stars-n-dots

The first month of the Fly Away Home BOM is underway.  My quilty friends, Richla and Ellen, are hosting it.  Richla is a longarm quilter and she has quilted some of my quilts. Ellen is the creator of the Grip & Stitch free-motion quilting disks.  Last spring they asked me to design an exclusive mystery quilt block-of-the-month program for them. This month everyone is making stars and dots!  What could it be?? Well, that is the mystery. You won’t know until the very end.

The fabric is all from Riley Blake and many of the fabrics are part of the Posy Garden collection by Carina Gardner. If you missed the initial sign-up, never fear! Richla and Ellen don’t want you to miss out. They are making arrangements to add a few more people.  Go to Richla’s blog for more information, or email her directly to sign up. I hear that everyone is having fun making blocks and there will be awesome giveaways to boot.

Here’s a sneaky peek of the Mystery Block-of-the-Month called Fly Away Home that my friends Richla and Ellen are hosting.  The BOM starts in September and features some really fun Riley Blake fabrics.  They asked me to design a one-of-a-kind quilt for them, not to be found anywhere until September 2017 when the mystery is revealed and the quilts are finished.

Spots are running out so head on over to Richla’s blog for all the details! You won’t want to miss out on this chance to sew along!

My friends Richla and Ellen are going to be hosting a Mystery block-of-the-month starting in September for which they commissioned me to design a quilt, a one-of-kind quilt that won’t be found anywhere else. We are excited about this collaborative effort!  Sign ups are happening right now, so if you are at all interested…. go check out the details on Richla’s blog.

All the fabrics are from Riley Blake and the main theme fabrics are part of the Posy Garden collection.  The pattern was designed with the intermediate quilter in mind.  An advanced beginner will be pushed out of their comfort zone and challenged to improve their skills. Advanced quilters will not be bored with the variety of techniques that will be explored. I hope you will join us!
