SHIRTING FABRIC QUILTS
Many thanks to everyone who participated in the quilt challenge. Special congratulations to the winners. You were all winners which is why I gave you the fat quarters. It was an amazing array of interesting quilt designs. From NYC skyline to mazes and strips, everyone had some thing to offer. I do hope there will be enough interest to repeat the effort in the fall.
We "sold " 30 bags, some people who missed out on the totes still managed to get enough shirt fabric to make a quilt, AND everyone seemed to enjoy the challenge and variety.
Those of you with fabric who were NOT able to get your quilt in for June, please bring it in September, we collected 28, several people made 4, yes we were that generous!!!!! I will bag up lots of fabric over the summer and have them available along with bits and pieces in the fall.
In addition i look forward to seeing your amazing useful creations from the shirts. Some were definitely more challenging than others but then it would not be fun if it were easy? Right.,
Contact me if you need any fabric immediately.
Put shirt fabric or and quilts in subject line please!
There is no workshop in September.
Our workshop schedule starts in October with Cyndi Souter and a theme that is perfect for our upcoming show: Finishing Techniques for Art Quilters.
