The inner suns are definitely harder to sew on than the outer background and there are a few puckers in my seams. The great thing about blogging is that you share your work with others and then you get helpful tips in return. Helen suggested that I try the Curve Master sewing foot in piecing my New York Beauty blocks. I looked it up online and watched a couple youtube videos on it. Can it really be as easy as the videos show??? Thanks for the tip, Helen, and for taking the time to send me a letter.
Last week I got this in the mail
http://www.ctpubblog.com/. It is Monique Dillard's second book. I already have her first book and had planned to buy this one, too. If you haven't ever been to this blog, you need to make it a regular stop. They have more give-a-ways than any other blog. Today they are giving away a Sulky metallic starter set in a slimline case. Any one of us could use that! Thelma of http://cupcakesndaisies.blogspot.ca/ was asked to participate in a book tour of Traditional Fat Quarter Quilts and made a quilt called Pyramid. It is gorgeous! Look it up on her blog when you get the chance.
One final note...Crocus Quilters of Weyburn is hosting a quilt show this weekend at the Curling rink in Weyburn. The show starts on Friday at 4:00 with a Trunk Show following at 8:30. It continues on Saturday from 10:00 through 4:00.
