Brens Block Bash Day 1&2

Happy New Year everyone. Yes I'm a day late making a block so now I need to catch up.
Brens Block Bash will be a daily posting in which I make at least one block. But for me it is like potato chips, I can't make just one. So look out here I come.

Todays tip sites.
Bonnie Hunter is a great quilter, designed and mystery quilt designer. Here is her blog site.
She has great tips on her site check out this one about basic rotary cutting. I learned something important here on how to place my ruler when cutting.

Also another site Quilting About Home.   Has Free Quilt patters, free block patterns and lots of how to tips.
Also ten tips every quilter should know about your quilting.
Craftsy  - has free quilting classes they are great.

As time goes by you will all find out that I have been quilting for 15 years or more and still have trouble making blocks and  pieces match up. That is why I mostly do art quilts. Or  patterns that do not have to match up. But since many of you are new and need to learn. I'll post tip sites so you can learn the correct way to do thing. And then I'll show you my attempts. Get ready to laugh along with me.

So here we go. Let's have some simple fun. And I hope my expert friends will add advice and web sites too.
