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

Several years ago somewhere I read a tip for sewing onto a piece of fabric when getting to the end of your seam to prevent the bird nests. Instead of using the same scrap over and over, use two pieces of fabric that you can use in a scrap quilt. I usually use 2 1/2" strip for binding, so I have a lot of those, which make wonderful half square triangles for a Friendship Star block. Two for one, quilt blocks, and no jamming....Eileen

When piecing a four-patch, after the four patches are sewn together undo the first two stitches on the first two-patches and second-two patches in the center of the block that have been sewn together. Press your seams in a pinwheel pattern and a small four-patch will form in the center of the block where you removed the stitches. This makes it much neater when pressing and for quilting....Sandra

Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative....

From August 1-10 the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative (AAQI) will be offering 20 quilts that were part of the "Alzheimer's: Forgetting Piece by Piece" exhibit in an online auction. All profits fund Alzheimer's research.

Quilts made by Sue Nickels, Diane Gaudynski, Marsha McCloskey, Nancy Brenan Daniel, Melody Crust, Elsie Campbell, Debbie Bowles and others will be auctioned. This is a rare opportunity to acquire quilts by nationally acclaimed quilters who rarely sell their work. Own a quilt from the exhibit that has touched the hearts of hundreds of thousands of people. 

Preview the quilts: http://www.alzquilts.org/quiltauction.html

The Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative is an all-volunteer national charity whose mission is to raise awareness and fund research through art. Ami Simms is the founder and executive director. Her mother had Alzheimer's.

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.
