A Learn to Quilt Tutorial

As I get ready to launch my new website Simplequiltmaking.com, I have decided to offer a tutorial on my blogsite http://quiltingwithjanet.blogspot.com
I have just posted the next part of this tutorial which you can follow through all the steps to make my original design: Sea Creatures. In it I show the joys of handquilting, one of which is total accuracy the first time, every time - check it out - I am eager to see your comments and will answer questions for you.
Working very hard just now on several commissions and also on a small vintage quilt kit I am handquilting.

Hi thanks for stopping by at my blogg.The answer to you question is: yes it a tea Cosy. The pattern for this is not easy. Instead of measure in inch they have drawn the pattern on squarepaper and you would have to make the pattern yourself. I have to think twice before i start on this one.
I known everything about Canadien winther, I have been living in Sudbury /Ontario for 6 mounth frome Feb to Juli in 1991.
I loved my stay but 20-25 celcius is a bit to cold for me. ( I dont know fahrenheit very well). Just now my husband are in Montreal, he is working for a Canadien nickelmine company, though he just visiting this time..
Be happy in Quiltland!
