Today Spring Quilt Market opens!!!! This is a big deal for those of us in business in the quilting world…We get to talk to the shop owners and share our designs and products, we also get to find new and exciting stuff for our shops to keep our stores fresh and full of ideas when you come in or see us at a show…so it’s a big deal…and it all starts today!!! I will take lots of pics in the next couple of days…for future posts…
and Wow…I have had a super busy first 6 months of the year and my schedule slows way down from here…I started the summer BOWs real early this year but somehow…I had just enough done to show you what my offerings are for the summer. Now I have a time to talk about them…they are all up on our website and I thank you for those of you who have already signed up and tested our new system…The Summer BOW is for our loyal customers who have to do a summer project for the fun, for the excitement of getting something in the weekly mail other than bills and for the FREEBIE…Not only is the SBOW at special price you also get an extra project for participating in our summer event! It all starts June 5th!!!!
I’m super excited about the freebie this year…the “theme” will be HOUSES!!! Who doesn’t love little houses…The freebies are made from the scraps leftover from making kits…so you may not always have the same background…but it will always be something nice…This block is 4″ finished..Now that I have seduced you with the freebie…here are our projects…We have 3 for you to choose from or you can do more than one…I am always amazed how much you can get done and share in our groups….some do all three and amazingly finish them in Olympic record time…
Wool Applique…I am taking into consideration that most of you do NOT have all the SBOWs finished that you have….so why not do some easy piecing and a little appliqué??? That’s the plan this year…I myself need a bit of a break so it’s very simple appliqué….AND maybe you want to make some mini quilts?…these 12 blocks could all be quilted and bound to make a mini quilt in itself…hmmm thats cool too right?
I will be adding special stitches to the appliques and will be doing videos on our FB page, this first block has 5 different stitches on it!!…I’ll give you the FB group info at the end so you can join after you sign up…They are closed groups only for those who do the SBOWs and they are still ongoing we do not stop them so it takes you a year to complete your project the group is still active…Randy is also on board to help us again in our FB groups- this is awesome as we all LOVE Randy, his quilts and his gardens…
All the details and the pricing is here on the Shop BLOG I did not want to screw anything up so Jess has everything in detail there…there are also supply kits for everything that we discount at 25% off of everything you order. When you are reading the shop blog…click the links leading you to the website to order.
Pieced Quilt…Starlit Skies...I LOVE this quilt and everyone who saw the blocks in person loved them too!!! Also did you notice…NO Triangles!!! So keep making those Friendship stars while you make this as well…this is easy easy easy…my fast cutting and piecing directions will make this fun to piece…
You will get 4 blocks each week for a total of 48…I will have two ways to set the quilt, with star cornerstones & sashing and you can choose when we offer the finishing kits…Jess also has a supply kit for this as well..
Hexi Haven is our Hand Pieced or EPP project…
Debbie from the shop is making this…and it’s so gorgeous!!! Again…all the details will be at the link above, too many to list here….
This is the hexi pattern from my floor at the Lakehouse!!!
I hope this interests you enough to go and see if you want to join in…I especially love the Facebook group…I love seeing everyone’s blocks each week and the help that’s available there…so I can’t wait to see some of you again and I hope we get some new people who this might be the first time they are doing the SBOW…(Summer Block of the Week)
And PLEASE, if you have any questions after reading this or the website descriptions please call our shop…the girls will be ready to help you with anything you need. We are a full service quilt shop and want to take care of you personally if you give us the chance…our phone number is… 920-722-7233.
Here is the info for the Facebook groups:
As we have done in previous years we will have a Facebook Group set up for those of you who join any of the 3 SBOW programs. This year we will have 3 separate Facebook Groups, one for each of the SBOWs. Please make sure that you are Friends with Jessica Holz on Facebook, and then PM her to tell her which group you are in, she will then put you into the group. You will need to be Friends with her on Facebook since this is a CLOSED Group and only those in the SBOW programs can join in. This is a great way to learn new techniques and to share with one another! Some of you are already friends with me, for those of you who are not please look for this profile picture for who to friend request. Jessica Holz Facebook Profile Picture to Friend Request
Have a great weekend! Lisa
