HAVE YOU MADE AN ALL TWILLED QUILT?

Judi A. took this picture recently while at the Attic Window Quilt Shop and sent it to me.  She said that Fran West (right) made this all twilled quilt.  Isn't it lovely!  Great job Fran!  And thank you Judi for sending the picture.  If you are interested in learning  more about twilling you can check the sidebar for upcoming classes.

These are just a few of the fun events at the Quilt Shop.  Check the calendar on the sidebar daily for new class additions.

ANOTHER NOTE:
  • Did you go check out the Row By Row Shop Hop website?  This is a must for anyone traveling this summer.  You won’t want to miss it. 
  •  Quilts And Other Good Things has a tutorial for half square triangles using the bias strip method.  You gotta see this!
Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

Thank you, Caroll! I appreciate you mentioning my tutorial. I LOVE half square triangles and use about 5 different methods, but the bias strip method is a favorite for making a ton of them quickly and, more importantly, accurately!
