Rose Hughes demonstrates her technique on making a “rose”.





Trying to remember which of our e-Newsletters had that incredible pattern or tip but you can’t find it anymore?  Go to our main web page and click on “Archived e-Newsletters”.




In the right hand column, I’ve written short notes on each e-Newsletter… to help you find what you’re looking for.



Some of you might remember my love affair with the “Twister Ruler”?


Here’s a YouTube of Jenny at the Missouri Quilt Co., with “The Amazing Twister Ruler”:



Well, someone came out with an even BETTER Twister tool, in my opinion.  Unfortunately, I RAN out and bought the 3 different size Twister Rulers, already!  (insert loud groan, here)


This one is called the “June Tailor Twist N Stitch Ruler”:





I just finished this quilt top.  It was a real easy block that had an incredible look.


They call it “One Pinwheel Rail Fence”.  That’s the one that I did.


There’s also a “Double Pinwheel Rail Fence”, on that web page.




I used scrappy reds and whites and blacks.  Here’s how my quilt top looks:




Saw this on one of the Yahoo Groups that I follow.

Goodness!  I often wonder WHY I buy quilting magazines when, I can spend a bit of time on the internet and find TONS of free quilt patterns!   Actually, to justify buying a magazine, I’m sometimes call it “Eye Candy” and other times, “Research”. 




Here’s an excellent site, with different patterns:



One of my favorite web sites is still:

Marcia Hohn’s “Quilter’s Cache”.



My “Scrap Queen”, Bonnie Hunter ALSO has a LOT of free quilt patterns on her web site, Quiltville:



And, I believe she’s got pictures and explanations on all of her FREE quilt patterns, too!



April’s Basket BOM (Block Of the Month) is now on-line.





Well, I think I’ve shared enough for 1 month.  Hope you had an incredible Easter weekend with family and friends.
