2010 Calender

I have seen this saying and love it...what a great calender and you can download it over at Living Locurto.

Connecting Quilt As You Go Blocks

I must admit to be slack when it comes to the quilting stage. I get the top done and then I stop. I don't have a big long arm machine and find it so hard to quilt on my domestic machine. I know people do it....but I only seem to be able to stitch in the ditch. Anyway...I just came across this tutorial explaining how to join your quilted blocks together which made it seem so easy. Take a look at what Leah Day has to say about joining them.
