Post Number 2

When I spoke of likeing Sue Spargo designs, this is a sample. This quilt is called "Flower Bed" and I have completed two and am working on number Three. I like the small blocks and find each one of them fun to embellish. Beads and ribbon and rick rack have taken over several containers so as to have many choices. All kinds of threads are useful to add touches of color and unique embroidery stitches. If you are looking for a smallish size quilt to try out your wool skills, this is a good one to begin on.

I have a class at Pioneer Quilts that is called The Spargonians....a combination of Spargo and Oregonians. We meet once a month on the last Sat. of the month from 11:30-2:30 to work on whatever Sue Spargo project you are currently working on. It is great for inspiration and encouragement. We just had a birthday party this last Sat. for our mentor, Sue. Join us anytime.

This book is called Book of Days and it is a template for making a handmade book that you can use for a journal or planner or make it for someone special. I am teaching this next Monday. It is fun to do and you can personalize it in so many different ways. Call Pioneer Quilts, 503.654.1555

I have been asked to be the featured quilter at the Sandy Quilt Show at the end of June. Here is the website to see more about the show.

I am very excited to be included and am on a mission to finish several things to bring. It is a wonderful quilt show and there are great vendors. Here is more information.

I hope you will consider coming for a visit. I will have a friendship quilt for you to sign and lots of quilts and pincushions and other stuff!

Until next time..keep on stitching.
