How the Institutional Racism of Yesterday Still Reverberates Today
Shout out to my quilters! I know you are out there, pressing your seams and chain-piecing your squares, sashing, tying, and binding like maniacs. I've got a special treat for you today. Do you know about the Missouri Quilt Company? Missouri is really far away from Portland, but with the power of the internet it is so close.
Two things make Missouri Quilt Co. a website every quilter should check every day.
First, the Quilter's Daily Deal.
There's a new deal every day, with savings from 30-100% on fabric and tools. Mostly, they offer discounted pre-cut fabric like Charm Packs, Layer Cakes, Honeybuns, Jelly Rolls....I'm hungry. It will save you money, simplify your life, and probably inspire you to finish those projects you've had hiding in the bottom drawer for ages.
And next, there is the MSQC Tutorials. This section of the website offers video and text tutorials in quilting techniques, fun projects, and handy products. I've found them to be the best free video tutorials out there, plus the kind women of MSQC are absolutely adorable, like I want them to adopt me. Look, Jenny wants to teach you how to make your own ironing board.
