March 11 2010 Quilting Newsletter


Hi everyone, Iím just finishing a lovely cup of tea after a very busy day today. And itís been like that all week. Thank goodness itís Friday tomorrow!!

In this week, Iíve given three lectures on copyright to my Quilting Guild and to students in the Accredited Teachers course run by the guild. Iíve taught a beginners needleturn appliquť class for four hours, Iíve convened (with enormous help from fellow crafters) our Sisters of Stitch afternoon, and Iíve spend about 5 hours cutting fabrics for Linus Quilts. Iíve sorted through about 6 bags of donated fabrics for Linus and have distributed them to those that can use them. Iíve delivered a car load of donations to our local day shelter for the homeless and tomorrow Iím presenting a four hour Intermediate Machine Quilting class. On Saturday (again with the help of fellow crafters), Iíll be putting a display up at the library where our Sisters of Stitch meet, to display our wide and varied talents, and to advertise the group.

On Sunday, Iíll be asleep I suspect!! If I donít answer my phone youíll know why. LOL. But donít misunderstand me, Iím very happy to be busy. It seems to me that Iím at my happiest when Iím busy, busy, busy!

Last Sunday I was very proud to post my first article on Creative Color Theory for Quilters. I included a number of graphics and will continue to do so throughout this series of articles. I have always used a color wheel from The Color Wheel Company and they have given me permission to use their wheel in these classes. If youíd like to learn lots, I recommend you get hold of a Color Wheel Company wheel and then youíll be able to have a ďhands onĒ learning experience.

Hereís the link to the Color article and the link to the Color Wheel Company to find out where you can obtain one (look to the bottom of the site).

http://www.colorwheelco.com/ the Color Wheel site.

I will add here that I have written my articles using the color wheel from the Color Wheel Company. Iíve been teaching this color class for about 8 years now, and have found this wheel to be the best for quilters. I will also add that I am not receiving any payment or special treatment for mentioning this site or company. It just happens to be the best one I found available to explain how color can be used by quilters.

Weíve had a few chats on the forum in the past week and I invite you to make any comments you wish to make here. Hereís the link: http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php/forums/43/1/Quilting
