      Welcome to the 15th Annual Northern Michigan Lamb & Wool Festival

      September 27 & 28, 2014

      Hi Quilters!

      Today at the Cabin:

      They say there's only 37(ish) days until Spring. Ok, then. We'll see about that. I know from experience that I will still be seeing some of this snow in late April. At that point I will declare it spring. As long as there is still enough snow in the woods for snowshoes and still enough snow on the hills for skiing and still enough ice on the lakes for ice fishing and skating, it's still Winter!

      Reader's Question....

      What is the Needle Matching Technique

      A Needle Match is used for the "V" that forms at the top and bottom of the diamonds, when putting diamonds together to make stars. At the top and bottom, the two segments overlap. The stitching line starts and stops at the point they overlap. Your sewing machine needle is used to line up the diamonds.

      1. Put the sewing machine needle down into the machine. Insert the two segments under the machine presser foot, with the needle set to sew a 1/4" seam. The needle will be in the exact spot where the two segments overlap. If the needle is not in the spot where the two segments overlap, leave the needle down and adjust the segments so they do overlap exactly at the needle.

      2. Start sewing on a Starter Scrap and chainstitch to the next set of diamonds. Sew the C diamond to the B diamond. Sew the F diamond to the E diamond. Sew all the way from top to bottom to anchor this seam. Anchoring the seam at the outside of the star makes it easier to do the "Y" seams that are used to piece diamonds around the star.

      3. Set the seams. Press the seam allowances away from the middle (B and E) diamonds.

      4. Trim the points of the seam allowances that extend past the half stars.

      New Cruise Scheduled - Quilting Cruise To The Caribbean....

      It's a Sewing and Quilting Cruise - March 30, 2014

      Do you like to make quilts? Do you enjoy being with other quilters?

      Is it fun to take quilting classes? How about some new sewing techniques?

      Now you can take a cruise and take quilting classes from Kaye Wood and Veronica Cox and sewing classes from Emma Seabrooke and Mary Carollo.

      Kaye loves to teach quilting classes and loves to cruise.

      To date, she has taken quilters on 19 cruises to the Caribbean, Mediterranean, Alaska, Mexico and New Zealand.

      Just what is a sewing and quilting cruise?
      We are just a small group aboard a big ship.

      While at sea, we have sit-and-sew classes, lectures, demonstrations, show & tell, sharing. Non-sewing people have all of the ship's programs, shopping, entertainment and special events. So if you bring your spouse, family members or friends, there will be plenty for them to do while you sew & quilt.

      When in port, there are all of the usual tourist things to do.

      And all of the supplies for classes are furnished - Janome sewing machines, rulers, rotary cutters, mats, irons, fabric, etc. So you bring no sewing supplies.

      So come on board on the Round Bobbin Sew Fun Cruise to the Eastern Caribbean.

      We will leave Ft. Lauderdale on March 30, 2014 for 7 nights of fun and sun on Celebrity's new ship, Silhouette.

      Our ports of call will be St. Maarten, St. Kitts and San Juan, Puerto Rico.

      Just call Bonnie at Cruise One  800-784-4480 and you can be part of this fun adventure.

      Complete class details at www.roundbobbin.com

      Show and Tell....


      I started this quilt waaaaaay back in 2000-ish. Found the Cowgirls (Moda - Lynn Brown paintings) at Quilt Festival in Houston and knew that they were perfect for a quilt for my Mother in Law, who was a cowgirl in her younger days and a darn good barrel-racer with her horse Goldie.


      Send in your creations. Include a picture or two and a short story about your quilt/tablerunner or wallhanging (or other) and we'll put it on our Show and Tell Page!
