March 5 2014 Quilting Newsletter


Hello again, how are you today? I do hope all is well at your place. Iíve had a very busy sewing week and have achieved much. Iíve made loads and loads of bias binding that we use on the bibs for nursing homes. The homes give us their old towels that are no longer useful for the bathroom, and we recycle them into bibs for clothing protection during meals.

Iíve also put together about 12 quilt backs for quilt tops that will go to Diane, one of our volunteer long arm quilters. Diane does a marvellous job for us and always with a smile and easy going manner. And then Iíve also put together some smaller preemie quilts with pretty fabrics I have at hand. A very successful week where Iíve achieved much.

My guild quilt show is in October so I need to spend some time putting together a few quilts for the show. Thatís my plan for March! I truly believe that as a member of a quilt guild, it is my responsibility to make sure that I enter my share of quilts to help make the show a success.

I donít make quilts to win (although it's nice when it happens) Ė itís all about having a lovely full colourful show for the public to appreciate, and to attract new members to the guild. I like to try my hand at something new, to have a challenge at the same time. Iíll keep you posted with my progress.

Last week I posted a review on a complimentary eBook Iíve received from Leisure Arts titled ďBaby Itís YouĒ and hereís the link for you: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art182786.asp
