January 20 2010 Quilting Newsletter



Hi everyone, itís been another week already? Where does it go? Iíve been busy finishing the sewing for my daughter, and have spent some time helping sort through donated fabrics for our Linus Project. Last year our project alone donated over 1000 quilts to children in need in our community and it looks as though we might break that record this year.

Iíve also just completed a quilt Iíve titled ďYippee Kai AyeĒ as it has Prairie Points around the border. Itís very pretty and I used a ďLayer CakeĒ pack to make the quilt top and Prairie Points. It looks very effective and Iím going to teach this one through the year.

Iím meeting up with some embroidery friends today at a local library, to catch up with all the news and goings on. I donít see these ladies very often, but when we get together, itís usually a pretty noisy affair! We have the room at the library for the day, so we can come and go as we please. Itís always so wonderful to catch up with friends donít you think?

Last Sunday I posted an article with lots of links for various worldwide Fabric Challenges and contests. I tried to source as many as I could that I thought would be of interest to my Bellaonline readers. Hereís the link:http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art2275.asp . You may find something of interest for you to participate in this year.

Iíve got some pretty nifty gifts for you this week. Hope you enjoy them.

Cheerio for now
