April is almost over!

It is really hard to believe that April is more than half over. We are busy getting ready for the May 1st Quilt Spree preview day. We have some make it take its planned and some demos planned. As always we will have yummy food and drink.

Mary and Deb have been working on some new wool bundles with awesome spring colors. Expect to see some cool wool projects early summer. For those of you who have not worked with wool you should really try it. It is so easy, and very forgiving.

Last weekend was a busy weekend for quilters in the Columbus Area. The James Stitching Sisters had over 170 quilters at their annual sew in. My sister Bobbi was there are said it was very moving. This is the first year in a long time that we missed this event.  Also going on this weekend was the Columbus Metropolitan Quilters Quilt Show. We were vendors at this event and it was fun seeing everyone and all of the beautiful quilts. Here are some of the beautiful quilts that some of my friends made:

And here is a picture of me and my friends... notice how hard I am working!.. lol

Everyone have a good weekend!

Happy Friday!

Hey everyone!
Sorry we were so focused on getting an email out and getting ready for the Columbus Metropolitan Quilters Quilt show this weekend that we forgot to post to the blog.

We have Amy Bradleys new quilt hanging in the shop. It is called Snow day, Sew Day. It is very cute!

On Friday I am vending at the Columbus Metropolitan Quilt Show at the Haimerl Center, 1421 Morse Road, Columbus 43229. On Saturday I am taking the day off to visit with my daughter and to watch her get honored for receiving a full scholarship for her senior year of college. The year has just flown by! I can't believe she is graduating already.

We will be back in action next week with new books and fabrics being posted.

Thanks for the great support!

Have a great weekend!

Lights Camera Action!

Hey everyone! Happy Spring!

Last night the Fat Quarters met for their April meeting. This was the meeting when everyone had to turn in the guild challenge. The theme this year was Lights, Camera, Action! and each participant was required to use polka dots in at least 30% of the challenge which was to measure no bigger then 18 x 22.  All of the photos are on our facebook page. Check them out!

It is really fun see all of the entries and everyone's ideas.
