Need a New Quilt Project?

Sometimes we have a project in mind, and not all of us feel confident enough to design one of our own.  I am always looking at new pattern ideas, especially now that I spend a lot of time reading quilting blogs!  In my sidebar you will see a link to a new website, http://www.findaquiltpattern.com/ .  Created by Cindy from CD Designs, this brand new website will be a great resource for patterns for your next quilt project.  I have already seen several I want to try.  Be sure to bookmark the site as the listing of patterns continues to grow.   If you are a designer, you can list your patterns which will link back to your website, increasing traffic.  Everybody wins!

I first found Cindy when I recently started English Paper Piecing, which she teaches on http://www.quiltcampus.net/.  I have always been a big fan of machine piecing to "get it done" but find EPP relaxing and portable, thus enabling me to enjoy the process, not just the outcome.  Here are a couple of pieces I have stitched from scraps so far....





I have some vintage feedsack scraps that I want to try using EPP.  I love the way it looks and its easy to learn!

I am off to the "Big E" Eastern States Exposition in Springfield, MA tomorrow with a good friend of mine.  A girls day out!  I will bring my camera and hopefully have some pictures to share.

Until Next Time....
