August 5 2009 Quilting Newsletter


Hi everyone, Iím running late with this newsletter this week. Iíve been chasing my tail all week, but never-the-less, Iím here, phew!!!

Itís only weeks from spring here in Brisbane, and Iím amazed at the prolific natives in my garden that are sprouting forth the most beautiful flowers. These natives are notorious for attracting the bird life and itís a very noisy backyard at my place at present. Various species of birds fuss and fight over territory and honey filled blossoms. Itís a joy to sit in my sunroom and just watch the performance. Iím sure thereís plenty of honey and nectar for all, and that every bird leaves our yard with a full belly.

Iíve been busy presenting a design class to a group of quilters. The class runs over two weeks. The first class covers the theory of design, but with the constant slant of how it affects us quilters. The second class is all hands on with creating two different designs. I find the students get a real buzz from this class and thereís a lot of aha moments. Iím developing some articles on designing for quilts to present to you further in the year.

Last Sunday I posted an article with a bucket load of websites that sell quilting fabric on line. I had a reader ask me for recommended websites. I use some of them, and Iíve had others recommended to me. So have a look at that article. Hereís the link: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art1320.asp

Thereís been some lovely chat on the forum. Some of the readers have posted photos of their recent quilt creations Ė hereís the link to the forum:

My gifts to you this week are a couple of gorgeous items that you can make in a trice. Firstly, a pair of Summer Slippers. Theyíre made with fabric and ideal for those who donít like to go bare foot during the summer.

The second is a delightful doily pincushion that I found whilst surfing last week. Very pretty, very useful.

Well, thatís all from me this week. I do hope this newsletter finds you all well and keeping busy with your minds and your fingers. Stay well and talk again next week.

Cheerio for now
