Newsletter – 14 October 2016
Hello Quilting Friends,
Since my last Newsletter, life has been a whirlwind of activity.
Last weekend, I headed to my parents’ house to celebrate our Canadian Thanksgiving. While the time together flew by, we had an excellent visit. Milo hung out and played with his doggie cousins, for much of the visit, and enjoyed a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, courtesy of my Mom.
When I returned home, I sent out the first lesson of our A4AC 2016/17 Quilt-Along. Here are the blocks that we are completing for Lesson 1:
Did you know? You can join our A4AC 2016/17 Quilt-Along, at any time. If you join Today you will have immediate access to the Introduction and Lesson 1 files.
For my version of the A4AC 2016/17 Quilt-Along, I will be using an FQ bundle of Summerfest and yardage from the same collection.
Shown below, are my cut fabrics for the blocks released in Lesson 1:
What YOU Will Learn by Joining the A4AC Quilt-Along
- Two different methods for making half-square, quarter-square and split-quarter-square triangles, as well as square-in-a-square and flying geese units.
- The basics of English paper piecing and fusible appliquÃ©.
- How to quilt this large queen-sized design in various stages so that you can easily manage the quilting on your domestic machine. Of course, you do not have to do these steps if you prefer to quilt the large quilt or to send it out to a longarm quilter.
- How to avoid chopping off your triangle points when attaching sashing and joining blocks.
- Piecing blocks that are not the usual row/column layout.
- How to create more complex and advanced piecing techniques to complete the various blocks chosen.
To join the quilt-along, there is a one-time fee of $60 (USD). This fee covers all of the quilt-along lessons that will be released in PDF format and, at the end of the quilt-along, you’ll download the complete Skill Building Booklet with all lessons in one comprehensive file.
My good friend, Jacquelynne Steves, has released her newest product: “Everything” Patterns.
“Everything” Patterns’ designs can be used as embroidery patterns, colouring pages, or even as water-colour designs. How you choose to use these designs is completely up to you. Download the “Everything” Patterns today.
Wishing you a wonderful week,
