Maine Quilts Adds a New Workshop

Maine Quilts is adding a workshop, Saturday July 26, full day with Dodi Poulsen
Do you like a good mystery? Dodi is offering a second mystery quilt replacing the Chinese Penny workshop.
“We will be taking a trip to an unknown destination. Pack your suitcase, put on your hiking shoes, bring your camera and get ready to have an excursion of exceptional proportions! Wear comfortable clothing…we will be visiting our destination for an extended sewing time!
Where will our trip take you?
Will it be to the Orient? Will you see an old English Cottage? How about a trip to the Tropics? That will depend on your fabric choices. You will decide what your quilt will look like.”
To register for this new workshop use the same Workshop and Event form, the same class number, #311 and indicate mystery.
The supply list will be on the website by the end of the month. http://www.mainequilts.org/ for Workshop and Event registration form.

Quilting Tip of the Week 5.15.14

 
Instead of buying those expensive rolls of pre-printed quilting paper, try using adding machine tape! I take a 2' length of tape and using a template mark my lines. I then cut about three more pieces of the same length of paper and pin together. Using a non-threaded long stitch, I sew over the marked lines.

Place the ready pieces on the quilt and stitch away! Remember to always use a smaller stitch so you can remove the paper easily.
