Many lists are irritatingly strict concerning personal posts. I am glad that we have a bit of leeway here on QHL and I am thankful to Kris and thenon-complaining list members for that privilege. The post concerning the loss of Newbie's father reminded me of how lucky we are to mention these personal milestones and tragedies and grief shared is certainly grief lightened. I'm certain that Pepper Lynn Cinda many others have beenlifted up in their heartbreak by members of the list. So many of us have met at national shows or know each other from the AQSG seminars - we are truly friends not just screen names that appear from an atmospheric fog tolight up our computers.   WHen my brother - and only sibling - died less than 2 years ago I was amazed at the number of cards I received. But that was nothing compared to the literal avalanche of cards when I lost my daughter a year ago today. I received cards from list members I've never met who remarked how they had enjoyed laughing at my ridiculouos posts - a precious thing. My granddaughter has every card in a basket and thumbs through them occasionally. I'm sure that today will be one of the days that she reads them all over again.Now heartache has struck again. I lost my sweet little mama Dec. 20th. We were inseparable and totally co-dependent in a loving "how can I help you today?" way. I cannot imagine my life without my personal 95 pound Mitey Mouse and I'm just a slobbering crybaby. She has been with methrough every trial every sorrow every evil of my life - and now with the advent of the worst nightmare possible she is gone. Poof. Just gone.   My brother's ashes were never interred for reasons unimportant but hewanted to come home to the little country church where my grandparents areburied. And Laira requested cremation as well with no request as to where her ashes should go. Then my Mom decided that if my brother was with her parents that's where she wanted to go as well. SO they were all three buried together two weeks ago boxes touching for eternity. I never knew grief and loneliness until I saw all three of them together in that unforgiving hole in the earth. It is a lot to lose.  When people ask how I'm doing I have a very hard time saying "FIne thanks." I want to say that I am actually feeling quite gutted - not butchered as my outward body appears intact. But gutted is the word that comesto mind.  I respectfully request no cards this time. I think I am 'sympathied out'. And there is no reason for yall to have to buy stock in Hallmark. I've just been holding this hurt close to my chest and haven't been able to talk or to tell anyone - the words won't come out of my mouth. Thanks for giving me a place to finally openly admit that she is gone it hurts and even though it's something we all go through right at this moment it feels as if no one in the entire world could hurt so badly. And itis good to have friends.  Teddy Pruett

Subject: Grout Museum Quilt Retreat From: Karan Flanscha <sadierosecfu.net> Date: Wed, 12 Jan 2011 14:49:21 -0600 X-Message-Number: 2

I thought some midwestern quilters might be interested in the events below:

Hello Quilters,

You may be aware that the Grout Museum is holding its 6th Annual Cabin Fever Quilt Weekend January 28 and 29. There are still spaces and openings for this event.

This year we are featuring Gerald Roy of Pilgrim and Roy fame. Gerald will be giving a lecture during Friday night=92s dinner. He will also give a gallery talk (this years 17th Annual Quilt Exhibit is =93Blending The Old and the New: Quilts by Paul D. Pilgrim=94) and he will be teaching a class on =93Choosing a Color Palette for Making Quilts=94. We will also be offering the Finish-it workshop ran by the Vintage Quilters, plus there will be plenty of good food, vendors, prizes and more (including a special showing of the Pilgrim/Roy annual quilt challenge, which will be up for a short time starting January 19 through the quilt weekend.) All the information and schedule is included in the link below.

So, if you have an unfinished project that has you puzzled, or you need a refresher course on color and quilt design by a Nationally known teacher, or you want to gather with friends old and new and get out of the house and have time to yourself (with friends of course) and eat good food, plus more, this weekend is for you. We always have fun!

Below is the link to the Quilt weekend. For more information feel free to call myself - Robin Venter or Christy Decker or reply in the email. The museum phone number is 319-234-6357

Hope to see you on January 28-29, and if you can=92t make it for the weekend, you only have until January 29th to view the exhibit =93Blending the Old With the New: Quilts by Paul D. Pilgrim=94 and the challenge exhibit.

Sincerely,

Robin Venter

Exhibit Curator and Quilter

Hi Judy, We will be featuring this & other examples of patriotic calicoes, including prints for the Confederacy, in our forthcoming book and exhibition on Civil War textiles. These items are documented to the Civil War era, both by their family histories and by their construction, in the case of patriotic calicoes made into garments. At this point, we have not identified the manufacturer, although the Confederate prints certainly came from England. If we find out more, we'll let you know--and if you find the manufacturer, please tell us!

Glad you all had the laugh, it was intentional.  I was going crazy hearing the snowplows scraping 96th Street all night long, kind of overkill for this week'sstorm after the NYC mayor was so roundly criticized for failing to clean up after last week's. Central Park sure looked beautiful earlyin the morning as the mini blizzard swirled aroundthe white outlined trees, very 19th century.  As for the Grout (there should be apostrophe S, don't you think!)although I knowthere's abarbed wire museum and such, I could not really imagine one for grout (after all Judy, it's the same substance, right, just different colors at your place?!)  Speaking of Museums, if you are coming into NYC do stopby at both folk art museum locations on West 53rd St and at Lincoln Centerto seetheir quilt shows; many exampleswill befamiliar toyou, butstill, it'swonderful to have so many quilts on view in NYC, a town of many many museums.Call or stop by me if you are around.  Laura

My DH and I are going to be traveling to Raleigh, NC next week (last week in Jan.) and to Myrtle Beach the following week. I am wondering if there are any quilt exhibits or quilting activities in those areas (or nearby). We have been to New Bern from Raleigh, and Charleston, SC from Myrtle Beach, so know those places are not too far out of the way. If anyone has any suggestions for any interesting activities, and for inexpensive but good restaurants, especially in Myrtle Beach, I'd appreciate it. We know it won't be warm, but should be warmer than Buffalo, NY. Thanks, Linda Hunter

I knew there was a 'sister' quilt to the V&A's Tristan quilt (/coverlet) but I didn't know its name until today. The header of this email is also the title of a new English translation of a monograph about the Guicciardini coverlet published December 2010 by Edifir, a publishing house in Florence. I am told that this publication is 'a full study of the Bargello piece, information that is equally pertinent to the one in London.' The Italian publishers do not yet have it on their website, but in the interim some copies are available direct from Kathryn Berenson.

Apparently this publication includes much that is pertinent to the V&A's example, including possible origins, provenance, materials, techniques, historical review etc. and a technical section documenting the research leading up to the conservation work and describing the innovative techniques used. Full details of the publication as sent to me, a lovely photograph, and name-checks of the contributors, are detailed on here:

Hi Everyone,

I just got done talking to Cinda Cawley who is once again in the hospital. She is in good spirits, but would love to hear from her many friends. I told her she didn't have to do this (another hospitaliation) to get our attention, but she insisted, in true Cinda fashion, she wants all the attention she can get. So, if you get a minute, she would love to hear from us all. She hopes to be home next Monday. She has access to her cell and email at the hospital.

I am making a reproduction quilt of an 1850's baby quilt. I have found afabric that "works" well in it. It is a poly/cotton blend gingham. It isonly a small amount. Less than 6 inches X 6 inches. What am I "risking"using it? I am thinking about 1970's and 1980's quilts. I know I have seen "fuzzing" after washing several times. I don't plan to wash this or USEit. It is for demonstration purposes. I just can't find 100% cotton ginghams. Any idea? Thanks, Lynn Gorges

It's your quilt, and your work. If it works, it works. But, if you can get your hands on cotton after all, it would be better.

I have worked on treasured modern quilts that need repair on cotton/poly blends, and they are often very difficult. The fabrics wear differently than cotton - and the "hand" is so different when you are trying to ease fit,or fold an edge, that I am always reluctant to take any on if they need more than basic attention. Also, they sometimes fray like crazy...another challenge in sometimes narrow seam allowance.

If your quilt won't be heavily used, though, it may not be enough of an issue to slow progress.

The polyester blend looks different. It has more sheen. Over the years, the cotton will get duller with washing--the blend won't. If you don't wash, they will still fade differently.

I'm speaking from experience here!

For the short term, I don't think it will matter.

Also, you CAN find 100% cotton gingham, but it takes some looking. I have some navy and white, if you want it. Kim

Re: gingham

Hello, Lynn Gorges! You asked about using a poly/cotton gingham in a repro piece. I wouldn't want to use it because it has a different look, a different feel, it wears differently and shrinks differently. I know you don't plan to launder it, but if someone spills a big cup of tea on your sample, you may need to was it. =sighAsk me how I know..

I have some checks I could send to you. If you want to shop for new gingham or apron checks for your sample piece, there are many available now. Hancock's of Paducah has at least a dozen, all cotton, and Kaufman put out a line of yarn dyed cotton checks called Carolina Gingham--all 100% cotton.

Bright blessings! ~Donna Laing

Elaine - thanks for the fast response, I will check this out asap. I know how popular the Forgetting Piece by Piece Exhibit was this past season at the Shelburne Museum. This might be a bit hard for me at this time tho, as my husband of 56 years has just started on the long road of this horrible afflication - it is not a bright future for us, tho at this time we can still laugh as some things. Hope you are warmer where you are - it is heading way below zero here in Vermont by Monday morning......can not wait for Spring. Mitzi from South Burlington,.VT
