Where Creativity is Just Plain Fun

Membership is Free!

I have decided to end the Paid Memberships Program and just go with the Points Program. If you are a paid member, you signed up for a lifetime membership and are no longer paying for memberships. I am not really making any money from new memberships so it does not make sense to keep that part of my business going. Instead, membership is going to be point based. I do not plan to change this again. My income will be from sales of Paper Bead Rollers, downloads for people who don't want to be a member, books I publish in the future on Amazon, templates and template bundles, ads on the site and YouTube revenue.

All downloads, that cost points, no matter what level you are at, will now cost 20,000 points each unless otherwise noted on the individual pages.

Just Plain Fun

Daily Update - March 7, 2022

 

I am working on the next Quilt as You Piece Block! I recorded the video on Sunday and hope to edit and upload Monday 3/7. The instructions have been finished, except for the photo of the finished block, for a couple of days. I am not quite done with building my inventory back up but I needed to take a break from that so I can make the next quilt block.

Coming Soon!

Pre Cut Paper Bead Strips. One size for now. More information soon.

What am I Doing?

Quilt as You Piece Block

I am working on a series of Quilt Block Videos done in the Quilt as You Piece method. When I am done, there should be 30 quilt blocks that I will then put together with sashing in between the blocks. I do plan to make a video of putting the quilt together. This is the primary way I make quilts.


The quilt in the photo is the front of the quilt block, the back is the same pattern, just different fabrics. The patterns and materials list are on the site as well, the same day I post the video I make for each block. The very first block, Five Strip Rail Fence is free for everyone, no points needed and no membership needed. Most of the rest of the blocks for this quilt will be for Members. You can get them with points or for $1.99 each or as a Gold member, you will not need to redeem points or pay anything for the PDF files.

Oh My Goodness! I have an Accuquilt Go Big Electric Die cutter! I am now also an affliate for Accuquilt. I have placed Ads for Accuquilt on every page across the site. If you click on them and decide to make a purchase with the links, I do get a small commission from your purchase.

If you are interested in knowing about the Accuquilt die cutting system, you can check it out at this link: Accuquilt Web Site. This is a referral link. If you buy anything at their web site, with this link, you will get 20% off of your purchase and I get a discount as well!

This pillow is fast and easy to make. The 2 pieces will be very wavy before they are stitched together and stuffed so don't be surprised when this happens.

This Week's Tip

Preventing Ink Bleed on Bead Sheets

When you are not sure if the ink on your bead sheets will run, you can treat your paper with 3 thin coats of Krylon's Workable Fixative. Then cut them into strips.
