Basic Wholecloth Quilts Handbook

During the course of getting ready for next week's engagement, I've managed to get LOTS done on my computer and at my sewing machine. One of those rewards includes finally finishing up another handbook, Basic Wholecloth Quilts. This ended up being a 22-page handbook which takes you through the basic steps of creating your own wholecloth quilt, overall vs. medallion styles of designing, straight basting, blocking and some basic background designs. This is now available for sale for $11. Click Here to go to my Classroom Collection of handbooks!

I was also trying to figure out how to take my small miniature pieces with me which was next to impossible with lots of frames, etc. So I managed to put together a portfolio in a binder which turned out beautiful. Jenny came over today with those grandbabies and took pictures of each piece...if you scroll over the printed design the quilted design comes up. Click Here to check it out!

It was a great way to end 2009 with two granddaughters in the kitchen making Rice Krispy treats with chocolate frosting (ages 2 & 3). You can only imagine the sticky marshmallow stuff and warm chocolate all over doesn't get much better!

Thanks to all of you who have stayed in touch via my website and I'm looking forward to providing you with some great stuff next year. Happy New Year!!! Hugs, Cindy

Your wholecloth quilting is spectacular. I especially like the effect the beading creates in the center of your feathers. Nice job!

Here's to another year sharing a piece of your heart in your creative works. Thanks!
