Happy Mother's Day

12 May 2013


Happy Mother's Day.  I was visiting Ben Behunin's (www.potterboy.com) home on Saturday, he is a master potter (and also an author). I had to get this tile. He puts all kinds of quirky sayings on tiles. I met him for the first time at the Ruby's Inn quilt retreat this past winter.

patchwork quilt free tutorial

Hello fabric friends. I'm Amy Smart and I like to share my quilt-making/fabric-hoarding adventures at my blog, Diary of a Quilter. Today I am going to share a tutorial for creating a simple variation on a traditional patchwork quilt, using a shape traditionally called "tumblers". This pattern is great for really showing off cute fabrics so the collection I used was perfect: So Happy Together, brand new from Deena Rutter. Cutting the blocks for this quilt is so much easier with a template. I used Lori Holt's large "Thimble" ruler for my blocks. You can see Lori ... ...read more
