July 6 2011 Quilting Newsletter
We rely solely on donated fabrics, and luckily quilters are very generous with their stashes. Mind you, some like the opportunity to clear out their stashes, only to go to the quilt shop and buy more up to date fabrics. I have a stash you can’t jump over, and I’m proud of it. It gets used, and added to constantly. I’m not ashamed of having so much fabric. When I’m looking for a certain type of fabric, for that certain type of quilt, I’m bound to come up with something that is suitable. It’s a quilt thing, isn’t? We like to have stuff on hand! LOL
Last week I posted another tutorial in my Basic Blocks Plus series, giving you interesting blocks in measurements of 6”, 8”, 10” and 12” blocks. This week I’ve focused on the Square within a Square block. Here’s the link to see that tutorial: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art172248.asp
I’m going to continue with this series over the next 12 months. If you have a particular block you’d like me to showcase, just contact me through the email on the front page of the Quilting site.
We had another addition to our Quilt Acronyms on the forum. It’s a beauty. Here’s the link, pop over to it and have a laugh. http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/695578/Quilt_Acronyms_can_you_add_to_#Post695578
