      Hi Quilters!

      Today at the Cabin:

      Maple Syrup!

      It's getting to be that time. Normally by this time of the year all of the trees would already be tapped and be dripping, but not this year. Mother Nature and her "Winter Fix" aren't done with us yet.

      We have a HUGE Sugar Maple (doesn't have to be a sugar maple to get syrup) just outside our front door and although I have helped others do "the maple syrup thing", I've never done it myself. But this year, I'm going to dip my big fat toe in. Probably only tap it in 2 or 3 spots, but why not? Besides, if you've ever tasted REAL Maple Syrup, you'll never go back to that store bought garbage, but buying the real stuff is pretty spendy. We have a factory just outside, might as well utilize it!

      Quilty Sayings....

      Love is the thread that binds us.
      May your sorrows be patched and your joys be quilted.
      May your bobbin always be full.
      Memories are stitched with love.
      Old quilters never die...they just go to pieces.
      Seamstresses never go crazy, they just stay on pins and needles.
      One quilting project, like one cookie, is never enough!

      Quilting Tip....

      Warped Cutting Mats. You've heard the tips about laying them on the dryer, putting them out in the sun to flatten out.... just make sure that after you've gotten it straightened out, you check the lines. Sometimes in the "warping and restoring" process, the measurements go astray.

      When your rotary cutter blade is getting dull, fold up aluminum foil till you have quite a few layers. Then, just cut through the foil several times and it will sharpen your blade!

      When I'm threading a needle, I wet the eye of the needle, not the thread. If you do this, your thread will easily go through.

      Reader's Show and Tell....


      I did this quilt using the Kaye WoodsView & Do Diamond Shape. I thought it turned out really well. It was in the EMQS here in Eureka Montana and sold to to woman from Wisconsin.


      Send in your creations. Include a picture or two and a short story about your quilt/tablerunner or wallhanging (or other) and we'll put it on our Show and Tell Page!

      Storing Your Quilts....

      by Pamela of About.com/ Antiques


      1. The best way to store an antique quilt is by spreading it on an unused bed and placing an everyday coverlet over it. Quilts can also be layered on a bed. This storage method keeps quilts safe from dust and light, while reducing stress on the vintage fibers that can result from folding.
      2. If you do need to fold a quilt, spread it face down between two well-worn white cotton sheets and fold in a pleated accordion fashion. While storing flat is best, folding in this manner helps to reduce stress on old fabrics and reduce the likelihood of tearing.
      3. Limited space may dictate storing a quilt under a bed safely sealed in a Rubbermaid-type container. Just be sure to fold the quilt in the accordion manner recommended above and making sure it is completely void of moisture before placing it in the container.
      4. If you are going to store a quilt by displaying it on a wall, a good method is sewing a four-inch wide tube or sleeve of fabric along the top back edge and stitching every inch or so through all layers of the quilt. You can then attach it to a wall or other display area easily with a sturdy rod.


      1. Materials used in manufacturing plastic bags, cardboard boxes, and wooden trunks and chests can all react with quilting fabrics. These should be avoided when storing quilts. If reactions occur with plastic bags, cardboard or wood, they can cause quilts to become fragile, prone to tearing or even stain them.
      2. When using a Rubbermaid or similar container for storage, make sure the textile is completely dry to avoid mildew from moisture trapped in the container.
      3. If you're hanging the quilt on the wall for the summer season, be sure distribute the weight evenly over the entire width to avoid stressing the fabric. Don't plan to store a quilt on a wall for more than six months.
      4. No matter how or where you store your quilts, avoid sunlight. All light damage to textiles is irreversible.

      What Is A Mystery Quilt....

      A mystery quilt is a set of instructions for a quilt that are presented one section at a time. The final quilt is a secret until the end of the last part is available.

      Mystery quilts can have a holiday theme like Christmas, Easter or Halloween; you may have quilting blocks based on colors, traditional pieced blocks or festive applique blocks, and they are fun!

      Choose a mystery quilt block that fits your skill level and have fun with it.

      The surprise of discovering just what kind of quilt you're creating is awesome.

      Have a great week everyone.
