This weekend I will be mostly…March 23, 2017 / byKerry / Categories : Feeds
This quilt needs finishing in the next 5 days and getting in the post with the Thumbtacks quilt for magazine deadlines. Every weekday I do a little bit more, so maybe it will be a flimsy by the weekend and I can quilt it. I’m thinking of calling it “Connecting Four” – it’s four rows of four squares, with four corner triangles added, plus the secondary pattern makes 4×4 on point squares. It won’t be that big- about 55″ square.
Sunday sees me over at Addie’s in Cochrane. They’re technically closed on a Sunday, but “Carol’s Gang” (which costs $30) is a lock-in without alcohol but with fabric and sewing supplies! I’m not a big fan of lugging a machine around, and my little machine is no fun to sew on when I’ve been using my big metal one heavily because it feels crappy in comparison. I need to get myself some wheeled luggage so I can use the good machine. Anyway, my plan is to start glue piecing this horse, which will be my entry for Festival of Quilts… Before I do that though I need to decide shades and fabrics and make the freezer paper templates. I’m thinking of crazy piecing the larger areas for the first time, just because they’re so big. I’m hoping that won’t look really stupid.
I also have a request. I’m looking for an 11″ square of each of these fabrics. I’ve found them for sale in the US but I refuse to pay $25 for a FQ to be posted here, that’s just ridiclous and prices me right out! If anyone can help though I can pay or trade or whatever. Thank you!

For me, old techie that I am, the disconnect between needlepoint and information has always been a baffling one. In the tech world of my previous working life there was a saying: Information wants to be free. Now you can put many different interpretations on that, but one thing is true: information wants to be […]read more
The title says it all really. La Maison Victor magazine has just released its virgin version in English! This is exciting news and I can imagine not a small task to create an entirely english version of an already established sewing magazine. But they did and we are luckier for it! Just last year, I […]read more
