Knock, knock, it’s me again. How are you this week? I do hope you are keeping well and getting some quilting done. I’m trying very hard to keep a steady flow of hours on my quilts that I hope to enter in my guild’s Quilt Show in October. I know I have to remain consistent with my time and spend at least 1-2 hours a day on them. It’s easier said than done! Anyway, I’m very much an optimistic quilter so I’ll push on in total belief that I’ll get them finished! (Sand and my head are one on many occasions!)
Last week I reviewed a great book titled “Beginner's Guide to Art Quilts Book” This is a great book, published by Leisure Arts and Banar Designs. Here’s a link to that article for you: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art174327.asp
Don’t forget the Quilting forum is there for you to use. You can post queries, comments or just have a chat with other quilters. To participate in free, fun online discussions, this site has a community forum all about Quilting located here –
So onto my goodies for you this week. Have fun!
