Kaye Wood's Quilting Newsletter
July 22, 2008
Access to all the goodies on our Kaye Wood website!
Hey everyone! It's shaping up to be a beautiful summer here in Northern Michigan! My favorite part is just starting to kick in, when the home grown produce becomes available! There is nothing better than a sun ripened tomato, fresh off the vine, or an ear of corn just picked! Add in berries, cherries and all the other little goodies we grow here, and you just can't beat it! The smell, taste and texture is so much better when you can get these items freshly picked. All around Michigan, little fruit and vegetable stands are popping up along the side of the roads. If you get the chance, I highly recommend you stop and purchase some of this wonderful fare while it is available. I guarantee you won't be disappointed!

Karen uses three different reds and blues in the setting blocks to give it a scrappy look, but use your imagination and your own color scheme.

Quilts of Valor update.
Hey everyone, in our newsletter a few months ago, I told you about a wonderful group called Quilts of Valor. Quilts of Valor is a non-profit organization, that makes quilts for our service personnel, wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan. This group is always having "sew-in" events, and definitely have a need for more blocks. If you'd like to make a block to donate to this cause, just click the link below for more details, and the address on where to send your finished block. There are a couple of free block patterns available on their site, that they are currently using for their quilts.
If you'd like to view quilts made by the Quilts of Valor group, including those using Kaye's Rail Fence pattern, just click the link.
We want your tips!
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 love to hear about them! Just e-mail your tip to me at the address below, and it will find a place in our newsletter!
1) When stacking your stash of fabrics on a shelf, place a sheet of acid-free typing paper between each fabric. Removing a selection from the stack becomes much easier. Claudia R.
2) Hi, I have a heck of a time threading needles. If I hold the eye of the needle against a white background, it shows the eye much better. Thanks, Fran
3) As a longarm quilter, I have pieces of batting left over and never could figure out what to do with them. One of the best tips I have found was to use that batting on your dust mop. It really cleans everything up just great! Moneca O.
Show & Tell
Here is a beautiful quilt from one of our readers to view! Thanks to all of your that submit and share your quilts and stories with us. I know everyone enjoys them as much as I do!
This quilt was made with help from my late friend Mae. She never got to see the finished quilt, but I am sure she would have loved it. The back is like a kitchen from the 50's, with the aprons all appliqued. Then the whole quilt was machine quilted. Nel
