BUCKET LIST

    Here is a chance for you to get some of those UFO projects done. We are all so great at putting things off now is the time to say let’s get things done and follow through and actually do it. This group is ongoing so jump in at any time. Here is how it works, turn in a list of unfinished projects to me, and on the first Wednesday of the month, if you can make it we meet at 1PM, and I draw a number that is the project you work on that month and bring it to the next meeting. We all know accountability is what makes it work and so far it has. So give it a try and be amazed at what you all can get done. The extra is, we solve some of the world’s problems, at least how we would like them to be, we laugh a lot and we solve some problems if you don’t know how to handle a quilting issue, which is probably what stopped the project to begin with. So come and join the fun.

NEW ROW OF THE MONTH

    A new book is out with the Moda All Star designers and they all did a different row for quilts that you can mix and match. Well, I fell in love with one of the quilts they did and would like to invite you to join me. It will go over a 6 month period and will be done in red and cream colors. It is lap size, and has a little applique and the rest is pieced. The cost is $18 a month, for book and fabric for top and binding. Let me know so I can get the books and fabric for row 1 ready. This will be a practice for the upcoming Row by Row Experience this summer. Call soon 262-723-1213 to save a spot.


QUILTERS… CUT WITH HOPE, STITCH WITH GRACE, QUILT WITH DREAMS, BIND WITH LAUGHTER, AND SHARE WITH LOVE.
