It's a new year and I'm going to post new posts. I say this every time and every day I still get people who are looking on Pintrest of pictures from years ago wanting me to identify it. Folks, my focus is on current product and current workshops. At this point I don't know what else to tell you about Pinterest. It's not a reliable source for current product that we carry, but our website...is. If you're here on my blog, items in current dated posts are what you'll find on our website. If you're looking at a post from 2012...not gonna have it.
New designs, new fabrics, new...new...new!
But first...a little heavy-in-thought-dancin' at my desk...
I'm going to get it out of you people yet!
In the last post I shared that I had a feeling a Beginning Quilt class was on the horizon. Well...yes indeed it is. In fact, this session will start Wednesday, February 21 with the follow up class on Wednesday, March 21. Yes, it is a two part class with some homework in between! The "Mothership" believes in getting you set up with only the best quilting habits to begin with; accurate cutting, proper use of a ruler and rotary cutter, sewing with a 1/4" seam and good pressing techniques are all emphasized during this class.
The pattern for the class is called Dreamin' and it uses one (1) Jelly Roll, which is a roll of 42 pre-cut 2.5" strips.
Yes, one Jelly Roll will make this 70" x 84" quilt!
This is why I love Jelly Rolls! Do not dismiss them because at $39 they are a very affordable way to create a coordinated quilt. Personally I like a quilt whose color story has been well thought out. Why anyone would want to spend time making something that isn't coordinated is beyond me. Make it beautiful!
For our sample we used Moda's Creekside but it would look fantastic in many of our favorite designer fabrics. Here it is pictured below made up in some classic Fig Tree!
That's all I have for you today! Thanks for stopping by and remember kids...stay seeew-cial! ~ Brian
