Calling all quilters in the central Texas area!!!!
A new quilt shop is in the making! Be sure to stop by Early, TX and find The Quilter's Hideaway. It opens on Saturday, October 3!!! When I can get an address, I will post it, but I have heard it is close to Cousin's Convenience Store on the highway!
One of our members, Carol, had a great program at our last meeting.
She showed us how to do paper piecing, specifically Hexies!
I think I am hooked!
Carol shared a pattern from Mickey Depre's book Pieced Hexies. She also has other books available and they can be found on her website (link is below), amazon.com or other sites on the Internet.
Mickey Depre shared this fabric site on her Facebook page: 5 Bucks a Yard. She discovered
it while she was lecturing in Houston. Apparently, all fabric is $5 per
yard!! I glanced at it and it is brand name fabric like Amy Butler and
Riley Blake. I love their fabric!
If you have Facebook, Mickey Depre has great
information. If that link doesn't work and you have Facebook, search for
MDQuilts and that is her.
I also found her on Pinterest: Mickey Depre. She has some fabulous boards to follow! They are very inspirational! Below is one of the pictures from Pinterest featuring Mickey's patterns!
