Mulberry Mille Basting Frame

Upright quilt basing frame (Click title to access website)

Here is a great link to a basting frame that you can stand or sit to pin! Be sure to view the Utube video to see how it works. Unfortunately, the cost of the frame and postage is over $700 (ships from "down under"). The inventor tells me that she hopes to have it patent and a distributor in the USA very soon.

New Twister Projects-Christmas Tree and Jack O' Lantern

I think designing new patterns is just as much fun as making them. Here is a Christmas tree that I am going to add a small yo-yo garland and trim the presents under the tree. I'll add a red inner border and then a larger Christmas print border. This would be an excellent wall hanging for a friend or family member with limited space or in a nursing home to brighten their holidays!

The Jack O' Lantern is just as easy to make! I'll add a curled green vine on the top of the pumpkin and add a black inner border and then a Halloween print larger border.
