A little bit of this

a little bit of that.
Truth be told.........I spend a lot of time on the computer.  I search e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g to find machine quilting ideas, new quilt designs, new information.  With that being said let's see what I found in those categories lately.
Machine quilting ideas...........I'm getting a bit tired of doing stippling.  This just happened to come into my email inbox one day.  I do like this and will have to give it a go.

I like the next one too.  I was thinking this could be used on sashings!

I am always on the lookout for new quilting ideas.  The disappearing nine patch is great, and this is but another way to put it together.  It's a freebie.  Click on the link below and follow the instructions.
I really like this idea.  It's a jelly roll
and you can find the instructions for it here
Now for some information.  Things maybe you had forgotten or just didn't know.
First off 
Charm Math.......charms.....those little pre-cut 5" squares
What can you do with a 5" square?  More than I thought
Last one for today.  I read this a couple of weeks ago and this is the best I have ever seen on how Batik fabrics are made.  It took me awhile to fall in love with batiks, but now that I have.......
A long week-end is on our doorstep.  Karl and I are going to do a day trip.  There is a quilt show up in Chesterfield (which really no longer exists except for the cemetery) and then out to lunch in New Hamburg.  There are two quilt shops up there, so I may or may not do damage to my wallet!
The weather forecast has changed for the three days so I should get some sewing done, because I don't like clouds, rain, clouds, rain!
