    Hi Gayle,

    I am glad I found you. I hope to be able to keep up with you here. I am sad about Chat. I have made so many friends there and learned so much that I am hanging on and hoping it gets better because I would really hate to lose touch with some of the members.

    Miss you much,

    Hello Gayle,
    I was one of the women at your shop today. Thank you for sharing all your quilts with use. I was truly inspired by your techniques, your quilting and your hand dyes. Thanks again.

    Hi Gayle,
    I also attended your presentation today. You shared many good ideas. Your work is amazing. I have been trying to make the leap to art quilts for about a year. Took a couple classes at quiltuniversity.com
    I do fine until I get to the OK now make your own design and then I freeze. If you are teaching an art quilt class anywhere in western Pa. let me know

    Hello Gayle,
    Enjoyed everything you shared with our group on Wednesday!! I’m more of a traditional, hand quilter and you opened my eyes to another quilting world. Thank you!

    Hey Wombie,

    Did you want to be a mentor to one of our Thornton High School students who loves quilting? You would only be able to do it online, via email or whatever.

    Let me know.

    Happy almost 55th birthday!

    Your Wombie

    Hi Gayle, Re: Photo Transfers. I have some Wintergreen and I thought all you did was to take a picture on a Epson
    copier put the print side down on paper and use Wintergreen on the back and use burnish tool to transfer the picture. What am I doing wrong???
    Thanks, Wyn Flo

    Wyn Flo,
    I never tried wintergreen, nor do I even know where to get it. When I wrote about my method, I was only talking about what worked for me, not about the right way or best way.
    Ok, so now I have to go see if I can find anything about wintergreen!

    Hi Gayle, you mentioned in your post about snow dying that you have access to muslin scraps. I am a member of the Heartstings Group. I make quilt tops for charity. I go through lots of muslin which I use for string block foundations. If ever you have more than you can use, please let me know. I would be happy to pay your shipping costs if you were willing to donate some muslin scraps.

    We already donate to our local quilt group (that I belong to). This group makes over 100 charity quilts a year. And sometimes I use the extra to dye just for fun and to learn new techniques.

    I LOVE your space on the web! Hope I can get some inspiration from such a talanted person! What is the name of the quilt at the top of the page? Did you do it? It is STUNNING!

    A pleasure to meet you and can’t wait to see more!

    Nice to “meet” you Dawn. The quilt at the top (today, because I change the header often) is in the book Bella Bella Quilts. You can buy the book at your local quilt shop, Amazon, Borders, and other book stores. And yes, I made the one in the header.

    Hi Gayle – haven’t finished the batik quilt yet (damaged index finer from a rotary cutter accident), can’t stay on task, and now – I broke a screw on my Bernina and need to find a replacement so I can put a regular needle back on the machine. Anyway, love your blog & still plan to send this off to you someday soon! Hope all is well!
