New Arrivals from Twin Cities Quilting

Hi Everyone,

First off, Jamie and I are off to Quilt Market in Kansas City first thing in the morning.  I hope to post some photos on Instagram while I'm there.  We've been looking forward to seeing new items.  I've been ordering the new fabrics like mad.  Many of the manufacturers are releasing goods this summer that are perfect for Twin Cities Quilting.  I know you will love them as I introduce you to them in these emails.  Right now we are receiving less fabric than usual.  That should change over the next month.  As you know ...

Back to Basics: Easy Blocks Made Spectacular + Blog Hop from Quilter Chic

Inside: Quick Techniques to make your basic quilt blocks amazing!

My first patchwork project was made using cardboard templates and scissors! Many years later my mother-in-law gave me a rotary cutter and mat, but I still didn’t know how to use them. I cut things out one square at a time!

Beginning and advanced quilters have it much easier these days, and one resource you might like is Teresa Mairal Barreu’s new book, Turnabout Patchwork. I’m joining her for a blog hop this week highlighting her projects and methods.
