April 22 2010 Quilting Newsletter



Hello everyone, itís just me popping in for a quick cuppa and a chat. Iíve just spent a lovely morning with a new friend Iíve made through my craft group Ė the Sisters of Stitch. Paz (my friend is Spanish) arrived here recently with her daughter and family and will be staying here in my town until December. Paz has very little English, but has joined our group and has been made feel very much at home.

I had Paz here at my home to cut some fabric up so she can make a quilt for her grandson. She is going to make an I Spy quilt and we had lots of fun choosing the fabric and cutting everything ready for sewing. The really funny thing is, you see, I donít speak Spanish. So weíve managed to get our message across with lots of charades, funny sounds and (thank goodness for translators on the computer), typing our conversation for translation.

This wonderful experience with Paz, solidifies my thoughts about quilters worldwide. We donít need to understand each otherís language to be able to communicate and understand each other. With quilting as our common bond, we can manage to get any message across. Perhaps we should be replacing some of the United Nations personnel with quilters from all walks of life and nationalities. Wouldnít that make for interesting debates!!

Last Sunday I posted the second article in the series Color Theory for Quilters. This article talks about one of the variations of the pure colors Ė the Tints. Hereís the link to the article for you: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art6740.asp

Iíve had some great feedback about these articles and Iím thrilled that youíre enjoying the subject.If you have anything to comment on within the Quilting site, donít forget the forum is available for you to make your comments in the safety of the Quilting forum that is moderated by me.
