Wow – we have a lot for you this issue!  Several FREE quilt patterns; an oversize messenger bag; EQ7 Dresden Plate lesson. 


Michele Muska and Darlene Zimmerman teamed up to teach us The Yin and Yang of Quilting: Using Traditional Tools for Modern Quilts, featuring EZ Quilting templates from Simplicity. Darlene took it a step farther and created a Hexagon Table Runner just for us! Click on the photo for the download:

Michele created an auction quilt for the Quilt Alliance, Ring of Fire. She states: “I am on the board of the non profit Quilt Alliance. This 20″-square quilt is my auction donation for the 2013 fundraiser on eBay in November where over 100 quilts are auctioned in 3 weeks. The Dresden happens to be my very favorite quilt pattern and since this one is an 18-degree wedge it takes 20 of them to make a full plate! Perfect, right?” Click the photo to read the Quilt Alliance story and get the free pattern!
