Hi everyone, itís the middle of the week and a busy week for me here at home. Iíve been busy making Linus Quilts and theyíre turning out really well. I received 5 lots of 6 embroidered blocks from the LQ coordinator and Iíve been developing different ways to make these 6 blocks into a viable quilt. Iím so pleased with the result; Iím going to create these patterns for your all, over the next few weeks. The patterns will have lots of photographs and diagrams, and Iíll be happy for anyone to use them for your charities for children in need.
Iím getting through my stash of childrenís fabrics, and itís a good feeling to be finally using these fabrics Iíve been storing for a long time. When I run out, I wonít feel too bad about purchasing more will I?
Speaking of charity quits, last Sunday I posted an article on a simple Charity Quilt for you to make (must have charity on the mind at present). Itís a very simple quilt and I hope you enjoy making it. Hereís the link to that article:
All quiet on the forums this week, I guess everyoneís getting busy out in the lovely warmth and sunshine of Summer (for those in the northern hemisphere).
Iíve been having a bit of fun on the web this week and Iíve found these three little gifts for you. None of them are connected to the other, just three little ďgemsĒ I thought you might enjoy.
The first is a quilt quiz that is slightly difficult but fun to do. Hereís the link to the quiz:
The next is a simple little I spy quilt, with simple instructions:
And my final surprise is from a blog I regularly read and itís a lovely combination of sewing and cross stitch fonts for your computer. Have fun!!
Well, fellow quilters, thatís all from me this week. I do hope this email finds you all really well and happy and dodging the odd ďswine fluĒ gremlins.
Cheerio for now, take care and have fun quilting,
Judie Bellingham, Quilting Editor
