Friday Favorites

Here is a woman after my own heart making layered pieces using dupioni silk, organza, rust, and cutting away (I bought a new heat tool to do that with organza!  Woooo Hoooo!)  I love the piece of quilt she shows us here . The link on that bottom of the blog brought me to this post.  I have tried sashiko but, silly me, I followed patterns and was not too impressed with the results.  WHAT WAS I THINKING!  I gotta try it again.

Terry, bless you for telling me how to be organized.  Have I mentioned that I am not organized? Even the thought of getting organized makes my throat constrict and my breath become high and shallow.  Maybe I am even a bit nauseous.  Okay, I am trying to get that in control because I understand that some level of organization will be required to start entering my art into art shows beyond my local quilt guild. Terry shares with us what she has learned that works.

Tutorials I visited this week. 
Straight line quilting
Wonky Log Cabin
Making your own spray starch (I tried it this week.  It works well but can leave white spots from the corn starch on your dark fabrics)
Pieced Scrap border (a reverse of the crumbs quilt from last week)
gelatin monoprinting  No recipes but you can get them elsewhere.
Quilt label
