May 8 2012 Quilting Newsletter
I think that’s why events such as quilt airings and fence hangings are so popular. Beautiful quilts hanging on everyday fixtures really make your heart sing! I have a number of quilts hanging on my walls at home. I think it helps to soften the blank walls, and of course it’s a chance to enjoy my hard work! Sure they get dusty, but a day in the fresh air makes the world of difference.
Being the editor of a quilting site enables me to receive complimentary copies of publications and DVD’s to review for my readers. I endeavour to give honest feedback about what I’m reviewing. I recently reviewed a DVD titled The Art of Machine Quilting and it’s by Barbara Shapel on the NinePatch Media group. Here’s a link to that review – I thoroughly recommend this DVD, it’s one of the better ones I’ve seen. http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art176305.asp
Don’t forget the forum is there for readers to contribute, ask questions or just browse through. Here’s the link to the forums: http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=postlist&Board=43
