  1. Here is a technique for making HSTs that will prevent you from having to deal with the bias and net you 8 HSTs at a time: http://artquiltmaker.com/blog/2011/09/jo-morton-triangle-technique.

    Also, I am sorry I didn’t send you the tutorial that I posted about making the LeMoyne Star. I didn’t realize you wouldn’t see it and that you were only using that drawing/chart I sent. See the tutorial at: http://artquiltmaker.com/blog/2011/10/tutorial-lemoyne-star/ I made it just for you. 😉

    I am not sure you have people telling you what to do very often which is why you think I am such a mean teacher and a taskmaster. 😉

    Curves or Applique’ next?

  2. Love the pinwheels! On decorating your living room- decorating always frightened me until I thought of a room as a quilt. Worked like a charm for me! I too love how quilting has made its way into other aspects of my life….

  3. Love the pinwheels. I like your idea of grouping the colors a bit like a sunset. I tend to like quilts that blend the colors like that. One of Jaye’s FOTY quilts was like that and I think it looks very artistic. Don’t you love it when you are inspired and a quilt comes together quickly? Sort of being in the zone.

    Lol-we probably do like a lot of the same movies, I’ll have to think on that one. One thing that I did put in the nexflix cue is Gosford Park- since it was written by Julian Fellows. I also need to make time for Wives and Daughters. Berkely Square is fabulous too.

    Have a lovely week- still waiting for pictures of the quilting on Stormy Weather…

  4. I love the way you’re arranging those pinwheels! Thank you, Thank you for the podcast.

    I heard Jaye on Mark Lipinski again today as a call in. She is awesome – a good speaker. Are you working on her to do a podcast??? I’m off to check out her blog and specifically the pinwheel technique. Tami In Denver

  5. Hi Frances, me again. Love, love, love your pinwheels!! This is going to be a gorgeous quilt. I think every pattern looks great in a batik. Still catching up and I just heard that one of your listeners is listening while longarming. Funny cause that’s exactly what I’m doing! I got this machine last summer and whenever I work on it, I listen to all my podcasts. So about a months worth of yours in one fell swoop. Love your podcast Frances!!

  6. Wait, I forgot to say how much I *love* the fabrics in your lemoyne star! Love the little critters in the corner!
