Recently, I’ve been asked several times how I remove paper from my blocks. Back in January 2008, I made a video to show just that. This was pre-TTMT, which seems like an age ago.
This is the way I do it…if you have a different technique, I’d love to hear about it.
Enjoy this blast from my video past!

It literally took me ALL DAY to upload this video. Between a faulty internet connection and a really long video, I thought I would miss my first Tuesday since starting TTMT in 2009! Fortunately, I did *not* miss posting on Tuesday and I hope the video is worth the wait.
Herein lies massive post-quilt-retreat Show & Tell! There will be a photo post in the near future. I’m just waiting for a wee bit of sunshine so I can get fabulous out-of-doors photos!
The Ugly Quilt, a quilting experiment gone wrong. I just could not make myself like this. I tried. Eventually, I just gave up and stitched the blocks together. Several people told me it was very striking. The two redeeming qualities of this quilt – it lay perfectly flat for quilting and it squared up exactly. I’m sure someone will love it, I was just very tired of looking at it.
Blue Granny – I love this ‘ghan. It is made of leftovers from Blue Bricks and the last couple of skeins of blue yarn in my stash.
I’m always excited to receive emails and photos when someone has made something from a pattern or tutorial that I created. Imagine my excitement when I received a video instead! This particular video is extra special because it’s about my favorite two things, Harry Potter and quilting. That’s not even the best part. The quilt was made by a teenage quilter, Abby!
Thanks to her mom, Franci, for sharing her videos.
