I love the morning glory shape and design it forms so I thought this would make a great quilting design.

How to scale and crop an image

So I know you are wondering where today's block design is. I did have it planned but unfortunately my iron died :( and you know you just cannot make a block without an iron, so instead I made a tutorial on how to take your block image and scale and crop it. You'll need to know this for uploading your own pictures into the Academy of Quilting.

This is the last Sunday in July. You should now have a completed challenge piece. I finished mine a little later than expected. Sometimes I just do not know where the time disappears to!

I love the design in paua shells. Paua is the Maori name given to a species of large edible sea molluscs, otherwise known as Abalone. The photo I am using today is not actually a paua shell but a garden ornament that represents a paua shell.

One of the first classes I taught on my first trip to America was "Poppy Fields" which is a pattern Jan Blanchet designed. That was way back in 2002 and it is still a popular pattern today.
