Christmas Gift Boxes to Wrap up your Christmas Wrapping! Day 12 of the Blog Post Challenge

Gift Boxes made with Leaves Glaore

One of the things I love to do around the holidays is to make gifts for people in my life who would not normally expect a gift.  Last year I made Bowl Cozies for the 26 employees at my local coffee shop!  Why, you ask?  There are five or six women who work there that make my coffee for me and my husband every morning.  They don't even ask, they just make my coffee when they see me waiting in line.  Some days we are chatty, some days I am not so friendly.  Remember, it is morning and I haven't yet had my coffee! 

Hand Applique using the Leaves Galore Templates

Leaves prepared for hand applique

Last November, I was able to spend some time with Rosa Rojas at the Pinwheels Quilt Show in Sturbridge, MA.  Rosa is a native of Spain, but travels frequently to the US, Mexico and France to promote her Apliquick techniques and products. 

Appliqué Tip of the Week: Watch YouTube for a refresher course on SPD techniques

YouTube videos

A recent visitor to the booth made us smile when she said "I've watched your videos so many times, they talk back to me - 'not you again'".  

That is exactly why I made the videos - so you can watch and learn - as many times as you need. You can access the videos from my website or directly in YouTube by searching on "Sue Pelland Designs".

Next stop – Syracuse, NY – AQS Quilt Week July 27-30

Who else is going to AQS Quilt Week in Syracuse?  Joanne and I will be in booth # 1821 with all our Sue Pelland Designs products.  We do demos all day long so stop by and learn about the Leaves Galore and Hearts and More templates.  Even if you’ve seen our demos before, we are always adding new tips and techniques to our talk so it is worth a stop.

Teaching at MQX

Registration for my class at MQX has just opened.  I hope you will come to Providence and meet me, while learning some new Leaves Galore Techniques! I have put MQX on my calendar, so look there for details on how to register for this class.  Look at my pictures from classes and lectures to see what other people have accomplished in this fun class!  Here is the listing from MQX. _

New Leaves Galore Video

Here is part two of the Leaves Galore Video. This edition will help you cut those "S" shaped and "Z" shaped curves featured in the Christmas Ribbons pattern. Just because Christmas day is over, don't fret! The Christmas ribbons pattern looks wonderful in other colors as well. I have a beautiful pink quilt at the end of the video that would make a wonderful baby quilt, and my friend Susan Arena made this quilt in greens and gold with a sunflower theme. I will upload a photo of the sunflower quilt for all of you to see, it is a beauty!
