How many of you have a jar at home for "Loose change"
I do and I am always amazed at how quickly it fills up.

Well the same holds true of fabric....
All quilt makers know that after every project you are left
with precious bits of fabric any self respecting
fabric can't part with.

This book gives you a way to organize your scraps into
"Loose Change"

Nickels = 5" squares
Dimes = 10" squares
Quarters = Fat Quarter (18"x22") or Long Quarter (9"x45")

By cutting and organizing in advance, you will be amazed
at how the scraps pile up into amounts you can then use
to create many wonderful projects for practically free. 
I think you will like the idea!

Moda.....Civil War Reunion
Barbara Brackman hits another
home run with this beautiful

Shabby Chic Fleur Tutorial

We decided to do something fun! 

We have a tutorial for you to make this super cute accent flower!
                                                                Use it for an embellishment on    sweaters, tee shirts,
skirts, headbands, purses &
anything else you think might
need a little pick-me-up!

They take very little fabric &
can be made super scrappy or
A great way to use up
some of your odd scraps.

I used the fun I-Top covered button maker, but you could use any  decorative accent button in the center.

Above all.......Have fun!

(While I am sure someone super crafty has already
thought about making something like this.... (We would never
assume that we are 100% original).  We have spent time to
put together our own tutorial.  Please do not copy it.
Do however feel free to mention it and provide a link
to it for your friends on the web.  Thanks)

Monday Book Club

I have read many books on color....
that fickle element that can make or
break each and every quilt.

I especially loved this book, because the author suggests that you form a "Color Club". 

We all have sewing and quilting clubs but directions and suggestions on how to form your own color club are laid out in the beginning of this book.

Then you use the book as a "Work Book" you will begin the journey to new color discovery. 

Everything is explained, photographed, and
a lesson given so you can come to understand
& use color in more effective ways in your quilting and the world around you.

I really LOVED this book!
