Wilton Blueberry Festival Quilt & Rug Show August 6th



Country Square Quilters of Jay/Wilton want you to mark your calendars for their upcoming quilt and rug show to be held on Saturday, August 6th from 10-3 at the Wilton United Methodist Church, 600 Main St. in Wilton.

Enjoy not only the rugs and quilts, but many more festival events!

Great Idea!

You know, believe it or not, not everything is about quilting (yes, I know, the drugs are wearing off!).

Take one of those noodles you can get at the dollar store, tie with rope to fit around a plastic bin. Add ice and drinks and throw in the pool or lake. Add a rope to tie it to the wharf/tree it if you use the lake so you won't have to retrieve it.

You can also use this for float for your paper piecing, lol! ;)

Quilting Tip of the Week 6.23.16



Hitting up any yard sales? Or maybe just checking out your cellar or garage? Here are a couple of novel ideas for storage use of your scissors (do you really need that many pairs?) and threads. I don't believe this is a full-size ironing board, but for those of you who have a ton of threads for your machine embroidery and LAQ, this might work for you!
