Let The Celebration Begin!!

Well, it's  April 1st and also April Fools Day. This is no joke, I am participating in a month long of weekly give aways. The first item in the block is a charm pack, "Urban Couture" by Moda. Who couldn't use more charm squares? Collect enough and you can make an old fashioned charm quilt. Does anyone make charm quilts anymore?

  3. I don't have a favorite "technique" yet as I'm just starting out. :) Thank you for the great chance. This looks like it would be my kind of fabric!

  4. Hi AJ -- I subscribed to your blog yesterday. :-) My favourite technique? Chain-piecing 1/2-square triangles, having marked the sewing lines with the tool I got for this back in the '90s. It looks like a ruler but has slits down the middle; put your marking tool (I use a mechanical pencil) in the slits to mark where you *cut*, and draw lines on either side -- along the edge of the ruler, 1/4" wide (of course) for where you sew. Stack your marked pairs, and away you go!

  7. I've been doing so many different techniques right now I'm not sure I have any favorites, one that I'm excited about is a new way I learned how to make flying geese and it was soooooo easy!

  10. Hi AJ I think my favourite quilting technique is just good old piecing - I love the look of the traditional pieced blocks and love feeding the fabric through my machine so I get lovely long chains of pieced pieces. Thanks for the giveaway.

  12. My favourite technique is doing half square triangles with triangle paper (e.g. Thangles). I like the fact that you can make a lot in a short sewing time - and no marking!

  24. My favorite quilting technique is "Cotton Theory" quilting which is a quilt as you go technique by Betty Cotton, which is a little different than some of the other ways to do this.

  36. Don't really have a favorite quilting technique as I am just a beginner. My favorite part of quilting is looking at all the beautiful fabric, the worst part is picking them out, as I usually love them all.
