April 27 2010 Quilting Newsletter


Hi there, itís just me saying hello. Hope allís well at your place, autumn is making its presence felt here, and itís rather lovely to wake up to coolish mornings. Much easier to walk in the cool mornings than the humidity of summer.

Iíve been busy finishing off our ďportionĒ of the Worldís Biggest Hexagon Quilt. Yesterday I posted it off to the organisers who will put it into three layers and machine quilt it, ready for the presentation to the Guinness Book of Records on May 11th. About 9 of my Sisters of Stitch volunteers worked feverishly to put the rosettes together, and then I spent the better half of three days, completing the piecing, and then taking all 2350 papers out of the backs, together with thread and then pressing and tidying up the quilt top. Big Job!!

Iíll be at the presentation day, and Iíll take lots of photographs and post them on the Quilting website the following Sunday for you to enjoy.

Last Sunday I posted an article containing lots and lots of free patterns of animals. I get lots of requests for animals, so hereís the result of a few days surfing. Hereís the link: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art8361.asp . Hope you enjoy them.

BTW, Iíll be posting the next instalment in the Color Theory for Quilters next Sunday, and it will focus on the Tones. Look out for that wonít you.

Things have been quiet on the forum, donít forget, itís your forum and feel free to make comments there. Itís free and entirely safe. Only interested quilters use the quilt forum, I moderate it and itís fun to be in touch.

Now, onto my little gifts for you this week. Thereís so much ďstuffĒ out there for quilters, I do hope you donít mind me bringing some of them to you each week. So hereís the lot for this week:

Well, my dear quilting friends, I must away, my daughter is due here tomorrow to attend a funeral, so I must clear the spare bedroom for her. (I need a spare, spare room, if you get my drift!!).
Take care and remember to have fun quilting.
Cheerio for now
