That fabric wasn't mine, it was Sammyjams, I think. I'm hoping to meet her this summer at the Airstream Park here in sunny warm Minnesota (hopefully it'll be sunny and warm by then!).
Happy quilting!

Kay

I have a question for all of you crafty ladies... I just noticed a water stain on our white curtains. (2006 19ft Bambi). How I didn't see this before... I do not know. Anyway, the dry cleaner said that the stain is permanent. I am working out of town and will be shopping at Britex Fabrics in San Francisco on Saturday. Does anyone have the measurements for the front wrap around window? I neglected to measure before I left! By the way, Britex is 4 floors of heaven!

I live in SF and Britex is the bestest! Hydrogen peroxide can also used for bleaching fabric. That may work on a water stain. smiles

Yes, I agree with Pink1, peroxide might work. Also, an Oxyclean soaking might work. You've got nothing to lose at this point!

Hi, no stains, but the dry cleaner's wouldn't clean our Airstream curtains. [with the plastic guides] We washed ours at home. I would also find the leak or cause of the stains first.

No leaks in the trailer. My husband went over it with a fine toothed comb! We think that the previous owner must have taken the curtains down and stored them.. The water damage looks like it was on a fold. Anyway, I will try the peroxide / oxy clean solution.. If anyone is in San Fran on Saturday, I am up for coffee and fabric shopping!

My wife Mary just completed a Mini Quilt Project. I'll attempt to insert a pic and then let her describe the project....
http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-EIM3vcGvpr...0/DSCF0019.JPG

After a lot of hard work, the project is now done. This mini quilt was adapted from a Mary Hershcleb design "On the Road". The original pattern featured a "woody" station wagon pulling a yellow travel trailer. I first saw it on Pinterest and Rick found it mentioned on Airstream forums. But, we needed a mini quilt that fit our circumstances.

And now a little story about the process:

I found the pattern on line offered by Quiltbug.com, a neat site that has quilting patterns, fabric and offers some helpful free information about thread, needles and a french braid table topper pattern.

Having done paper or foundation piecing before, I was able to alter the pattern pieces to transform the station wagon into a red pickup and change the trailer into a silver bullet. I did have some difficulty getting the pickup wheels to line up properly,

but in the end, I prevailed. Persistence pays off! The body of the picture is machine quilted. I added a wavy inner border and chose not to bind the quilt as I ran out of matching fabric.

That is absolutely adorable! Will you share your pattern? It looks like a nice little project to work on inside of our nice little 19ft Bambi!

Reply to Laurel62 in reference to mini quilt: enjoy the project. Lots of little pieces but worth it in the end. Pattern is "On the Road" by MH designs. Think you will like the quilt shop site too. Mary😊

Hi! I just found this thread and am so excited. I do Yoyo quilts and always have a project with me when traveling. Always wanted to try piecing. Looking forward to the advice included in this thread. Sue
