    Well the County Fair is done, Madison Expo is over, school has started and fall is in the early stages. I have to say I do like a little cooler weather and am ready for fall to show us its wonderful show of color. The sad part is the winter cold is now on its way in not so many weeks. The next season is also a busy sewing season, so we better get going. There are a few things to get you going so read on and join in the fun.

QUILTERS JOY MYSTERY

    Well next up to get you going is a good mystery. I can give you some of the details but biggest detail what it looks like? SORRY, NO CAN DO! So here goes, pattern is from Border Creek Station, fabric is from Moda, designer is 3 Sisters, colors are ecru for the background, and greens, eggplant and ecru/rose print. It will go over an 8 month time period and you can choose lap or queen size. The lap size is $20 a month, queen $26 a month. It is all pieced and would be beautiful most anywhere, great for a wedding gift.
    Well that is about all I can tell you or there might be consequences, and I can’t be bribed either, I don’t think?? So just think by next fall you could have a top ready and a project done. Sign up at anytime, let me know what size, lap or queen. Start time will be the last Saturday in October.

BUCKET LIST CLUB

    Get your PHD here. You can’t tell me you don’t have a list of Projects Half Done, a quilter always has them. Well here is a fun group to help you do just that. We meet the first Wednesday of the month, show and tell of projects done and also solve world problems along the way. We also think someone will maybe listen to our solutions but that hasn’t happened yet. All you do is go through your unfinished projects and write them down and number them 1 -12 and turn them in to me. At the meeting I will pull a number and that’s what you will hopefully finish by the next month. Problem with something? The group is good at giving help in that department. Join us and you will start to see progress in getting things done. Next list turn in date is by the end of October. REMEMBER FIRST WEDNESDAY OF THE MONTH!!!!

SOON TO COME

    Soon to come will be a Block of the Month by Kim Diehl called Journey’s End. This will be a scrappy project and will go over a 6 month period and will have other projects for you to do along with the BOM of houses with quilt squares as part of the house. So stay tuned for more info as the end of the year approaches.
