QuiltCon Lecture Series from Craftsy

I didn't make it to QuiltCon last month and if you didn't either, you can see what it was like! Craftsy has a series of QuiltCon lectures available through its website for free. If you don't already have a Craftsy account, you just have to signup for one and off to QuiltCon 2013 you can go!

Zakka-Style Potholders

One of my colleagues is getting married, so I needed to make a wedding present. I got "Zakka Style: 24 Projects Stitched with Ease to Give, Use & Enjoy" by Rashida Coleman-Hale earlier this year, but had yet to make any of the projects. One thing I really like about the book is that most of the projects incorporate linen. Linen is a beautiful material that adds texture and depth. In any case, "Zakka Style" had a quilted potholder project that made a great wedding gift.
