January 18 2012 Quilting Newsletter


Hello one and all, itís been a very wet week here in Brisbane. Typical weather for this time of year. We tend to dread the sun coming out after rain, because the air gets so heavy with humidity, and itís hard to move about without dripping little puddles here and there.

Iíve been busy on my blue and white quilt and have 11 blocks already made. Only about 100 more to go! Once I have a good stash of blocks Iíll write an article for you to see the progress. Iím really enjoying the appliquť. I suppose it is really my most favourite genre in quilting. I love the hand sewing, the gentle rhythm of needle in, needle out.

I like that itís always portable and I can take it just about anywhere and that there are not a lot of tools needed to accomplish the needle turned finish. I wonder what your favourite genre of quilting is. Iíll post a question on the forum and if you would like you can pop your answer there. It will be interesting to see what comes up. Hereís the link: http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/741478#Post741478

Thanks sincerely to those wonderful readers who responded to my call for help for my sister, regarding a good ocean pattern for her to make for her son. She has finally decided on the ocean waves pattern. Iíll keep you posted with its progress also.

Last week I posted an article that I have posted every year since I began editing this site and one that is very popular. Block of the Month programs. Iíve been surfing again and found a bucket full of free Block of the Month programs that have commenced in 2012. Itís early days yet, and Iím sure thereís going to be more launched over the next 5 weeks or so. In the meantime, pop over to the article and see the first ones that Iíve sourced. Hereís the link:
