We’re showing off our Quilter’s Celebration Mystery Quilts on Saturday, September 14th. We’re inviting everyone, so please join us and bring a friend! (Call to sign up if possible, but you can come if it’s at the last minute, too.) It’s at 10:am EST. and there’s no charge. The original fabrics are shown on the quilt here, but we used a variety of fabrics.. These are a few of our members with one of the blocks early on.
How about joining us for this year’s mystery, Quilter’s Dessert? You might describe our new Mystery project as “traditional style with a bit of a contemporary feel.” Sherry Hisey, of Border Creek Station, gives us step-by-step color instructions which are well written, in an entertaining way. She adds interesting facts and stories, and even some recipes! I add pages with extra tips and photos.
Make our Quilter’s Dessert in a 100” x 100” queen size, a 56” x 98” bed runner, or a 68” x 68” lap or wall quilt. Use the beautiful Three Sisters’ Vin du Jour fabrics from Moda that it was designed in, one of our two alternatives, or choose your own fabrics with the same color values and scale. Local people may make a personal appointment with “one of our Cathys” for help choosing, if you like. You’ll only need 2 to 4 hours most months to complete the steps.
If you’re working on the mystery with me (Erica) in the shop, we’ll be meeting each month, usually on the first Saturday morning, except in October which is the second Saturday, October 12th. At each meeting I’ll be revealing the “clue” (instructions) and showing you the steps for that month. You’ll get new clues for 8 months (if you have to miss a meeting, you may pick up your clue later, or we can mail it to you) and we’ll have a “Reveal Party” in September, 2014, to show off our Quilter’s Dessert quilts! You may also just pick up your clues each month in the store, or participate as an internet member. We’ll have more details in our newsletter early in October. If you don’t get the email to notify you when the newsletter’s available, sign up to receive it by clicking here.
We’d love to have you join us to see our Quilter’s Celebrations, and “solve” the new mystery, Remember, you can see What’s New at Erica’s almost every day! Any page of our website has a column on the left that tells you where to find things, and all you have to do is look for “New Items” in purple, and click to find out.
