Quarantine Show and Tell
If you send me pictures of the projects you finish in the stay at home era, I will post them here for everyone to see and enjoy. Describe them like you would at show and tell. We will applaud your efforts, even if you can’t hear the applause.
Made masks for Alice Hyde & Burke EMS. Son requested masks for friends & self in AZ, so tried a new Cricut pattern. Trying Attic Windows on a panel. Everyone stay safe.
Made this as a special order for a customer who loves daschunds. The fabric was a special order from Spoonflower – an online shop that will create fabric design for you in your choice of fabrics from cotton to canvas to linen or spandex and anything in between. It’ s a little pricey but not bad. This fabric was a 100% cotton home Dec type canvas 54″ wide at about $25 per yard. Good resource if you need it.
Well not exactly a quilt in this go but here is my latest creation. A pile of thrift store and prior fitting jeans, Jean shirt,Jean embroidered material. My vision, end product! Working in two quilts that I started at the Atlanta sewing expo that cancelled mid stream.
Kudos to Sheila Connors
The Ubushobozi Table Runner and Quilt kits designed by Sheila have appeared in the Missouri Star Company website.
The charms and fabric come from the Ubushobozi Womens Collective and benefits their efforts to enrich womens lives.
The guild moving forward
The covid-19 has caused the guild leadership to make some tough decisions. It has been decided to suspend meetings and workshops for near future. Our May Quilt show has been canceled for now and perhaps moved to the fall or later. The April Quilt Camp has been canceled. At this time we have Marlous Carter in August and Lynn Wheatley in September scheduled. Decisions on keeeping them on the schedule will depend on whether we are back to normal by then.
Shows in Lancaster, PA, Paducah, KY. and Manchester, NH are canceled. VQF is still on, but they are extending the ability to cancel registration for classes till the end of May. Money will be refunded. Unknown about quilt fees.
These are hard decisions to make, but we are sure that these are the right decisions to make.
Please stay safe. Hope you all stay well.
