August 27 2008 Quilting Newsletter


Hi one and all, it's another Wednesday, so here I am at your service!! It's just starting to rain here, after a few months of very little rain. I just love that smell of the first 15 minutes of rain on the roads, and grass. The dusty wet smell that comes with the first few drops. I think that might be good food for my soul. What is good food for your soul I wonder?

I'm very happy to tell you that I've posted the next State Block in the Series of State Blocks. It's the block for South Carolina, and I had a hoot getting the instructions together! It is a 12 inch pieced quilt block pattern. You can find it here:http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art10197.asp

I'd like to know what you think of this block. Does it make sense, the instructions I mean. It helps me to know if I'm being clear enough in my instructions. If you'd like to comment, please use the forum linked here:
http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=postlist&Board=43 or if you'd prefer you can get me on my email: quilting@bellaonline.com

I'm busy on the State Blocks for South Dakota and Tennessee at present. I have been viewing the State websites to see the colours of their flags and am trying to emulate them as best I can in these State Blocks. I haven't included a quilt layout or a coloring in page for these blocks as had been done by the previous editor.

What I do hope to do with the State Capital Blocks that will start at the beginning of 2009, is to include fabric requirements for each block, to help those of you who wish to make a quilt using the block. I'll also be designing these blocks to a consistent 12" finished measurement, incase quilters want to make up a sampler of the Capitals that they've visited or like. So there's alot ahead of me, and I'm excited!!

So to my little gift for subscribers this week. Just a couple of funnies for you to enjoy over your coffee.

Quilt Jokes:

Two women walk into an old cabin, and there sitting on a chair is a skelton bending over a quiltng hoop, with quilt in frame. Cobwebs are hanging all over the room. One women says to the other - "Auntie always said she'd finish that king-size quilt or die in the attempt!"

Conversation overheard at the weekly Quilters Anonymous meeting: "I'm not a patch on what I used to be, I have this block and a permanent stitch".....

That's all for now everyone, I do hope you're all busy quilting and creating. Speak with you next week, till then, Cheerio and have fun quilting!!
