Our first Block of the Month quilt is completed. At least my sample is done. The first two classes who have been making these blocks will be finishing theirs in the next couple of months. They have almost finished the blocks and will be learning how to put them together. This has been such a fun project. The “Quilt As You Go” method is a great way to learn to quilt on a domestic sewing machine. If you are interested in learning to quilt or maybe you quilt but would like to learn a new technique then this is for you. We have a new Block of the Month session starting on Saturday, June 18th. Don’t you want to join us? Check it out here and register early. We are limited to six for these classes so register early.

I recently saw an amazing postage stamp quilt that was king size and made with 1 inch squares…over 7000 of them!!! So, of course, it made me want to try it. The table runner in the photo (The one with the border and the bowl) was made with 1 inch squares. The other one was made using jelly rolls so the finished squares are 2 inches. These were fun but I don’t think I can stand 7000 squares of fun. LOL! You can make one of these beautiful patchwork table runners or toppers (square) on Sunday, April 3rd at 2 pm at The Studio. And the best part is all supplies are included so you don’t have to buy 50 different fabrics to get this look. Join us to learn an easy trick to putting a bunch of little squares together. Click here to register. Space is limited so don’t wait.

Connie and Katrina used the Open Studio Friday time to paint Barn Quilts. Nice work! Open Studio is time to work on projects of your choice with friends and other artists. There is a variety of projects going on at The Studio on Fridays. Yesterday, in addition to the Barn Quilts, there were painters working on canvas, an artist framing her art, and two quilters-one cutting fabric for a quilt and one making quilted placemats. There is always something exciting going on at The Studio. Join us!

I’ve been busy quilting since September when I watched a Quilt as You Go video. I was hooked. It’s been so much fun. I’ve made several Christmas presents and can’t wait to finish the one I currently have on the machine. Love this process!

The obsession with Quilt As You Go continues. I just completed this quilt with this beautiful Georgia themed fabric that I found at Joann’s Fabrics…..never mind that I am in Virginia. I couldn’t figure out why they have Georgia fabric here. Probably some Joann’s in Georgia got a delivery of Virginia fabric. LOL! But lucky me as I am from Georgia and I love the fabric. Notice in the close up shot the outline of the state with images of scenes around the state….and then there is the brown fabric with Georgia in script as well as the peach and flip flop fabrics. I admit the flip flop fabric was listed as Florida state fabric but anyone who is from Georgia knows that flip flop is practically year round footwear! I like the way the broken diamond sting quilt design turned out. This is a fun, fun, fun way to quilt!
