So there I was, during my staycation (see previous post and the rest of this one), busily piecing my Shake, Rattle, and Roll (I’m doing Rattle), when I hear a voice say “I hear you’re struggling with the quilt!”
Huhhhh??? There was no one here but me and the cats, and this wasn’t one of the cats. (I recognize their voices!)
So she continues, saying that she’s Sandy, and she’s here to help me, with her one-step program to break the quilt habit! Well, I don’t know about you, but to me those are fighting words!!
Then she says “Quilt is towel-speak for air!” What the…?
Imagine my relief when I look up and see a gal with “quilted” paper towels! Those people never understood what “quilted” means anyway! (Remember when the commercials for “quilted” paper towels had a group of ladies around the table quilting… with knitting needles?!)
She ends up with “Try Viva, and Quit the Quilt!” Nope, definitely not my idea of a good commercial. Be still my heart!
Then I lit into my Triple ExpressO Shake, Rattle and Roll, (59284) making lots of notes to share tips. Probably my favorite tip is to make the flying geese units larger, and trim them with the Wing Clipper (48109) to have them exactly the right size! This is my first version, and I have the pieces cut to start my second one.

Do you know that you can see what’s new at Erica’s almost every day?? Cheryl does a great job of updating that page every time she adds something. Sometimes it’s brand new fabric, books, tools, accessories or yarn, and sometimes it’s what just went up on our Rummage Page or Bargain Ends of Bolts. Sometimes it’s something that we expect in soon that you can preorder. Any page of our website has a column on the left that tells you where to find things, and all you have to do is look for “What’s New” in purple, and click to find out! Many people have told us they bookmark that page, so they’re always up to date!
