(Right) This is my second one-seam Flying Geese quilt. Love the pattern, it is very easy....Betty
(Left) My sister Peggy ordered this pattern for me, Rings That Bind from Kaye Wood about a year ago because I thought it looked so simple, but turned out to be a challenge. I've been quilting about 2 years and I love all of Kayes books and patterns. My family calls me, Jackie Kaye.. lol.. cause I like to tell them I like quilting the Kaye Wood way, or that isn't the way Kaye says to do it....Jackie
Send me your Show and Tell pictures and stories (50 words or less, please)Tips From Our Readers....
To thread a sewing machine needle: Place a piece of white cardboard,(business card will do) in back of needle to find the eye, then moisten BOTH the thread and the needle eye. The thread will just glide through...Maryann
Power strips can be machine savers on a daily business, but it is most important to totally disconnect your machines when you will be absent from home/studio for more than a couple of days. One severe jolt to your household system can easily result in severe damage and possibly fire, especially during a heightened storm season. This also applies to computers. I find it easiest to simply unplug the power strip leaving all machine cords intact. Even if reaching the wall plug is somewhat of a chore, it is much simpler than detaching all those individual power cords....DeinyaWe want your tips!

A group of friends went deer hunting and paired off in twos for the day. That night, Will returned alone, staggering under the weight of an eight-point buck.
"Where's Joe?" the others asked.
"Joe had a stroke of some kind. He's a couple of miles back up the trail," Will replied.
"You left Joe laying out there and carried the deer back?" they inquired.
"A tough call," he nodded. "But I figured no one is going to steal Joe!"Quilting the Kaye Wood Way
