Summer Quilt Updates aka Airing My Laundry List

Hello everyone! I thought it was time for a little updating around here. I've been away from flickr, twitter and blogland for a week or so, busy with work and family projects. I've started a whole laundry list of things I want to talk with you about. Time to start getting these posts out of the draft queue and share them.

A new tutorial about matching points in blocks with lots of the little buggers will be appearing shortly. I have a few tips to share about accuracy and pinning that really helped me.

Remember that stack of Hushaby Charms and the Kona Pink I showed you a month ago? I finished the quilt and am putting the finishing touches on another tutorial to share. You can finally take that favorite charm pack you've had FOREVER and turn it into a small baby quilt to give as a gift.

I've created a post highlighting bee blocks I've made for my partners in April and May. With June going by so fast I'll likely add those blocks to the post as well.

A few trips to some recent local quilt shops yielded some great fabric finds. I took pictures while there to post here for you. And, yes, they will take phone orders!!

I've had several folks write to me to say they've tried my pillow tutorial since my last round up. I'll share photos of their creations right here.

I'm also gearing up for another giveaway!

Oh, and I've been cooking up some sweet Moda treats to share in the Fall. I'm sew excited!!

Are you ready? Pull up a chair and spend the Summer with me on the I'm Just A Guy Who Quilts blog!

See you around,
