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.
For my Sunset on the Sound followers, there is a Bonus project this week, to use up those cut-offs from the Corner Beams.
The Bonus ProjectDownload will be available through until May 3rd.
Wow! Is all I can say about the completed Sunset on the Sound Quilts being shared on the SOTS Facebook page! I can't wait to show them to those of you that aren't following along. If you are following along, please be sure to email me your completed photos of your SOTS quilts by May 17th. My email is Michelle.firstname.lastname@example.org
For those thinking about joining in on my next Mystery Series, Holiday Extravaganza, I have update the Overview download to include the full details, in…
Woohoo! Today, I'm kicking off my Mini-Mystery, Ticker Tape Parade, which is a Jelly Roll challenge. I don't know about you, but I have a ton (and I mean ton) of Jelly Rolls. I've been collecting them for years. It is a great way to get a variety of fabric, often the full line, without a major purchase.
However, I've found that most Jelly Roll quilt patterns, all look the same to me, and haven't used many. Now, since I've been designing patterns, I've tried to change the fact that all Jelly Roll patterns look alike. I have a couple patterns that use Jelly Rolls for some of the sizes and I do not think they look like traditional Jelly Roll patterns. (Whirling Lemoynes and Moonlight Garden).
I've made a point to make sure the end result of this mystery doesn't look like a Jelly Roll quilt. I hope you love it as much as I do. In full honesty (you know I'm always upfront), we will be working with some small pieces, afterall we are starting …
Happy Tuesday! Bonus Blog post this week, as I'm hosting one of today's stops on the Whistle Stop Tour!
From yesterday, September 9 through next Monday, September 16, 2019, ten S180 Certified Instructors will show you how to make the blocks for the Union State quilt. We will be using Deb Tucker's new Signature Collection, Steam Engine by Kathy Engle for Island Batik.
Each day of the hop, you will tour a different S180 Certified Instructor's blog to download the cutting instructions for each block. The download will give you fabric placement and a block layout diagram for a 12” block. Instructions for making the pieced border will come in the middle of the tour. On Monday, September 16th you will receive the finishing instructions for the quilt from the S180 Blog.
Yeah! The kick-off of my Sunset on the Sound Mystery is here! Thank you to everyone who plans on participating. I promise this will be great fun and manageable.
First off, THANK YOU, to all of those who joined me for my 2018 Timeless with a Twist journey. I appreciate all the notes you sent or posted last week! I love hearing from you and I especially love seeing your progress photos. Please keep them coming!
Okay, for our next journey, I want to get some Sunset on the Sound house-keeping out of the way:
The most important thing you can do is read my newsletter and especially the blog post each week. I will provide pictorials of each of the week's clue plus the download with details. The biggest thank you, you can give me, is to read the information I take the time to prepare, so that you are successful. While I love hearing from each of you, it is tough to handle 30+ emails each week that are asking information that was already provided, in great detail, here on the bl…
