Quilt weights - Building Blocks Tuesday

Sorry, I am late.  Clearly vacation is already having its effect - I forgot what day it was!

Tired of your quilt getting away from you while you are quilting?  Perhaps it falls off the back of the table and pulls the quilt out of place.  Well, then Quilt Weights are for YOU!

Quilt weight

You've heard of pie weights, right?  You put them in your pie crusts to make them stay put in the pie pan and not puff up.  Quilt Weights work in a similar way, holding a section of your quilt in place on your quilting table.

Quilt Weights are multi-functional.  They are excellent quilt testers, can contribute added warmth to quilts while on your bed, not to mention the added "batting" of shed hair!  They are also good for other crafts.  Perhaps you are into crochet or knitting, well!  Quilt weights are also notorious for redistributing your yarns and threads!

Don't you want one?  Don't you need one?

Is there a problem?

A very special Quilt Weight, similar to the one above, can be yours for a nominal fee at your local animal shelter.  Go get one today!

I have no new blocks to show you today, but I am interested in what you have been making.  So what have you been working on this week?  I want to know!

Link up your fabulous blocks.  You put a lot of hard work into them - show them off!  This free linky will stay open for a whole week.

Rules:

1) Please link up only to the page in your blog showing your wonderful blocks, not just the blog homepage.  Flickr pictures are also OK.
2) Make sure to put your blog name as the description so people know where they are going or the name of your block!
3) Please grab my button and post it in your blog post or sidebar.
4) Visit other linky participants!

Thanks for reading!

I LOVE comments, they make my day! Most of the time I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

When I respond, I usually do it via email. Sometimes Google makes this easy and sometimes it doesn't. I usually only reply when it is easy. Just sayin.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
