Hi Quilters!

Today at the Cabin:

Happy Turkey Day (or week) Everyone!

So, Black Friday!

This is soooo not for me. Standing in line (in Northern Michigan, in November - you do the math!) for hours, sending the kids next door to get hot cocoa and KFC and swearing you'll never do it agan (the 52" Flat Screen TV was a nice score though), all to beat out everyone else that wants the same prize! (I won, I won!) lol. But likely I won't ever do it again. There was a first time, which ironically, was also the last time. When I choose to be outside, turn blue from the cold, lose feeling in my toes and nose, I will do it the old fashioned way, with a line and pole and large hole in the ice (and a nice fire on the ice and a pot of chili bubbling away, and yeah, there just might be something other than cocoa in my thermos of hot chocolate...just saying...).

When the kids were younger they would take shovels and skates, it was fun, still is!

So... tomorrow is the Annual Carving of the Bird here in the USA! We don't celebrate Thanksgiving on "the day" choosing to go for the weekend after to allow for more family to come. This also gives the in-laws the chance to have their holiday on "the day" and our kids don't have to pick and choose. Don't get me started on the the uproar over "We should have the holiday day off, so we can spend it with our families". That being said, we at KayeWood.com will be open. I will be here, as I choose to do that so my employees can have the day off if they want it (with no strings attached).

A stunning 3-Dimensional quilt made from dark, medium and light fabrics, that Kaye Wood has simplified with her cutting and sewing techniques. Strip sets are cut into topless triangles and then sewn into rows and joined together. Pieced with absolutely no "Y" seams, you won't believe how easy it goes together. Uses the Starmaker 6 (sold separately).

Another Quilting Cruise....

14 Day Quilting Cruise to Hawaii - Nov 28-Dec 13, 2015, kaye@kayewood.com http://www.kayewood.com/Hawaiian_Quilting_Cruise.pdf

We have 8 balcony cabins left on this quilting cruise. The entire ship is sold out, except for these 8 cabins. The cruise ship wants to take back these cabins, but I said, "We need them for our quilters". We have another month to fill these cabins; then they go back to Carnival so they can sell them to "non-quilters". Get your refundable deposit in asap to Rockport Tours 888-937-3488.


Reader's Show and Tell....

I really enjoyed the class and I am looking forward to using the templates. I have completed the top for Diamonds of Yellowstone using the View & Do Diamonds Shapes today and I have named mine "Diamonds of Kentucky" I need to practice the Y seams but I really think I will get better every time I sew them.

....Stephanie

Send me pictures of your creations and we'll put them here and on our Show and Tell Page.


What is a Fat Quarter....

Thanks to Becky from Patchwork Posse, we now don't have to remember!

I don't know about you, but when it comes to pre-cuts in fabric, or sizes of just regular cuts, my brain goes to mush. I can't remember. I mix them up. Is a fat quarter 18"? 19"?

I usually hold up my hands and think to myself, "It's about that size". Right? You, I am sure, remember them much better than I. You can quickly recall to your sewing buddies the right size. If that's you, then please ignore this post. For the rest of us, I have come up with a solution. A little business card that holds all dimensions. You can stuff it into a pocket in your purse or bag and whip it out when the mind fails you.

Besides all of the 'fat' sizes, fabric now comes in pre-cuts. There are some super fun ones out there, and now there are tiny ones and triangles! Who would have thought that we don't like the cutting method so much and we are going for quick, so these pre cuts are handy and we love them!

Here are all the sizes- just in case you needed to know what is a fat quarter right now

  • Fat quarter 18" X 22"
  • Fat Eighth 9" X 21"
  • Charm Pack 5" X 5"
  • Mini Charms 2 1/2" X 2 1/2"
  • Jelly Roll 2 1/2" X 45" or Width of Fabric
  • Layer Cake 10" X 10"
  • Turnover 6" triangle
  • Honey Bun 1 1/2" X 45" or Width of Fabric
  • One Yard 36" X 45" or Width of fabric
  • Dessert Roll 5" X 45" or Width of fabric
  • Honeycomb Hexagons 6"

Just in case you wanted to know how many squares you can cut from a fat quarter piece - Number of Squares from a Fat Quarter

99 2" squares
56 2 1/2" squares
42 3" squares
30 3 1/2" squares
20 4" squares
16 4 1/2" squares
12 5" squares
12 5 1/2" squares
9 6" squares
6 6 1/2" squares
