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.
Linking up with Linky Tuesday and 13 Spools
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.

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 http://www.mixbook.com. 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,
