Suenami Sensation is on the way to Pennington!

No Black Friday shopping for me, my husband and I are taking a road trip to NJ.

Suenami Sensation is on its ready to make it's way to Pennington Quilt Works to be displayed for my upcoming class on January 18th.



This is Studio 180 Design's Suenami, designed by Sue Tucker, there is actually a great story that goes with the naming of this quilt that I can share in class. :)  Sue's version is used with Jewel tone and is gorgeous.    I'm in love with this Dear Stella Lola fabric and thought it would look great in Blue, White and Yellow.   It is made with 16 Fat Quarter, 8 Dark and 8 Light.  Plus two borders and binding.  It is 68" x 68" and is made with Deb Tucker's Rapid Fire Petite Hunter Star.

I quilted it with thread in the same yellow from the border.  It looks great, if I do say so myself!

 
This fabric selection will be available, in kits, at Pennington Quilt Works.  I suspect it will be on the website in a few days.
 


Off to PQW, as my husband likes to say, another hundred dollar day.  I tell him, that is easy compared to what some others are doing today.

Banded Lemoyne

So, I've been meaning to post pictures from my Studio 180 Certification Class and just haven't had the chance.  Well, I finally have download the photos and I figure I will share a picture every few days between now and Christmas.  My own little gift to you!


This is Deb Tuckers Banded Lemoyne Star.  Hopefully she will draft up the pattern really soon.  All us Certified Instructors (CI) keep bugging her... LOL   It really is spectacular.  In the meantime, you can learn this technique, it is on the Studio 180 Design's Banded Lemoyne Technique sheet.

On Friday, I have to place an order at Studio 180, so I'm going to have the tech sheet and ruler for sale at my Sew On the GO Etsy Shop.

Also, if you near (or could be near), I'm teaching a Loco for Lemoyne 2 Day class at Pennington Quilt Works on February 28 - March 1st.  The Banded Lemoyne will be one of the 7 Lemoyne Stars taught.  Can't wait. I should have something ready for a sneak peak soon!

In the meantime, enjoy your Thanksgiving.    I'm thankfully for all my friends and family, and all their support over the years.

Big news week!

More exciting news today! I got a call from MAQ( Mid-Applalachian Quilters ) and they have accepted my application to teach at their MAQ in 2014.


It is held each year at Mount St. Mary's University, in Emmitsburg MD.  This year the dates are July 18-20, 2014 

They selected my Honey V and my Modern Victorian Hunter Star.  Plus, I will teach one of Deb Tucker's quilts, Southern Hospitality.  Woo Hoo!

Can't wait.  Hope to see some of you there!

Exciting few days!

Well it has been an exciting few days.  On Friday, I was contacted by Mary Bargiel from the Strong House Inn to host a weekend in 2015 at the Quilting in Vermont event.  I will be the host instructor for February 27-29, 2015 which is a Friday - Sunday.  So, mark those calendars, I expect to see some of you there.

Quilting in Vermont is an awesome event.  The Strong House Inn is a destination spot for the most spectacular weekend of quilting, excellent food all in the ambiance of a historic country inn in a picturesque Vermont setting. What can be better than quilting with your best quilting friends and to be pampered at the same time!


I can't wait. It is where Deb Tucker got her start, and I'm so happy to be invited. I'm thinking of teaching my Loco for Lemoyne Star class -yes I know, I haven't gotten back to you all with more than a teaser.  I should have something more for you this week.  Here is a big teaser, in the mean time.


So, the next exciting thing is...  I taught my first class at Yankee Quilter in Seymour, CT.  Had a wonderful class of 10 ladies.  I'm so glad they made time on their busy pre-holiday weekend.  Who needs to clean!! Sewing is so much more fun. 

The ladies worked on the Signs of Autumn table runner using the WingClipper for the flying geese, and Quickets & Pickets.  Then, the Corner Beam for our leaf tip.    My only regret was that I forgot to take photos.  

Last but not least; I confirm up my guild appearance at Heritage Quilters of Wallingford for May 2014.  Plus got asked to go to the Southford Falls Quilt Guild in Middlebury, CT in February 2014.

Can't beat that for 2 days.  Today, I'm finishing up the binding on Suenami Sensation, for my January class at Pennington Quilt Works

Great Hunter Star class - Pennington Quilt Works

Had a great time at Penninton Quilt Works yesterday, teaching my Modern Victorian Hunter Star class.  We had eight wonderful ladies. 

I had the Blue team (one table had three ladies all using blue) - can't wait to see them!

Plus we had the Variety team (one table had batiks, to modern graphic, to stash and then my kit).

We had a blast.

I ran the class through my next class proposal for Feb 28th and March 1st - It is call Loca for Lemoynes!  They loved it! More to follow!

Mary Kay finished her quilt!!

Mary Kay purchased my Honey V pattern from Pennington Quilt Works (penningtonquilts.com).  She was so kind to send me a picture of her finished quilt.

She did an awesome job with this, it is for her niece.  In fact, she said she loved the pattern so much, she is out to purchase more fabric to make for a friend!


I'm teaching this class, this Sunday at Pennington Quilt Works in Pennington NJ.  I think there may be a spot or two left.

You can purchase the pattern from my Etsy Store: https://www.etsy.com/listing/162480914/honey-v-quilt-pattern? and the Studio 180 Design "V Block" ruler: (https://www.etsy.com/listing/163598611/studio-180-designs-v-block-tool)

Deb Tucker designed this ruler and it makes this block so much easier.  Unlike the other similar rulers, this is just one ruler!  Not two templates and it makes tons of sizes!

In addition, Pennington Quilt Works (www.penningtonquiltworks.com) may have a few kits left in my sections.

Happy Quilting.... Finishing touches on my Lola SueNami Sensation.  It will be kitted up at Pennington Quilt Works and the class is being held there as well on January 18th.  A full class schedule is available on my Website (http://sewonthego.net/classes).
