      Hey everyone! I hope you're having a wonderful week! Things are pretty quiet here as Kaye and some of the girls are in Paducah, KY and out of the office this week. It's like part of my family is gone! Did you know that most people spend more time with the people they work with, than their own families? I guess I'm pretty lucky to have the co-workers that I do! Here are some words of wisdom I came across, that actually made sense to me. Hope you enjoy them!
      The more you give, the more you get. The more you laugh, the less you fret. The more you do unselfishly, the more you live abundantly. The more of everything you share, the more you'll always have to spare. The more you love, the more you'll find, that life is good and friends are kind. For only what we give away, enriches us from day to day.

      Do you have a special little tip that has worked for you, that you'd like to share? We are always open to new things and would like to hear about them. Just e-mail it to me at the address below and it will find a place in our newsletter!
      mailto:joyce@...?subject=sharewithus

      1) An easy way to mark a quilt for quilting without making lines on the quilt. Use Press & Seal paper, regular weight not freezer. Place the paper directly on the place where you will quilt and trace the quilting stencil with a sharpie pen. It is better to put only the paper on a hoop for the time being. You can quilt right through the paper and when finished, easily tear it away. No lines on your quilt to get rid of. Hilda P.
      2) I am making a Celtic block and while cutting my bias strips, our instructor told us to spray starch them. Well, doing each strip separately was a pain in the neck and time consuming! I threw all of my strips into a Ziplock bag and sprayed starch into the bag. I gave it a good shake and let it sit for a couple of hours. The starch was evenly distributed and there was no mess. Then I put it through a bias maker and ironed them. Just be sure to keep the bag closed or they will dry out. If you can't use them right away, put them in the frig, so they won't go moldy. Hope you can use this little hint! H.S.
      3) When I baste my quilt, I make sure to use threat that is a contrasting color, so I can be sure to get all of the basting threads out. Nora, MI
      4) I made a nifty little portable ironing board that I take to my classes. It was very easy, all I did was glue cotton batting to an empty fabric bolt. I covered that with a piece of cotton fabric and glued the edges. Light to carry and always comes with me. Heather, NB

      This quilt was made for a cancer benefit. It brought $1,200.00. I loved making this quilt, it is the Folded Hexagon Star from the Stars Made Simple book by Kaye Wood. The fussy cutting was the best! Thelma

      I had made a load of Dresden Plates and a bunch of Sussex Puffs. I placed the Sussex Puffs in the middle of the Dresden Plates. Being new to patchwork, I didn't know what to do next! At our monthly P.Q. meeting, there was a super American speak called Dawn Cameron-Dick. She suggested the idea for the nine patch corners, the borders and the sashings. Now I have this "proud to have made it" quilt! Beryl

      I helped one of my friends make this 50th wedding anniversary picture quilt, of their family! I thought she did great for this being her first quilt and my first picture quilt! Cathie
