Reader Daphne writes a great blog, Fun Factual Weird Breathtaking.
Edgestitch talks about the mass market and inspirational messages. I really enjoyed this post!
An article discusses a math professor who developed a new way of piecing called ‘tube piecing’.
The ladies from Sew Kind of Wonderful went on a quilting cruise. They have some tips on what to bring to add to your comfort.
Projects, Patterns & Tutorials
After finishing Flying Around and taking it to be quilted, I am thinking of my next project. By a circuitous route I ended up on the Jen Kingwell site and saw her State Fair pattern made in dots. I know from my experience with Ring Toss that having templates would be better, but I don’t want to buy the templates. What I want is for my Jen Carlton Bailly templates to work for this pattern. Or the Quick Curve Ruler? Could I use that? Testing is required. I just want to make something fast. I don’t want to test (she says now).
You’ll be late to the party, but you can still play along with Christa Watson’s Infrastructure QAL.
Inspiration and Ideas
Miss Lottie is back from her travels in North America and blogging again. She posted about sketching on her iPad. I heard about a new iPad app at work and have been thinking about using tablets more effectively in my work, so this is a timely post.
