Please email me your postal address, and I can get your Festival Of Quilts tickets off to you!
Hope you enjoy the show!
For those of you who may not know, this is the most amazing quilt show held at the NEC in Birmingham, UK. This year the show is from 6th to 9th August 2015. sildenafil de genfar 50 mg
If you are thinking of going but don’t have a ticket yet, then this might be the incentive you need (apart from all of the quilts and superb shopping)!
All you need to do is comment on the blog telling me what inspires you to quilt. The draw will be a random selection, but it is always fun to hear what people love about quilting and patchwork!
Lately I was inspired to make this little quilt from my book “Little Quilts and Gifts from Jelly Roll Scraps” (Search Press 2015) into a full size quilt. Some of you may have seen that on the Instagram feed a while back. Once I get to grip with the tech end of things here, like where are the pictures I just transferred to the computer??? then I can show you here! sales viagra
In the meantime, comment to enter and I will be drawing Sunday 28th June. old do have get viagra

Something of an understatement I know.
I have been on Instagram, so I know some of you have kept up with me there. Check it out if you haven’t already, it is fun. Just press the button and it will take you there. cialis coupon
So given I have not been here in a while, things seem to have changed. So, in the spirit of experimentation, here are some pictures of a recent WIP. Gives you an idea of the trials of outdoor photography to try and get the best light, but not wanting a breeze!
There will be more frequent posts once more, I promise. Look out for one soon where I have some free tickets for the Festival of Quilts coming up in August! Yeah!!!
Well, before this post never happens, here are some shots of some great quilts being created in the Jelly Roll Star class in Houston at Quilt Festival. It was so great to meet old friends from classes last year and meet so many new ones this year too!
I had a great time, exhausting but so much fun!
This was my classroom set up:
Although we could use design walls, sometimes the floor was easier:
A top to go home for quilting!
The class is based on a quilt from my book ‘Jelly Quilts and Gifts’ from Search Press.
Will try to put up more posts from Market and Festival before it’s too late!
I was in Lewes at the weekend and could not resist a visit to my favourite shop, Patchwork Dog and Basket.
Needless to say they had a lovely selection of fabrics, some of which came home with me:
If you want to learn to make quilts that are portable to quilt and manageable to baste together in small sections, this is the class for you. I always find new ideas for the quilts and the block below is my current portable project to quilt. There will be lots of quilts to see to inspire you, to sew the quilt you want. The stars in the block here will have more stars appearing when the blocks go together:
You can see how I am getting on with it if you come to the class!!!
There was also this fun version of my Doggy Quilt on display in the shop:
I think Jill made this one. I made mine having been inspired by the stuffed dogs she has in the shop that you can buy kits for. The quilt pattern is available there too.
Where will you be taking your quilting?
I was lucky enough to have some samples of the lovely ‘Fly Away’ collection from Dashwood Studios arrive last week. Just in time to make some little quilts to be photographed for a book that will coming out next spring, I think.
Such nice fabrics, ask for them in your local quilt shops. I am sure you will want to stitch some little quilts too, or even something a lot bigger!
They arrived along with some of the voile fabric that I ordered, more on that next time!
I have seen these finger pincushions for an age now. And I thought, that looks useful, I wonder if it really is? But not buying one and for some reason thinking that the 15min it would take to stitch one was not 15minutes that I had, I never got round to it. average cost of viagra per pill
But I kept thinking about them, so the other day I bit the bullet and got down to it.
And REALLY, why have I not made one before?
It was so quick, and it is now soooo useful, I thought I would share with any of you who have never seen one, let alone made one, how to stitch one.
Take a 4 1/2in square of fabric:
Fold in half diagonally RS together. Stitch along the aligned raw edges using 1/4in seam allowance. (Sorry I forgot to use a contrasting thread for photography purposes!) On the second side leave a gap in the middle of about 1in:
Snip the excess fabric from the corners :
Turn RS out and poke out the corners:
Stuff with polyester toy stuffing or similar: buy viagra generic
Pull the two corners on the long side of the triangle around to meet, and holding them securely, over lap and stitch together:
And that is it, all finished:
I use it on my left hand index finger, as I am right handed, but really you just pop it on whichever finger you feel comfortable with:
So if you have few minutes to spare today, you can make one of these and then transform your stitching life!
