March 3 2010 Quilting Newsletter


Hello quilters, another week has flown by, and itís time for me to pop into your life and have a quick chat.

Iíve had a lovely day today, having taught my Colour Class to some lovely quilters. I love presenting this class, there are a number of ďlight bulbĒ moments in this class and itís priceless to see their faces as the realisation of information sinks in. Colour Theory is not rocket science, you just need to be shown how to use your color wheel and how to ascertain the relationships between colors. To this end, Iím starting a Color Theory for Quilters series, the first of which will be posted NEXT Sunday the 7th March. So keep an eye out for that.

Iíve also been busy with my Linus Quilts. The project recently received a large donation of fabric that is ideal for binding of the Linus quilts. So Iíve been spending a number of nights, cutting them into 2 ĹĒ strips, sewing them together and then pressing them in half ready for use. And of course, Iím busy putting hexagons together for the Worldís Biggest Hexagon Quilt. It will be launched in May, and I will keep you posted about that. Hereís the link to the latest update about the Hexagon Quilt: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art4580.asp

I have been receiving lots of hits on the Quilting website, from quilters looking for cat blocks and patterns. So I spent an afternoon surfing the web and came up with 53 free cat blocks or patterns for you. Hereís the link to that article: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art4581.asp
Thereís been a bit of action on the forum recently. Donít forget to pop over every now and then and check out the topics that are being discussed. Hereís the link: http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=postlist&Board=43&page=1

So, on to my little gifts for you this week. Iíve found some really yummy stuff for you, I hope you enjoy them.
