    I still love viewing Sewing with Nancy! Her methods are easy to follow and have helped me in my quilting sessions.

    I gravitate towards modern quilting and I love how a traditional element like a Dresden fan template can be modified into something modern. I need a new table setting and will have to make this table runner. So cool!

    I am new to quilting, so my memories are in the making. Until now, I have favorite memories of watching MY sister’s quilts and yours develop. We’re attending the virtual Wisconsin Quilt Show 2020 virtually together!

    One of my quilting friends was headed to her Quilting Bee at her church hall and I asked to go along. She obliged and I was treated to a quilting production line of sorts. Two ladies raised a long 8′ table with those 6″ bed risers from Wal-Mart to make it easier on their backs while cutting fabric. Another lady busied herself with the pinning–I’d wondered how to do that and now I know. Still another lady was tying a quilt. There was discussion about how to tie and I found there’s more than one way. They were all so welcoming and willing to share their quilting information. It was a great time!

    I took my husband’s quilt which was made by his grandmother to be documented. When they hung the quilt to be photographed several women behind me commented about how beautiful it was. They had no idea that the quilt was mine. I had a renewed appreciation for the quilt.

    My quilting memory is making a Mardi Gras quilt at a retreat. I still have it. I miss Nancy zieman a lot. She was an inspiration to us all.

    My favoirite quilting memory is when I was about 12 my father (who’s mother was a seamstress) helped me cut triangles out of old clothes to make a quilt top.

  • Carol S.
    September 8, 2020

    My earliest quilting memory (and thus, one of my favorites) was sitting at the dining room table at my grandma’s house, and stringing like cut fabric shapes on a needle threaded with a double knotted thread. My grandma would later pull those shapes, as she hand pieced blocks for a quilt. I think I was 4-5 years old 🙂

  • Ann C

    I am a brand new quilter so I a still learning. My best memories are of watching all of Nancy’s shows. I loved her dearly because she taught me so much. I think this tool will help me immensely in my efforts to quilt. Thanks for the opportunity!

    One quilting memory is making a wedding quilt wall hanging for my niece with my Mother. We hadn’t sewn together for many years and it was great to reconnect with her in the process

    I remember fondly making a single quilt block for a new baby quilt being assembled by mom’s friends. I felt very grown up participating.

    I pieced the tops for the majority of my 24 nieces and nephews for their graduation gift. My mom did the hand quilting and presented them with the treasured gift. It was my honor to be a part of their gifts.

    My favorite quilting memory is sitting beside my mom piecing quilt tops when I was a young girl. She would sell them to buy my school clothes.

    My favorite quilting memory has to be participating in a Quilt for the Cure Challenge in which a group of us made blocks for a quilt for a raffle for breast cancer awareness. I remember doing an applique of a Scottish terrier in memory of mother and the little Scottie who was her last dog who then became mine.

  • Lorraine Alves

    My favorite quilting memory is the quilt my sister-in-law gave to my mother. It was made by her and her sisters and mother during a quilting bee. While I admired the quilt, I found the love and fun shared by these ladies inspiring.
