I need some help...... and I am sure this it the place to ask.....if you were going to subscribe to a quilting Magazine, which one would it be?My Threads and Sew News have now expired and I really want to subscribe to a couple Quilting mags, but there are so many out "there" that it is definitely hard to pick only one or two.So please give me some imput......If I decide to pick the one you suggest, then the first person that suggested it will get a gifty in the mail. I probably will get two, so that means two winners. I must close the contest by Feb. 15th. cause we will be leaving here at the first of March, so I need some time to get the packages in the mail.
I went to the LQS today and signed up for a Quilt-as-you-go class. Looks easy enough, now lets see if I am smart enough to get it done....I didn't buy any of the fabrics, cause I was going to get them from my stash, but......I have only 2 (yes 2) fat quarters of black/white print. I am going to make it Black, white and red. I DO have plenty of red, and I also have the book that is required, so, guess I will go shopping tomorrow. I have lots of preparation work to complete before class,and the class is this coming Thursday evening.Wish me luck...LOL...
I have been trying to learn paper piecing, have had several people to show me the technique over the years, but just couldn't get the hang of it, so yesterday, I found some patterns and decided I needed to try my new machine, so started sewing. I am pleasantly surprised, I didn't mess up but one pattern. Had to throw it away ( another story), but finally got 3 blocks together. Now, I wish I had chosen the fabrics more wisely, as they turned out just like they were supposed to, but the color choices are lousy. Lesson Learned... I seem to learn all my lessons the hard way...(:
Hope all of you are warm and cozy this evening and maybe snuggled down, quilting memories or reading a good book, or maybe a "magazine'
