As I had said last week, for the month of December I will be having some wonderful friends sharing there very own Technique Tutorial's with us. Last week Christa from ChristaQuilts introduced Paper Piecing in part 1 of her tutorial, today she has part 2 of the tutorial which you can read about here.
Today I am excited to welcome Kelly Smith fromLive.Love.Create ( I met Kelly here at Pile O' Fabric we have been following each other for months now and It has been a real joy getting to know her. Every other Tuesday Kelly has a blog series called Terrific Tool Tuesday, in which she reviews different quilting tools. I have found this very informative. I have a slight obsession with different quilting tools, and her reviews can definitely help you choose the right ones.

Kelly wrote a really awesome tutorial for us today which actually uses one of the tools from her series. She will be showing us how to make her "Getting Ziggy with It" quilt block. This would be a perfect block for a bee to do and would make such a beautiful quilt! So today head on over to Live.Love.Create to learn how to make perfect half square triangles with Kelly Smith!
