I’m a bit late with the report this month. I’ve been in the throes of Quilt Market prep. I’ll try to get some good photos and show and tell you more about all that later. For now, suffice it to say that I sank to a new low this time around — I actually went […]

Half-Square Triangles

Half-Square Triangles

Let’s talk about Half-Square Triangles for a bit, shall we? (Then be sure and read to the bottom for a special announcement.) There are more methods for making them than you can shake a stick at!

Our guild is having a handmade bazaar at this year’s Brunswick Pecan Festival (this weekend in Brunswick, MO), and members are making handmade items to put in the booth so we can raise a little money for the guild. If you’re anywhere in the vicinity of […]
