ADDQ - Attention Deficient Disorder for Quilters

I took some time to make myself a summer dress using an old favorite pattern. I need some more new clothes and I HATE to shop. While looking for something I came across 6 leftover squares and decided to make bear claw blocks with them. I have had some Thangle papers for some time so I used them to make HSTs. They are convenient because these use 2 ½” strips to make 2” finished HSTs. With the light fabric next to the paper, they easily press toward the dark and finish. I forgot that each…

Great use of 1 inch squares.  I want to do this with my scaps!

Farmpark Quilts 2012 Show Preview

So without further ado, here's a small preview of the quilts hanging at the show this year: This quilt was made by my friend Janet. She wanted to try some fabric painting, and combined with her quilting, this is just stunning in person. My other friend Leslie made this quilt. Typically Leslie makes HUGE California King quilts, but this one is a bit toned down from her entries in years past, but I still love it and would take it off her hands if she would let me! :) I have to start with…

Stephanie made this very pretty quilt. After it was finished she found she had enough fabric left over to make the pillow sham shown on the front cover of this newsletter. I do believe that once you have made one of these quilts, you will want to make several. Optional Thread Sets: Cotton Threads x 2 - 100 m spools in matching colours for $7.00/set. Polyester Threads x 2 - 150 m spools in matching colours for $9.60/set. Please specify in Special Instructions on your order if you wish to have…
