It has taken a bit this morning to get the usual post up, I had some camera issues so not all the photos are up for the summer showcase, but descriptions, schedules and supply lists are ready and waiting for you under the tab. With the temperatures where they have been the last few days talking about the summer projects is a good fit. You might think that a theme like Text-iles would be limited, but the more I play and developed workshops for you the more variety I found. From patchwork inspired by vintage sampler alphabets, to contemporary mandalas that look like some of the ones found in the Grownup coloring books that are everywhere you turn. And of course it wouldn’t be summer without a surface design project, this one uses a simple version of block printing. You wouldn’t believe how simple it is to make and carve the mirror image letters needed to make a legible print. And of course lettering on quilts is most commonly found on labels so we have a workshop on that just in time for you to label your entry for the County Fair.
I just know it is going to be a great summer!!! I may even have one more exciting thing to add, just hunting down some supplies for it. Stay tuned. In the meantime, tomorrow the Block of the Month will meet, and Tuesday is Handstitchers Club. We are working on our embroidery stitch sampler, this time we will experiment with some wide linear stitches. See the Club News page for more details and feel free to join us!!!
