Two Tip Tuesday – the clock strikes midnight

Living in New England we get to experience the Red Soxs in the World Series this year! Of course, that is not mine or my husband’s team but we enjoy watching and routing for “the Soxs”! So, the clock struck midnight right at the end of the game and I’m still up printing and folding getting ready for Quilt Market and Festival in a week and a few days. Thank goodness for friends today to help with the folding and packaging. Another super power of a quilt business owner!
#1 – Quilting friends are the best!! Ask for help….they step up!
The weather here was crazy today. How about hail and a tornado in Rhode Island. The hail came down fast and covered everything. What does this have to do with quilting?  When your quilting friend’s car is in your driveway and it is getting hailed on, yikes!

Hail – October 23, 2018
Plus Fall Colors!

Plus…Looking at the picture, I see a wonderful mix of colors!  I’m all about finding color in nature this October.  I found similar colors in a Tiki Roll by Sew Batik that needs to be cut into!  I have some ideas of what it will be, stay tuned to see what it becomes.  I have found that Sew Batik’s 2 1/2″ strips to be VERY accurate.  But when using pre-cuts, it is always best to double check their measurement.  I’ve had some that are not.

#2 – Double check those 2 1/2″ strips.  Many are accurate, but best to measure to be sure.

Now it is past my bedtime and the ballgame is over.  (BTW, the Sox won game 1!)

in quilting,

    The weather was crazy yesterday. The lightning was so vivid!

    I have a bunch of pictures taken while hiking in NH that I want to use for color inspiration.

  3. No such word as Soxs my friend!

    Go Sox!!
