An update on the Propeller block - well some interesting reading anyway about it being considered an antique block. Shows a couple of ways you could make this block up into a quilt. Would look fantastic done in modern fabrics.

I really love the way Joan is using up her selvages...I have been collecting selvages for some time now and saving it for "just the right" project....not knowing what that was going to be....but now I think this could be it.....I really love how effective this looks. Joan has gotten her ideas from Instructions for the Red Zinger but has added her measurements which helps greatly.

Faux Piped Binding

TLC Stitches shares her way of making faux piped binding.

I also noticed Trisha has a very different way to make nine patch blocks using squares not strips .....seriously need to give this method a whirl.
