June 7, 2005!
Life is full of "Plan B's"!
For example, last night, my beloved husband mistook my precious hollyhocks for burdock. Granted, before they flower, they do sort of look alike - sort of. Well, my carefully tended hollyhock border is no more. So what does that have to do with Plan B? Now, since that area is all mowed off, and yes, there were some burdock in there, I can replant the whole area with hollyhocks, not just the border! So, as you can probably tell, all of our pictures this week are devoted to my late hollyhocks!
Our internet specials are:
For June, the 6th month will get you Kaye’s Strip Quilting Projects Book 9, the Victorian Sampler Quilt, for only $6.00!

Kaye just finished this updated version of her Around The Islands Quilt. Done in beautiful Caribbean Blue fabrics, it’s called Cruise Around The Islands, and was inspired by her recent quilting cruise (there’s another one coming up….)
You need Adobe Acrobat to download this pattern, (sorry webtv users, I haven’t got it transcribed into a web page yet, but I’ll be sure to let you know..)
Did I mention another quilting cruise?

Did you know most traditional quilts are designed using Euclid geometry?
Euclid geometry consists of standard squares, triangles and circles.
Do you know what non-Euclid geometry is? Non-Euclid geometry describes the rough edges of the world - the mathematical designs known as fractals.
What is a fractal and what does a fractal art quilt look like? Come and find out at http://www.roserushbrooke.com
Here you will find galleries of quilts created by Rose Rushbrooke, tutorials, and specially selected quilting supplies and notions.
If you haven’t seen the Quilting News Network channel on the internet, you’re missing out! 24/7 quilting shows from your favorite designers!
You really need a high speed connection to view it, but even with a dialup, you can get some of it. Go here to check it out:
This is fairly new, please take a minute to check it out, it’s a very interesting channel!

Readers Ask Kaye:
Why buy fat quarters and not just use old scraps and pieces?
Kaye: Of course you can use old scraps and pieces, but the fat quarters give quilters more of a variety without buying a lot of fabric that may end up unused.
Which of your patterns would be good to enlarge to a King Size quilt
Kaye: Both of my new patterns, Stacking My Blocks and also Hearts in Bloom are able to be made bigger. The yardage requirements for 4 different sizes as well as the instructions are included in both!
