• Pre-cut fabric packs are immensely popular among quilters; this is

May 2012

the first book to combine two or more pre-cut sizes in one quilt • Perfect for a range of skill levels, with 15+ projects in a variety of

sizes from wall hangings to bed quilts • Projects incorporate techniques not commonly used in pre-cut

quilts like appliqué and paper piecing Instead of being restricted by fabric cut to just one size, readers can mix and match strips, triangles and squares, and will even learn to use fat quarter bundles in new ways by cutting them into standard “precut” sizes. Quilters will learn about coordinating pre-cut bundles in different colorways and from different fabric manufacturers and will explore techniques rarely found in pre-cut quilts, like appliqué and paper piecing. Plus, easy fabric-requirement formulas will enable quilters to combine jelly rolls, layer cakes, turnovers, stash stacks, dessert rolls and more into inventive projects they’ll love.

Making the Horizontal Sashing

Making the Border

15

Measure the length and width of the quilt top through its centre – it should measure approximately 54½in x 68½in. From the seven 2in width of fabric background strips, piece together two strips 68½in in length and two strips 58½in in length (that is, the 54½in measured width plus the width of the vertical borders). If your measurements are different, cut your borders to match your measurements. When sewing the borders to the quilt top, match the middle of the border strip to the middle of the quilt edge. Pin the middle and ends first and then pin in between as necessary. Sew the 68½in strips down the left and right sides of the quilt top and press towards the blocks. Now sew the 58½in lengths across the top and bottom of the quilt top and press towards the blocks.

The row-to-row sashing linking the rows of blocks is made in a similar way to the vertical sashing. Note the link fabrics used in the rows above and below the row of horizontal sashing and then take one or two (depending on whether it’s a half link or whole link) 2½in squares of each of these link fabrics, two 2½in background squares, four 2½in x 4½in background rectangles and three 2½in x 4½in background rectangles. Piece together as shown in the diagram below, pressing towards the link fabrics.

16

Sew all the horizontal sashing strips to the block rows and press towards the block rows. Now sew all the rows together.

Finishing the Quilt

The quilt top is now complete. Prepare the top, wadding (batting) and backing fabric for quilting and quilt as desired. Bind the quilt to finish, following the instructions in Techniques for Binding a Quilt.

This quilt did require a little thought in the placement of the pieces but it went together beautifully much to our delight. We used an American Civil War range Comfort from one of the Collection for a Cause ranges by Howard Marcus and chose a pale grey-blue for the background fabric, which seemed in keeping with the Civil War fabrics. The variation was made by Pam and Nicky Lintott and longarm quilted by The Quilt Room.

Sketch in even lines to represent the pleats. They can be as wide or thin as you want them, just make sure to be consistent.

The inside folds of the pleat will appear shorter than the outer folds. Keep that in mind as you detail. Rough out the locations of the wrinkles created by the movement.

Ink it and clean up your line work, then add some color. The pleats should be clean and fairly wrinkle free, as that is the point of pleating in the first place. But you’ll get some stress wrinkles here and there, particularly where they begin.

12 Common Manga Facial Expressions Japanese artists have found a way of conveying emotions that is fresh, original and instantly readable to people all over the world. Here are twelve facial expressions manga artists use most.

Ecstatic Joy Pull this one out when simple happiness just won’t cut it. The “squeezed shut” eyes are a classic form of manga shorthand for conveying big time happiness. The bottom of the mouth may be left unrendered as a stylistic quirk.

Sadness or Regret The expression is in the eyebrows. They follow a crooked path as they curve toward the center of the forehead. The heavy eyelids and the tiny frown add to the sense of melancholy.

Anger Similar to the look of determination, but with extra crooks on the ends of the eyebrows. The wide open mouth, the bared teeth-- everything comes together to convey her rage.

ALSO AVAILABLE: 978-1-4403-0862-8

Cheerful The default manga facial expression. The smile is subtle with a small, gentle curve. The bottoms of the eyes are often somewhat flattened, suggesting the cheeks rising to cover the eyes just a touch as the character smiles.

Confusion This look of quiet befuddlement is conveyed mainly by the eyebrows. One is angled down as if slightly angry, the other raised as if surprised.

Determination A common emotional state in any action-oriented manga. Make sure you get the angle and proximity of the eyebrows to the upper eyelashes right. The clenched teeth and the break in the line surrounding the mouth are common in manga faces.

Concern This is a great all-purpose expression to use whenever a character is serious or making an argument .The eyebrows are slightly curved, with just a hint of furrowing to the brow.

Distress A manga staple, this look comes out at moments of crisis. The eyebrows curve upward and at least one of them ends in a zig-zag, signifying a furrowed brow. The irises don’t quite touch the upper eyelids, adding to the sense of heightened emotion.

Embarrassment A great one for comedic moments: The character is caught in an awkward position and must talk her way out of it. Combine the apologetic upturned eyebrows with a big smile. Add blush, wideopen eyes, and you’ve got someone going very red in the face. Boredom Flatten the upper eyelashes and tuck the irises at least halfway underneath. The eyebrows float above the eyes at a very neutral angle, and the mouth is small and closed.

Surprise This look is seen again and again in love stories as the character discovers new information. Note the small irises, and how they float within the whiteness of the eyes. The open, gasping mouth also adds to the effect.

Sadness Make the irises large and tuck them well beneath the upper eyelids. Don’t overdo the streaming tear, one or two are plenty. The shape of the mouth suggests a quivering lower lip.

Biology Dracorexus Acadius

The Acadian dragon is the largest dragon species in North America. The female and male live together in a lair on the seashore where the male will be able to hunt for food in the oceans while the female guards the lair and her young from predators. Acadian dragons are extremely long lived because of their hibernation habits. It is believed that a dragon may sleep more than two thirds of its life, slowing its metabolism for months. Older dragons can enter a kind of torpor that can last

Referred to as the “Justin Bieber of blogging” by Forbes, DANNY VITTORE

Back the F*ck Up! is a celebration of 30 creatures great and small that are revered for their coolness, whether for their “don’t give a crap” attitude or being a boozehound. Animals include the vicious cassowary bird, which is capable of delivering a fatal falcon kick to people; the mongoose, which fights snakes just because it wants to; the polar bear, the only animal in the world that actively hunts humans; and the caterpillar, which is a lot more insane than people may think.

is a columnist for Cracked.com. Having written six features for the humor site, Vittore’s “Six Animals That Just Don’t Give a F*ck” was an Internet sensation. His hilarious piece went viral, with 1.5 million views three weeks after it was posted. It now has racked up nearly 2.5 million views and 70,000 Facebook shares. Soon to be a freshman at NYU, he also claims to have wrestled a honey badger and won.

happen, though, because the honey badger is one badass motherfucker. Let’s just start with its name. The honey badger. How did a supposedly badass animal get this ludicrously non-badass name? Well, the answer is the honey badgers attack beehives and eat ... something from there. For many years, people assumed honey, but it turns out, it was actually the larvae, the honey was just an extra little bonus. And let’s get this straight. The honey badger roams Africa. So the bees that the honey badger has to deal with are properly Africanized bees, the most aggressive kind that sting like crazy. The honey badger couldn’t give half a shit. It gets stung so many times by the bees, who are trying to protect their babies, and it just keeps going on like the juggernaut. Contrast this to bears in North America who get scared off (after just trying to steal honey) by puny normal bees. This, dear reader, is merely the tip of the iceberg. Whilst being the same size as a smallish dog, it is more aggressive than an attack dog on crack cocaine. Honey badgers have been known to take on lions, leopards, and all sorts of other large African predators. They have also been known to win a lot, too, but not always, because even monkeys fall out of trees sometimes. Also, when hunting, they literally go to the ends of the earth to get what they want. A honey badger has been filmed climbing a really large tree to get at a king cobra. It troubled itself to get into an even more troubling situation, since it’s not like king cobras are harmless. But the crowning moment of badassery is brought to you by National “We Lie Sometimes” Geographic. A camera crew was following a honey badger known as Kleinman. Kleinman was feeling peckish, as honey badgers are wont to do, and set upon

The Cherries are quickly taken by the birds, and it is more likely that you will be using garden or commercially grown Cherries for your wine.

Cherry Wine A good Cherry Wine is smooth and medium-sweet, light but with full Cherry flavors. The color depends on the type of Cherries used. A blend of fruits can be used, or just one type, and you will need to use more Cherries if all are sweet. You’ll need 1.8 kg (4 lb) sour Cherries or 2.7 kg (6 lb) sweet Cherries 15 ml (3 teaspoons) acid blend 2 Campden tablets, crushed (see Note, page 98) 2.5 ml (½ teaspoon) grape tannin 1.2 kg (2½ lb) sugar 4.5 liters (1 gallon) hot water yeast and nutrient 2.5 ml (½ teaspoon) pectic enzyme powder (5 ml/1 teaspoon for sour Cherries) sugar syrup (optional, see Method) 1 vitamin C tablet, crushed

* * * * * * * * * *

Method 1 Wash the fruit and reject any Cherries that are unsound, or over- or under-ripe. Remove the stems and any leaves. Lightly crush the Cherries in a fermenting bin and add the acid blend, a crushed Campden tablet, and the grape tannin. 2 Stir in the sugar, pour on the hot water, and stir well to dissolve the sugar. 3 Cover and leave to steep for 24 hours. Activate the yeast at the end of this period (see page 35). 4 Add the pectic enzyme powder and yeast, cover, and leave to ferment for about five days, stirring daily and pushing down the Cherries as they rise. 5 Strain off the liquid, pressing the pulp to extract all the juices. Transfer to a demijohn and fit the airlock. Leave in a warm place to ferment for about four months, racking once or twice as the liquid clears. 6 When fermentation has ceased and the wine is clear, add the crushed vitamin C tablet to prevent oxidation and bottle the wine in dark bottles. Cork and label. Store for a year before drinking. 96 FR UIT WINE S

Massive lugs and triangular, full-length ejector rods give Fausti guns exceptional longevity.

From forging to finished part, Fausti steel undergoes many inspections. Final fitting is by hand.

Competitive shooters are familiar with the DT10 stable of trap, skeet and sporting over/unders. In 12 gauge only, they have manual safeties and detachable (DT) triggers. But on a recent visit, I direct my time at Beretta to the company’s new SV10 Perennia O/U. The SV10 is a boxlock with traditional low-profile breeching, trapezoidal monoblock shoulders and double locking lugs. An oversize hinge pin with a new reinforcing shoulder holds up under extended use. “Extractors run the length of the monoblock, so they operate very smoothly,” Luisa points out. “You can choose ejection or extraction.” Machined from a steel billet, the nickel-finished receiver features an arrowhead motif in relief. Like all Beretta shotgun barrels, those

too – although I prefer a manual switch. My first shots with the SV10 Perennia come on an Italian skeet field modified to give shooters of modest ability the illusion that they’re competent. I’m duly grateful. Shooting the SV10 proves a pleasure – in no small part because I’m having a good day, and the clay targets are not. Then too, the shotgun babies my clavicle. Its walnut buttstock features an optional “Kick-Off” mechanism, a pair of hydraulic pistons inside that absorb much of the jolt of firing. There’s noticeably less muzzle climb too. Because claims of “less recoil” abound, I test the Kick-Off device by following target loads in the 7-pound gun with the potent 2.75and 3-inch magnums you might choose for a goose hunt or turkeys. No pain! And

of the SV10 are cold hammer-forged. A thick steel tube is kneaded into a long, slim barrel around a mandrel, by hammers that deliver terrific pressure, 1,800 strikes per minute. They’re joined near the muzzle with silver solder, which also secures the quarter-inch matted rib. Special welds mate the rear of the barrels at the monoblock. Five Optimachoke tubes come with every SV10. They’re steel shot-friendly, as is the chrome-lined bore. The SV10’s trigger has titanium components for fast lock speed. The guard, an elegant steel loop, properly matches the curve of the trigger. The break is clean, consistent and manageable. A transverse button in the safety pad selects the barrel of your choice. It is snappy and refuses to hang up in the middle. The automatic safety works well
