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

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 Block #6 ~ Lemoyne as Triangle ~ Both of my Fabric selections

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

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. Majesty Lemoyne!

Happy June! Color Tips and Holiday Extravaganza Clue #4

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!😉 Peonies 2019
