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! Sunset on the Sound Mystery  ~ Completed Quilts:  How tada! If you missed out

Holiday Extravaganza Clue #2 ~ Flying Triangles

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.

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!
