks - Jean

  2. Shirley, did you sell all your Accuquilt dies?  I've been collecting this past year and have quite a few, but thought I'd check to see what you're selling.  I'm 74 now, but not ready to give up on making quilts and quilting them.  I am cleaning out a lot of books and other "creative" things I'm no longer interested in.  I can't believe how much "stuff" a person can collect over the years.  Anyway... let me know what dies you still have.  You may have a treasure I don't have yet.

    Thanks - Jean

      OK, I made an Excel file of those I am interested in selling. I hope that comes through ok. These are the old dies that are heavy 1" wood. There are a few GO dies at the end of the list. If you have any questions or need pics of anything, just let me know.

      Now I have to go mow some grass...between rains. haha

      Hi Shirley, sorry, I just had a chance to get back on my computer.  I don't have the Studio Accuquilt cutter, but I do have the large Sizzix and it will cut the Studio dies.  If you still have them I'd like the round flowers set 3 a b and c and the rose sampler set.    Let me know how much the total would be with shipping.  I can send the money by Pay Pal or check which ever you would prefer.

      By the way, 74 is a very good age.  Old enough to know better but young enough to still do it.

      Thanks - Jean

      I forgot to tell you where I live for shipping:  Otis Orchards, WA 99027

  3. I love the pieces you showed you cut with your laser.  That looks like a fun tool (toy ).  I bought a similar product and painted it.  Not nearly as nice as yours, but it was fun.  Yours are too pretty to paint.  What kind of wood do you use?  

    Here's my painted piece: 



  4. Hi Linda, the bag name and where to find it are posted on the Aug. 2nd question of the week.

  5. Jo Ann, I left the bag pattern name and where to buy it on the Aug. 2 question of the week.  Linda had asked for it too, so It's available to anyone who wants it.  

  6. Terri, left you a message and photo on the motor alignment for the IQ under your June 17th post about having to take off your motors.

  7. Deborah, if your hubby is a federal retiree, he can continue his medical through the government.  Of course it's more expensive than Medicare, but it covers more too.  I pay about $350 a month for ours and we have a $350 deductible per year, which isn't bad at all.  Of course it depends on what's available in your area.  We have quite a few plans to choose from and I have Kaiser.  They contract out with local groups so I don't have to depend on just them to choose a doctor.  Good luck with your hubby.  I would suggest he talk to his personnel person and they can tell him what he has available.  

  8. Well I ordered and installed the gate. That went okay after a phone call or two.  My question now is how hard is it to lift the gate for you?  It seems like you need a lot of arm strength to do that.  Did you say your hubby fixed it in some way so it was easier for you to get open?  I've just been leaving it partially closed so I can just swing it open. It's only for the dog (small 14 lbs).  We cordoned off a hallway for her to stay in when we got out to eat/shop etc.  I'll close it all the way when we do that.  Always something...

      Yes, dh knows I don't have a lot of hand strength so he did something.  All I have . to do is give it a slight tug to open it.  When it closes it kind of clicks in place.  Dh is out of town right now, but I will get ahold of him and have him post here what he did.  He won't mind at all.

  9. Hi Robin,

    I'm getting ready to order the pet gate you told us about and wondered if you were still happy with it or had any problems with it.   

    Thanks - Jean

    1. QuiltingwithGrace


      I'm LOVING it!  The best part is dh assembled it so that I don't have to slide anything to open it.  All I have to do is give it a gently tug.

      Hope you love it too!

      Thanks Robin!  Amazon to the rescue!

      As dh says, "Amazon is your friend.  Amazon Prime is your best friend."

  10. I don't have the pattern Liz, but in looking at it, I think you could come up with the pattern using half-square triangles, flying geese, square, and a triangle in a square.  Most pieced patterns are made up of common shapes.  These are probably 4 inch blocks.   I often make my own patterns when I see a quilt I like and can't locate the pattern for it.   I see two separate blocks that form the quilt.

      very true Jean!  I might wait to see if they sell off the kit on Black Friday.  I would love this quilt!

      Thanks very much :)

  11. Nancy, did you use a Sizzix or Accuquilt die to cut the curved pieces for your flag?  I just purchased the larger (had the smaller) one and you've given me a good reason to use it.

    1. nancySD


      I have the Sizzix and used the Wave die.  It is about 4.5x 5 inches, I think.  I think they are fun and I sure wouldn't cut those shapes by hand!

      I have a Sizzix too.  I love that machine!

  12. Suzanne, I might suggest a serif font for readability. A Times Roman is a bit more open and easier on aging eyes.
