I found something I think some of you are looking for. At least I think I remember someone asking about Moda's Happy Camper Fabric.

I found a quilt shop in Custer, South Dakota that still has some of the fabric. I don't know if she has any left on the bolt but she did have at least 1 of the following

Layer Cake
Jelly Roll
Fat Quarter Bundle
5in Charm Pack
Triangles (can't remember what Moda calls them)... I think she had a few of these.

She also had some other of the lines that are harder to find. I picked up one Happy Camper charm pack for my trip quilt but painfully left the rest. I don't know if she will ship but I figured if you're really interested you can call her. Anyone interested can pm me or google The Quilt Shop for the number....

Sad for me as we were in Custer, SD a few weeks ago. Had I known there was a place to get some of these fabrics, I would have jumped on it.

I talked to them again before we left. They are more than willing to ship. If you really want them give them a call. If you do tell Sue the lady with the Great Dane said Hi.

When were you there? Did we almost cross paths? We were there from June 28th - July 4th.

We each started one on Sat. at 1:15 and I totally finished mine by Monday afternoon. Would be a great way to use up scraps, too.

Happy Summer Sewing to all of you,

Gloves?

As I furiously quilt about three hours a day (while the kids have computer and silent reading time) I have to ask...

Has anyone tried the lycra style support gloves for quilters? I'm starting to ache a little and was wondering if they would help. I've also seen where people teach themselves to switch hands- which I might try on a less detailed project. On this one, I wouldn't want to dis-honor my Smithsonian pattern!

I swear by my pretty floral bonnet I am going to finish this quilt by the deadline!!!!

I found the gloves to be uncomfortable, but thats me.
they may work for you. However, this last quarter
at school I really overworked my hands and wrists
and even had to go to the Dr. So proceed with caution!
Smiles,
Pink

Carmilla, going back to post #1, would you tell me about your quilting frame? What kind and where to get one like it? How to set a quilt into the frame? I have decided to buy a good frame for handquilting for myself. Also, two friends and I are trying to put a twin quilt top, backing, and batting onto a floor frame at a nearby church, and we obviously do not know what we are doing! Advice would be SO appreciated. Thanks for all. ~G
