May 12 2011 Quilting Newsletter


Weíve had visitors this week and itís been wonderful catching up with all the gossip and news. Our dear friends live 2000 miles from us, so we only see them on rare occasions. They live in southern Australia and of course have enjoyed the beautiful weather we have here in the subtropics. Gorgeous crystal clear days and cool nights Ė paradise!

Havenít touched a needle for a week and am feeling the withdrawal symptoms! Will get busy during the weekend and finish off some of the hardanger needle cases Iíve started for our handicrafts table at the local church fair. I love making these needle cases, as they use up scraps of evenweave fabric that I have left over from bigger projects and it allows me to have my head and create without a pattern.

Last week I posted an article showing a really easy way to sash a quilt top, without the angst that goes with matching seams. It took me quite a while to get the instructions right, so I hope you will enjoy making this quilt. Hereís the link to that article: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art171480.asp I have been busy making quilt tops for boys for our Linus Project and this is a great pattern to do that with. Iím using madras cottons that Iíve collected over the years and theyíre going to look fabulous.

All quiet on the forum front ladies Ė how about popping over and making a comment? Itís your forum; I just moderate it, so letís get some chat going. Hereís the link to the forum:

Cheerio for now
