Hi Quilters!
In a few minutes I will be off to Fairbanks, through Saginaw, Detroit and Seattle.
When I leave Fairbanks in about a week, I will fly to Anchorage, Juneau, Sitka and then on to Ketchikan. This will be the first time I have taught in Alaska, but not the first time I have visited this awesome state.

Alaska is great this time of the year, but I don't think I would like the darkness and cold in the winter. Lots of quilts would have to be used.

Sew Easy Triangles are a printed grid on fusible paper, that enables the sewer to make precise half-square triangles, quarter-square triangles and reversible prairie points, with no trouble at all. Sandwich two fabrics right sides together and fuse a page of Sew Easy Triangle Paper in place with a hot, dry iron. No pinning is necessary. Stitch on the dotted sewing lines, no marking necessary, cut on the cutting lines, peel the paper and press open. There is no squaring up involved at all, your triangles are ready to go into your project in no time!

This Week on KayeWoodTV.com!

Since I messed up on last week's links, we're going to feature Elisa Wilson's Square Me Up Ruler again this week!

Eilsa's Square Me Up Ruler uses popular 10" and 5" squares of fabric to give you quick and accurate half-square triangles in 4 1/2 (4" finished size) and 2" (1 1/2" finished size). Watch her technique!

Then, check out Elisa's Square Me Up Ruler!

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

Always look at the block construction before you start. I recently made a quilt that could have been easier if I had looked at what was going on. Instead of working with half triangles, I could have made squares for the block. It would have eliminated a lot of the seams and made matching a breeze. And measuring twice is always a good idea.....Debbie

I'm just starting my first quilt and the best thing I've done so far is re-read the directions several times. I've already caught a few mistakes before they turned into big problems......Stephanie

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.
