Quilt Design Contest

I foresee more virtual quilting in my future with this contest (click on title) for the Threadbias Design Tool–and you don’t have to subscribe to the tool to enter.  And the prize? Enough fabric to actually make the quilt you design. I’ve done two drafts. But I think I’d better get to the sewing machine for the block challenge for my F2F guild meeting this week.

I’ve enjoyed the past two weeks of bloggers showing how they use the new Threadbias design tool (click title above for a sample) ; I’ve been playing with it too, but don’t have a plan to follow yet.  Doesn’t decrease my tangible stash, but it sure is fun.

Fair Trade cotton

I knew about fair trade coffee, tea, cocoa, and sugar. Today I learned about fair trade fabric. Although only the Ugandan is specifically labeled fair trade, other fabrics are made by small groups.

Rivers quilt project

One of the special exhibits at the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show; this one was inside. Not only does it depict a river, but the project also involved education about the rivers and a project to reintroduce salmon.
