Wow! What a quiet Mardi Gras. This whole year will be a memorable event for the kids of today.
Several of you have been in to do some catch up sewing which surely made it more fun. Months of lock up gets old. Now that I'm totally vaccinated, I sure feel a lot more comfortable in public. I know many of my friends are fearful and will not take it. As small as the needle was, I doubt if I've been implanted with a GPS or anything else. Plus I'm not willing to wait ten years or so to see if there will be a problem, since it won't matter at my age.
I'm EXCITED. New shipments are arriving daily. Where, oh where, will I put it all? Those in BOM are creating a truly vintage quilt. If you know of anyone local who is willing to hand quilt these (for a fee, of course) let me know. Otherwise I have a few quilters out of state who can do it.
Brenda Clyde is offering a one day class on April 24th. Contact her at Stitchesfromheaven@acsalaska.net
All the clues will be give before hand so that the quilt can be put together during class instead of spending time sewing strips or what have you to make the blocks.
See you soon.

Someone was looking for a pattern like this. Using a stained glass technique. You can see how the smaller units went together to form the block. The pattern was placed atop 4-6 pieces of fabric and then cut along the lines. You then moved the fabric into stacks of color. The units went together following numbers on the pattern. One is sewn to two, then three is attached, etc. It was very easy to construct.
