Dec 28, 2004 Kaye's Quilting Friends Email Newsletter
Image newsletter for Tuesday, Dec. 28th.Kaye Wood's Quilting and Sewing Online Newsletter
Hey everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Mine was fantastic after we finally got everyone home! That storm across the US was something else! But after 2 days of standing in lines at the airport, the last of my family finally made it. To me, it really doesn't matter what jolly old St. Nick has in his bag for me as long as I'm with my family. They're messy, loud and somewhat obnoxious at times, but by golly, they're mine and I sure wouldn't want to be without them!
Just a little FYI, we're back to our regular format. You will again get the newsletter on Tuesdays and the specials will consist of a monthly special and a bi-weekly special.
If you have any questions for Kaye, just post them to Terrye or myself and we'll do our best to get them answered for you.
If there is anything you might like to see in our newsletter that we don't already have, drop us an e-mail. I can't guarantee we'll use it, but we'll sure try our best.

This week we have a very popular book by the queen of Stack-n-Whack, Bethany Reynolds! If you're not familiar with the Stack-n-Whack method, let me explain. As according to Bethany, the Stack-n-Whack method is an easy way to create blocks with unique kaleidoscope designs. This method engages your eyes and mind through each step, from cutting, to piecing, to finishing. New designs emerge and change like patterns in a kaleidoscope! Never boring, certainly challenging, but easy enough for even beginners to do! This book includes 12 new quilt patterns using three of Bethany's simple methods. From classic to contemporary, in no time you will be making butterflies, fans, flowers, optical illusions and much more using the Stack-n-Whackier method! Filled with color illustrations, measurement charts for each project and paper templates, this book has it all and more. This week when you buy Bethany's Stack-n-Whackier book for $21.95, your s/h will be only $1.99! That's a savings of $4 to you! Add Bethany's trademark Stack-n-Whack ruler and your s/h will remain the same. Order today and soon you too will be a true Stack-n-Whackier quilter! This special lasts for 2 weeks, so check it out!

Questions and Answers with Kaye.
Q: What is the "rule of thumb" on the amount of shrinkage on a quilt?
K: The shrinkage in a quilt will depend on the batting. A very thin batting will shrink very little, while heavier ones tend to have more shrinkage. You should always follow the directions for your batting and fabric to see if it should be pre-washed. That avoids any surprises later on.
Q: What is the general requirements on how much fabric to purchase for a quilt?
K: For the quilt top a twin size will generally take 6 yds., a full size 8 yds., a queen 10 yds. while a king would be 12 yds. These are estimations based on the quilts I've made.
Q: When you want to make a crazy quilt from clothing, where should you start?
K: Start in the center of a square. Add an odd sized piece and another sewing right sides down. Keep adding pieces till it's the size you want. Any size or color fabric can be used,
Q: What is the best thing to use for getting spray adhesive off a cutting board?
K: I normally use rubbing alcohol.
