Quilting The Kaye Wood Way
Have you discovered Wii? For my birthday, I treated myself to a Wii and the Wii Fit. It is great fun and great exercize.
Do you Wii? Wouldn't it be great if we had a quilt game on Wii? What would you put on your quilting game?
How is your Hexagon Challenge coming along? I am really anxious to have you compare techniques. Your next challenge will be coming soon.

We still have a few "Hurt Books" in our inventory. These are scratched and torn copies of our popular books. Although they are scratched or torn, they are intact - there is no information or pages missing. Deeply discounted, but quantities are limited.
Tips From Our Readers We have a Plexiglas company here where we live, and when I need a template I go and ask them to cut out, on scrap Plexiglas, the size template I need including the seam allowance, it doesn't matter to me what color, plus you can see through it, and you can choose 1/8", 1/4" thickness whatever you would like....Karlen Wood is not the best thing to use for templates but if it is all you have, you can put a coat of poly. on it and it will last forever. You can also recycle all kinds of things as Kaye said. I save every piece of cardboard I get, if it has a ruff edge I use tape on the edges. Thanks. Just thought I would put my two cents in... Sharon
I don't know if this tip has been suggested, but I use left over batting depending on the size of the left overs to make baby burp cloths or changing pads, and the small pieces I put in the dogs bedding for a softer feel....Sue

This is a quilt pattern I found online. It did not include the lion and tiger. I made the tent an 18″ block so I could fussy cut the interior action and the flags on top have the baby’s name embroidered on them. All the tails and ears are 3-D so he can play with them during tummy time....CyberBrat At a rummage sale, in a paper sack marked “fabric scraps-25¢,” there were many small fabric pieces with these squares of vintage ladies quilting at the bottom. A few months later I had this black and white quilt done. It hangs in the place of honor in my sewing room....Arlayne
