The beginning of a fresh “New” year. Doesn’t that sound inspiring?!?!?
Even though Christmas is over, I don’t mind having SnowMen and SnowWomen in my home till the end of January.
Their coldness brings warmth to my heart. J
Here’s a snowmen pattern to make pillow coverings, a small table centrepiece,
a lap quilt or simply finishing off the 4 corners on a king sized quilt.
Recently, one of our quilty friends brought in her McCall’s Quick Quilt magazine – Aug/Sep 2013 issue.
Gilbert had quilted her quilt and she had submitted a picture of her quilt and they put it in their issue!
How cool is that, eh? We were ESTATIC to see this!!!
If any of your quilts appear in a magazine…. Please share! We like to be tickled pink, too! J
Here’s a lovely quilt pattern that can be done in scrappy colors or, with a myriad of “controlled” colors… you decide.
Personally, I’d love to see it in whites, reds and some black.
Do you love paperpiecing, like MOI?
Here’s a jaw dropping quilt block, paper pieced pattern - The New York Beauty Block!!!
Jenny Doan, from Missouri Quilt Company, shows us how to make a Dresden Flower Wall Hanging….
Lots of cool tricks that can be used on other quilty projects:
Just finished the center of your quilt and you’d like to try a different border?
How about one of these? No, I don’t have measurements… sorry.
I’ve created the Marco Polo Quilt Guild “Calendar of Events” for 2015.
Not much on there, yet, but stay tuned as a I hear about quilts shows and
other quilty stuff:
I’ve updated our web page for our “Archived” Newsletters. Enjoy!
That’s about it, for now….
Gilbert and I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year!
Rosa and Gilbert
