Hi Quilters!

Today at the Cabin : More snow. Are you getting tired of hearing that yet? I love the snow, but around the end of Feb, middle of March, I'm ready for spring. Ready to put my hands in the dirt and plant stuff, and yes, ready to ride my motorcycle! But with 2 foot of snow on the ground, and more falling as I type this, it might be awhile.....

Sisters Common Threads is our featured designer this week.

T-Shirt Quilts

I was wondering if you have a pattern for making a quilt out of t-shirts? My friends son passed away and he had lots of tie-dyed t-shirts. We thought it would be nice to make them into a quilt. We have seen it done, but don't know where to start. Thank you in advance of any help or patterns. Ginny a faithful reader.

Iron on interfacing is the way I'd do it. Use it on the back part of the shirt you wish to use. Then you can cut it into squares, circles, wedges or whatever shapes you need for the particular design you're using.

Keep Your Cutting Board From Warping

If space is limited and you do not want to always bend over and get the board out from under the bed, make your own portfolio, for storing and carrying her broad to classes.

Go to your friendly appliance store and get a box that will fit the board. Cut two sides, or cut a size that can include the fold of the box. Cover it with a thin fleece or flannel....place the mat inside and use some extra stripes that you may have had from an earlier project. This way you can stand it up behind a cabinet, bed head board, or in the closet until the next time you need it. I have done this for years and it's cheap and efficient, so that I have more money for other items.

Show and Tell....

Kites made from quilting patterns.......Cliff and Geri

Send in your creations. Include a picture or two and a short story about your quilt/tablerunner or wallhanging (or other) and we'll put it on our Show and Tell Page!

Send to terrye@kayewood.com

Dresden Plate

I have a desire to make a Dresden Plate quilt using 14 petals, but can not find a pattern. Is it possible to create a pattern or should I scrap this idea? Beverly

K: It is possible, but we don't have a template to do that. Here is a formula that you may be able to create one with. 360 (degrees) divided by 14 (number of petals) would be the formula to find the angle. Good luck!

List Your Event....

All across the land, Quilt Guilds and Groups are gearing up for their shows. Get yours listed!

Looking for a Quilt Show to attend? Check out our listing. If you have an upcoming event or show you'd like to post on our events page, just click the link!

Comment about Batting....

I don't have a question, but a comment on what people used for batting. I have a quilt that has sugar sacks for batting and I know one person who, in this day and age, collected milkweed to stuff a pillow with.
