Quilting, creating, even running a quilt related business can be very isolating. We set aside "me time" to work on our creations,, but that time is often spent alone in our sewing rooms, with only our sewing machines for company. With this tendency to hibernate in our sewing rooms, many of us crave a quilting community where we can join with other quilters who like to do the things we like to do! We want to hang out with people who enjoy fabrics, sewing, and learning about our quilt hobby. Where do you find your quilting community?

Over the past nine months over 275 of our customers and students have been participating in a Block of the Month quilt program online to learn to use their Leaves Galore and Hearts and More templates. On Friday I posted the final installment of our Block of the Month pattern on my website. I can not wait to see the progress of my students and to start posting photos of the finished quilts!
A recent visitor to the booth made us smile when she said "I've watched your videos so many times, they talk back to me - 'not you again'".
That is exactly why I made the videos - so you can watch and learn - as many times as you need. You can access the videos from my website or directly in YouTube by searching on "Sue Pelland Designs".
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!
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.
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.
