Need Advice, Block of the Month, Sampler (entry 112)

Hi Everyone, how’s everyone’s week been? Mine has been good and busy, up bright and early this morning writing this blog post as I have a full day. I’ll also do a quick blog posting about the St. Albert Quilt Show I attended last weekend with my Sister and my Mum for Mother’s day.

To Do’s

– finish sampler as I need to have it photographed by Monday for the school catalogue – how exciting hey?

– do freebie 15 block as tomorrow is the 15th

– do A Kitten’s Tale Block 3 – get it put together

– figure out how much the finishing kits will be for the sampler and email to students

So, what about your day?

I’ve been working on programming my website, got a new gal all lined up to be e-interviewed for June and she’s got quite the story…I have a brand new poll coming up for our block of the month clubs, not sure exactly how this works but I’m learning as I go. Here’s a sneak peak of what I have instore for the fall…if Interested email me and tell me which one you would like to try and I’ll mark you down to be contacted. 

Crazy Christmas by Lynette Anderson

HocusPocusVille by Crabapple Hill Girls

Life is Beautiful by Hugs and Kisses

Pies and Tarts by Sue Daley Designs

Snow Days by Crabapple Hills Girls

Truly Scrumptious by Cinderberry Stitches which is all Fairies in playful poses and it’s so adorable

Vintage Garden by Little Green Cottage, very whimsical

So have I tweaked your interest? As you can see a good combination of stitching and patchwork which seems to be very popular these days…if you are interested contact me and I’ll put you on the list to be contacted in the fall. Just think: shimmery silks, hand dyed flosses, crisp cottons, silk pins, step by step instructions….hmmm total bliss.

I need your advice, I have this idea in my head for a girls design not little girl but not teenage either. I’ve been getting mixed reviews on my colour palette. I’m thinking black, white and red but her room isn’t these colours at all…what do you think I really need some advice here ladies? I was hoping for a fun preteen style of quilt that she can take to slumber parties and whatever she likes but…is it too wild for that age group?

Here’s what my sampler for the Quilting – Get Started course is looking like. I’m going to finish the top today I have that mosaic border completed on 3 sides, what do you think?

Have a great weekend everyone, I have my DH’s Grandma’s 90th tomorrow so I’ll be busy making Mexican Chicken, Veggie Casserole and No-Bake Cheesecake tomorrow, what are you up to this weekend?

Until next time have a weekend full of happiness and creativity

  1. I love the red and black combo. Those are some of my favorites.

    Or Teal, Brown and Pink
    Maybe even blue, lime and brown. Those are awesome and everywhere in the preteen wardrobe.
