For spring of 2012, I’m offering Introduction to Paper Piecing and Unfinished Paper Piecing (UFPP) through Honey Bee Quilt Store in Austin, Texas.
You can find my schedule here.
Don’t miss 12 for 2012 as we craft-along to finish 12 UFOs in 12 months!
Have more than 12? Pick the ones you want to see completed by the end of the year!
Have less than 12? Add in some projects you’ve been meaning to work on!
Post your list to your blog and keep us updated as the year progresses. You are also invited to share your progress photos with our flickr group!
Look for my 12 for 2012 list later this week!
There and Back Again, The Hobbit Block of the Month (affectionately known as TABABOM) continues throughout 2012 on Fandom In Stitches!
Look for a new block the first Wednesday of each month, with each block being a surprise as we journey with Bilbo!
Fandom In Stitches patterns are designed by fans, for fans and are free of charge.
There are lots of very crafty ladies currently making TTMT videos. The variety of talents is endless and always inspiring!
Have you ever thought about vlogging about your crafts? We’d love for you to join us!
In November of 2012, I will celebrate my tenth year as a Linus Connection volunteer! I have spent almost all of those years at the Linus webmistress and am now on my second go as a Board Member.
I’m currently in charge of blanket packing and distribution during our monthly meetings, which simply means I make sure each facility gets what they need from the donated blankets we receive. I also write all the blog posts for our group, as well as take care of our Facebook and Twitter pages.
You will hear me talk about “Linus” a lot. When I do, I’m always referring to The Linus Connection of Central Texas, a small non-profit based right here in Austin.
My personal goal is 2 blankets a month, or 24 blankets per year.
In 2012, I will continue to collect Stars for Linus (see above!). In 2011, we donated 3 Stars for Linus quilts to The Linus Connection. This year, let’s try to make it 4!
Each quilt block needs to be 12″ (12 1/2″ unfinished) and made in bright colors with a light background.
You can find my mailing address on the Stars for Linus pattern. For best results, print without scaling. If your pattern scales down, simply make the borders a little bigger and then square up to 12 1/2″!
The Faces of Quilting come in all shapes, sizes, ages and skin tones.
Share your story of quilting on your own blog and post your photo in our flickr group!
Well, I guess that about sums it up! This week I’m planning a look back at 2011 as well as my 12 for 2012 post. I hope you are having a very happy new year!
