      Hi Quilters!

      Today at the Cabin:

      Wonderful, awesome vacation!

      Back to work, back to real life, back to peas, tomatoes and radishes! Mowing grass, fishing and swimming in the big lakes. Bar BQ, boating and bonfires.

      Summer is good, but way too short up here. I've already seen some trees starting to show some color. That is just wrong!

      Did You Know....

      There are many things to look for when picking out your fabrics. Here are just a few items of interest.

      Check the weave. You want your fabric to be strong, especially if you want it to last for years to come. If it is not strong enough, you could have problems with tearing and damage over time.

      Cotton is always a good choice. Especially if you're just starting out, it's easier to work with then other fabrics. Plus, cotton just feels good to the touch!

      Make sure it's a colorfast fabric. You are eventually going to have to clean your quilt and you don't want your colors to run! If you're not sure about your fabric, test it before you use it in your quilt. You can trim a piece off and wash it or wash all of the fabric by itself. That way, if it does run, you won't ruin any other fabrics.

      You can really get caught up in all the fabulous fabric choices once you hit the fabric store, so make sure to keep your goal in mind. Remember the project at hand, who it is for or where it is going. Color can make or break the whole look and feel of your quilt, so take your time. Try different colors and patterns side by side to see how they work together.

      Too much is better then not enough. Buy extra of the fabric you're planning to use. There is nothing worse then needing more, going to your store and finding they are either out of it, or it's not available any longer.

      Don't forget the fabric for the back of your quilt. It too should mesh well with your color scheme.

      Be careful if you have a pattern on your fabric when cutting. You want them going the same way, not hither and dither.

      I take mousepads from the computer and put them under my sewing machines foot pedal. This prevents it from sliding all over.

      My favorite thing to quilt is mini quilts. I can finish them quickly and change them before I become bored with what's hanging on my wall. To avoid wear and tear on the paint job of my walls, I began using Poster Tape. It holds them beautifully and I can find it anywhere scotch tape is sold. No holes in my wall, no mess!

      Roman Fountains Technique DVD

      Due to a rollover car accident last Oct., I have had to have a bridge put in my mouth. The dentist gave me what he called a floss threader, to get dental floss under the bridge. This is a little, blue plastic loop. Because my eyes are not as good as they used to be, I took this dental threader and put it into my quilting needle eye. Then I put the thread through the loop and pulled it gently through the eye of the needle! Presto, simplicity in threading the needle! This also works on machine needles and most smaller hand sewing needles. I sure hope this suggestions helps someone else as much as it has helped me! Love you newsletters, thank you so much!

      When I'm holding my template down while cutting my fabric, I use just the tips of my fingers, not the palms. That way, when I lift up my hand, I have found the ruler has less chance of moving.
