Hi Quilters!

Today at the Cabin : Yes! We got our snow. Just love it!

And now, we have enough warm and wet to make the joints uncomfortable. But, it's still cold enough to keep the woodstove going! YAY

Last year we featured a man (Simon Beck) who walks all day in the snow to create gorgeous quilt designs. Those pictures are featured within this newsletter. Hope you enjoy them!

DVD of the Week....

Pond Lilies, using Kaye's View & Do Circles Template

Many different scrap fabrics were used in this quilt made from circles.

Mix and match colors as three circles are layered on each background square creating the unique rippled 3-D look.

Kaye Wood has created a technique for this design which eliminates curved piecing, so it is now easy enough for beginners.

Uses the View & Do Circle (sold separately).

Q: I'm making a quilt for my daughter-in-law. She's not very fabric/quilt literate, so I'm looking for instructions for quilt care, to give to her at the same time when I present her quilt. Me thinks, she would be more interested if they came from someone who is considered a professional in the field. Where can I find instructions to print off to include with the gift?? Thanks for any help you can give me.

A: I found a wonderful web site for you to get this info. Click the link and go to "our loft". Scroll down and they have a caring for your quilt section to click on. It has all the information you need.

Kaye's on YouTube....

140 (ish) shows. Check them all out... HERE

Shown here is the Bargello Color Wheel.

Sew simple strip sets, cut wedges, and sew a circle. You get TWO circles with the same strip set! It's so much fun to experiment with color!

The wedge tool makes 27" circles. You also have the option of sewing the two circles together for a unique figure eight hanging.

The many design and layout options plus an acrylic wedge makes the a real bargain. Pattern and 15 degree wedge tool.

Q: I was wondering how when you measure for your borders, you can get them to be exactly the correct length. I am making the top and bottom borders after the side ones. The top and bottom borders have squares at the corners. They have come out either too long or too short. Do I put the last square on after I sew the border strip on?

A: Complete instructions for doing this are in Kaye's book, Everyone Can Quilt. The border strips have to be measured the exact length or width of the quilt, at the center. Cut the side border strips the exact length of the quilt. Fold the border strips in half and mark the half with a pin. Then fold the strip in half again and pin at these quarter points. The quilt needs to be fitted to the border, by matching the center and quarter points of the border strip to the center and quarter points of the quilt. Sew with the border strip on top; the quilt underneath. Cut the top and bottom border strips the exact width of the quilt. Sew the corner squares to each end of these border strips. Fold and pin these border strips. Match the center, quarter and the seam lines of the border strips to the quilt. Sew with border strips on top.
