the start of a mess
It kind of cracks me up that yesterday's photo of the sewing room makes me look organized! What you don't know is that one of the reasons I got the room in the first place is because I am such a messy crafter. We had to make a room where we could shut out dogs and babies, because otherwise it wasn't safe! There will be piles of fabric and pins all over the place soon enough.
I've got 2 months of bees to catch up on, so I started with a couple of the easier ones. Once they get a good pressing, they're off in the mail! Next up is an airplane block, followed by a liberated basket and flying geese! Should be fun. And challenging.
I'm seeking out one more permission before I can feel good about posting the cathedral window tutorial. I'm curious since this is my first tutorial-- what steps do you take to make sure that the information you share is not copyrighted and published? I haven't seen the book that teaches how to make this block, and will not be making any money off of this tutorial obviously. Does a variation on techniques make it okay, even if the finished product is very similar? I see so many tutorials that turn out blocks that must be published in quilting books simply because they're so common. Anyway, I don't want to step on any toes. But I want to share what I've learned. Any guidance and experience you have would be great!
