I've known Celine Perkins from Perkins Dry Goods for a really long time. One of the things I admire about Celine is that she is an excellent teacher ... and she writes her patterns just like she's in the classroom. They are well thought out and easy to follow. We love her 'just for fun' patterns because they are easy ... and fun ... to make! She also has some terrific block-of-the-month books. We did Mill City Sampler a few years ago and it remains one of my favorites!
Oh ... here's another cool thing Celine has ... the Perfect Piecing Seam Guide. If you have EVER struggled with getting a perfect 1/4", you MUST have one of these in your sewing kit. I often change machines within a project and it's nice to know that my seam allowance is going to be the same on each of them. We always carry some at the store and bring them to the retreats ... have them at the State Fair too ... our goal is to make sure every quilter has one!
Remember what I said about Celine being a great teacher? As today's Minnesota blogger, she's going to have a triangle block demonstration ... I know you'll be refering to it again and again down the road. Don't forget to comment on her blog ... you could be one of three prize winners at the end of the hop!
