Hi Quilters!

Today at the Cabin....

Hunting season is over and yes, we did get our venison. LOVE VENISON! Put a bunch in the smoker and made the best jerky you've ever tasted, and also made some summer sausage, all that along with the very yummy steaks and roasts!


We had snow, and then we didn't. And then we did and in a very strange occurence, it all melted. In December. In Northern Michigan. It was warm (ish). I was out doing my chores in my t-shirt. And then it rained. Wait! What??? I know, right? (I have teenaged grandkids, I know all the current slang!)

And last night it snowed again. I'd love to say that this time it will stay until probably April, but I've done that before and look where it got me. Besides, my motto is, "If it's too cold and icy to ride my bike, it might as well snow". Well, the "powers that be" finally drew my card and have turned a listening ear to my lack of bike riding weather plight. Supposed to go skiiing with the grandkids this weekend, sure hope we get more!

So the tree is decorated, my Santas are all out, my Snowmen are congregated under the tree and now it's time to set up the various room displays.... LOVE Christmas decorating!

DVD of the Week....

Windmill Quilt Technique by Kaye Wood

Unlike ordinary windmill quilts, Kaye Wood's simplified techniques put a new spin on this pattern to make this project a breeze. Beginners will find it easier by adding sashing strips. For the more adventurous, go without the sashing.

Sizes: Baby, Twin, Double, Queen, King

Uses the Starmaker 5 (sold separately).

On Our SALE Page!

Windmill Pattern is on sale HERE

Another Quilting Cruise....

14 Day Quilting Cruise to Hawaii - Nov 28-Dec 13, 2015

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 just finished this quilt in time for my grandson's 10th birthday.


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

FR** E-Pattern for December 2014....

Morning Glory


This is the perfect pattern to use those beautiful florals you have stashed away! It couldn't be easier by using bias tubes to create half square triangles, with no paper grids and no wasted fabric. Borders are a breeze to miter with step-by-step directions. Uses the Starmaker 8 (sold separately).

Sizes: Twin, Double, King

The Yo-Yo quilt was a popular style of quilt making in America from the 1920-40s. Yo-Yos, or tiny circles of fabric, were gathered up at the edges and sewn together to create a three-dimensional effect. Yo-Yo quilts were popular because women could carry the little circles of fabric with them and make Yo-Yos whenever they had a free moment.

This amazing article shows lots of different ways to assemble Yo Yo's. From a Double Wedding Ring design, to fans and even sunbursts. These are way more versatile than you thought. There's even a tutorial on original ways to make your Yo Yo's.

Galaxy Quilt Pattern....

by Kaye Wood

Galaxy! Imagine stars floating around a fabric galaxy. Imagine this quilt easy enough for beginners - thanks to Kaye's techniques. Find an interesting print (swirls, dots, stars, sky batiks, etc.) for the background of this quilt. Make the large pieced stars in the galaxy from the same fabrics or from a variety of fabrics for a scrap look.

Cut each star point from two different fabrics, using stripped tubes cut with the Starmaker 6, then arranged into 6-pointed stars inside hexagons. No Problem - this happens automatically. These hexagons are then faced, turned right side out, scattered throughout the galaxy and ready to be machine appliqued to the background.
