SBOW Pieced…Week 4

Week 4 already…Where does the time go? Are you keeping up? After this week you will have 48 blocks already!!!IMG_9681

back home…

You probably have figured out that I am home from 5 days of teaching in MN (because I am blogging)…I have met some wonderful ladies and had the pleasure of sharing my knowledge of wool appliqué and embroidery stitches with them…I love MN because they all talk the same way I do…no one comments on “my accent”…Its just like being home…I taught at the Minnesota State Guild and then at Sew Seeds Quilt Co in New Ulm MN…The shop is owned by these 3 lovely ladies pictured here…3-150x150If you live in MN, or near there this is a must stop quilt shop!!! Cindy, Jacking and Ann are the best…the new, just over 1 year shop was gorgeous and if you attend one of their events the food was to die for, its always about the food!  Visit their shop online here: Sewing Seeds Quilt Shop

Here are a few pics from my workshops.  I will be in DesMoines next week…so not a lot of HOME time this time…take care

Do you have EQ7?


My latest fabric line is now on EQ7’s Fabric Library!!!  MODA-HOMESTEAD GATHERINGS

They sell the leading quilt-design software in the world, EQ7. They request samples of new fabric collections from manufacturers, scan and crop them so that they can produce downloadable fabric libraries that their users can color their designs with. Their goal is to show users new fabric, provide them with designer/manufacturer information and hope that they will buy fabric for their quilts!  I know you all have some of this fabric in your collection so now you can design on your computer with it!!!

If you want the information on this, here it is below!

The wool SBOW-finished…Summer Gatherings


I thought It was time to show you the whole quilt!  It is in Chicago at the show right now…and we ONLY have a few more openings left…this summer has been a record number of people doing it…we usually have enough left over to do a BOM with it in October…this will not be the case with this one…if we decide to run it we will have to re-cut kits for it!!! My photo is unquilted…my quilted photo is blurry…so if you want to see the
custom quilting up close an click HERE and visit awesome friend (1st place AQS show winner)Linda’s post about all the quilting on Sunflower Gatherings…

If you are on the fence with signing up this is probably your last chance as the Chicago show just opened up today…and I expect by the end of the show the spots will be full…Click here if you have to have it!!! Sunflower Gatherings

Week 2




This is just an update on the SBOW’s

Shipping has begun and will be finished on Thursday.  The first two weeks are always the longest…We also have about 50 CC declines…If you notice your card has not be charged by FRIDAY, you might be one of them…please call the shop at 920-722-7233 and give us a new number or tell us to run it again…It takes about 4 days to ship them out of PG.  We will start calling on friday about the declines…You know the drill if you have done many of these…if you are NEW to the SBOW…PLEASE, PLEASE…PLEASE be patient…they all do not get shipped out on Monday. We have had a couple of emails and phone calls concerning that we did not charge their card yet and they are worried we didn’t get their order…so again..if this is the case by FRIDAY please let us know.  I love the enthusiasm!!

The VALDANI threads will NOT be shipped this week, They will be shipped next week.  Valdani has shipped us 16 boxes and they take their sweet time coming through customs…so we put off shipping until the majority of the threads arrived.  There may be a few missing from your shipment.  We have notes on your orders what is missing and will ship them as soon as they arrive.  Valdani makes and ships threads every three weeks from Romania.  We needed to order 300 quantities of each color and they can’t produce as fast as we all would like…lol…but remember we WANT you to have those threads as fast as you do.

A couple of ???s on the FREEBIE…they are included in ALL SBOW’s including the pieced one.  They are not in BOM’s as you would only get 3 and the BOMs are a previous commitment….sorry…If you are not in a SBOW you can purchase online each week to get the freebies too.  (min purchase is $16).

Thanks and hope you are excited as I am about these quilts!!!…here are the blocks shipping this week…LB

I will be getting the quilt back today from Linda(Miss AWESOME quilter) and will get the binding on and in the shop for next week!
