Strip Twist - new project

It's Fat Quarter Frenzy this weekend at the shop. Yesterday I indulged in some (ok a lot) of Quilter's Tweed fat quarters. Strip Twist is a pattern that has been in my stash for about 3 years now and it's been calling me. I decided to take the plunge and use the tweed with a black batik. I really like how the first 20 blocks turned out...of course there are 88 blocks to go.





Hopefully this quilt will get me off my quilting hiatus and back into my studio on a more regular basis.

Block of the Week - Google Docs

I just wanted to clear something up because I've gotten a barrage of emails recently.  If you're having problems downloading the documents for the block of the week, try refreshing your browser, clearing your cache, browse through the Google help files or even try a different internet browser.  I upload the files, I double check the links, I check the links again from a different computer.  I check them with 2 different browsers and I get the files to download even on my husbands ancient computer.  Unfortunately, I've been unable to duplicate any of the problems that have been mentioned in the emails so I don't know how to tell you guys how to fix them.  I'm sorry.

Lanyard

This project definitely falls into the 'why didn't I do this sooner?' category! A new lanyard for my work keys that took less than 15 minutes to make. I figured it would be fun to start featuring fun/new fabrics around my neck.
