My10 Quilty Secrets

10 quilty secrets
Amy , the blogger at 13 spools   did a post on 10 Quilt Secrets  and boy did it go over big .  A lot of bloggers followed her lead and posted their quilt secrets too. WELL confession is good for the soul and here are my 10 Quilty Secrets.
1.  I am proud to say that I only have about 12 UFO’s that I need to finish.
2 .  I have in the past had my used rotary cutter blades re- sharpened.
3 .  I really wanted this gadget, the Quilter’s FabriCalc  that I have yet to use.
4 . I am  getting better at switching out my sewing machine needles.
5 .  I love shopping for new fabric if it is for a special quilt project.
6 .  Sometimes I will use pretty sheets as backing for my quilts.
7.   I prefer not to work with small fabrics pieces.
8 .  I like the quality of Gutermann thread.
9.  The part that worries me the most about my quilting is the binding, I want it perfect.
10. Since I started taking better care of my sewing machine it sews better.

Summer will soon be a  memory and Fall is right around the corner. And I am hoping for a great time this weekend at the high school class reunion. 

Peace, love, and art.

Photo Book on my Quilts

my photo quilt book

I am excited  that  I finally decided on a title for the photo book on my quilts.

   My working title is:   
I  am self-publishing  using the internet website  I am enjoying working with this self publishing platform.  Check it out and let me know what you think?
This will be a photo book and include   personal antidotes, quotes, etc.    I would love any suggestions or comments that you can think of that I might consider.

   I drive by this sign often , today I parked along the curb, snapped picture and said a prayer for peace on earth.


Peace, love, and art,
