Tip of the June month, 2012

 Just finishing up my Lottie and Georgia quilt for the Asheville Quilt Show this September, www.ashevillequiltguild.org, and discovered I needed more quilting in the border. The best stencils can be made with contact paper so you can just quilt on the edges, release it from the fabric and re stick it onto another segment. It saves using a marking pen. Sometimes I have to make more than one template as the sticky stuff picks up threads but sure works well as it is pliable.
Just one more thing. We have moved the quilt block to a more prominent place of honor on the front of our cottage. It is the same block, Rising Moon Over Magic Mountain, that is used as a watermark on my new web site. Yes, it was designed by Barbara Webster and her husband and is featured on one of the Quilt Trails up in Burnsville, NC   www.quilttrailswnc.org
