Mom-ehmian Rhapsody – This is the real life :)

So I don’t know if you’ve seen this, but I loved it!! I could totally see me and my sisters doing this … I seriously laughed so hard watching this!! This is my life 😀

Awesome (and Free) Falls Quilt Pattern

So our forum member (and local hero) farmgirl2 came up with this great way to use a Kona Solids Jelly Roll.  Take a look at this …

Kona Solids Quilt

Seriously, with one Jelly Roll and one Charm Pack from Robert Kaufman you can pull this off!  (You don’t have much left, so cut carefully).  But play around with it, see what you can do to make it better, and let us know what you think!!

This came out soooo nice, I am so excited about it!  Happy Quilting!

The Canyon Quilter

So I found an awesome video done by Megan Leigh Sweeney about Colorado’s “Canyon Quilters”  I don’t really have anything amazing to say, but I watched this and was just kept having cool ideas of things to do with our local ladies, and even our forum gals.  The laughs and fun topics and service documented in the video all reminded me of why I fell in love with quilting in the beginning.  It’s not the fabric or the hours spent picking out stitches, it’s you all, the late nights, the inside jokes, you are the reason I love this business.  It’s funny too, as you watch this I promise you’ll be reminded of some friend you’ve made along the way.  I’d love to hear what you were reminded of while watching this, so take a minute to send a note to someone who has made you’re quilting ‘career’ better or more fun.  PASS IT ON!!

I just recently came across this cool story from the Wall Street Journal.  It talks about how many truck drivers these days are finding themselves having more and more down time, and are turning to hobbies like quilting and knitting.

It is such a great story (watch the video also)

DO you know very many male quilters?  (or are you one?) I actually know a few.  They are awesome and extremely talented.  I think really having (mathematical brains-  mine is not) helps them out a ton.  🙂  Angles and 3/8ths inches don’t scare them like they do me!  🙂
