Pour l’Amour du fil – for the love of thread

Currently running is the Nantes, France Pour l’amour du fil show. If you love the magazine Quiltmania and want to see stitching and quilting ranging from inspirations of Afghanistan to pink bras, hop on a plane and take a lot of pictures or follow the blog of Kathy Doughty from Material Obsession on her journey there. With a stop at Kaffe’s place. If only…..
not to be missed tomorrow she will post pictures of the show.

Have been Fishing up work on a twister/pinwheel quilt, wish I had read Elaine’s blog before I started. I knew there was a better way to cut the fabrics with less waste. Luckily I know a lady working on a 1″ unfinished postage quilt. She needs about 65,000 pieces so these should help her out. The quilt finishes at 10″ square, was originally made with a jelly roll that I already had so not to worried about the fabric cost. If you are going to try it remember that the ruler always need to be the same way up. I learned the hard way. mis-cutting two squares.
And the hit of the Circle/Twilter party a little fabric tray from the dollar store. just the right size to hold a ton of junk as you move about the house with your stitching. Much envy. I suppose I’ll need to keep my eyes open and look for more.
Just rec’d a fantastic pattern for a future tinners project but cannot show you as it’s a surprise. And just finished two blocks for other tinners ladies, again sorry no pics. Don’t worry I’ll save them all and post at the end of the year.
