2011 Spring Summer Newsletter

2011 MAY CalendarWINTER NEWSLETTER   Click to view our newest newsletter!

Hey everyone…I think I have recovered from my near “breakdown”, THANK YOU to those who offered me help…I am going to use you in the future….  The “to do” list is getting a little smaller…one being this newsletter being finished…I hope you enjoy what we have to offer for the Summer of 2011.  Join in the fun of the Summer BOW’s, yes that was plural….we decided to do a “scrappy” pieced BOW and not leave out those who do not applique or are allergic to wool…(thank God that is not me)…we also are hosting a Charm Swap, Joyce  Allendorf has given us her best swapping secrets which we appreciate …and don’t forget this…with a $10 purchase each week during the summer you qualify for a “freebie”.  I am not going to post them like I did last year…they will be a mystery…so trust me…they will be COOL!  Why am I telling you all of this????…READ THE NEWSLETTER ABOVE!   Judie will have all of this information on our site by Monday….so you can start to sign up!

So back to that LIST:

write the charm swap patterns

pack for Paducah

draw BOW

draw Freebies

work on Jules new designs…for Market

finish writing the patterns for the Moda Fabric Quilts

wool applique stitch “Little Tulip Crossing…and stitch Surrounded the 18” wool/applique-small piecing workshop quilt for Primitives of the Midwest….

and I still want to design at least 2 tablemats for market…hmmm that is going to be close…might have them done, but the patterns probably will not be ready in time for Market…oh well they can wait a bit!

Hand quilt “Wool Tulip Crossing”  this is an all wool quilt that I just had to do…it will be a pattern at market…This quilt was so easy….much easier than the little one..I am “big stitch” quilting it…here are some photos below…talk to you soon…LB

    Is the free pattern for the triangle thread catchers still available? I saw a YouTube tutorial using it and it was really cute. I’d like to try it!
