I have decided to end the Paid Memberships Program and just go with the Points Program. If you are a paid member, you signed up for a lifetime membership and are no longer paying for memberships. I am not really making any money from new memberships so it does not make sense to keep that part of my business going. Instead, membership is going to be point based. I do not plan to change this again. My income will be from sales of Paper Bead Rollers, downloads for people who don't want to be a member, books I publish in the future on Amazon, templates and template bundles, ads on the site and YouTube revenue.
All downloads, that cost points, no matter what level you are at, will now cost 20,000 points each unless otherwise noted on the individual pages.

Daily Update - March 8, 2022
I am working on the next Quilt as You Piece Block! I recorded the video on Sunday and hope to edit and upload Monday 3/7. The instructions have been finished, except for the photo of the finished block, for a couple of days. I am not quite done with building my inventory back up but I needed to take a break from that so I can make the next quilt block.
Pre Cut Paper Bead Strips. One size for now. More information soon.
What am I Doing?
I am working on a series of Quilt Block Videos done in the Quilt as You Piece method. When I am done, there should be 30 quilt blocks that I will then put together with sashing in between the blocks. I do plan to make a video of putting the quilt together. This is the primary way I make quilts.
The photo is the front of the quilt block, the back is the same pattern, just different fabrics. The patterns and materials list are on the site as well, the same day I post the video I make for each block. The very first block, Five Strip Rail Fence is free for everyone, no points needed and no membership needed. Most of the rest of the blocks for this quilt will be for Members. You can get them with points or for $1.99 each or as a Gold member, you will not need to redeem points or pay anything for the PDF files.

This pattern is Free on March 8th only.
This afghan is made with a new pattern stitch I thought I developed. I call it chain links. But it is actually called trellis stitch. Priscilla Hewitt came up with this stitch pattern before I did. I just did not know it until after I posted this new pattern. This afghan takes time to make so if you need an afghan in a hurry, you should consider another design. But if you have plenty of time before the baby is due, go ahead and make this one. It is well worth the time and effort it takes. Also it is suitable for either a boy or girl depending on the colors you use.
You can make a great little dry erase board by simply laminating a plain white piece of card stock! You can decorate it first if you like. I keep one next to my desk when I want to jot down something I need to remember for the day.
