February 15 2011 Quilting Newsletter


Itís the middle of the week and time for me to say hello to all the Bellaonline Quilt site subscribers to my Quilters Quarters newsletter.

Did you know that there are approximately 3,380 subscribers who receive my newsletter every week? Thatís a lot of quilters and they come from all around the globe. I am so grateful to each and every one of you for taking the time out of your busy lives to enjoy a little fellowship with other quilters.

I taught my first class for 2011 on Monday. Itís an advanced needle turn appliquť quilt class with a twist. The quilt is called Floriade and as it suggests is a floral appliquť. The central block, which is about 24Ē wide, and placed on point, consists of a beautiful bouquet of flowers. The twist is, the student gets to design her own bouquet, using some of my templates for roses, pansies, hollyhocks and daisies and lots of leaf designs, and some of her own flower choices.

I love presenting this class, as I see the studentís blossom over the four or so months of the class. At the first lesson, thereís that tentative ďbut Iíve never done anything like this beforeĒ to the last lesson, ďoutta my way, Iíve got a design in my head!!Ē. I love to be part of this incredible growth and spreading of wings amongst quilters who are open to learning new things.

On Sunday I posted the last of three articles on the Block of the Months Iíve sourced from the web for your interest. These BOMís are commercially offered, so there is a cost involved. Hereís the link:

In a few weeks, Iíll start my articles on free BOMís that Iíve found Ė believe me thereís a zillion of them!

Iíve had a request for a pattern from a new Bellaonline reader, which I have posted on the forum this morning. Hereís the link Ė pop over and see if you are able to help her out.

So, onto my little pressies for this week. Iím endeavouring to offer lots of variety in the links and I hope you enjoy the selection this week.

Well, dear friends, Iím off to the shops, to get some food supplies and work out the miracle that will be tonightís meal! Hope allís well at your place and save some time this week to do a little quilting, even if itís only flipping through a quilt book. Look after yourself.

Cheerio for now
