What quilting type do you enjoy most?  Do you keep pictures of the quilts you make?
If not, I encourage you to start right away.  They bring such joy to others and I try
to get a picture before I use one or give it away.  Lots of memories in each one I have
created.  What is you favorite style?
Cathedral Windows - several different techniques to make this classic design.
Rag Quilts - raw edges are easy to create a fun quilt.  These seem to 
     work best with flannels, or Homespun fabrics
T-Shirt/Memory Quilts - transform old t-shirts of sports, schools, etc. into a quilt
     of ole favorite T's.  Children's clothing, old clothes, tablecloths can be used for 
     memory quilts.
Panels - use a stunning panel and play with coordinating or your pick to build the 
     panel into the size quilt for you!
Crazy quilts - use up your scraps of every kind; flannel, silk, cotton as random as
     possible.  Delightful to try at least once.
Art Quilt - many use a photograph or picture and cut pieces of fabric to "paint"
     a piece of art.
Scrappy Quilt - Nine patches to use scraps, simple Irish Chain is a great way to test 
     your ability to practice "random" simple piecing.
Charm Quilt - scrap quilt, create a lovely quilt but only use each fabric ONCE!
So, what is your favorite?  Pick a quilt you haven't tried and let us help you.
If you try a different quilt, send us a picture or bring in your creation to show us!
Any questions about any type of quilt, we are here to help you, I suggest you try
something different - keep that brain active.  


All smiles!                                        Back Room, sale!
