Our Reader's Show and Tell....

I've been trying to make this "Quarter Quilt" (Brick Path) using one of Kaye Wood's patterns for quite a while now. I was sure that I could whip it up in a weekend - and if I hadn't been interrupted a kazillion times, I might have done it. But, I put the last stitches in the binding tonight, and voila! a new Quarter Quilt for the spare room.

It even matches the comforter quite nicely! Of course, the comforter will be coming off when the nice weather finally makes it’s way to us.

The last QQ I made was flowery and I used a rose-red fabric - and seeing as the spare room is most often used by my son, I thought it needed something a little more manly.

I loved how this pattern went together too - there's a "twist" in the instructions, and I thought that was the most fun part - but you'll have to order the pattern to find out what the twist is! The first pic is a close-up of the fabrics and the pattern; the 2nd is a pic of it on the bed.

Reader's Hints, Tips and Techniques....

Whenever I make a quilt or project, I will be taking a picture of it before I send it off to the long arm quilter. Ask me how I learned this trick. Just recently finished a king size colorwash trip around the world, sent it to the quilter and put the binding and label on it when it returned. So excited to bring it to it's new owner. It was beautiful all in oriental fabrics. Had my husband and a friend hold it over my loft so I could take a picture of it. Packed it up and then decided I'd print out the picture. That's when I discovered that 10 squares were out of position. This quilt had 3127 - 1.5" squares and those 10 stood out like a sore thumb. The worst part was that I'd shown it to at least a dozen people before and after the quilting and no one saw the bad strip. It was only from the picture that I discovered the problem. Hard lesson learned the hard way....Jeannette

Kaye On TV....

We get a lot of phone calls and emails asking where to find Kaye on their TV. The simple answer is we don't know, (sorry). Here's what to do. Call your PBS, cable and satellite providers and ask them. If they don't show it, ask them to add it to their lineup. Our shows are called Kaye's Quilting Friends and Quilting The Kaye Wood Way.

We Want To Know....

Wikipedia says a thimble is a small hard pitted cup worn for protection on the finger that pushes the needle in sewing and quilting.

We want to know... what kind of a thimble do you use?

I've Learned....

...credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.
...your life can be changed in a matter of hours, by people who don't even know you.
...the clothes I like best are the ones with the most holes in them.
...it's not what you have in your life, but who you have in your life that counts.
...two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.
...it takes years to build up trust and only seconds to destroy it.
...you can do something in an instant that will give you a heartache for life.
...even when you think you have no more to give, when a friends cries out to you, you will find the strength to help.

I think that's all for this week. Have a great week. Hope to see you in Alaska in August!
