What I Learned Yesterday and the Day Before

September 30, 2011

While visiting today's Fall Theme AccuQuilt Blog Hop host I learned:

Polly's little cutie - Yogi

While at Aunt Polly's Porch blog post:
  • Polly suggests using Grip It Shelf and Drawer Liner to keep your GO! from slipping while you're using it.
  • A great tip to help with removing the paper backing off the fusible you used for the applique pieces you cut out.
"Score the paper on the back of each leaf/acorn with a sharp pin then, slightly fold it on that scored line and slide your fingernail under the scored edge and the paper can then be easily peeled off leaving the cut edges intact."
  • My new mantra.

While visiting yesterday's Fall Theme AccuQuilt Blog Hop hosts I learned:

Connie's little cutie - Cricket (Simon was sleeping)

At Connie's Quilting by the River blog post:
  • There is a wonderful tutorial for making a Maple Leaf Centerpiece.  It's beautiful!
  • She is also having a giveaway that you won't be able to resist - go check it out.
A complete kit to make your own Maple Leaf Centerpiece which includes the blocks, cluny lace, AccuQuilt die cut Maple leaves, Warm & Natural batting and a backing. You just have to supply the thread.  I'll even add a couple pumpkins and other goodies!
