Just want everyone to know we will be in Chattanooga TN tomorrow for the AQS show! Bad News…We are NOT going to be in Atlanta for the Original Quilt and Sewing Expo…We are so sorry, but sometimes things happen that are out of our control…so if you are in GA- I guess you are going to have to go to Chattanooga to see us…Nick and Amy are there…Nicks says it is only 100 miles from the Atlanta show location and he wanted me to let everyone know ahead if possible…
Something you might want to pick up at the show…new packaging for wool appliqué needles…We are going to start selling them wholesale to shops and had to change the packaging as the cards were too labor intensive…we will still sell the cards in our store but not to shops. The new packaging comes with 12 needles…6 just aren’t enough for me…tell your local shops to order them from us (primitivegatheringswholesale.com) or Moda will have them too! I don’t have them on the website yet but will soon! I promise I’ll let you know when in case you need some. If you use our #24 chenille needles and can’t live without them…comment on this post and I’ll pick the best ones and send you some! Be truthful…I want real testimonies…not like the fat loss ones.
I am home working on Fall Market, Lakeside Gathering quilts and lots of other stuff…I will be in Gwinnett GA teaching next week, so I am not at the show….I hope the GA girls are ready to have some fun!!!
I posted earlier about my hand quilting project that I was working on…I finished it up the end of August…here it is..all finished! You can kind of see my sewing space at the Lakehouse here…see how close I am to the water? I sew right in the middle of everything…there is no sewing room for me…I love it…I can cook..and quilt at the same time…Nick hates my mess though…I was doing a bunch of cutting and just swooshed it all on the floor, it was all kinds of dog ears and little trimmings and he was like…What’s going on here? I was like..What? but anyway…I love to hand quilt…I get up pretty early…the morning is the best time to think about things, about what I need to accomplish that day and just lose myself in the stitches and you can’t beat the view!….
I also started working on my Modern Building Blocks BOM that is starting at Primitive Gathering in October ….It is a huge adjustment from what I was stitching…Here is one of the blocks…next to…Tackle Box Mini…the Moda Love Blog quilt and the bonus project from the Pieced Block of the Week this summer… The MBB quilt is a blast…I stitched the big block…then I starting sewing and before you know it I had 4 more done! Here is a general idea of the whole quilt. If you want to sign up and stitch these with me we are doing 3 versions…Japanese, Civil War and then the original Modern version…and yes..I am stitching the modern version..just let me get it out of my system and then I will be back to normal…I seen this quilt and spring market…it was awesome! Moda had a green couch with all sizes of pillows made from these blocks on it…I wanted it!!! If someone has a picture of this…send it to me…Here is the quilt on our website if you need to stitch along with me…There are 48 blocks total and it is only $12 buck per month… Modern Building Blocks BOM
Well thats about it for now…What’s everyone stitching on?
