July 27 2012 Quilting Newsletter


Hi everyone, my apologies for being sooooo late with this weekís newsletter. I was too clever for my own good. I have been visiting my daughter who has recently moved to a regional town in Queensland about three hours from here. To save taking my computer up with me, I intended to use my daughters computer to send my newsletter but , you guessed it, I couldnít get it to work. No matter what I did, I couldnít get it going from her computer.

So please forgive me, I donít often mess up my timing for the newsletter, as I know that my readers do look forward to having it pop into their inbox each week. So I will hopefully make up for it by giving you DOUBLE the goodies than I normally send.

Whilst away, I was busy sewing curtains for my daughterís home. Itís a very old Queenslander and is probably over 100 years old (thatís old for us Aussies!! I see wry smiles on English and European faces!!LOL). Not one of the windows was the same measurement of any other in the house, so I had to painstakingly measure each to get it right.

Iím not very good at curtain making, but they turned out OK, and my daughter was very impressed. I am feeling muscles I havenít felt in years (in very odd places I might add!) as a result of climbing up and down on chairs to measure and fit. Anyway, good to be home and back with my darling, who incidentally managed quite well without me.

Last Sunday I posted an article about workshop requirements and posted a PDF list of things you might be needing when attending quilting workshops. Hereís the link to that article: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art177320.asp

Over at the Forum we had a request from a reader about French Braid quilt patterns and techniques. There were a couple of replies on the forum, hereís the link: http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/773672/quilting_a_french_braid#Post773672

So, onto my goodies for you this week. I do hope you find something useful amongst them.
