19 Jul Sizzlin’ Summer Snippets
July is steamy here on Long Island & it is the perfect time for reflection & stitching. when it is too hot hot to be enjoying the outdoors, quilting and designing is the perfect option! I recently took an insightful class on EQ8 through my guild. This program has always been so confusing, in it’s previous versions-finally, it is user friendly! Mario Mulea, president of the LIMQG, was a patient and thorough teacher…we all finally get it! You can design endless numbers of quilts using a single block! Play with this great program online @ electricquilt.com .
While you are sipping some frosty ice tea , do visit my friend Sue Pelland @ suepellandsdesigns.com . I’m sure you are familiar with her amazing ‘Leaves Galore’ rulers, patterns and books-my favorites! Her recent tips about using MistyFuse to keep your batting in place is brilliant! Read her blog for more tips and patterns. Check in with me for her rulers & samples of MistyFuse.
Today I am continuing on my inventory quest! I am halfway there & more Kaffe is arriving today! We have new widebacks by Valori Wells, Tula , Kaffe & Tim Holtz. My FreeSpirit Christmas bundles are still available & I’m throwing in the Wonton pattern by Jaybird Quilts, while supplies last!
