Our Reader's Show and Tell....
This is the wonkiest quilt I have ever tried to make and caused me much stress. When I started I planned to make a trains, trucks, and buses type quilt for this small boy who said his favorite color was yellow. By the time I bought the fabrics and got started he had decided his favorite color was red and that he liked to fix things and enjoyed tools. So I bought a Mr. Fixit quilt kit and planned to add extra borders to that. By the time I was well started on that, the favorite color was still the same, but now he planned to be a "hunter of bear and a hunter of deer" when he grew up. So I just kept changing blocks around and adding things every time I heard something new until I got to an appropriate quilt size. So this quilt has carpentry tools, adult animals, baby animals, barns, plane, tractor, gardens, heavy equipment, and all kinds of colors. Never ever would I have tried to put these colors or fabric designs together by choice.
But, the family and the child like it I guess....Jeanne

I've made several quilts and have learned 3 key steps: 1. measure twice, cut once 2. you cannot overpin 3. always iron your seams as you go. Your projects will always have a professional look to them....Gloria
Have a table for cutting that is tall enough so you don't hurt your back bending over so much. Otherwise, be sure to stretch frequently. I use a pad of sticky notes which I stuck at my quarter inch seam marking on the sewing machine table, so I can just butt my fabric up against it when I'm sewing and know I'm on the right mark....SandyAre You A Member of our Facebook Group?

Kaye On TV....
We get a lot of phone calls and emails asking where to find Kaye on their TV. The simple answer is we don't know, (sorry). Here's what to do. Call your PBS, cable and satellite providers and ask them. If they don't show it, ask them to add it to their lineup. Our shows are called Kaye's Quilting Friends and Quilting The Kaye Wood Way.We Want To Know....
Wikipedia says a thimble is a small hard pitted cup worn for protection on the finger that pushes the needle in sewing and quilting.
We want to know... what kind of a thimble do you use?
I think that's all for this week. Have a great week and awesome Father's Day. Hope to see you at one of our shows!Father's Day....
There are about 7 different stories as to the origination of Father's Day, but this seems to be the most prominent.
"Father's Day is always the third Sunday in June. Father's Day honors the role of dads and men who serve in father-like roles in the lives of others.
Fathers, grandfathers, stepfathers, fathers-to-be all have a day to stand in the spotlight on Father's Day. As "non-traditional" family structures become more common, any nurturing man - big brothers, brothers-in-law, uncles, neighbors and others who are "like a father" - are likely to be honored on Father's Day.
Father's Day originated in 1909 when a woman named Sonora Dodd came up with the idea. Mrs. Dodd's father, William Jackson Smart, had raised her and her five siblings after their mother died in childbirth. While listening to a Mother's Day sermon at a church near her family's home in eastern Washington State, Mrs. Dodd thought about the sacrifices her father had made for his children and the fine job he had done in raising them. Because her father had been born in June, she decided to encourage the churches in her area to honor fathers in June. Through her efforts, the first Father's Day was celebrated in Spokane, Washington, in June 1910.
Although Congress passed several resolutions over the years in support of Father's Day, it did not become an official U.S. holiday until 1972, when then-President Nixon issued a proclamation declaring the third Sunday in June as Father's Day in the United States." From Calendar-Updates.com
