Boy oh Boy, there’s so much to tell you about I hardly know where to start. I guess chronologically makes sense. So tomorrow is the final meeting for Barbara Brackman’s Civil War Sampler Quilt. We made it, 50 blocks, many of which were complicated and challenging. If you have kept up you should congratulate yourself. If you haven’t remember that you can come to Work in Progress Wednesdays for free every week till you finish a top that you are happy with.
Next, this Tuesday is Fat Quarter Tuesday, which means that pre cut fat quarters are one dollar each. We want to see your beads and mardis gras sparkles. I will have some Jazz playing for atmosphere, and there will be discounts on fat quarter and scrap quilting books and patterns too. It is always a fun day and you can’t beat the price. it works out to four dollars a yard. That’s why I can only do it one day a year.
Wednesday is Work in Progress Wednesday, and I would love to see some of you finishing the Civil War Sampler, but any work in progress is game for you to work on.
Thursday is the first session for the Rocky Road workshop. Love this pattern, and I truly wish I had made my sample larger. You certainly can. The photo is a bit dark, but the quilt is lively and wonderful. In the first session we will do the string piecing to make the wedges. You may want to wait to make the other fabric choices until these are made. Full supply lists are on the workshops page.
Next Saturday we will be closed. I need to go support my daughter as she rides in her first ever horse show.
I am still hoping that we will be able to begin the next BOM, Alaska, on April 6. I have space for two more in the blue colorway as shown on the pattern. If you would like a different colorway please check the Alaska page for the possibilities and reserve your spot as soon as possible. I got so excited I found eight other sets of fabric that will work with this wonderful pattern. These are available first come first served. The blues have arrived, and I am busy doing prep work on your behalf. I just can’t wait to get sewing on this one. The acrylic templates have seam intersection holes so the hand piecers out there need not worry.
I look forward to seeing all of you and sharing the excitement.
