Something "new" -

The other day -

My bloggy buddy - Linda J -
life, quilts and a cat too

Did a post  - here -

With a link to a technique -

“Fun and Done” - here -

I had to laugh -

Even though the Bayside Quilting video is dated January 4, 2011 -

I used that technique in a quilt I made in 1995 -

17 years ago!!

And WITHOUT the templates - ;))

Like Linda J said -

"Nothing is ever truly ever new” - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -


  1. I sometimes wonder where I'd be today if I'd marketed my 'techniques'......

    1. Yeah - me, too - but this one wasn't/isn't mine - it was called "Quilt As You Go" back then - guess they just changed the name - ;))

  2. and the rest of my treatise goes "nothing is ever truly
    new, really---fabrics are often inspired by past eras and tools are inspired to make the piecing easier. It is still the same geometric shapes driving it all.

    I made one of the blocks today and really the only part of that template thing that made any sense was the window part so I didn't have to measure on 4 sides of the batting. I could live without it but didn't have to since someone donated the whole shooting match to the quilting club library.

    I still stand my original statement----it has been done. And you others are just using someone else's idea and tweaking it.


I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
