Kankakee Quiltmakers Show This Weekend and Great Tip


Join me at the Kankakee Quiltmakers Fall Show this weekend at the Knights of Columbus, 187 S. Indiana Ave., in Kankakee, IL. They will have many lovely quilts on display and our very own, Norma Applegate, will have some beautiful quilts to admire.  For more information, check it out HERE.

I found this unique little card on pinterest and thought you might like to copy this.  There is alot of math in quilting and sometimes when you are figuring yardages, it is a little overwhelming!  I enjoy following a weekly email from one of my favorite teachers at quilt market.  She said there are times when it would be a better purchase to ADD an a few extra inches or more so that when you are finished with a project, you will have a few good inches to add to your stash.  Think about it, having 2" leftover is not very useful, but having 5" can give you lots of opportunities. You can cut (2) 2 1/2" strips or 5" X 5" squares.  Sounds good to me!
