What's on Ruthie Today

Here's what's on Ruthie today. She's been getting a work out this last week or so.

Today I was working on the red, white and blue quilt made by the ladies of Stash_Quilters on yahoo groups. It was going great until I ran out of the bobbin thread. I wound another bobbin and then couldn't get it balanced right. I wonder what I did to the bobbin to cause the problem. I was getting frustrated so decided to wait until Friday to give it another try.
Monday night at the Mt. Laurel Quilt Guild meeting we learned how to make Moravian stars. This is made from strips of paper and basic folds and tucks. Luckily there were a couple of people helping cause it took me a bit to get this figured out. And, I have enough to make one or two more stars. And, I have directions, with pictures. I'll keep you posted if I ever get another one done!

Happy Quilting All.


  1. Ruthie deserves a squirt of oil for all of her hard work.

    Love the red, white, and blue.

  2. That's a good looking quilt! Some Red and Blue for the Dukes! The stars make the whole red, white and blue Americana theme all the beter in your quilting too!

  3. Wow, KMAX is my son Kevin. Some of my quilting yabbering must be sinking in. Thanks Kevin. Love, MOM
