Many quilters shy away from curved seams but this month's newsletters give you a few tips that make them feel much more achievable! And if you're making Solstice, the 2013 subscriber BOM quilt, you'll need that skill for the block in this month's newsletter (subscriber version only). Plus, check out Jinny's latest collection of "almost solids" -- Venetian Marble.
Please note that the Solstice BOM patterns are accessible only through the emails sent directly to subscribers. To subscribe, enter your email in the box on the left and click GO.
See photos of Jinny's recent trip to Australia and check out her newest fabric collection, Corsica. There are also links to two free quilt projects featuring the Corsica fabrics, and news about the all-new Swatch Wall feature on jinnybeyer.com that lets you play with fabric swatches before you buy! And check out Block #3 in the free 2013 BOM quilt pattern, Solstice.
This month's newsletter includes two ways to celebrate National Quilting Day; information on how to join Jinny in Indiia in January 2014; a link to the latest block pattern in our BOM quilt, Solstice; and a visit to the Solstice Classroom where all quilters can learn how to incorporate Jinny's soft-edge piecing technique in their quilts.
Jinny launches her 2013 BOM quilt Solstice in this issue, with free patterns for the first two blocks. Only subscribers have access to the free materials. Everyone can become a better quiltmaker, however, by spending a little time in the Solstice sewing classroom. Jinny has collected videos and reference information on techniques used in the quilt.
In this issue, Jinny wraps up the 2012 BOM quilt patterns and introduces the 2013 quilt, Solstice. Each month, newsletter subscribers will receive free block patterns for the quilt. She also releases a brand-new quilting tool (her Perfect Cut 60° Diamond Ruler), a video on her hybrid appliqué/patchwork technique called Soft-Edge Piecing, announces a new fabric collection quilt kit and free pattern, and much more!
