July 22 2010 Quilting Newsletter


Hi one and all, hope this email finds you busy creating (doesn’t matter what!!). I’ve been creating a mess in my sewing room. I’m busy making two different projects.

The first is a quilt that I’m making with a friend that we hope will be ready to enter in the Queensland Quilters Quilt Show in October. We are entering the quilt in the “theme” section, this year being Log Cabin. We’re having lots of fun, lots of giggles and boo boo’s and it’s a little like the blind leading the blind. So it will be interesting to see the final creation!! I’ll keep you posted.

The other project is a pair of quilts for a friends twin granddaughters. They’re going to be very much the same, but with subtle differences. Can’t wait to start.

I love it when I get lovely feedback about the various links I attach to my weekly newsletter. I received the following comments from Nancy in IN and Charlotte in FL.

Congratulations to Nancy in IN who “used the cupcake pattern, made smaller and only used 4 for a birthday placemat/doll blanket for my 4-year old GD. I used fabrics that had been used for her clothes and fabric that her other grandmother had used. I embellished with rick-rack, buttons, and lady bugs. I am planning a 6 cupcake one for the other GD. Fun to make.” Well done Nancy and thanks for letting us know.

Also, I received a lovely email from Charlotte of Florida who loved the circular string link. Thankyou ladies for your kind words and comments. It is food for my soul every time I receive such lovely contact from my readers.

Last week I posted an article titled: Redwork – History and Patterns. A previous editor had written an article about Redwork, and I have updated that article and included lots of links of great free and not so free redwork patterns and designs. Here’s the link: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art2094.asp

We’ve had some action on the forum this week. Ruby is looking for an Irish Chain pattern with a star in the centre. If you can help Ruby please make your contact through the forum. Feel free to use that forum for making any comments you would like to share with your fellow readers. Here’s the link to the forums: http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php/forums/43/1

Now for my goodies for this week. Lots of lovely interesting bits’n’pieces for you. Enjoy!!

http://candacetodd.blogspot.com/2009/06/hooded-doll-blanket-tutorial.html this is a tutorial for a hooded doll blanket, but I thought would be extremely useful for neo-natal wards for preemies.

http://goodygoody.typepad.com/goody_goody/2009/05/bitty-bug-pincushion.html sorry, another pin cushion, couldn’t resist!

http://iammommahearmeroar.blogspot.com/2010/03/here-comes-gunny.html A great idea for kiddie quick clean ups!!

http://maureensvintageacquisitions.blogspot.com/2010/03/arm-chair-sewing-caddy.html I love this victorian crazy quilted arm chair sewing caddy

http://www.chiseledincloth.com/blog/categories/patterns/free-easy-applique-patterns/ Here’s some cute appliqué animal patterns for you.

Well, dear quilters, that’s it from me this week. I’m off to get some rotary cutting underway. Stay well and happy till next week, when I’ll pop in to say hello.

Cheerio for now
