Happy National Quilting Day!

Hope you’re able to spend the day immersed in quilty activities!

This morning I attended a kick-off session for the new Saturday Sampler at Tiny Stitches Quilt Shop. I sat through the hour long infomercial, as the shop owner called it, only to discover that I was supposed to sign up in advance for the project I wanted to make. Silly me, I’d looked at the projects online, but wanted to see them in person before committing to any year long endeavor. This actually turned out to be a good thing. The shop runs two BOM cycles each year. BOM cycle 1 (August start) was closed to new members.. Of course, this was the project that appealed to me! BOM cycle 2 (March start) had limited availability still remaining for one of the projects. My in-person inspection of the available project confirmed my earlier opinion that I did not want to make it, so I left empty-handed. It was not a complete waste of time, however. I now understand how the Saturday Sampler works at this shop. I also got the name of a really good, reasonably priced long-arm quilter who lives nearby AND was able to see actual quilts she’d recently done for a customer (the customer brought them for show & tell).

This afternoon, I’ll straighten up my studio and stream my fave quilty shows on YouTube while I finish up a project:

Stay quilting my friends!
