So, for my one monthly goal, I am going to finish my hugs and kisses wall hanging, in entirety. Thank you, Red Rooster Quilts, for giving this to me, block by block every two weeks. I also need to thank them for allowing me to deposit my paycheck at their store every two weeks when I went to get my “free” quilt block. I would love to see the statistics on their sales and see the benefits of this way to get more money from us quilters. I don’t blame them, I love the shop. I would imagine that people may have went more often and bought things they really did not need (not talking about myself, no I am not). I think of the 26 weeks, I only went three times and walked out with nothing, and that was likely due to being short on time. And yes, should they do this again, I will fall prey to their clever marketing schemes. Fortunately, or unfortunately, it is about a mile from where I work. So, when the nerds start getting on my nerves, I must go to a happy place. $$$
So, last week-end, Lynn and I had our own Sew in. She brought this beautiful quilt she had done. She had such awesome quilting. I asked how she did. She told me she traced her design on freezer paper, ironed it on and then follow along. Sounded like something I needed to try, which is why you see the freezer paper all over my Hugs and Kisses quilt. Hoping it makes my quilting less scary. I had a picture on my phone, but some how bunches of my photo’s keep disappearing.
