You asked for it Eugene and Springfield! I’ve been able to secure a wonderful location for a Barn Quilt Painting Class locally at Peace Presbyterian Church! The date is Saturday June 22nd, 9:30am-3:30pm.
This class is so much fun, spending time with friends and finishing a wonderful project! Choose from dozens of block choices, or bring a favorite. I provide the pre-primed 2ft x 2ft board, 65+ paint colors to choose from, all the drawing, taping and painting supplies needed for the day.
Please bring a 6 x 24″ quilter’s ruler if you have one, a paper scissors and an apron (or wear painting clothes). Bring your lunch/water and snacks.
See the wonderful blocks that were painted in class a couple weeks ago in Kennewick, WA by the Tri-Cities Quilters Guild members.
Yay! It’s out there in stores now! Quilts and More, one of my all-time favorite magazines includes one of my quilt designs for this, the Summer 2019 issue. They sell fast, so be sure to get your soon. So, why is this one of my favorites? There is a huge variety of quilt projects, including bags, pillows, table runners as well as fun quilts in all sizes.
You know, I DO love a project! So the crafty inspiration really gives me a boost. I actually try to make at least one thing from every magazine I bring home, or at least use the inspiration for a new design of my own.
Poking my head in today to let you know that I’ve updated my calendar for the next couple of months. Look for it, shown as EVENTS in the top toolbar.
ALSO, I have had a fun day with the guys from Boersma’s who came to town to install my new Innova Longarm! I had sold my old one, and was missing being able to quilt my own quilts. So off to McMinnville I went–it’s a very familiar shop to me as our son went to college there, so I was able to visit regularly.
And Jack. I’ve known him for so long, from teaching at the longarm conventions, and trouble shooting problems with my old machine. I just trust his insight and knowledge. So, now that the machine is here, I will have to pace myself! I’ll be tempted to be out there in the studio using it all the time! One thing is for sure, I’m really happy and grateful to have an Innova, and looking forward to showing you what I can do with it! It is not a computerized machine–though it does have a stitch regulator. I love the artistry of “drawing” on the quilt, so really didn’t want a computer. Once I get my act together (HAHAHAHA!), I’m hoping to have an open house to celebrate and show all my local friends what’s up over here!
