Hey Everyone!!…I hope you are all doing well…
First of all I want to say I am sorry for not getting this out to you sooner…but I think I am “super woman” and can make a bunch of mini quilts for market in two weeks or so…well you know if that is all that had to be done, that might be doable…but when you are teaching/traveling, and running a couple of shops and so on…it’s killer… we leave for Spring Quilt Market today in Minneapolis…and whatever is done is done…and the rest will be overnighted to hotels…for bindings to be added!!! It will all turn out fine and then we can relax…well sort of…but that is how my life goes…
Here is a peek at the wool on cotton version…Somewhere In Time…It will be 16 blocks with appliquéd sashing and the row sashings will be appliquéd as well…and then there is a border too! This can all be coming to you in the 15 weeks of summer. The finishing part is built right in and you will be getting a block and a sashing for the first 12 weeks and then..just two blocks for two weeks and then the 15th week the long sashing and borders will complete the kit…The only piecing is the blocks and the sashings together and then the borders…so super simple piecing…but…LOTS of WOOL APPLIQUE!!! The fabrics are from my Miniature Gatherings backgrounds…the wools are beautiful hand dyes…including a new red…Grand Hotel red that was specifically dyed to match THE red used in all the decorating at the famous Grand Hotel on Mackinack Island MI…This SBOW will cost considerably less than last years…If you need all the specifics they are in Jess’s shop post here….DETAILS I can’t even think about trying to list all those numbers and things now…but Jess has everything here you will need…she’s thought of everything for you.
The fabrics will be amazing!!! and it will be big..90 some by 106 ish(sorry can’t remember)…or you can make 2 lap sized quilts…each week you will make 10 blocks for a total of 156…18 or so HST’s for the inner border and see those little square in a squares you will make 9…those are sashing cornerstones!!! Scrappy heaven!!! Again…here are ALL the details…DETAILS
and all of the signups can be found HERE…on our site under NEW..
There are going to be lots of things coming up…Grand Opening in June at the CA store…details soon…(PS Linda from The Quilted Pineapple will be teaching her wicked amazing machine quilting skills!)
Some new Spring Market items are now on our site for pre-order in September….and a HUGE announcement regarding shipping costs on both our websites CA and WI..
This is what I finished up… quilted…sleeved and machine applied binding to…now let the hand binding on the way to MN begin!!! These cuties are going to Mini-apolis for a Mini Quilt Show in our booth…they will all be in a spiral bound booklet called Little Gatherings!!! with at least 12 minis…maybe more..depending on how many pages we have to fill up!!! These quilts are real miniature quilts…The tree block is 6″…so you can tell that everything else is small..But you can do it with my new Creative Grid rulers and our Triangle Papers and this new book! You can pre order HERE!!! for an August delivery…Fabric ships in September… Until next time…LB
