Of Quilts and Gratitude



Of Quilts and Gratitude

As we approach Thanksgiving, like many folks I begin thinking of what I am grateful for.  And like many, that list includes family, friends, and of course quilting.  Naturally, that includes you, dear quilter.

Personally, quilting has brought me many new friends (woot woot), and given me the freedom to express myself though so many different projects.

It provides opportunity to try new techniques (and fail at many!), and to learn - about myself, about others, and if you want to get truly philosophical, about life.  As we approach this season of gratitude, what's uppermost on your list?  

Because you, quilting friend, are one of the things I am most grateful for, I have a little quilty gift for you.  What, you say, a gift?!  Yep, just for you.  But.....I wanted to make it a bit more fun for you - have to find it!  Yes, that's right - you have a Thanksgiving season treasure hunt!  But hurry.  The quilty gift will only be on the website for two weeks (until Thanksgiving Day, November 23rd).  Have fun exploring!

Getting Ready for Gift Giving Season?

Not that I want to stress you out, but....44 days until Christmas!! Yikes - I need to get to stitching if I'm going to make my quilty gifty goals this year.  What about you?  Are you on track for all of your gift making plans?

If not, I have a few suggestions for you!  Did you know I have 
a Craftsy class?  Yep, Quick Quilted Gifts.  And as the name implies, it offers four different options for quilty gifts.  The class includes not only instructions but also patterns for Celebration Slices, Forever (my infinity scarf), Mary's Contrary Garden, and (not available anywhere else) Double Dutch (a fun, faux curve table set).  If this sounds intriguing to you, then I have such a deal for you!  This link will allow you to get the class for 50% off so you can begin your gift stitching right away!

But wait - there's more (said with the inflection of an infomercial!).  Through November 23rd, I'm bundling my Tea Towel motif patterns as a special package - just for you!  The bundle of eight patterns is $24.00 through November 23rd.  Such a deal, right?
What are the tea towel patterns?  A series of eight different motifs that you can use to embellish tea towels - but you can use them to embellish anything - pillows, quilt blocks, bags, clothing....pretty much anything you can think of.  Not really into applique?  Not to worry - these are all fusible applique shapes that are quick and fun to do.  

                   New Patterns

Three new patterns have been added to the pattern shop:  Journeys, Sound Waves (available for preorder), and Elementz Block of the Month (available for preorder.  Check 'em out!

Thanks for sharing the quilting passion with me.  Happy stitching
