Episode 30 Show Notes: Tutorial Round-Up

Here's my first try at making Cathedral Windows:

Looks so much better when you follow the tutorial's directions(below) and fold down the edges before you start folding.  See the top right corner of photo below -- that's the step I skipped at first.

Here's a shot of one of my UFOs in progress of becoming a FO - it's an Amy Butler project that I started, and then put on hold.  It will be a crib quilt when it's all done.

Tutorial Round Up:

Finally, here are some photos of my studio that show how I'm using my thrifted kitchen finds to organize.  I like that the stuff inside doesn't show, and I get to enjoy my favorite goodies.

I enjoy listening to your podcast and reading your blog. Just wanted to drop a line to let you know that I find a lot of great tutorials at One Pretty Thing. She searches the web for tutorials and publishes a daily listing of some great ones.

Hi Jean, I love cathedral windows I've made 2 totes in different sizes all pieced by hand and they are so cute!! I sell a pattern of mine with these little windows lined in silks... Maybe we could do a group sponsorship together and I can possibly put one of my kits up to win?? What do you think? Email me.
