Houston Eve….

20111026-200804.jpgIt is the night before I have to leave for Houston Quilt Market and Festival..It is only 8pm and my binding is finished on my Home for the Holidays quilt for Market made with part of my Seasonal Gatherings line that will be shown at market on Saturday!!! This quilt is 64×64 and is a remake of a small little quilt that had 4 1/2″ blocks….This quilt will not be available until the fabric comes in, sometime in April, 2012….I can’t wait to show you more projects using this line of fabric…speaking of which….I need some help…I am calling out any veteran hand appliquer who considers her work to be better than average to stitch a block for a quilt.  My block is shown below…it is about a 22″ block, so big easy applique…If you want to help me out and would like us to send you a block please email me at the following email…primitivegatheringsquiltshop@yahoo.com  and we will send one out to you, I will take the first 12 people…and if I know you….tell me if I have met you at our quilting house or at shows or classes, where ever…… I will not get home from Houston until November 8th and would like them back by the middle of November…Amy will send them out as soon as we get the blocks cut…make sure you send us your address too!!!!!

20111026-200832.jpgI want to say Hi! to all of my students from the Atlanta quilt show and everyone else I met in GA….

Now a little shop info….Due to the volume of internet orders lately we will need up to a week to get them out.  We have hired more people, but it takes time to get them trained and some of my girls are off on vacations also…So please if you place an order do not call after 3 days and ask where your order is????lol….So from now on we need a little more time to process and get your orders out to you.  Just a few more growing pains…that is all…

Hope to see all of my Houston girls at Festival and look forward to hanging out in the Moda booth at Market….Its been a hectic last month and I need to have some FUN!!!!!!!

Later LB

New Stuff!!!!

I now a lot of these quilts are easy…but hey….who wants to cut up that great flannel that looks like wool into little pieces??? Not to mention these quilts can be made in a day! or at least my day….but hey that is what is really so fun about these quilts…so they will be on our site to purchase soon…kits are limited and we will be getting another shipment in of fabric in January, so you might be put a waiting list for your kit…we will have them in Atlanta and hopefully some left for Houston…

Now this picture says more that I ever could about how great these quilts are….here are a few of them…will post more tomorrow…LB
