Happy Mothers Day!!! Sale on Juki’s!!!

I want to wish all the Mother’s out there a Happy Mothers Day…I hope you can spend time with your children today…no matter how old they are, we just want to spend time with them…that’s all we need right?

I have been asked to put the JUKI sewing machine on special another time other than at Christmas time…so…In honor of Mother’s Day it will be on sale $100 off all this next week with free shipping in the US-International shipping will be given a $20 credit towards it…

Click HERE to read ALL about why you want a JUKI, and all the amazing things it comes with…also…I always get asked what sewing machine do you use? Here is my answer…I am a professional quilter…I can have any machine I want, I choose to sew on the $900 JUKI…that is not a typo…and If we sell a decent amount of them I will give one away to someone who has purchased one just like Christmas!!!…to purchase a JUKI click HERE .  We will wait till the sale is over to order and ship them out, so about two weeks just to be on the safe side.

If you own a Juki…please comment on how awesome it is!!

 
Maybe your Mother taught you to sew…maybe you still sew with your Mother…My Mother is a great cook-that’s what we do…we cook…again…Happy Mother’s Day…I know some of you do not have your Mother’s any longer…but today you will have lots of memories to visit…hopefully while you are stitching of course!!!

my best

Moda Blockheads…no block 10 from me…

Click here to go to Jan’s Blog for block 10 instructions and an appliqué tutorial…I love this simple flower and basket block…

I am so sorry I have not had a chance to finish on Jan’s block…I have the appliqués cut out but had not had a chance to hand stitch them…All my free time is spent working on my market designs…as my fabric arrived just a few days ago…but I guess to make up for it….I can show you how I am setting my blocks at least so far what I have done..I am adding a large outer star to each 6′ block using fabrics from all six of us…If you want the measurements they are 7 1/4″ square cut in half twice for the large triangle- 4-3 1/2″ squares for the corners and then, 4- 3 7/8″ squares cut in half once for the triangle points.Blocks measure 12 1/2″ at this point.

I also am making 1″ HST for my Liberty Gatherings blocks…and then will do 2″ stars for cornerstones with light sashing…I am stitching in the Gerald R Ford meeting room at the Grand Hotel in Mackinac Island MI…Don’t you love this carpet with the stars and the red,white and blue???…and …perfect place to show you my blocks…I will finish Jan’s basket block and make an alternative pieced block when I get home…after all the market stuff is done…we are making great progress…but then this happened…we have to fussy arrange and stitch the four patches…for the cornerstones…otherwise this would have been done except for the borders…Amy is here with me being the pressing queen, starch goddess and stitching in between running a little store here while I teach every day….Thank you for understanding my situation up here… trying to teach 5 days of classes…then evening events and then stitching late into the evening after dinner on quilts for market in St. Louis…we leave on Tuesday next week…yikes!! Time to get to bed…last class tomorrow…will post about classes and fun up here at a later time too…can’t wait to see your basket block..keep posting them…Make sure to visit all the blogs…

Block 35!!! Triangle Gatherings..

Happy Friday Everyone!!

I am currently on the beautiful island of Mackinac…Getting ready to spend a week with almost 200 quilters/stitchers  We are at the Needlework Seminar put on by the Musser Family who own the Grand Hotel.  Mrs Musser loved the needle arts…so we are honored to be apart of this special experience here at the Grand Hotel..

I believe I saw an ad for the 2018 seminar in the Paducah Show book with an allstar cast of teachers…and if you can… you need to come to one of these events here on this special island!!  We are ferried in…the horse carriage brings us up to the hotel (there are no cars here) the meals are amazing…and then there is so much to do…but we are working…so we have to squeeze things in when we can…We got on the ferry in Mackinaw City…The huge bridge connecting the UP to upper lower MI…

The Island..can you see Fort Mackinac on the left?

This cart is hauling all of “our” stuff for the week…there’s a store in there as well as our sewing essentials to make our quilts for market!! You arrive in style here…will post more I promise….

We are hoping that fabric arrives today!!! Wish us luck, prayers and everything else…as the 16 draws closer everyday!!!  If we don’t get it today that means Monday!!! which is a lot of days lost…

So in the meantime I plan on stitching more TG blocks…while waiting…so here’s another for you!!!

love seeing your blocks keep posting!!!  Lisa

Block 9 Moda Blockheads…

Today is Block 9…Jo Morton has designed us another beautiful block…Click HERE for the pattern…

I love this block…easy to make and love that you can fussy cut something in the center…

Here is my patriotic version as well…

Question of the Week:

May 3 – Cleaning Sewing Machines:  How frequently?  How thoroughly?  On a related side-note – have we named our sewing machine?  Machines? What kind of machine do you prefer?

I clean my machine about every five bobbins…I go in and sweep the dust bunnies out…about twice a year I take the throat plate completely off and do some “spring/fall” cleaning…My machine does not have a name…I’ll work on that…it’s probably because I have several at different locations.  I will confess..I have two Bernina’s,1260 & 1530…..two featherweights, one black, one white..5 Juki’s which is my regular machines that I stitch on….Two at home, one in the work studio and two in two in CA…one in the shop and one at Brooke & Lukes house…You understand right???  I LOVE the JUKI, nothing comes close to it…If you are curious read this post…JUKI.  

If you need to have one after reading it you can purchase one HERE  Best machine you’ll ever own for quilting.

Make sure you stop over to see what all the other designers have for you this week!!!

Triangle Gatherings Block 34

Welcome to rainy dreary WI…my tulips are flowering!!! They are supposed to be white and off white??? oh well…they are still beautiful!!!

I’m home from Paducah…unpacked, washing and packing to leave on Thursday for Mackinaw Island…to stay/teach at the Grand Hotel!!! So much fun…BUT…I still don’t have my fabric for Spring Market…Moda will have to ship it to me on the island!!!…I will be working at night to get those quilts done…Amy is coming along to help vend and we will be starching and cutting and stitching all night!!!  I know  they will get done, but 3 big quilts and 3 mini’s…to be done before we leave on the 16th…not going to enjoy it like usual, but that’s why it’s called work!!!

Spent the day with “little man”…we had a blast as usual…he “painted” three pictures for me…he’s very prolific…see two brushes at a time!!! 

 

I hope I can keep all together the next couple of weeks…we are getting ready to launch the Summer Blocks of Week, then there’s Blockheads coming and next week while I’m gone too…Triangle Gatherings and Row by Row is starting soon, plus Spring Market!!!… trying hard to pull it all off!!!

Here’s anther TG block..to keep you busy too!
