June 3 2010 Quilting Newsletter

Hi everyone, hope all’s well at your place. It’s the second day of winter for me here in Brisbane, where we have cold nights, but superb sparkling sunny days. I’ve been having a cleanup in my sewing room (I seem to do this regularly), and it’s looking fresh and empty!!

I am in the process of setting up a Linus Project on the Sunshine Coast. Hence, the cleanup. I’ve purchased eight big plastic containers and all are completely full of fabrics, batting and cottons ready to be created into wonderful Linus quilts for those in need in the Sunshine coast community. It’s exciting commencing a new group and the feedback has been tremendous. Not sure how many volunteers to expect next Monday, it should be a real buzz.

I posted another “freebie” article last Sunday. This time it’s Free Star quilt and block patterns. I have lots of requests from readers for interesting star quilt patterns, so this will be one of probably three articles over the next few months on free star patterns. I hope you enjoy them.
Here’s the link to the article: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art9067.asp

Before I go to my gifts for you this week, I need to tell you I think I deleted some 5-6 emails sent to me over the past few weeks. I didn’t realise that my mail bin was full, and during deleting, I accidentally deleted some incoming mail. If you sent me an email in the past 2 to 3 weeks, would you please resend them and I’ll reply to them asap.

So onto my little gifts for you this week.

Cheerio for now
