This blog will feature different guild members commenting on their favourite quilty subjects and we hope that you will enjoy the variety of opinions expressed.

Palette Builder

Someone on one of my lists posted this link for a palette builder  -called "Palette Builder".

Palette Builder

All you need to do is put up a photo, set the number of colours you want and what kind of colours and it will give you a list. How easy is that??!!

Here is what I did:

This has GOT to be fun!

Natal Quilters Academy

I came across this international site this evening.


A pity I wasn't told about it sooner so that I could have put the link on this blog, shortly after the event.

It's this kind of thing that advertises KZNQG far better than just telling our friends.

Here is a plea: If you know of something quilty going on in your part of Kwazulu Natal, PLEASE let me know.
