Tuesday Tips

Happy Groundhog Day!  The groundhog did not see his shadow.  The legend of the groundhog states we will have an early Spring when the groundhog doesn't see his shadow.  We will see how that plays out.  We have had a mild winter.
When I was surfing on Facebook last week, I came across this link to a video by Angela Walters.  I think she shares three important things quilters should quit doing.

Remember to enjoy the process and the journey.  After watching the video leave me your comments.  I am interested in seeing some discussion on this topic.

The other link I found on Facebook was the mention of Temecula Quilt Co blog.  So I found their blog and found this little quilt, Circa 2016, with a free pattern if you follow the posts.  Its all scrappy and uses small pieces.  Another way to use up that stash!  Their pictures show civil war fabrics, which I love.
We are expecting rain and possibly thunderstorms here.  As long as we do not have lightning and thunder, I will finish the batik quilt. 

The next quilt waiting to be quilted is a tulip quilt.  That Spring-like quilt will cheer me up when its so dreary outside. 
Yours in quilting,


  1. Thanks for the links! We are having thunderstorms here today. Crazy in Feb!

  3. What Angela says is true--we as quilters are all too willing to dismiss compliments and to point out our mistakes. I'm not sure why, but perhaps it's humility. I don't do it anymore because I've learned to let others find what they want in my work--they will either like it or not as they choose. Of course, I like it best when they love something I've done, so if I get a compliment, man do I accept it!

  4. Well, I hope your weather allows you to quilt as much as you like! Thanks for linking up to Building Blocks Tuesday!
