Quilt As Desired (Harriet Truman / Loose Threads Mystery, book 1) by Arlene Sachitano - book cover, description, publication history.
Table of contents

While he went to work on the milk, she poured a half-cup of his high-protein, low-residue, hairball-removing kibbles into his second ceramic dish. When he was taken care of, she quickly ate a bowl of Kix and went upstairs to take a shower. In little more than an hour, her first customer would be knocking on the studio door. She pondered as she washed what the first quilters might think if they saw how much the craft had changed since the first woman put needle to fabric in an effort to make a bed cover. When people first came to the New World they had to bring cloth with them to make the garments and bedding they and their family would need, without knowing if they would ever be able to obtain more.

Sewing small pieces together patchwork-style allowed them to use every scrap of fabric they had, re-using worn-out clothing and blankets as the filler. At first, all steps in the quilting process were done by hand with needle and thread.

Then, as people settled in communities, they began to use large frames to hold the quilt while they attached the top, pieced layer to the filling layers. To avoid having the frame taking up their limited living space, pioneer women held bees where everyone would work on one quilt so it could be finished quickly and the frame put away. Affordable bedding became available commercially, and electric sewing machines allowed those who wished to quilt to easily construct their project in their own home.

Nothing changed until king- and queen-sized beds became the norm and repetitive motion injury became household words. Women who made more than one quilt a year were developing wrist and shoulder damage from holding and turning large heavy quilts as they guided them under the needle of their home sewing machine.

Long-arm quilting machines are industrial-style machines manually guided over a fabric sandwich stretched onto rollers that feed the quilt top, stuffing or batting and backing fabric, allowing the operator to easily guide the stitching head around the surface in any pattern he or she desires. The machines are large, usually requiring their own bedroom or garage, and are also expensive. Most communities had one or more people like Aunt Beth who were skilled owner-operators, and who would quilt anyone's project for a nominal fee.

This was the job Harriet would be taking over while Aunt Beth was on vacation.

It was well within the realm of possibility she could ruin dozens of quilts before her aunt returned, and the idea weighed heavy on her head. She was in the kitchen again, wearing the fourth outfit she'd tried on after her shower, when she remembered the envelope. She retrieved it from her sweatshirt in the front coat closet and brought it back to the kitchen. She could count on one hand the times Aunt Beth had written anything longer than a shopping list.

Then I had to sew the rows together. This past spring I purchased a Pfaff Creative 2. Then I found out from my friend Gayle that I could purchase the entire block of the month locally. So for the past few weeks I have been reading directions, purchasing embroidery thread, and fabric. Not that I actually need fabric!!

I have a notebook that has the instructions in it so I can have that right next to my machine. I did some test blocks to determine what size I could do with my machine. Originally I thought I would be limited to 7", but now I figured out I can stitch 8" blocks. When I purchased my Creative 2. If you know their names please contact me so I can post them in the blog.

Peggy Mead took one of my workshops and I want you to know that she is perfectly sane. Or, I think she is sane. This little Grandmothers Flower Garden project is amazing. The template was so small I could not even hold it.

Quilt as Desired

It was sewn using the English Paper Piecing method. A quilt with some whimsy. Charlotte Noll made her quilt using Dipioni Silk. How cool is that? Great idea!

Quilting Window Episode 9 - Variegated Thread (Spool Quilt)

The South Florida Modern Quilts had a very nice exhibit at the show. This one was quilted by Meryll Warner. I am certain people in Florida see lizards all the time.

But in Pennsylvania, this is not a common event. I am intrigued when I see them.
