If you read this I hope you will spread the word. We need more players in my April Quilt Block Swap!!
You make only one 12 1/2" quilt block and exchange with a partner. The only condition is you have to use one of my quilt block designs. There are loads of them available.
They aren't hard to make! I have shortcut methods that make the intricate looking quilt blocks easy to make!!
So if you are interested or know someone who would like to play along
I am considering going to the Int. Quilt Festival in Houston in November with 3 friends, but want to stay somewhere that is on their shuttle route, or safe walking distance. The 1st 2 yrs we attended they had an extensive system of shuttles, but the last time we were there, the routes had been pared down and did not service the hotel where we stayed. I did not find any info on the IQF website re: shuttle service. Any ideas or suggestions?

It forms stitches very well. It also feeds points through without eating them down the hole. I found, though, that I had to adjust where the 1/4" mark is- it takes more than 1/4 directly at the
