Patterns and Blocks
Camille Roskelly posted about Market and included some info about a new Scraps Inc book. She contributed a quilt, parts of which look like inside out Flying Geese.
Starting in January, you can help raise money for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital and get a quilt pattern. Read about it on Camille Roskelley’s blog.
EQ held a BlockBase Sew-along back in 2012. In writing a review for you, I found it and thought I would share. I would probably get overly ambitious and do something like make all the blocks in a smaller size a la Dear Jane, but this Sew-along is a good start.
Exhibits and Such
BAMQG members have quilts inspired by Amish quilts at the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles. There is a recent, interesting article in the San Jose Mercury News, which a friend from Chicago sent me!
Primal Green 2 is on at the San Francisco Public Library. This is the main branch and the exhibit is on the 5th floor. I have three quilts, Beach Town, Flower Garden and the Whole Cloth Quilt in the show.
This is such a tough time of year to write a blog. I sometimes wonder why I do it and I realized that I wonder that more during this time of year than other times. I get myself back in a right place in my head and remind myself that I do this writing for myself and my blog has become a great resource for myself! I know you are busy, but take a moment to comment on the blog. I get a lot out of your comments and am glad you are reading.
Tools, Supplies and Fabric
I found out from Alyssa Lichner that she has updatedthe Kona® Cotton to Aurifil Thread Conversion Chart and you can find it by going to her site.
The Electric Quilt Company will soon have online classes. Keep checking their website for start dates and titles of classes.
