Hi Quilters!

Today at the Cabin : Woke up to snow again. Yeah, I'm totally over it. I want to get my hands in the dirt. I want to walk barefoot through the mud after a rain and pick up worms for fishing. I want to sit out on my back deck in a tank top and shorts and soak up the long awaited sun. It's coming, I know, it will be here soon.


This week's sale is a bit different. They're not on the sale page, but here goes.

Almost all of Joan Shay of Petal Play's patterns use templates, so this week, whenever you order a Petal Play Pattern, you get the template(s) FR**!! Most take only one template, so that one is free, but the ones that use 2 or more templates? Yup, they're free too! Buy a pattern, get the template(s) FR**!

Go HERE for all of Joan's patterns and templates.

Lots of cool new stuff on our Check It Out Pages too!

Q and A From Kaye....

Q: What kind of pen do you use to autograph a quilt?

K: I always use a pigma pen, available in most arts and crafts stores.

A pigma pen features waterproof, quick drying pigmented inks, that will not bleed through the thinnest of papers, or fabrics. Once the ink dries, it is smear proof, permanent and fade resistant even under sun light or UV light. Plus the tips do not dry out like most technical pens. When I went online and put "pigma pen", in the search engine, a number of places to purchase them came up. One retail store was Target, some quilt shops and a lot of arts and crafts places. You might want to consider ordering them online if you cannot find a local merchant that carries them.

Q: Any suggestions on what to do with very old, hand sewn quilted blocks?

K: Make sure you show them off! Either mount them in a frame or put them in between two layers of glass and display them on a stand.

Q: How do you piece batting together to make a long strip? Do you zigzag it together flat or use a seam?

K: I think you should overlap and then zig zag. You could butt them together but the zig zag stitch may not catch both edges. It is best to overlap.

Show and Tell....

I have been a "wannabe" quilter for about 35 years and finally completed my first quilt for my 82 year old Mom. I have done lots of hand quilting, mostly around panels, but had never cut, sewed, sandwiched and completed a quilt from scratch. I started this in January for Mother's Day, thinking I had plenty of time. We own a resort on Kentucky Lake and I just couldn't get all the piecing, applique and quilting done in time. I finished it in August and named it "Expression of Love". It is totally machine pieced and quilted. I used a couple of decorative stitches and my embroidery machine to do the label. I even used my budding free-hand quilting skills from a class I took in July. Mom loved her quilt and I am so glad to give it to her, knowing she will cherish it as much as I do her! I will be doing lots more quilting eventually. This is a picture of my Mom and me on the day I gave her the quilt. It is a 50" by 50" lap quilt for her blue and yellow lake room.
