I began following some Quilter's Blogs only a couple of years ago, made a few Shop Hops with some girlfriends, visited my favorite neighborhood shops, and watched several tutorials as I plodded along, learning this wonderful hobby!
With that straightened out, let me continue this journal entry...
|Northern Cardinal by Holly Taylor MODA|
She agreed to stay longer with me to help me with our elderly Dad, so on Saturday, we ventured out to shop for a couple hours at MSQC. She found the displayed Northern Cardinal Quilt irresistible and before I knew it, she was asking Jenny to measure fabrics at the famous tutorial place: "Jenny's Cutting Board"!
My sister even took a photo while Jenny held the quilt out, so that we can study it on the computer and learn from Jenny how to make a beautiful quilt!
|Learning to Square blocks|
Knowing she would need to pack her newly acquired knowledge in her home-bound suitcase for future references, I jumped on my computer to look for a tutorial on Hour Glass Blocks.
I found this link with awesome clear directions. Diary of a Quilter - a quilt blog: Hour Glass Block tutorial
This gave me the ability to show my sister what I was demonstrating in actual squaring her hour glass blocks.
