Quilting Gallery Newsletter – 21 June 2012

Welcome to the latest edition of the Quilting Gallery Newsletter filled with lots of quilty FUN!

Beginner’s Quilt-Along

Block 3 of our Beginner’s Quilt-Along is now available. Pat Sloan named this blocked Time for Ice Cream, aka Shoo Fly. It’s our first of several half square triangle blocks that we’ll be making. I’ve shared an easy (and the most common) method for making HSTs too. View the Block 3 tutorial here.


P.S. Missing out on the fun? You can join the quilt-along at any time. The blocks are easy, and you’ll catch up quickly. Check the Flickr group to see the blocks others have made. We have weekly prizes too!

Weekly Themed Quilt Contest


The theme for this week’s quilt contest is Embroidery/Stitchery. You can submit quilts, wall hangings, pillows, etc. as long as the item you enter is completely finished (i.e. bound and quilted). You have until 8:00 a.m. (EDT) on Friday to enter. Contest voting will start shortly after and last until next Monday at 8:00 a.m. (EDT).

Enter your quilt here!

Valerie from Pastimes Online is giving away this lovely embroidery kit for this week’s winner:
