February Post

     Although I'm a little late with the post, this is the quilt I made in February. I had purchased the package of multi-colored fabrics some time ago and the Royal Squares pattern seemed to be the perfect pattern for them. I made the quilt using the "quilt-as-you-go" method. I also tried glue basting for the first time and it has the advantage of stabilizing the fabrics before they are sewn together, so they don't stretch. I used some of the extra blocks left over from the front for the back, which makes the quilt reversible.

Until next time Happy Quilting!

And Now For Something Completely Different...

     This is the year of our bi-annual sale for World Missions. The date has been set for November 5 and I'm already trying to make some smaller items, different from quilts, which, I hope will be popular items. This is one idea that I've come up with so far. It's called "Bear in a Bag" and here are some knitted bears happily settled into their bags, waiting for someone to carry them home and cuddle them.
