Everyone Loves a Challenge

I am happy to announce my first ever Appliqué Design Challenge.  You know how much I love Mistyfuse and FreeSpirit fabrics so I'm excited to have them as co-sponsors.  Your challenge is to create an original quilt design using any appliqué elements that you can cut with my Leaves Galore and/or Hearts and More templates.  All designers will start with one of four Cameo panels by Kaffe Fassett for FreeSpirit.  Your final quilt will be 30" x 30" which gives you space to create your own design of applique elements around the Cameo panel.

Generation Q and Quilter's Stash Box

Two exciting things are happening with Hearts and More this week.  First, Generation Q magazine is blogging about and having a contest to win my book and a small set of Hearts and More tools and a copy of my new book!  They have asked readers to comment on what you would write on the hearts in this sweet little Conversation Hearts quilt!  In the comments below, I will put a link to the Generation Q contest so you can go, write a sweet saying, and win a copy of my book and tools!  

Thimble Pleasures Quilt Guild Modern Challenge

Sue, Donna, and Linda Gosselin, a SPD Certified Instructor, belong to Thimble Pleasures Quilt Guild and we recently revealed our 2016 Challenges. The theme for challenge was "modern".  To participate, we purchased a bag that contained two fat quarters and two crayons.  We had to use both the fabrics in the bag but could add four additional fabrics as long as they matched the colors of the crayons.  The fat quarters were a Kona white and a gray fabric with some circles and helped unify the finished pieces.

Next stop – Syracuse, NY – AQS Quilt Week July 27-30

Who else is going to AQS Quilt Week in Syracuse?  Joanne and I will be in booth # 1821 with all our Sue Pelland Designs products.  We do demos all day long so stop by and learn about the Leaves Galore and Hearts and More templates.  Even if you’ve seen our demos before, we are always adding new tips and techniques to our talk so it is worth a stop.

The new website is online today, my new book has arrived and we are heading to Paducah in the wee hours of the morning.  With so much going on, there are bound to be a few snags.  Please be patient this week as we get out all the book orders and break in our new shop.  

One Day to Sewing Room I Can Sew In!

Friday arrives and it’s SHOPPING DAY!  Armed with my lists, my good intentions and my credit cards, I am off to the shops to find all the bins, baskets, and labels I need to make my sewing room livable again.  Then off to the fun stuff, the fabric store where I stock up on my list of fabrics and notions.  I try not to stray too far from the list.  The eye candy on the shelves can stay on those shelves unless it is going to help me finish my PHDs, my Projects that are Half Done!
