Thanks to Alex, Simply Quilts (I still have about every show on tape) and her books, I got started quilting with her "Start Quilting" book. I also have her neutrals book and have a pretty good stash of those, too. Have made two neutral quilts so far and love them. Of course, I also like bright fabrics, etc.

Fi, I started quilting with Alex's book "Start Quilting" too. It is excellent. :D

Christmas is a generous estimate! Of course, you didn't specify the year.....

I loved the show with Alex as well, really got me inspired. I have been collecting for a scrap Irish chain for ages but loved the bow ties so much better. I am going to a retreat at the end of next month so will start cutting out my scraps for that instead.

Thank you Alex for a great show, you really got the creative juices going for everyone.

Lois.. those little bow ties make the best leader-enders !! Make up a few pieces and set 'em
by the machine and by golly ! they just grow like magic ! :D

Just learned about the "leaders/enders" thing. Can't wait to try it. BTW, Marilyn, I am in your neck of the woods without enough time to plan an extra road trip but sometime I am in NV I am hoping that can happen and we get to visit with one another. Nancy I flew over Blouder yesterday and thought of you. It's amazing how normal everything looks down there when you are miles high in the sky.

Hi Fi! I didn't know that Alex had a book on neutrals, I so want to do a neutral quilt some day.

Okay, if we're going to blame Alex then I've got a long, long beef with her! It started back in the days of Simply Quilts, which kept making me try new techniques and learn as much as I could about the quilting world. Imagine how much extra time and money I would have right now if she hadn't sucked me into this! And then she has the gall to team up with Ricky and provide me with this Web site. Now, along with no time and no money, I have even more information and way more friends than I can possibly keep up with! What was she thinking?? Imagine what my life would be like if she hadn't come along! :wink:

Ditto! Although I didn't discover Simply Quilts until it was off the air, but otherwise, I'm right there with you. For what it's worth, though, I suspect Alex could say the same thing about having way more information and way more friends that she can possibly keep up with. I'm sure having fun trying, though! Like Lorchen, I now have a stack of neutrals and try to buy at least one every time I buy fabric. I've now added black and white fabrics to my try-to-buy-one-piece-every-time list. But also thanks to TQS, I am absolutely loving my life right now! Nancy, I'm looking forward to seeing you in Houston this year!
