Holiday Extravaganza Clue #6.... some homework...

Image
Earlier in the week, I spent a few days with the Lady Bug Quilt Guild of Newark, DE.  What a great group!  I gave my When Life Gives you Fat Quarters lecture on Monday evening.  On Tuesday, the ladies worked on my Sparkle pattern and everyone did a fabulous job.  We were so busy sewing that I didn't get as many photos as I usually do, but you can check them out on my Facebook Page.

I'm in the process of getting organized and prepare for the Vermont Quilt Festival next week.  I still have room in most of my classes, if anyone is interested I'd love to see you in class!

Speaking of VQF, it is an event fill week.  The teachers set up on Tuesday, it runs through Saturday.  The teachers have 2 evenings of participation in addition our all day classes.  So, I planned a Bye-Week next week.... However, I'm giving you some homework.  😁

Clue # 6 ~ Block 6 ~ Lemoyne as Triangle Block

Majesty is off to the printer! Holiday Extravaganza Clue #5!

Image
Yeah another pretty Friday here in Connecticut!   Hopefully the weather holds up for a nice Father's Day weekend.

Another busy week here!

Majesty Lemoyne is off to the printers!  To create the Majesty Lemoyne I've taken strips of different sizes to create a fabulous looking block, and paired it with a more modern Log Cabin Block.  I added an Empire Border and I love it!  It really comes together easily with the Studio 180 Design's Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star and Tucker Trimmer III.   You can pre-order your copy here.  They should ship Friday, June 21st.

Happy June! Color Tips and Holiday Extravaganza Clue #4

Image
You have to admit, it seems a bit odd working with Holiday fabric in June!  However, I'm loving it.  I feel like I'm accomplishing something, knowing that by the end of September I will have not one but two (since I'm making two different versions) Holiday Quilts completed.

I hope everyone is enjoying the this late Spring, I feel like we've finally had a series of sunny days here in my part of New England.  My flowers are starting to bloom.  My much beloved Peonies are just fabulous this year, I guess April (and May) showers really bring May June flowers!😉


Sunset on the Sound Slideshow & Holiday Extravaganza Clue #3

Yeah, it is Friday and you know what that means, Holiday Extravaganza Mystery Clue Reveal Day!

I had a busy week as I'm sure many of you did.  Last weekend, I was up in Westminster, VT at the Twin State Modern Quilt Guild.  What a wonderful group of ladies!  Very talented, I got a sneak preview of their Lobby Lights Quilt display that will be hung at VQF (Vermont Quilt Festival).  Wow, just fabulous!

Before we get to the Holiday Extravaganza Clue, I want to take some time to reflect on the last Mystery, Sunset on the Sound.   My first official online Mystery Series and once again I was blown away with the participation and the stunning results.

Over the last few weeks, I requested that the participants email me their completed quilts and I received over 90 completed quilts tops! I put together this slideshow and I hope you take the time to check it out.  They really did a magnificent job!

Holiday Extravaganza Clue #2 ~ Flying Triangles

Image
Whew!  What a week so far!

Apologies for my delay today, I'm moving a little slow this morning.  I spent the last two days in Middletown, PA (just outside of Hershey) and got in a bit late last night.  This weekend I'm heading up to the Twin State Modern Quilt Guild in Westminster, VT.  By the end of the weekend I will have traveled through six states in 4 days!

Wednesday night I gave a lecture and trunk show to the Piecemaker Quilt Guild of Middletown, PA.    Yesterday, I taught my Bloom Quilt Workshop to these fabulous ladies.  Apologies, several of the ladies left by the time we thought to take a photo.  Great times!  Everyone enjoyed learning the S180 V Block and Square Squared.

Now for Holiday Extravaganza!  Clue #2 brings Block #2 ~ A variation on Flying Triangles.

Let's Talk Color! Let's get ready for Holiday Extravaganza!

It has been an exciting week!  Last weekend we wrapped up Spring Getaway 2019.  Then, Studio 180 Design revealed a new tool and now I'm one week closer to kicking-off my next Mystery Series, Holiday Extravaganza!

First, let's talk about Spring Getaway 2019!  It was a fantastic four days!  It was so nice to catch up with so many of you, in person, after a long winter.  The Lake Morey Resort was fantastic.  We had rain a few days, but who cares, any day you can wake up near water , are spending your day quilting and with people who love to quilt, it is a good day! 

Lynn and I got to meet a few "new-to-us" quilters.  We laughed, we sewed, we had fun and made tons of progress!  Thank you to all the quilters who came and enjoyed.  Lynn and I greatly appreciate the support!
You can check out more photos on my Sew on the Go Facebook page.

Most of the ladies are coming back for our Spring Getaway 2020, April 29th-May 3rd.  However, there are 5 open spots!  You can get more i…

Sunset on the Sound Bonus Project & Holiday Extravaganza!

Spring Getaway 2019 is underway at Lake Morey Resort in Fairlee, VT.  The Quilter's arrived yesterday.  Everyone is having a fabulous time.  We had Show and Tell last night, it was fabulous.  I hoped to show some photos today, but the internet isn't cooperating, so I will have to post them next week.

Reveal! Sunset on the Sound

Image
Yeah!  Sunset on the Sound Clue #16 Revealed!  

I hope you all love it as much as I do!  I had hoped to get my version quilted before the reveal but it didn't happen.  Life!  Plus you may remember I wanted to make mine a Queen after I saw it coming together.  Try as I might to find more background fabric to make my Throw a Queen, I was unable to find enough.  I thought I could "make it work" with what I found, but after recalculation I could not fanagal it (I know you know what I mean- 😁).  Therefore, I will have Throw and a Wall.  Which actually works out, as I can hang the Wall in my Sunroom/Studio while the Throw goes to work in my Trunk Show for a bit.

Note: Only the this week's clue is available for download.  Make sure to download your clue, as next Friday, it will be removed.  

If you love Sunset on the Sounds as much as I do, and didn't participate in the mystery or missed some clues.  You can now purchase the complete series, as download, in my Etsy shop…
