Friday Favorites

 Friday Favorites

Looking for a challenge for 2012?  Judy at Patchwork Times has a color palette challenge  you can participate in.  I haven't decided if I am going to participate.  Generally I like to do challenges because they give me a schedule and a deadline--something my disorganization  needs.  And this challenge is particularly interesting because it is based only on a color palette.  That means if I am working with  a particular motif, I can still do my motif!

Who knew you could cure a self-healing cutting mat that no longer self-healed??  Take a look at these simple directions.

Do you like on-line quilting magazines?  Here is where you can subscribe to three that are free.

Lin at Arty Blobs gives you a link to a free download on making rolling stamps.  I have long admired her rollling stamps and have more than once linked you to her blog in my Friday Favorites.  You bet that I have downloaded her article in Cloth Paper Scissors.

I have found a new blog that I enjoy, Scrap Wisdom Collage.  She uses thermofax screens, TAP, digital manipulation and printing, and other fun techniques to print fabric.  Check her out.

Alisa Burke has a great post that shows a finished piece on her wall and then she explains how she painted, printed text, and stretched the text on frames to create the piece.  I think it is a great piece.  I don't think there is any quilting done on it but then you could add some if you want it.  I think it is successful without it.

Next post will be my 300th post and I have a surprise for you.  Stay tune!
