A first-time sponsor: Aiming for Accuracy!


I bet that many of you already know our special sponsor today! Michele Foster (aka Mishka) is a long time supporter of the quilting community, with her Quilting Gallery.

She specializes in designing quilting pattern and skill building booklets that are easy to understand and follow. Michele has something for everyone: pieced patterns, applique, and paper pieced, too! Aiming for Accuracy is the name of her company, and I hope you will click on the link to see all the inspiring designs!



Aiming For Accuracy is offering a wonderful Quilt Along opportunity that you will want to click through and see.....it may be that you'd like to join in! Here is what Michele says about the quilt:
Each block in the quilt has been chosen for it’s learning potential. Blocks range both in size and complexity. At the end of the quilt-along, you’ll be confident in your ability to make half-square, quarter-square and split-quarter-square triangles, as well as, square-in-a-square, flying geese, fusible appliqué and English paper pieced units.
What else will you learn as you quilt along?  How to quilt in stages, so that you can easily complete the quilting on your domestic machine, how to avoid chopping off your triangle points when applying sashings or joining blocks. Been there, done that, need this instruction! (Grin)

Loads of free quilt block tutorials can be found on her site, like this lovely one that she just released:


Another free tutorial is called "Milo's Star."

And here is Milo! (In his before and after photos!) Isn't he adorable? Looks like he is all dolled up and ready for our Pets Show!



Something that I really appreciate on her site is that all of her patterns are labeled as to their complexity....in other words, how "veteran" a quilter you should be for each one! Patterns carry suggestions such as "Beginner," "Confident Beginner," "Intermediate," and more.


I'm excited about her newest online venture: I Love Buttons, Etc! And I mean fun and unusual buttons! And thread clips, and scissors, and quilting-themed charms, and more cool buttons!

Check these out!



I really like these cute owl cases....I think they would make great business card holders for those of us who still need to have "that other life" that makes money for our quilting addiction, er, hobby!


Michele would love for you to stop by at all of her interwebs homes: just click on these links to be whisked away through cyberspace to say "hello!"

One lucky winner in our drawings will be able to choose FIVE button packs to receive from Michele's online store! So much fun!! This winner will need to reside in the US or Canada.

Thanks, Michele, for sponsoring a prize!
