Wonderful Quilting Month !

With all the snow storms & bad winds, this past month has been a gift of quilting time.  It's just been a super National Quilting Month!  Hope you've enjoyed it, too!

Busy, busy at the sewing machine;  I have a number of pieces of the Cumberland Collection by Choice Fabrics; picked up fat quarters & some 1/2 yd. cuts in both the reds & blues almost a year ago now, and have just yearned to work with them.  I left them out in plain view so as not to forget my plans.

These reds worked up into a new Table Cozee; I'll demo on this little quilt next weekend at the retreat in Little Falls, MN.  Sharon & I are really getting anxious to get on the road in another week.  This little Table Cozee is all ready to demo my method for mitering corners & then how the Easy Scallop works for marking scalloped borders.  It is absolutely one of my favorite tools because I love scalloped borders & curved corners.

The blues are beautiful in this collection, too.  I must make another Table Cozee from the blue!  Absolutely, what could be more fun than working with a group of fabrics you've had tucked away for months.

I'm also putting together a little quilt from Jo's blacks & golds for the demonstration, too!  Won't it be cute with the border prints.  Love that gold!

Well, everyone, have a blessed Easter.  Hope the weather stays somewhat warm here in the Midwest for the weekend; a little spring rain would be wonderful.

Retreat in Little Falls, MN !!

Sue Herzberg, owner of Quilt Cove, in Eagan, MN is hosting her annual Spring Quilt Retreat in Little Falls, Minnesota !

Come join us at the Lake Beauty Bible Camp on April 3 - 7 or whatever arrival & departure works for you.  Sounds like a wonderful place - right? 

Bull Run Quilt
I'll be teaching the second quilt in the Civil War Battle Series - Bull Run, so beautiful in its application of a toile fabric or use a floral in that alternate block for a totally different look.  We'll cover the construction of the main railroad block & the alternate snowball block.  Then let you sew until your heart's delight.

Table Cozees II

Next day we'll make 4 simple propeller blocks for the Table Cozees II , then cover mitering of the corners & scalloping the border with the Easy Scallop.  Again you should have lots of time to sew.

Table Cozees II

Included in the Table Cozees II pattern is a second pattern, Old Maid's Puzzle, & we'll learn border scallops like these.

Here is a link to the brochure for the retreat.  Join us for the fun!
